"There is a great demand for healthcare services through digital platforms, amplified by the restrictions brought on by COVID-19,” CEO Adam Cegielski said in a statement. “Professionals are looking for evidence-based, outcome-oriented solutions that offer virtual health resources for their patients, while patients are looking for a vision care experience comparable to in-person visits. Binovi Connect will allow us to scale our reach and service offering globally."
Strategic telehealth industry partnerships and collaborations will enable providers to gain a significant edge with service offerings, the company said, and the Binovi Platform resources are compatible with a variety of software and hardware support solutions. The company is expecting to launch a Beta version of the app by the fiscal first quarter of 2021.
Binovi is targeting the more than 50 million students enrolled in K-12 education in North America. A fifth of the students have undetected binocular vision problems, the company said. Binovi Connect will allow users to get the benefit of quick screening, immediate optometric evaluation, and training and therapy.
"We are very excited to offer this leading solution as a standard feature to all of our relationships," Chairman Terry Booth said in a statement. "We strive to connect users with our vast global provider network through this pandemic and beyond."
With Binovi Connect, users can browse through the company’s provider network and choose professionals that meet their medical needs, performance goals, personal preferences, budget and schedule.
Zooming out, Binovi Connect will enable school boards, in collaboration with vision specialists, to conduct vision screening as part of the curriculum, the company said. Ultimately, the goal is to link knowledgeable vision care providers with patients, broadening the reach for practitioners and improving accessibility for patients.
"Binovi uses cutting-edge technology and an innovative approach to bring a telehealth solution to market, comprised of a suite of tools, including testing, training, and education for vision care providers around the world,” Chief Technology Officer Sam Mithani said. “With Binovi Connect, we are bringing all this functionality to our end users - students, athletes, vision therapy and concussion patients — mediated by our network of specialists — all remotely.”
