Put The HealthCare Puzzle Together -See The Picture!

  • Optometric visits capture at risk patients between ages 15 –> 45 that PCPS do not see!  We see them for blurred vision. We are the Entry point to health care that is critical before it gets costly.
  • Optometric geographical distribution and office hours, makes us the ideal easy place for patients to come to, not a big central medical office that MD’s are forming for efficiency.
  • Optometric contact with leadership provides access to contacting ACO leadership for entry points.
  • Optometric technology – makes it easy to diagnose systemic disease via retina photography, cheaply, quickly and efficiently.
  • Primary Care Optometry — providing referrals to OMDs is the most efficient use of OMD surgical skills
  • Forming a Cooperative team and Branding ourselves in NY State would likely make us a sought out entry point  for MD / OD healthcare partnerships. Requiring a paradigm shift:
    • Retina Imaging Being Routine
    • Standardized reporting to pcps
    • Referring at risk patients to PCPS for consultation.
    • Taking the initiative by dispensing educational materials
    • Educating patients in our offices (as Dr Hom Suggested)
    • Connecting patients with online dietary advice such as health letters written by leading physicians who promote diet and lifestyle changes
