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.

Vision Expo West: How to Get Your Money’s Worth in Vegas

 

Vision Expo West isn’t cheap ($40 buffets…crazy!). However, VEW can be an important investment for your practice. Here are five ways to ensure you make the most out of this year’s show:

  1. Register for free! Let Eyefinity pick up the tab.
  2. Take advantage of incredible education opportunities. There are over 300 hours of education for every role and experience level. Eyefinity is sponsoring a presentation on Improving Quality Care Through Medical Optometry by Dr. Dustin Krassin of Wicker Park Eye Center in Chicago.
  3. Get a sweet deal. Come by the Eyefinity booth 13065 to find out how you can get special pricing on Eyefinity cloud solutions. Think of it as optometry’s Black Friday!
  4. Connect with your peers. The Las Vegas strip will be hopping with networking events during VEW. Check out a list of just some of the happy hours, receptions, and breakfasts you might want to attend.
  5. Enjoy free food! Every day at 2 p.m. we’re offering free food and drinks. Swing by on Thursday at 2 p.m. for special cupcakes in celebration of Eyefinity EHR’s 5th Birthday!

Don’t be a stranger! We’d love to see you at booth 13065 to show you how Eyefinity EHR can help your practice.

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.

Part of my job with Eyefinity is talking with the eye care community about our shared experience using Eyefinity software. Something I admire about Eyefinity is the way they support eye care professionals throughout their entire professional journey. From the day you go live with Eyefinity® EHR to the day you sell your practice, Eyefinity is listening, innovating, and improving.

This is the inspiration for my February #DoctorKnowsBest. Eyefinity improves its software constantly by learning from dedicated doctors like April Omoto, OD, CPEHR, CPHIT how they use the software. Whether you recently went live or are a seasoned EHR pro, there’s always something new to learn. In this webinar, Dr. Omoto will share some EHR secrets that make her a super-user.
