EMR Fosters Eye Clinic Growth
During our search for an electronic medical record (EMR) system, we stumbled across an anomaly—a solution that defied the lengthy timeline typically associated with adopting an EMR. Historically, the timeline required to install and use an EMR can delay the rewards a practice can realize from a fully digitized environment. Those rewards include growth, return on investment, increased productivity, and efficiency. The story of our success shows how the solution we selected for the Wheaton Eye Clinic shortened that timeline. In less than a year, the clinic achieved a fully digital environment, gained efficiencies, enhanced productivity, improved patient care, grew the practice, and increased revenue. Wheaton Eye Clinic is the largest private ophthalmology practice in Illinois. It has four satellite offices, 24 board-certified ophthalmologists, and seven licensed doctors of optometry. Founded more than 60 years ago, the clinic is a major provider of eye care services and a resource for referring physicians whose patients have eye care needs. We have about 115,000 clinic visits per year, and maintain some 180,000 active charts and another 180,000 inactive patient charts. In addition to our highly trained and experienced medical staff, Wheaton Eye also provides full vision correction services, contact lens specialists, and a designer eyewear studio.
