Optometry and optical practices are embracing modern technology more than ever before, abandoning manual approaches that hinder revenue potential and the ability to provide top-tier patient care. Embracing technology is an essential step for improving your processes. However, maximizing technology is how you advance those processes.
Marketing your eye care practice may frequently take a backseat to other operational and patient care initiatives. For a practice to be successful long-term, marketing is an investment that must be made.
Providing the best possible patient care involves continually creating a positive experience in your optometry practice. Patient scheduling is a common source of friction for both parties—your staff and your patients.
Running a successful optometry practice requires a keen eye for identifying practice management opportunities while finding innovative ways to increase patient satisfaction. The definition of success for any business is revenue growth. To grow your optometry practice, your patients need to be happy and your staff needs to be productive.
Does your eye care business comply with payment security standards and use compliant payment processing solutions for credit and debit card transactions? Is your payment solution using point-to-point encryption, PCI compliance, tokenization, and EMV technology?
First Insight Corporation, developer of MaximEyes certified EHR and practice management software for eye care professionals, and EyeCare Prime (a wholly-owned subsidiary of CooperVision), have formed a partnership to streamline connections between MaximEyes software and Prime Nexus patient relationship management solutions.
HIPAA compliance and HIPAA risk assessments are challenging tasks for many optometry and ophthalmology practices. There is one compliance task you can't do once then sweep under the rug—and that's to perform a HIPAA security risk assessment or risk analysis regularly for your business.
Optometry practices often don't spend enough time on their own business because they're too busy with patient care. But patient care isn't the only concern. Managing your business effectively and efficiently is crucial to the success of your optometry practice.
What do eye care professionals really think about their EHR system? In September of 2018, eye care professionals who stopped by our booth at Vision Expo West completed a survey to reveal their opinions.
