Deliver excellent vision care
with optometry-specific workflows

As the need for eye care grows, so does the scope of optometry. Optometry-specific content can now become part of your EHR. Strong partnerships are emerging between optometrists and ophthalmologists. A fully integrated eye care platform will strengthen these partnerships.

Optometry-specific workflows are available for routine vision care, vision therapy and binocular function, low vision examination, contact lens examination, and medical optometry. For practices that incorporate both specialties under one roof, new optometry workflows communicate with ophthalmology workflows. And both workflows integrate into practice management and NextGen® Optical Management.



Fully integrated eye care

To achieve more effective patient care, optometrists and ophthalmologists must build stronger relationships. An integrated eye care solution is needed to support these close ties. Along with integration between specialties via the EHR, eye care templates integrate with optical management and practice management.

Full low vision workflow

Low vision is strongly associated with older patients. Age-related eye diseases, such as macular degeneration, are the most common cause. With the population aging, providers need the right tools to document care. The low vision workflow fosters thorough, accurate documentation. Many competing EHRs do not offer a low vision workflow; NextGen® Enterprise does.

Full, configurable documentation of optometric visit

A broad range of optometry-specific templates allows you to seamlessly document your patient’s visit. You’ll find content for a full spectrum of cases—from a routine vision exam to more complex cases, such as visual skills, vision therapy, or ocular motility exam.

Full integration with all NextGen Healthcare solutions

Your optometry workflow integrates with NextGen® Optical Management, practice management, NextGen® Mobile, NextGen® Financial Analytics, NextGen® Patient Experience Platform—all the NextGen Healthcare solutions that help you run your practice. Gain the clinical and financial benefits of an integrated health IT solution for optometry.
