Sister companies Medisoft and Heidelberg Engineering have joined forces to launch the newest version of their data management platform.

Known as mediSIGHT, it was first demonstrated at the Royal College of Ophthalmologists’ Annual Congress in Liverpool, and has been endorsed by more than 5,000 users of Medisoft’s software worldwide.

MediSIGHT has new features for medical retina, vitreoretinal and cataract surgeons, showcasing the benefits of using Heidelberg’s Spectralis for image capture, and it integrates with other ophthalmic devices via the HEYEX 2 image management system. This allowed clinical teams to see a picture of a patient’s entire ophthalmic history all on one screen, a statement said.

Heidelberg Engineering UK director Krysten Williams added: ‘Having data at your fingertips in seconds provides the very best means of planning your clinic and future budgeting needs. Delegates were particularly impressed with the personalised letters that are automatically generated after a visit or procedure. It is difficult to over-estimate the value of effective audits to understand and improve patient outcomes.’
