6 Practices Win Sight for Students® Gift Certificates for More Than 500 Students

On behalf of 6 practices that ordered on eBuy at eyefinity.com this fall, more than 500 students will receive the gift of sight with free eye exams and eyewear from the VSP Sight for Students program. As winners in a recent eBuy campaign, the 6 practices were able to choose a school in their community to receive the Sight for Students gift certificates and a $500 Staples gift card for school supplies.


Winning practices and schools are:

  • Mercedeh Motameni, OD, FAAO –Paul Revere Charter Middle School, Los Angeles, CA
  • Ocotillo Eyecare –Hamilton High School, Chandler, AZ
  • Everett Family Vision –Discovery Elementary School, Everett, WA
  • Cutler Eye Care –Joliet West High School, Joliet, IL
  • Cullom Eye & Laser Center – Matthew Whaley Elementary School, Williamsburg, VA
  • San Ramon Optometric Group –Twin Creeks Elementary School, San Ramon, CA

During the 6-week campaign, any practice ordering on eBuy needed to order a minimum of 5 frames per week to qualify for a weekly drawing. Winners were randomly drawn from all practices that ordered the minimum.

Coinciding with the spirit of giving at this time of year, the outcome of this campaign not only helped students who normally wouldn’t be able to afford eyecare, it also connected more than 500 new patients to local private-practice eye doctors.

VSP fully funds the Sight for Students program, paying practices to provide the services and dispense the eyewear. The gift certificates are redeemable with VSP providers on the Choice network who carry Altair frames. To join the Choice network, please call the VSP Customer Service Department at 800.615.1883. To carry Altair frames, please call Altair at 800.505.5557. For more information regarding the Sight for Students program, visit their website at www.SightforStudents.org.

New “Measure by Measure” Meaningful Use Videos Available

Meaningful Use Resource Center

Many of our OfficeMate/ExamWRITER v10 users who are working to achieve meaningful use during the last 90 days in 2011 and who are ramping up to achieve meaningful use in 2012 have contacted us with questions about how to meet the specific core and menu set measures that are part of the EHR Incentive Program. We have recently developed and published 24 new, short videos the detail the following information:

  • Measure objectives
  • Explanation of how to achieve the measures
  • Specific, detailed instructions that show you how to achieve the measures
  • Practical insights and perspective from Dr. James Kirchner, Eyefinity Chief Professional Officer, on how to achieve the measures

Doctors and staff members can now click to view to these short videos on the Meaningful Use Starter Kit and Meaningful Use training web pages. Although longer meaningful use overview videos have been available since last summer on the Meaningful Use Starter Kit, these new videos allow you to more quickly find the information that you need about specific individual measures. You can spend only a few minutes watching a video and then you can complete the tasks demonstrated in the video in OfficeMate/ExamWRITER v10 to achieve meaningful use. After you have achieved meaningful use, you simply need to complete the attestation process to receive your incentive money!

Eyefinity is your trusted partner as you work to achieve meaningful use. Visit the Meaningful Resource Center for information to guide you through the meaningful use objectives to help you qualify for federal stimulus dollars. You’ll find educational tools and videos, including the 24 new videos, that provide practical strategies to help you achieve meaningful use and take full advantage of stimulus money through the use of OfficeMate/ExamWRITER. Eyefinity is dedicated to supporting you with the resources you need as you implement a certified product and walk the path towards meaningful use.

Technology for today and tomorrow…thoughts from Dr. Kirchner

James Kirchner, OD

Technology’s impact on our lives is increasingly evident. The recent passing of Steve Jobs caused the world to reflect upon these advances and how rapidly they’re happening. Four years ago we hadn’t heard of an app—now there are thousands. It’s hard to realize the first iPadwas delivered to us less than 24 months ago! The entire global technology community appears to be moving at the speed of light. Great companies not only keep up, but as Apple, Microsoft, and Google demonstrate, they lead. Aggressive innovation is the hallmark of technology leaders. At Eyefinity®, we clearly understand and embrace this role.

As the leader in technology services and products for the eyecare industry, Eyefinity is driven to provide a steady stream of new tools providers need to meet the demands of an evolving, competitive, opthalmic market. Our mission is to assist you, our customer, in achieving success in your business.

Eyefinity is committed to empowering the eyecare professional through personalized service and innovative e-business solutions. Our e-business solutions enable you to expand and promote your practice in the most cost-effective manner, so you can focus on your service for patients. Eyefinity offers the widest spectrum of e-business management resources: from product ordering, to insurance claim processing for government and commercial carriers, to developing marketing strategies.

Recently, Eyefinity rebranded Business Essentials as eyeVantage. The online collection of key learnings, proprietary tools, and best practices in eyeVantage lay the foundation for successful practices. This is just the beginning of the business resources that will become available on eyeVantage.

The recent release of OfficeMate/ExamWRITER v10.5 is the newest version of our CCHIT-certified Complete EHR. Our v10 software series enabled a large number of users to receive stimulus payments in 2011, and we anticipate an even larger majority to receive incentive payments in 2012. We’re adamant about our commitment to continually strengthen and improve our OfficeMate/ExamWRITER software. This product serves more practices in the U.S.than all competitors combined, and it’s here to stay. We are serious about our responsibility and commitment to provide and support OfficeMate/ExamWRITER, both now and in the future.

As the technology leader in our industry, we understand our critical role in developing innovative solutions. We’re in the midst of developing many new resources to meet the demands of the evolving ophthalmic market. Watch for announcements about developments in AcuityLogic, our complete, cloud-based EHR suite that allows practices to run their business through the “cloud,” or Internet. We’re committed to leading the industry in this realm.

Eyefinity is here for you today. As an innovative technology leader and your partner, we’ll continue to provide you with the resources for your success tomorrow. This is our mission and our sole reason for existence.
