As an eye care professional, it is important to remember that your patients have different knowledge than you do about diseases and terminology. Educating patients using ophthalmic imaging tools promotes proactive eye care and improves treatment results.
Managing an environmentally friendly optometry office where hundreds of patients move seamlessly from check-in to check-out each month is much easier when you invest in your business and use an optometry EHR that works as you do. Efficiently managing patient flow impacts staff performance, patient experiences, and revenue growth.
Patient portals have been around for years. However, during the COVID-19 pandemic, many eye care providers realize how important this technology is to move patient care forward in an ever-increasing digital healthcare and telehealth and telemedicine environment.
When it comes to your optometry website, there's more to consider than just content. Creating useful content is important, but you have to keep the user in mind. And pay attention to things like user experience (UX) and how easy it is for people to find your website and content.
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.
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.
