Ceeable and Dr. Agarwal's Eye Hospitals Receive Financing from Techemerge and IFC Program for a Digital Health Program

Partnership will enable a digital health visual testing technology for glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy and macular degeneration
    BOSTON, MA, November 16, 2016 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Ceeable, Inc. and Dr. Agarwal's Eye Hospitals Group have been selected by Techemerge and IFC to receive pilot program financing to implement the Ceeable CVFA technology at select hospitals in the Dr. Agarwal's Hospital system. The basis for the pilot program is to demonstrate the clinical utility and efficiency of a digital health ophthalmology solution as compared to traditional test instruments.

"The Techemerge program involved an extensive selection process with over 300 applicants and we are honored to be chosen and partnered with Dr. Agarwal's Hospitals in this joint effort," says Chris Adams, CEO of Ceeable. "The implementation of a digital health solution will enhance our testing efficiencies and bring advanced functional testing to more patients at lower costs," says, Dr. Anosh Agarwal, COO of Dr. Agarwal's Hospitals.

The CVFA can be used in both traditional clinical settings for visual exams and non-traditional settings, from shopping malls to villages. The CVFA is highly mobile and can be accessed from anywhere at any time using a tablet computer and internet connection. This flexibility provides much greater access to patients and caregivers. The Ceeable technology has been used to detect retinal disease on thousands of patients worldwide.
