Better Lives with Care.Wallet: Conjunctivitis in the US

Conjunctivitis, or pink eye, causes swelling and redness in the inside of your eyelid and the white part of your eye. It can cause your eyes to feel itchy and painful. According to the US National Library of Medicine, about 3 to 6 million people get conjunctivitis each year in the United States. Pink eye is common and some types can spread very quickly and easily.

These symptoms may last from a few hours to several weeks, and may include: redness, itching, tearing, burning sensation, pus-like discharge and/or crusting of the eyelids. Because conjunctivitis causes inflammation of the small blood vessels in the conjunctiva to become more prominent, the white part of the patient’s eyes will appear pink or red. Pink eye is highly contagious and early diagnosis is important. Viral conjunctivitis can be cured with antibiotic eye drops or, in some cases, can clear up on its own.

Patients who suffer with pink eye aren’t usually inclined to visit a clinic or attend an in-office appointment. This is why Care.Wallet could be the perfect tool to help manage this issue. Once configured, it can help provide treatment through one simple smartphone application. It can be used for guidance and self-care treatments along with access to providers. Conjunctivitis often gets better within 10 days, on its own. But the How Are You Feeling Today (HAYFT) Care.Card will allow patients and doctors to monitor treatment changes, in real time.

With Care.Wallet, doctors can review records daily to not only monitor the patient’s condition but also give care recommendations without having to schedule an appointment. The doctor and patient can receive instant confirmation and notifications about the appointment, saving time for everyone involved.

Solve.Care will make it possible to effectively manage a patient’s health and make their treatment much more convenient than ever before.
