This year’s awarded projects for the 2022 Accelerating Innovations to Market cycle showcased the breadth of UC San Diego’s research enterprise and diverse talent. We are proud to announce the 2022's recipients:
Digital Health System for Cost-Effective Glaucoma Screening, Management, and Surgical Intervention Through Artificial Intelligence
Investigators: Mark Christopher, Linda Zangwill, & Sally Baxter
Domain: Software-Based Healthcare Tech, A.I, Digital Platforms & Diagnostics
Glaucoma is a leading cause of blindness that affects more than 3 million people in the US and results in nearly $5 billion in annual costs. Glaucoma diagnosis and management is time-consuming, labor-intensive, and costly process. We have developed and validated a digital health system that enables early glaucoma detection and provides decision support for glaucoma managements. We are working to extend these tools to identify patients in need of surgical intervention and integrate them into clinical systems and workflows.
