New EHR vendors commit to AOA MORE

Ahead of its launch at Optometry's Meeting® next week, optometry's clinical registry receives commitments from three additional electronic health record (EHR) systems.

AOA MORE (Measures and Outcomes Registry for Eyecare), by Prometheus Research, will integrate data from doctors' EHR systems to provide a systematic way of collecting patient data that helps enhance outcomes, procedures and standards of practice.

The registry will launch with three participating EHR systems at Optometry's Meeting. They are:

  • Eyecare Advantage by Compulink Business Systems, Inc.

  • MaximEyes by First Insight®

  • RevolutionEHR by Health Innovation Technologies

Three additional EHR systems recently committed to the registry and will be included shortly in upcoming program releases:

  • Eyefinity® EHR

  • Crystal Practice Management

  • Practice Director EHR by Williams Group™

Jeff Michaels, O.D., AOA Quality Improvement and Registries Committee chair, says, "We are pleased these vendors have decided to participate with AOA MORE and member sign-ups for the registry begin next week at Optometry's Meeting."

MORE about optometry's clinical registry
AOA MORE is a secure, private database that integrates data from doctors' EHR to help report necessary Medicare data to secure increased payments and avoid penalties. With many physician-level professions now adopting clinical registries and an increasing emphasis on registries in meaningful use and other quality-driven initiatives, AOA MORE will serve as optometry's collective database of clinical information. That data from AOA MORE will help with clinical improvement through self-benchmarking and support increased access and scope of care and population information to support AOA and state advocacy.

The registry is an AOA member benefit, but will be available to nonmembers for a fee. Additional vendors are anticipated.

Heading to Optometry's Meeting? Stop by AOA Central for AOA MORE registration and see a live demo of the registry by Prometheus developers. Attendees also can participate in an informative continuing education session devoted to the registry, titled, "Quality in Patient Care-Know it, Use it, Prove it, Oh my," presented by Dr. Michaels and Andy Archila, O.D., on Thursday, June 25.
