VitalHealth introduces an EHR for optometrists

July 24th, 2013 by

The Mayo Clinic and Noaber Foundation of the Netherlands have collaborated to develop a cloud based, tablet-enabled, user friendly electronic health record (EHR) for small physician practices. The company they created, VitalHealth Software is now introducing an optometry EHR, offered exclusively by their partner VisionWeb as “Uprise.”

Optometrists are eligible for Meaningful Use incentives, but their workflows and practice patterns do not lend themselves to the use of the typical systems that are on the market.

In this podcast interview, VitalHealth executive Blair Butterfield discusses the needs of optometrists, explains VitalHealth’s relationship with eye care company Essilor and distribution partner VisionWeb, and describes the interoperability needs and how they can be addressed.
