Why HealthxMD?

HealthxMD provides an ultrasound diagnostic platform/transcranial doppler test (TCD) that measures the velocity of blood in the ocular and neurovascular systems. With a turn-key program that places the ultrasound technology and technician in the eye care practice, a patient can be rapidly evaluated for their risk of TIA, CVA, OCA, neurological vascular disorders, ophthalmic ischemia or occlusion, detection of intracranial arteriosclerosis, detection of embolization, and stroke.

At its core, TCD testing has been a valuable diagnostic tool since the mid-1980s for those patients who have histories consistent with being at risk of stroke or other cardiovascular events. Normally delivered in a hospital environment due to its portability, TCD was introduced in ophthalmic practices beginning around 2009. In recent years due to continual clinical articles being written that addresses the correlation between certain ophthalmic diseases and risk of stroke/cardiovascular events, TCD services via HealthxMD have seen a steady increase in client expansion.

HealthxMD allows practices to grow without adding more patients. By practicing a more comprehensive standard of eye care, practices increase the number of clinical services you provide to each patient. HealthxMD developed a turn-key platform to address the healthcare needs of patients who sit in your waiting rooms each and every day.

Prime candidates to have a TCD ordered are ones with diabetes, diabetic retinopathy, glaucoma or glaucoma suspect, WET AMD, CRVO, BRVO, prior history of heart attack or stroke, and many more conditions.
