Add S’more Automation to Your Practice with ERA

I’m an avid camper. I love the peacefulness of sitting out by the lake, reading a book, and spending time with my family. However, I think most frequent campers can agree that setting up your campsite is time consuming. It takes a while to clear the site, put up my tent, organize food, and set up the kitchen area. I often wish the campsite setup could be an automated process, leaving me more time to roast marshmallows over an open fire.

At Eyefinity, the concept of turning routine tasks into automated processes inspires many of our new features. And it’s what inspired our newest Eyefinity Practice Management feature: Electronic Remittance Advice (ERA).

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.

What’s the Word on the Street about Eyefinity® EHR? Click here to find out why Eyefinity® is your favorite.

Is Your Software Up-To-Date?

software updateMaintaining your car, home, appliances, and personal health is important to ensure optimal performance. Your software is no different! Are you protected from computer security risks? Is your technology allowing you to run a profitable business while delivering a great customer experience?

If you are using Eyefinity Practice Management or Eyefinity EHR, you don’t have to worry about software updates. Being “in the cloud” means Eyefinity maintains your software, ensuring that you are always using the most up-to-date version of your cloud-based software.

If you are using one of our on-premises solutions, like OfficeMate/ExamWRITER, then you need to download and install the newest software update, OfficeMate/ExamWRITER 12.0. This version will prepare you for ICD-10. It’s a great idea to download and install this version by July 2015, so that you are prepared for the government’s ICD-10 cut over well before the October 1, 2015, deadline.

Keeping up to date with software partner patches is also important. For Example, if you are using the ExamWRITER ePrescribing Interface, there is an update that needs to be installed by June 30, 2015. Partners like DrFirst, make changes to upgrade their functionality which can impact the eprescribing integration with ExamWRITER. Small patch updates only take a few minutes to download and run and are important in preventing interruptions in services you depend on.

We all agree that there are benefits to be gained from the 30K, 60K, and 100K mile car tune ups. Annual physical and optometric exams are something you recommend to your own patients. Don’t forget about the importance of maintaining your software, too!

Engage your Patients

scheduler

Your most important marketing tool just got better. See how eWebExtra™, your Eyefinity® website solution, integrates seamlessly with OfficeMate® v10+ to make you more available to your customers.

Patients want the ability to view appointment times and schedule appointments directly from your website. And the best part is that you can now accept these appointments with just a click. OfficeMate automatically captures and pre-populates all of your patient’s data without any additional work for you.

Simplify your workflow and eliminate:

• Manual entry

• Appointment scheduling conflicts

• Additional appointment scheduling negotiations

• Missed appointment opportunities

Once your patient schedules an appointment through your website, all you have to do is approve the time and the appointment information will automatically be added to OfficeMate. You still have the power to approve or deny all appointments scheduled online.

To take advantage of this new feature, you will need to upgrade your eWebExtra OfficeMate driver. Log on to http://www.eyefinity.com, click on the eWeb tab. Click on the “manage OfficeMate Integration” button. Once there, you will be able to update your “Schedule Sync” and “Patient Info Inbox” with the new installers.

We are committed to being your business partner and keeping your online presence cutting edge. We have many more great updates coming soon. Make sure to keep an eye out for future updates!

(MMI) have announced a new technology partnership that will integrate Eyefinity’s award-winning practice management portfolio with MMI’s Electronic Medical Assistant® (EMA), a cloud-based electronic health record (EHR) solution, resulting in a fully-integrated offering for the optometry industry. This partnership will provide optometry practitioners and physicians with the next generation of cloud-based technologies that will enable their practices to meet the demands of an evolving industry, with an adaptive learning engine and intuitive user interface built by medical industry experts and optometrists for maximum workflow efficiency.

Eyefinity EHR, launching in late 2013, brings together the collective strength of Eyefinity—the long-time industry leader for practice management and EHR solutions, as well as the number one software provider for federal stimulus payments for demonstrating meaningful use—and MMI, a proven leader in EHR technology for more than 1,000 physician practices across the country in specialty markets including dermatology, ophthalmology, orthopedics, plastic surgery, and cosmetic surgery. MMI was listed at No. 47 on Forbes’ annual ranking of America’s Most Promising Companies for this year.

“Eyefinity is bringing the newest EHR technology to eyecare professionals and physicians, built specifically with the optometry practice in mind,” said Steve Baker, president of Eyefinity. “Our exclusive partnership with MMI enables us to bring a medical-based EHR system to the optometry sector and integrate it with the robust Eyefinity Practice Management solution, with the intent of giving doctors the ability to deliver an unparalleled patient experience and increase practice revenue.”

Eyefinity EHR features include:

  • Native iPad technology. Provides fast, easy workflow in the palm of your hand.
  • Cloud-based documenting. Charts available at multiple practice locations eliminating costly hardware; built-in data backup included.
  • Adaptability to diagnosis style. Adaptive learning eliminates the need for complicated templates.
  • Patient portal. Patients can easily input medical history and demographic from either home or a tablet and information can be updated by the patient in future visits.
