Frequently Asked Questions
How does RDx® work?
RDx® connects you to your exam room via video conference and allows you to perform a guided subjective exam and consultation using your remotely-operated CV-5000S. When the refraction is finished, you may consult with the patient in real-time and generate a glasses prescription.
How will I access my patient’s charts as the remote doctor?
In conjunction with Topcon’s Harmony data management software, RDx® gives you access to your patients’ health history (imported from your EHR), imaging and clinical data within the RDx® telehealth platform, so you have all of the information you need during the virtual visit.
What will my patient experience as part of the RDx® visit?
Your patient will be greeted and checked in by your usual front desk staff. They will be shown into the remote exam room by one of your staff members and seated in front of the automated phoropter. You (the remote doctor) will be connected to the exam room and will appear on TV monitor. The entire refraction will be completed remotely. After the patient is satisfied and the best prescription is determined, the prescription is available for the doctor to review and sign.
What does my technician need to do during an RDx® remote consultation?
Your technician will greet the patient and perform all of the pretests. When complete, your technician uploads the pretest results to RDx® software and moves the Patient Card in the RDx® software into the “Ready for Exam” status. This is when you join the live video session and begin interacting with the patient. When you’re ready to begin the remote refraction, the technician ensures the phoropter head is correctly positioned in front of the patient. When the exam ends, your technician will escort the patient out of the exam room.
