How Practice Technology Has Evolved

  1. 1. How Practice Technology Has Evolved
  2. 2. Then: Paper Charts How many patient records folders do you have lying around in your practice? Not only are they clutter, but paper records may be a HIPAA violation if not stored properly. Patient Records
  3. 3. Now: Electronic Health Records (EHRs) Practice management and EHR systems reduce the risk of medical errors and bring about greater efficiencies by cutting down mundane administrative tasks. If you’re shopping for one, check out cloud-based systems that come with automatic updates, no heavy upfront costs, and device flexibility. Patient Records
  4. 4. Then: Telephone Many practices still spend plenty of time phoning patients to remind them of their upcoming appointments. But that’s not an efficient or reliable recall system! Patient Recall
  5. 5. Now: Automated Patient Recall Put down the phone! Patient recall solutions help you reduce time spent on the phone. Instead of calling your patients, you can send out automated reminders through text, email, or even direct mail. Patient recall solutions may come with certain practice management and EHR systems, or purchased separately. Either way, it’s a good investment! Patient Recall
  6. 6. Then: Fax Machines Are you faxing kidding me? Your labs would much prefer it if you used an online ordering solution to place your ophthalmic orders! Orders are more accurate and will be able to be processed faster. Optical Orders
  7. 7. Now: Online Ordering Submit Order Optical Orders Submitting orders online is the way to go! And if you already own a practice management system, online ordering solutions can be integrated into the system. Some systems even have it already embedded into the solution which means no more duplicate entries and better tracking all in one system!
  8. 8. Then: CD Installations If you’re using a practice management and EHR system, you’re slightly ahead of the curve! But how are you installing third party solutions like E-prescribing, and frame management software that doesn’t come with your system? If you rely on manual CD installations, you’d already know that they are a hassle and can get costly when it’s time for an upgrade! Third Party Solutions
  9. 9. Now: Embedded Solutions Embedded simply means everything is already installed, and part of the system. There’s nothing for you to do! You have all your third party solutions in the system and they all work seamlessly together. Look for a practice management and EHR solution with embedded tools! They make your job easier and they help save you money too! Third Party Solutions
