TeleROP™ allows hospitals and care providers to screen and monitor newborns for the leading cause of blindness in children, retinopathy of prematurity (ROP). Although the incidence of ROP is low, the stakes are high for the parent and patient, as well as hospitals given the legal implications that may accompany undiagnosed disease or delayed treatment. Our TeleROP program helps put parents and hospitals at ease knowing newborns have access to timely assessment by skilled ROP professionals.

16,000 infants develop ROP
Our TeleROP program is flexible and can be modified to meet the needs of each hospital.
