Telemedicine Deployment & Partnerships (Libya, Djibouti, Turkey)

Perim Associates works closely with a number of U.S. based technology companies to help them expand operations in the Middle East and Africa.  One example is, a California-based telemedicine provider addressing the problem of retinopathy (“DR”), a complication of diabetes  that frequently results in the loss of sight.  We have led expansion opportunities, created local partnerships, trainings and program pilots in three countries, with several others in progress.   With EyePACS software and ocular imaging package, local polyclinics are able to screen large numbers of diabetic patients for DR, and refer urgent cases for laser surgery.   EyePACS uses sophisticated screening algorithms, developed in partnership with MIT and Google.
