  • Patient Marketing and Education
  • Increasing Practice Efficiency with New Technology
  • Cost Effective Tools to Help Streamline Office Operations
Lorie Lippiatt, O.D., of the Salem Eyecare Center in Salem, Ohio, and F. Mason Smith, O.D., of Family Vision Care in Mt. Pleasant, South Carolina, will discuss the resources available to ECPs that will help make practices more accommodating and appealing to tech savvy patients. The doctors will present Internet marketing tools and explain how to efficiently use technology tools in your office.
In today's information-age, patients are looking for more from their ECPs: Whether it is the ability to record appointments online, communicate through various online channels, or access information faster, the tech-savvy patient base continues to grow. As technology continues to rapidly change, ECPs must look for ways to adapt and embrace technology to enhance the eyecare experience for patients.
