Integrated care allows information exchange among health professionals. In diabetes, a better control of outcomes and a reduction of the need for hospital admission were noticed worldwide. Teleretinography, performed in Diabetology Units (DUs), graded by a remote ophthalmologist, and forwarded to general practitioners (GPs), can cost-effectively identify retinal microangiopathy. In our DU, participating in a national diabetes integrated care program (IGEA), in a ten-month period teleretinography was performed in 362 new patients not having undergone fundus examination in the last year or more. Retinal imaging allowed discovering stages of diabetic retinopathy (DR) to be referred to the hospital setting, and a series of comorbidities. The suggested care path and follow-up were rapidly forwarded to GPs for all patients, thus improving their adherence to guidelines. These advantages and other important ones, such as reducing fundus examinations in ophthalmic settings and conveying information into the patient's Electronic Health Record, make teleretinography worth becoming part of the integrated care process in diabetic patients.
