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.

Paraoptometric Recognition Week

An Opportunity to Shine the Spotlight on Your Staff


Eyefinity celebrates Paraoptometric Recognition Week!

There’s no debate that an optometry practice can’t run efficiently without a well-staffed office. For successful practices, this includes an experienced team with a wealth of knowledge in the industry. And for some, that includes having paraoptometrics that are CPO certified.

A CPO has attained national recognition via certification by demonstrating an understanding of the concepts used in optometric care.

According to Melissa Mueller, CPO, who currently manages the Optometric Center, P.A. in Boise, Idaho, and who has served on the Idaho Paraoptometric Board for eight years, “CPOs are committed to the optometry field as a career and not just a job.”

Stay Safe and Secure with Eyefinity

Before I head out for a ride on my bicycle, I make sure to check my tires and chain, and I never ride without a helmet. Protection and safety is something I always prioritize. The saadventure-bicycle-bike-161172me goes with how I view Eyefinity. Protection and safety of your data is something we hold with utmost importance.

With that in mind, I’m excited that the Electronic Healthcare Network Accreditation Commission (EHNAC) awarded Eyefinity with another two years of accreditation. We work hard to achieve full accreditation with the Healthcare Network Accreditation Program (HNAP) because we want to ensure that your data will continue to be secure and safe with Eyefinity.

In today’s technology-driven world, data protection is more critical than ever. You and your patients deserve peace of mind knowing that we make protecting your personal health information a priority, while we deliver excellence in health data processing and transactions. We want you to trust us to exceed compliance industry-established standards and HIPAA regulations.

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.
