Company Summary

Glacier Medical Software was formed for the purpose of solving a challenging issue in neonatal care related to retinopathy of prematurity (ROP) disease. Without Glacier's flagship product called ROP Check, ROP care is rife with litigation risk. Wrongful blindness lawsuits are a high risk / low frequency event. ROP Check is proven to reduce often repeated errors that lead to litigation when used by hospital NICUs and ophthalmology practices.
