With optical practices in such high demand, it is no surprise that managing an office comes with complications. Some of the issues that optical practices face on a daily basis include:
- Appointment Reminder Management
- Communication with Patients
- Patient Recare and Retention
- Managing an Online Reputation
- Managing No-Shows
Optometrists, also known as Opticians have practices that range in size and staff. Optometrists are eye doctors that examine a patient’s eyes for vision and health issues. These medical professionals with OD degrees are licensed to prescribe medications that treat specific eye problems and diseases.
Optical practices are popular practices for patients to visit. After all, it is reported that 61 percent of the population wears glasses, contact lenses, or other visual aids.
DoctorConnect’s Appointment Reminders For Optometrists
At DoctorConnect, we know how important optical health is for managers of any optical practice. We know that you would rather be helping patients than having to manually keep track of endless record keeping. Even with a current electronic record keeping system, you can find yourself having to spend way too much time on business aspects that could be automated through our software.
The appointment scheduling app with DoctorConnect makes your appointment calendar something that is instant and takes away the shadow that looms over keeping track of scheduling. With our appointment calendar, you can automatically import the schedules from your office that you are already using.
Using our dashboard for appointment scheduling, you can:
- Contact patients who have not yet confirmed their visit
- Manually confirm your appointments
- Respond to messages from patients
- Send no-show messages to missed appointments
With so many optical practices popping up around Texas, patient recare and retention has never been more important. Utilizing our software, you are opening the doors that allow you to deliver re-care messages to your patients and have them return to your offices for follow-up care. Based on the information that you put into your follow-up appointment calendars and past calendar schedules, you can:
- Reach out to patients you haven’t seen in a year
- Send messages to frequent patients
- Send messages to patients that meet a specific status
