At the heart of each optometry practice is the strength of its staff! For many, this means going the extra mile to provide the best patient care possible.
That’s why Eyefinity is excited to join the celebration for Paraoptometric Week! “An annual opportunity to recognize paraoptometrics for the value they contribute to the success of optometric practices,” according to the American Optometric Association, this week marks an opportunity to appreciate your staff who put in the extra hard work for your practice’s success.
Certified Paraoptometrics attain national recognition through certification by demonstrating an understanding of the concepts used in optometric care, passing an exam designed to challenge participants across a variety of topics including basic science, clinical principles and procedures, ophthalmic optics and dispensing, and professional issues. Equipped with the knowledge to exceed patient expectations, the value CPOs add to their practice is immeasurable.
Review sites are important tools that patients use to find and rate their doctors. But that doesn’t mean you have to let these sites have the final say. Here are some tips on how you can handle negative customer reviews online.
Running an optometric practice involves many tasks beyond patient exams. There are business considerations, including attracting and retaining patients, staffing, billing, and tracking patient eye health over time. Most practices integrate a blend of software packages to streamline both operational and medical-related tasks.

Hello from the other side. I am happy to report that all is going great with our implementation of Eyefinity EHR. I was never really worried about it, but I did have first day jitters. The nervousness is really more of a mind game than anything else. It is funny how you are either excited to get started or nervous about the unknown. We always try to keep a positive perspective, as it changes the outcome and outlook of the day for the better. Continue reading “Eyefinity EHR: Check”

CMS is making some changes to the ICD-10-CM codes, effective October 1, 2016. In some cases, CMS added new codes and retired others. In other cases, only the description associated with the code changed.
Although these changes are not nearly as sweeping as the transition from ICD-9 to ICD-10 last year, there are some similarities:
October 1 is the so-called “cutover date.” The updated codes apply only to claims with a service date of October 1 or later. Claims with a service date of September 30 or earlier will continue to use the current codes.
Eyefinity has your back. We’re currently updating Eyefinity EHR and ExamWRITER to properly code your exams based on the selections you make during the exam and the date of service. In other words, keep coding the way you always have, and we’ll take care of the rest. We’re also updating the ICD-10 codes in our practice management systems for billing and reporting.
Billers should familiarize themselves with the changes. Billers should be prepared to verify that the correct codes are appearing on claims
Eyefinity has identified over 400 ICD-10 changes that apply to eyecare. Code changes to the following areas take effect on October 1, 2016:
Retinal vein occlusion
Age-related macular degeneration
Primary open-angle glaucoma
Postprocedural hematoma or seroma
We anticipate that CMS will modify ICD-10 codes slightly every year.
We’re adding the ICD-10 changes to OfficeMate/ExamWRITER now, which will be available in a service pack in September. You’ll need to download and install the service pack before October 1 to avoid any disruption in billing.
Eyefinity EHR, Eyefinity Practice Management, and AcuityLogic updates are scheduled in September and will include all of the ICD-10 updates.
