Ophthalmology EHR

Aprima EHR for Ophthalmology

Aprima EMR


The biggest problem is as Ophthalmologists become hospital employees, their allegiance shifts from the patient to the corporate (or Government) bottom line. Ophthalmology providers are no longer professionals — Ophthalmology surgeons are employees that will do the bidding of their employer, the hospital/government. Ophthalmology surgeons are losing their ability to choose the method and specific products to use in their surgeries as these decisions are now made by the hospitals and the government-run insurance policies.

Why should you pick Aprima as your Ophthalmology EHR? With the changes in healthcare it is becoming harder for Ophthalmologists to stay independent. The Medicare reimbursement cuts to key surgery services, industry challenges like ICD-10, MACRA, MIPS, PQRS, Population Health and rising costs have pushed many ophthalmology providers right out of private practice. In fact, only 32% work in private practice today in 2016 versus 60% in 2007. It is sad that ophthalmologists help people enjoy day-to-day life, but suffer themselves with the stress of healthcare changes. Healthcare is moving away from fee for service to performance-based incentives, and that is why Ophthalmology need an Electronic Health Records system like Aprima that collects data and aggregates that data to help their specialty. Adding to the strain, administrative tasks and outdated technology, such as EHRs that require bridges to practice management or scheduling software, are consuming more and more time. Due to its complexity, Ophthalmology providers has some of the most demanding documentation and billing requirements, so it’s no wonder that 33% of Ophthalmology physicians spend over 15 hours a week on administrative tasks.
