CES 2017 Insights: Connected Health Poised to Drive Practice Success

CES 2017 Insights: Connected Health Poised to Drive Practice Success

Insight: Digitally-connected patients and providers are leading to smarter care, business growth and improved outcomes. Optometry benefits too.

PLEASANTON, Calif. — When EyeCare Prime’s Shaun Schooley met with various technology exhibitors at the 2017 CES in Las Vegas, one trend was clear: patients and providers are being connected like never before. For general practitioners and some specialists, this is being reflected in patient-centered apps that collect automated and manual feedback on certain activities, feelings and behaviors, feeding them to a practice for analysis and incorporation into care plans.

What’s the impact for optometry? Imagine a day when a patient’s wearing patterns, replacement buying habits, complementary product use, compliance behaviors and even proximity to a practice can be integrated into custom care and sales plans. The upshot is a better patient experience, improved outcomes, and thriving practices – and its transition from idea to reality is closer than you may think.
