Not sure what business expense qualifies as a tax deduction in 2018 for your eye care practice? The clock is ticking away to maximize Section 179 tax deductions for 2018. You’ll want to read this if you’re planning to purchase or lease ophthalmic diagnostic or office equipment, computers, office furniture, or practice management and EHR software before the end of the year.
For the seventh consecutive year, First Insight, developers of MaximEyes certified EHR and practice management software for eye care professionals, received the 2018 Learning! 100 award from the Elearning! Media Group for achieving excellence for “best-in-class” learning and development programs. This year First Insight was honored in the “performance” category for the MaximEyes Power Trainings we host in select cities throughout the United States.
Treating hundreds of patients each week is the norm for Dr. Greg Caldwell, who is one of four optometrists at a large eye care group practice in Pennsylvania. As their optometry practice continued to grow, paper charts and records caused daily inefficiencies for him, his staff, and colleagues.
So, you don’t trust the cloud? Moving your EHR system to the cloud from a local server is an important decision, and we understand the uncertainty that follows. However, there are many benefits that happen when you migrate to ophthalmology or optometry cloud-hosted EHR software that you may not know about.
First Insight Corporation, developers of MaximEyes certified EHR software for optometrists and ophthalmologists, announced that on March 26, 2018, MaximEyes EHR software (Version 3.0) received the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC Health IT) 2015 Edition Health IT Certification—meeting 100% of ONC’s base certification criteria.
Electronic Health Record (EHR) systems have evolved over time, thanks to advances in cloud-based and cloud-hosted technology. When it comes to improving productivity at any eye care practice, EHR software is the answer for modern ophthalmologists and optometrists.
After an in-depth two-year evaluation comparing various electronic health records (EHRs) used by optometrists, U.S. Vision and its affiliate, Nationwide Vision, selected MaximEyes EHR by First Insight Corporation as its new optometry EHR partner.
First Insight is delighted that U.S. Vision and Nationwide Vision took the time to carefully assess and compare various optometry EHRs over two years, before making its final selection.
For nearly 24 years, our promise to our customers is to always demonstrate a genuine concern for their optometry and ophthalmology business at every touch point—troubleshooting their problems and soliciting input for new eye care EHR and practice management solutions.
When Dr. Lowell Lebovitz began looking for optometry EHR software for his practice, he chose an eye care EHR and practice management system that would support long-term goals of continued growth, profitability, efficiency, and stability. He needed an EHR system that would improve business efficiencies, so he could spend less time on paperwork and more time with patients.
