Clinical Applications Product Manager

Jake brings a diverse array of experiences to the team with over 10 years of experience in the ophthalmology field. He has technical experience in retinal imaging, angiography, and diagnostic equipment. Most recently, he’s been applying his expertise to software integration in the clinic setting, and he loves introducing our customers to the cutting edge of technology and data unification. When Jake isn’t supporting our customers in getting the most out of their Unified experience, you can find him exploring the outdoors on his OneWheel or spending time with his family.

Unified Imaging provides a cloud-based system for image capture, storage, and retrieval of ophthalmic instrument print data that interfaces with any instrument capable of printing.
The system was developed from the ground-up to be user friendly, inexpensive and to easily integrate into any office workflow.
The Unified Imaging solution is immediately applicable to practices with both old and new ophthalmic diagnostic equipment. Because we are not tied to any manufacturer, our instrument agnostic approach allows us to capture almost all image based instrument data.
The result is a single, simplified solution that allows eye care professionals to see a consolidated view of all patient data directly from the patient’s chart.
