Spotlight on IO Practiceware in Ophthalmology Management

Ophthalmology Management, a monthly magazine distributed both online and in print, has featured IO Practiceware in its February Technology and Technique section. The article zooms in on New Jersey-based ophthalmologist Ron Sachs as he recounts his experience transitioning to IO's electronic medical records and practice management systems.

Dr. Sachs offers some general info on IO's improvement of his practice's workflow, noting specifically the benefits of IO Practiceware's billing system (included in the software), his practice's ease of transition, and, most importantly, the fact that IO Practiceware was tailor-made for ophthalmologists -- and only ophthalmologists.

The article also quotes Charles Reing, M.D., one of the doctors who helped design IO Practiceware. He believes confidently that IO's software offers 95-98% of what eye care physicians and their staff are looking for in an EMR system.

Which is to say: we're not perfect -- but we're pretty darn close.

  1. Hey, I used to think EMRs were the worst. But I am learning.
