Compulink Healthcare Solutions has announced the acquisition of MyEyeStore, an e-commerce retailer in ophthalmic healthcare focusing primarily on contact lens re-ordering. The site also offers the ability for optometry and ophthalmology practices to also sell other recommended products directly to the patient.
Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
“This acquisition is the latest example of how Compulink continues to lead the industry in expanding our products and services to meet the needs of our clients,” Link Wilson, CEO and product architect for Compulink, said in a company news release. “We expect this acquisition and the subsequent integration into our all-in-one solution to increase the capture rate of contact lens re-orders by 25-50%, depending on the practice, and with minimal effort from our clients. The integration will also allow providers to recommend other retail products for improving patient’s health via this on-line store.”
Designed to maximize efficiencies and improve profitability, Compulink’s all-in-one solution includes practice management, EHR, optical, ASC, patient portal, and ophthalmic billing services. The company currently has over 20,000 providers using its Advantage software, along with 19 ophthalmic colleges and universities who have standardized on Compulink. The addition of this e-commerce solution will allow Compulink’s providers to expand their reach to patients. Patients will be able to order contact lenses, solutions, and any other products across all 18 specialties directly from their provider. All these efforts are in the pursuit of optimal efficiency, increased bottom line for the practice, and convenience for the patient.
“We are looking forward to becoming a part of the Compulink family. This acquisition allows us to continue to innovate and provide true 24/7 availability for our clients and their patients. Together we look forward to creating a platform unlike any other,” Stephannie Keller, new VP of eCommerce for Compulink and MES Division President, said in the news release.
