TELE-OPTOMETRY AND THE FUTURE OF REFRACTION - Vision Care Product News 04/02/2019

TELE-OPTOMETRY AND THE FUTURE OF REFRACTION - Vision Care Product News

TeleOptometry and telehealth is rapidly coming to the market in many forms. Frank Giammanco from VisionCareProductNews said it best:

“Pushing back against tele-optometry will probably be as effective as trying to keep the ocean from reaching the shore, especially as tele-medicine in general proliferates. Rather than rail against the new concept, the optical industry would be far better served if some brave souls in the community actually took a look at it, participated in it, and even find ways to improve it.”

Why Telehealth Could Contribute to Fragmentation of Care - Review of Optometric Business

Telehealth delivery of care will continue to expand. Great telehealth for primary care article in Review of Optometric Business. PCPs will increasingly be using telehealth for access to those in rural communities or who otherwise lack access to care.

Will Remote Refraction Tarnish Telemedicine? 03/23/2019

Will Remote Refraction Tarnish Telemedicine?

Optometry is and will continue to go through a revolution of telehealth advances. Mark De Leon published an insightful article in Review of Optometry (link below). Google purchased DeepMind, an AI firm that is looking at ways to analyze OCT and retinal imagery for hospital/providers/patients. Lots of involvement and change coming. Final quote of article: "Dr. Geffen agrees with this call to action. “Instead of spending our time complaining about this competitive environment, we need to take what is good and enhance it,” he says."

Ocular Telehealth Battle Heats Up With New Group, Lawsuit Appeal

Telehealth in Eye Care...Opternative, Smart Labs, 1800 among others are part of a group called "Americans For Healthcare Innovation". They are battling states for the right to provide online vision tests and issue prescriptions for eyeglasses and contacts. The article lists 12 states that prohibit telehealth eye exams (as of March 2, 2018): "Georgia is one of 12 states that currently prohibit the use of telehealth or telemedicine in eye exams. The others are Arkansas, Delaware, Indiana, Louisiana, Maryland, Michigan, New Jersey, Oklahoma, South Carolina, West Virginia and the District of Columbia."

Eye care providers will continue to see a public, business, and legal push for online eye care. The public will have a difficult time understanding what are vision screening tests, refractive tests, comprehensive eye exams, and medical care.

10 IDEAS for Applications of DigitalOptometrics Optometrists
1. Spouse serving 3 years in overseas military assignment and you can still see USA patients
2. Health disabilities which make it difficult to be in office, but now you can work from home (paralysis, hand/finger amputations/injuries, broken leg, colitis, fibromyalgia, and many others).
3. You live in Wisconsin and like to spend 4 months in Florida every winter and continue seeing patients in Wisconsin remotely.
4. You have a growing practice, hired an associate OD who is not always busy so they can see remote patients in those gaps (saves you not paying them in down times because they would be paid by DigitalOptometrics).
5. You open a satellite office, but do not want to hire an OD full time. Remote ODs can see your patients in the Satellite office every day of the week and you only pay for DigitalOptometric services when patients are seen.
6. You have an unused 2nd or 3rd exam lane. You see patients all day in 1-2 lanes and put in a DigitalOptometrics lane and remote ODs see more patients who still buy products from your office. Remote ODs also refer patients back to you for medical exams.
7. You have a specialty practice (glaucoma, vision therapy, dry eye clinic) operating near a DigitalOptometrics optical/clinic and are listed as a referral optometrist for your specialty in the DigitalOptometrics exam software so remote ODs send patients your way for medical evaluations and specialty care.
8. You are ambitious and want to open several clinics because you have a sound business model. With DigitalOptometrics you can open clinics around the country and have optometrists working for you remotely, right away. You pay $45 to DigitalOptometrics for the OD/Ophth tech only when a patient is seen ($60 for a contact lens exam).
9. You work a part time job and want extra part time or fill in work so you see patients remotely with DigitalOptometrics 1-2 days per week, or 1-2 days per month starting at $500 per day.
10. You moved to Virginia but all of your family/friend network is in California where you grew up. So you use DigitalOptometrics in your own practice while you spend 6 months back in California with family. You continue to see your own patients remotely from across the country and this allows you to spend significant time in both places.

Many, many more options for creative applications of DigitalOptometrics career options for optometry.
