Congratulations to 2015 Florida Companies to Watch winner, Intelligent Retinal Imaging Systems (IRIS), for being awarded the 2015 North America Frost & Sullivan Award for New Product Innovation, which is awarded every year to a “company that has developed an innovative element in a product by leveraging leading-edge technologies.”
IRIS was presented with this award for their advances in retinopathy technology, which will not only improve the processes by which diabetic retinopathy is diagnosed, but will also increase the quality of patient care. According to Frost & Sullivan Research Analyst Swathi Allada, “the IRIS technology can both assess and detect the presence of micro aneurysms at the back of the eye, one of the first signs of diabetic retinopathy. The retinal imaging system, along with telemedicine, offers numerous advantages such as timely intervention, better treatment outcomes and elimination of the need for a non-physician eye care professional.”
These developments fall directly in-line with the mission of the company and the vision that belongs to CEO Jason Crawford. The goal of IRIS is to end preventable blindness. The company does this by improving the processes and technology used, as well as ensuring the best quality of patient care. This is achieved through cloud-based services to ensure better exams and better procedures for patients.
