Although I am a physician, Ponto Care was created to fulfill a personal need I had as a glaucoma patient. I was frustrated about having to visit an ophthalmology clinic every six months, but had to do so because of eye exams that were only available in clinics.
I thought 'Why can’t medical exams come to patients?
And that’s why Ponto Care was created - to do just that.
It's a simple idea, but one that required a fair amount of interdisciplinary collaboration with design, technology and medical experts, after all we were building and staffing a smart exam room to go wherever the patient chooses to be. All while keeping your own trusted doctor engaged throughout the entire medical evaluation process.
For that, we had to use the same protocols, equipment, and staff employed in clinics, while ensuring the patient experience was fundamentally safer and more convenient than what is offered in clinics. Together with doctors, we are revolutionizing the medical exam industry - making our healthcare ecosystem significantly more efficient and friendly for everyone.
