THE IDEAL CENTER
EYEmergencyMD seeks to partner with ACOs across the country to assist in the provision of retinal screening examinations to their diabetic population. Research shows that bringing these recommended services to the patient’s primary point of care significantly enhances patient compliance.
This enhanced compliance translates into the opportunity for earlier intervention and a decreased rate of visual impairment from these preventable causes. This all culminates into savings in healthcare costs, lost work hours, and disability assistance. After all, this is the very nature of accountable care organizations.
SOME CHARACTERISTICS WE LOOK FOR
- Large population of diabetic patients
- At least 75 square feet of space for necessary equipment
- Willingness to learn new billing practices and techniques to maximize reimbursement
- A strong commitment to patient centered care coordination
WHAT WE'RE DOING
EYEmergencyMD will provide training on equipment use, ongoing education about the importance of eye screening and routine eye examinations, and an unlimited capacity to read retinal screening examinations with rapid turnaround.
We also offer assistance in establishing referral networks with local ophthalmologists who can provide treatment when indicated. Partnering with us also gives your patient population access to on demand acute eye care from your clinic whenever they need it.
HOW YOU CAN HELP
Do you represent an ACO or know someone who does? Set up a time that EYEmergencyMD can present to the ACO's leadership to show how we can alter the course of vision impairment due to chronic disease. We are all in this because we understand that coordination of care leads to higher level care. Let’s create partnerships that place our patients on a trajectory for success.
