Optovue Interface

ExamWRITER interacts with the Optovue software as follows:

  • Before the capture process when patient information is transferred from ExamWRITER to the Optovue software to create or update retinal images
  • During the review process when new or existing Optovue retinal images are available for on-screen review

The Optovue interface saves equipment data to the OfficeMate DATA folder on the OfficeMate server. You can view the images on all computers that have ExamWRITER installed and the Optovue review interface enabled.

Network Connection Method

The Optovue interface operates on a Windows-embedded computer. The Optovue interface can use only one camera per Terminal Server.

  • You must install ExamWRITER on the computer to which the Optovue equipment is connected.
  • Back up your Optovue data. For recommended backup procedures, contact Optovue.
  • If you began using Optovue before ExamWRITER, your previously captured Optovue retinal images are not linked to patient exams in ExamWRITER. Only retinal images captured with the ExamWRITER equipment interface are linked to patient exams in ExamWRITER.
