How to Leverage Your Office’s Web Presence

According to a study done by the Pew Internet and American Life Project, 80 percent of Internet users, 93 million Americans, search for health-related topics online. Moreover, 63 percent of them will decide to choose a healthcare provider because of a strong web presence.

But it’s not only a younger audience trusting medical professionals’ online image. Nine out of 10 patients age 60 and over say that past patients’ reviews are an essential factor in their decision-making process.

A strong web presence builds reputation and credibility, attracts new patients, and cultivates loyalty. Here are a few tips that may help your practice’s online presence grow.

How to Increase Profits and Efficiency During the End-of-year Rush

It happens every year. People lose track of time and before they know it, it’s the end of the year, and they need to use their benefits and Flexible Spending Account (FSA) funds before they expire.

The epiphany usually leads to a rush of patients scrambling to be seen by their eye doctors before the year concludes. Here are some quick tips to make sure your practice is ready, so that you can increase profits and efficiency:

Tell Inefficient EHRs to Take a Hike

Just as a bad pair of hiking boots can ruin a backpacking trip, an inefficient EHR can slow down an exam. In both hiking boots and EHRs, I look for three things:Dr. Manning Blog Post Image

  1. Do they fit my needs?
  2. Do they offer exceptional support?
  3. Do they work so well that I barely notice them?

Eyefinity EHR does all three and more. Eyefinity EHR enables you to get rid of paper and spend more time with your patients, instead of documenting.

Watch this video where I highlight some of my favorite features in Eyefinity EHR. And if you’re heading to Vision Expo West in September, I’d love to show you in person at booth 13065.

Easy Like Paper

Complicated and easy solution

by April Jasper, ODDr_Jasper_short

Do you remember the days of paper charts where we had a form which had all the normal findings on it? If a patient had all normal findings, we just circled all of them and saved ourselves boatloads of time! I think these forms are the primary reason doctors complain that EHR systems slow them down. What my team loves about Eyefinity EHR is that when all the findings are normal, we can select one button that marks the entire exam as normal and it auto populates. It feels a lot like the old days with paper. An EHR should make us more efficient, not less so; look for these features and follow this blog to read about them as I learn them with you.

One of the areas I have found refreshing as far as time savings and efficiency in my workflow goes, is the adaptive learning feature of Eyefinity EHR. The program “learns” the choices I make most frequently in my exam and offers them up on a list for me to select from, keeping me from having to scroll ad nauseam. The more I use the program, the more efficient it makes me. This is refreshing. Keep up the good work, Eyefinity! You’re making me a better doctor by giving me more time to spend with patients and reducing the time I spend staring at a computer.
