CORALVILLE, Iowa — Digital Diagnostics is expanding its flagship product, LumineticsCore, into nine Labcorp patient service centers in Alabama – including four in North Alabama.
Providing access to care for people with diabetes in a lab setting, Digital Diagnostics uses the De Novo FDA-cleared autonomous artificial intelligence diagnostic system to detect diabetic retinopathy during patient encounters by analyzing retinal images for signs of disease without the need for a specialist to interpret the images. Digital Diagnostics is an artificial intelligence diagnostic health care company based in Iowa.
LumineticsCore is improving access and reducing the gap in care for many diabetes patients and providers. The exam is the only pairing of autonomous AI in a laboratory service center setting.
In collaboration with Labcorp, patients can visit one of the nine LabCorp PSC locations in Alabama for the LumineticsCore testing.
In Huntsville, the Labcorp locations are 301 Governors Drive and 333 Whitesport Drive. Labcorp is also offering exams in Hartselle and and Cullman.
Other Labcorp testing locations in Alabama include Anniston; Birmingham; Sylacauga; Fairhope; and Foley.
The eye exam is ordered by physicians through and with results delivered to their electronic medical record system similar to other Labcorp tests.
The diabetic retina exam is tailored for those with diabetes to prevent visual loss and blindness but does not replace the eight-point eye exam.
“This strategic relationship with Labcorp to bring LumineticsCore to their patient service centers aligns with their mission to improve health and improve lives,” said Digital Diagnostics’ co-founder, President and COO Seth Rainford. “Offering this important exam in locations that are easily accessible, coupled with our mission to work with the health care ecosystem, furthers our collective goal of improving patient outcomes.”
Lenny Monsour, senior vice president of Labcorp Diagnostic’s Southeast division, said they are always seeking innovative ways to bring convenient care to patients and providers.
“Working with Digital Diagnostics allows us to offer an expanded set of services to our patients, while empowering our providers with more ways to serve the health care needs of their local communities,” he said.
After a provider places an order for the LumineticsCore exam, Digital Diagnostics recommends scheduling an appointment for “routine labwork” at the Labcorp Patient portal for the exam. Additional laboratory tests can also be scheduled during the same visit.
