Why you need Optometry EHR?
Watching the optometry market embrace electronic health records has been quite fascinating. The industry is very tech savvy and seems to embrace enhancements to technology with open arms. They have learned to run a successful practice relying more on technology than some other specialties I have seen. They have discovered that an Optometry EHR system can simplify the documentation of the patient record and allow more patient interaction. They have streamlined processes and adapted accordingly. Although they generally have smaller staffs than other specialties they have the ability to keep wait times to a minimum by utilizing their software to its fullest. That being said recently we have seen a shift with EHR companies. We are seeing more and more vendors offering the software for a flat low fee. Unfortunately, many times you get what you paid for, a cheap product that does not fit your practice needs.
Where does your optometry practice fit into all of this? Have you embraced all that technology has to offer? Did you select an Optometry EHR system based on needs, price or both? Does your software provide all of the tools needed to run your practice smoothly enhancing the patient’s overall office experience? If your software is causing slowness and frustrations in your practice it might be time to move on to a software vendor who has the experience and enhanced technology to keep your practice running smoothly.
