Credit card processing
There are many options available to doctors of optometry when it comes to credit card payment processing terminals in their practices, and it's also one of the quickest ways to lower expenses. Selecting a secure and efficient payment processing terminal is an easy way to help improve your patients' experiences and to ensure your practice receives each payment quickly and without complications.
Care coordination services
Health plans are turning toward care coordination services to help close the gaps with their non-compliant patients. Doctors of optometry are integral parts of this equation. Care coordination services provide all the heavy lifting by contacting non-compliant patients on behalf of the health plan and providing valuable information, education and concern directly to you as a physician.
