Developing a Medical Model Practice
The Medical Model Practice of Optometry has made tremendous strides in the medical eye care segment. No longer is our scope of practice confined to comprehensive eye exams – rather it has evolved – allowing us to treat medical conditions such as glaucoma, dry eyes and ARMD. In a competitive marketplace, adopting a medical model can help position the practice toward additional revenue streams, increase patient retention and improved patient care.
Are you interested in providing medical services, but not sure how to start? Have you implemented specific medical services, but not sure how to get the most out of them? Join us as we focus on implementing and building the medical optometry model. Among our discussion points:
- What medical services are we successfully providing, would like to begin providing or have challenges implementing? (Glaucoma, dry eye, ARMD, diabetes, etc.)
- Tools for success: What equipment do I need? Is my staff properly trained? How do I educate my patients?
- Getting paid for what you do: Billing and coding strategies, insurance credentialing.
- Building a referral system and marketing your medical services.
This dinner is open to doctors and 2-3 key staff members.
We hope to see you there!
