After an in-depth 2-year evaluation comparing various electronic health records (EHRs) used by optometrists, U.S. Vision and its affiliate, Nationwide Vision, selected MaximEyes EHR by First Insight Corporation as its new EHR partner.
"First Insight is delighted that U.S. Vision and Nationwide Vision took the time to carefully assess and compare various optometry EHRs over 2 years before making its final selection," Nitin Rai, CEO/President and Founder of First Insight Corporation, said in a company news release.
As part of the selection process, U.S. Vision and Nationwide Vision evaluated and compared the following key components of the MaximEyes EHR system: customizability, intelligent rules engine for medical coding, built-in MIPS compliance tools, customer service track record, and the ability of the MaximEyes EHR engineering team to handle special requests in a timely manner.
More than 100 locations (120 providers) successfully went live with MaximEyes EHR in the fourth quarter of 2017. The remaining 500+ locations will go live with MaximEyes EHR over the next 2 to 3 years.
"First Insight converted over three million exam records and scanned documents from ExamWRITER to make the transition easier for the first 100 locations," said Mr. Rai. "We look forward to a long and rewarding relationship with U.S. Vision and Nationwide Vision, as we incorporate billing and insurance requirements into our next generation version of MaximEyes optical and dispensary management."
