Choose the Right Software for your Optometric Practice

Running an optometric practice involves many tasks beyond patient exams.

Add S’more Automation to Your Practice with ERA

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.

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.

We always try to keep a positive perspective, as it changes the outcome and outlook of the day for the better. Continue reading
