Zeiss Visual Field Machine Statement of Need Background: The Lebanon VA Medical Center (LVAMC) has a requirement for one (1) Zeiss Visual Field Machine, HFA3 Model 860 with Liquid Trial Lens, RelEYE, Kinetic, GPA, Heat Trk., Gaze Trk., Printer, and Table. The machine is to be utilized in a clinic setting in the York Outpatient Clinic. The LVAMC providers presently utilize this product in the Lebanon Facility, and the Lancaster Facility to service patients and we would like to maintain continuity in care, as well as allow for transmission of data between facilities with the use of Zeiss Forum which connects all equipment for immediate access of data regardless of where patient is cared for. Scope of Work: The Zeiss Visual Field Machine is utilized as a diagnostic tool to determine Glaucoma disease in Optometry patients. Below are the characteristics needed to offer superior diagnostic care to the patient: Salient Characteristics of the HFA3 Model 860 Zeiss Visual Field Machine: Visual Field Index (Summary measurement of visual field status expressed as a percent of a normal age-adjusted visual field) Simple and intuitive global index to determine the % visual field loss on every visual field. Will forecast future VFI index to show a rate of change. Less affected by cataract and cataract surgery Optimizes progression analysis Liquid Lens Technology Using Liquid Pressure, 1 Trail lens for patients Using liquid pressure, the new Liquid Trial Lens instantly delivers each patient's refractive correction. Reduces patient set up time by automatically loading each patients refractive correction from previous exam. The result is faster patient flow and reduced chance of error by not needing to select a lens during set up. Smart Touch Interface (Ready, Set, Test) Touch screen interface allows for a quicker more efficient work flow GPA (Guided Progression Analysis) Individualized patient management: Change from baseline is the most sensitive method to detect change. Progression analysis validated in the Early Manifest Glaucoma Trial Designed to automatically correct for cataract effects, test point location, severity and overall field status. Measures both changed from baseline and rate of change. Estimates risk of future vision loss. All test data from previous Humphrey Visual Fields can be passed and used on the new Humphrey Visual Fields. Manufacturer service contract Ensures prompt service with all parts availability Must have at least two service technicians within an hour drive of the VA. Must offer onsite service SITA (Swedish Interactive Threshold Algorithm) as an available testing strategy Most proven testing strategy for determining glaucoma and other visual field related diseases. Standard in the industry Dramatically reduces test time without sacrificing accuracy. Achieves the fastest possible test with less fatigue. Reliable results delivered SITA-SWAP (Blue-Yellow Perimetry) Provides early glaucoma detection Replaces the Full Threshold and FastPac strategies for testing SWAP visual fields due to the much shorter test times available when utilizing SITA SWAP. STATPAC Simplifies interpretation with intuitive graphics and plain language terms. Helps Identify statistically significant visual field loss on individual tests and between multiple tests over time. Differentiates between normal and abnormal visual fields for 14 normative databases, corrected for age, test point location and strategy. Must be able to import the visual fields from the old HFA into the new system and utilize both old and new data to create a single progression analysis report Manages and tracks glaucoma over time. Must be FDA validated progression analysis that enables the combination of old and new test into one report. Automated Patient Monitoring/Fixation Control (Video Eye Monitor, Heijl-Krakau Blindspot Monitor, Gaze Tracking, Head Tracking, Vertex Monitoring: Patented, two-variable gaze tracking measures the distance between pupil position and corneal reflex. Reliability tool so the clinician can assess the usefulness of the test results. High precision fixation monitoring, unaffected by the patient s head position or movement. Provides real time feedback and generates documentation of test reliability. Allows for superior accuracy in testing Must have the ability to track a patients gaze direction for each stimulis presented. Tracks pupil size and position relative to the trial lens coupled with automatic X, Y movement of the chin rest to correct for patient movements and misalignments. Kinetic Testing Emulates manual standard Goldmann perimetry. Present stimuli starting from 80 degrees (peripherally), 30 degrees (centrally), or anywhere you choose. Glaucoma Hemifield Test Powerful statistical tool to identify glaucomatous visual field loss. GHT compares local defects in 5 zones of the upper field with those found in mirror image zones in the lower hemifield Analyzes upper and lower hemifield test point differences in terms of deviations from the age-corrected normal reference field and then translates them into the probability domain, first in individual test point locations, and then for the whole central field. Must be able to compare testing quadrants and specify if the visual field is within, or outside normal limits. DICOM Conformant Must have IT connectivity with Forum Must offer bi-direction DICOM Must be able to import all raw data and algorithms of any previous HFA Efficient clinical presentation of structure/function information Streamlined clinic workflow. Creates modality worklist. Offers capabilities of combined structure/function reporting with Cirrus OCT on a 1 page report. HFA-Net Pro Automatically synchronizes patient data between HFA II-i instruments connected to practice server Facilitates and EMR integration Improves electronic workflow and simplifies interpretation and treatment decisions Connectivity is a standard feature with HFA-Net Pro EasyConnect RCT (Remote Configuration Tool) Simplifies networking setup and configuration Enables printing to virtually any network printer Provides Increased Practice Efficiency RelEYE Fixation Monitoring System Legacy Data Pt. Data can be transferred from the HFAII, and HFAII-I, to the HFA 3 Data from this machine must integrate through FORUM   for statistical analysis with the other Humphrey visual fields at Lebanon VAMC Cumberland VACC, and Lancaster VACC        Operating System Windows 7-64 bit Internal Storage 500 Gb Electrical Requirement 100-120V 50/60 Hz, 4.0A Dimensions: 18.11 L, 20.47 W, 22.83 H (inches) Additional Information: The Zeiss Visual Field Machine is compatible with all other components requiring comprehensive Glaucoma and other eye disease testing used in the Lebanon VA Medical Center, such as Forum, and the Cirrus OCT Machine. This device offers superior functionality in diagnosing and ultimately treating debilitating ocular diseases. Installation: Contractor shall provide installation services for this procurement. Contractor shall install all applicable software and configure all network connections on the equipment. Contractor shall perform a full functionality test on the equipment to ensure that the equipment is properly sending data either directly to the Zeiss Forum or to its client PC and then to the Zeiss Forum. Contractor shall ensure any bi-directional communication is tested fully, allowing for sending and retrieval of data. Contractor shall provide Biomedical Engineering with all back up discs, licensure, software keys and passwords necessary to fully maintain the equipment. Clinical Training: Clinical training will be provided to staff on-site once installation is completed. Technical Training: Technical training will be provided to staff on-site once installation is completed. Warranty: All equipment, software and hardware shall have a minimum of one year warranty.
