New scheme for ophthalmology led outpatient services
5th April 2018
Eyeplan Ltd, the leading provider of monthly payment eye care schemes in the UK, has announced the launch of Eyeplan Medical. Designed to monitor and diagnose chronic eye conditions, the new scheme gives patients the option to be treated by their local Optometrist without the need to visit hospital and endure long waiting lists. Eyeplan Medical was developed in partnership with ophthalmology provider Evolutio.
Eyeplan Medical has been created to care for those patients with non-surgical and non-sight threatening conditions in a clinically managed governance framework. The service is delivered through telemedicine and a panel of ophthalmologists via a software platform known as e-connect, enabling Optometrists to join the scheme without Independent Prescribing or advance Glaucoma certification. For the practice, it is yet another service that can be offered to patients to build loyalty, differentiate the practice from its high street competition and generate financial returns through contracted income.
“Eyeplan is always looking for new ways in which independent optical practices can offer improved service and better value in return for greater rewards for their practices,” said Chris Clemence, Commercial Director at Eyeplan Ltd. “Eyeplan Medical will enable patients to take back control of their eye care, closer to home with an eye care professional they know and trust. For practices, the new scheme will offer greater differentiation in the level of care they can offer and create a deeper and even more loyal relationship with their patients.”
If you would like to learn more about Eyeplan Medical, Eyeplan will be exhibiting at Optrafair on Stand A34.
