Strategies for Delivering Exceptional Optometry Patient Experiences

Successful optometry practices are built on a foundation of providing exceptional patient experiences and comprehensive, personalized care—for everything from scheduling appointments to communicating with patients. While these ideals are admirable, achieving them requires strategic approaches and tools to identify and meet your patients’ needs effectively.

Visual-Eyes Software can provide the support you need for prioritizing patient-centered care. The advantanges of Visual-Eyes Software stem from a suite of customizable strategies and solutions designed to enhance patient experiences by reducing the time optometrists and their staff spend on daily administrative tasks and allowing more direct patient interaction. 

Some of the modern strategies for delivery exceptional patient experiences, supported by Visual-Eyes Software, include:

  • Actively tracking and managing patient experiences
  • Using automated systems for patient communication and surveys
  • Using customizable digital forms
  • Implementing a digital file system for patient data

Tracking and Managing Patient Experiences

How do you monitor patients as they move through your practice? Monitoring patient movements and employing data to evaluate patient experiences can provide valuable insights into areas of your practice that excel and those needing improvement. 

The routing module from Visual-Eyes Software enables seamless patient tracking and streamlines clinic interactions during their visit., This functionality minimizes wait times and provides a centralized repository to store and access key details about patients. 

The ToDo module further ensures your staff stays organized, streamlining tasks required for a positive patient experience and timely completion.

By tracking patient movements throughout their visit, the routing module supplies essential data for identifying potential pain points in the patient journey and enhancing overall patient experiences.

Using Automated Systems for Patient Communication

How do manage your patients’ communication preferences? Visual-Eyes Software tracks each patient’s preferred communication method, facilitating connections through their preferred channel. 

With a growing number of patients favouring text or email communication, automation enhances patient interactions by automatically sending messages.  This not only enhances patient satisfaction, it liberates staff from time-consuming tasks like sending appointment reminders and follow-up messages, allowing them to allocate more time to in-office patient care.

Visual Connect uses automated messaging to seamlessly send surveys directly to patients. These surveys enable you to proactively assess your patient experience at various touch points throughout the patient journey. This invaluable feedback provides critical insights to pinpoint areas for improvement and further enhance the quality of patient care. 

Using Customizable Digital Forms

The strategies you use for collecting patient information significantly impacts their overall patient experience. Fortunately, you can use custom forms to streamline and enhance these experiences while saving staff time. 

Visual Forms establish a seamless process for gathering information, from a patient’s first check-in to processing their insurance claims for future appointments. These forms connect directly with Visual-Eyes Software, ensuring automatic updates to patient charts and reducing double entry for staff and patients alike.

Additionally, Visual Forms facilitates the collection of information, including patient insurance information, consent for Telus Health eClaims and MSP Opt-Out forms.  By taking advantage of Visual Forms to support your marketing strategies and other custom initiatives, you can garner further insights on your patients before their visit. 

Using a Digital File System for Patient Data

In today’s modern optometry practice, a digital filing system serves as the backbone of a positive patient experience. Visual-Eyes Software’s file-linking module simplifies access to critical patient information, including insurance information, referral letters, and electronic imaging results. 

Visual-Eyes Software connects your digital filing system to various practice components, thanks to modules designed specifically for  optometrists, opticians, their staff, and their patients, including:

  • Contact lens ordering systems
  • Frame and lens ordering systems
  • Scheduling and online booking systems
