Have you been considering moving to a cloud-based Electronic Health Record but it just feels too scary, too hard on your staff, too much change for this moment in time? As optometrists we can all agree changing anything we are used to  — or something that works because it has become an auto-pilot endeavor – is a difficult decision to make.  When I joined Eyefinity as VP of Professional Relations I had day-to-day interaction with the team who was developing and promoting the product, answering customer calls, and working with new clients as they learned our software.  I realized early on that as doctors, we learn best from each other; we want the truth and nothing but the truth; we’re ok with a little pain, but we want to know what to expect and then we’ll jump in feet first.

It doesn’t take an OD with 30 years of experience to know what might help you process the idea of embracing change. Of course, who better to share their journey than one of our most loyal Office Mate/ExamWRITER users who has decided to take a leap of faith. Enter April Jasper, OD, owner of Advanced Eyecare Specialists in West Palm Beach, Florida, a Vision Source practice. Dr. Jasper has been using OM/EW for years. Only recently has she decided to move to Eyefinity EHR.  She intends to write a weekly blog chronicling her experience.  We’d love to hear your comments as you walk the path with her.

With the start of a new year I am looking forward to deploying a new EHR. As a long-time OfficeMate user, I adopted, ExamWRITER in 2006. I worked diligently, as many of you have, to integrate my equipment and reduce as much paper in my practice as possible. When I was faced with Meaningful Use, ExamWRITER took me through that challenge easily. Now we are faced with MIPS.

As we look at the future of healthcare one thing I know we all can agree on is that change  will take place rapidly. It is imperative that we find ways to improve our processes in the office, speed up our data entry while eliminating errors and stay HIPAA compliant. And of course, keep costs to a minimum.

When I began looking for a solution to all these challenges in an EHR system, I looked at several options. I consistently came back to the company that I have built a solid relationship with over time and that is Eyefinity. I am impressed so far with EHR. Not just the software solution but also the process of getting started and onboarding with a team who sees my success as a requirement for their success.

As I move through this process of implementation I look forward to sharing with all of you my experiences and helping you to see what the process will look like as you start down this path to the future. Let’s work together to make it easy. After all we are all in this together!

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.
