Optometric System Modules
Patient InformationWith Genie, entering patient information can be as easy as swiping a healthcare card through a reader and confirming the data with the patient. Once entered, the information is immediately available throughout your entire office, accessible by you and your staff at the touch of a key.
When you display a patient's file, you instantly know if they owe money, have an appointment booked, need a recall and much more. This information is invaluable in providing prompt service to your patients, whether they are visiting or phoning your office. You can be sure of always accessing the most current information because the system automatically tracks and compiles the latest information for you. You can also make notes in any patient's file for quick reference and follow up at any time in the future.
SchedulingDo you use a manual book for scheduling appointments? Do you wait for a book to become available to serve a patient? Are you using multiple books for each doctor, assistant or optician? Does booking an appointment on your computer take more time than it does manually? Would you like to see more than one day per page? If you could reduce the amount of time spent booking and confirming appointments, would you? If you answered "Yes" to one or more of these questions, it's time to consider the benefits of the Genie Scheduler.
The Genie Scheduler automates the entire booking process, allowing you to schedule, move and cancel appointments very quickly. The system automatically marks cancelled and missed appointments for rebooking, so you never lose an appointment and are assured of continuity in your patient care.
The Genie Scheduler is much more than an automated appointment book. It is a comprehensive Resource Management Scheduler, fully integrated throughout the system. This makes it possible to build treatment plans, recall patients and book appointments without repetitive steps. Scheduling for multiple doctors, providers and exam rooms is easily handled by the system. The booking screen displays up to 14 full days for one doctor, provider or exam room, and you can schedule a doctor in the office or at the hospital on the same screen.
Throughout the day, the Genie Scheduler will save you time and money with its speed and flexibility.
Recall ManagementHow are you following up with your patients? Do you need to track ongoing treatments? Are you recalling patients for optometric checkups? Do you wish to do this often, or even once? Today, such service more important than ever in providing quality patient care.
Genie Recall Management provides you with the tools required to recall patients, and follow up on contact-lens renewals.
DispensingYour dispensary can make the most money for your practice. It can also be the least efficient area. For example, when a patient wants to reorder a contact-lens or eyeglass prescription, do you ask the patient to wait while you retrieve their dispensing information? If you could display this information and order the prescription within a minute, would your patients be impressed? You can provide such quick and efficient service by dispensing with Genie.
Genie Dispensing Modules give you direct access to pricing, color, size and lens availability information with the touch of a key. You spend more time with your patients and less time looking up information. Your patients no longer have to wait. Genie Dispensing Modules also enable you to quickly track orders and determine job status--other time-consuming tasks normally requiring patients to wait while you follow-up on their orders.
Genie Dispensing Modules feature eyeglass and contact-lens ordering and reordering, frame catalogs and inventory control, job tracking and follow-up, lab-order printing, and connection to internal or external labs.
Billing/AccountingEach province has different legislation regarding which patients are entitled to paid visits and the various ways they accept claims. Genie meets this challenge by effectively integrating provincial healthcare, direct-to-patient and third-party billings. With Genie, you can generate billings for multiple-providers, issue account statements in batch form or individually, receive and automatically reconcile claims, and separate accounts by healthcare, patient and third-party payments and accounts receivable. From exams to nose pads, Genie tracks your billings and saves you hours of work at day's-end, month-end and year-end, leaving you more time for your patients.
ReportingEvery optometric office operates somewhat differently and, therefore, has its own reporting requirements. Production, payment, inventory, recall, accounts receivable, ordering and marketing information must be assimilated and reported on in a variety of ways.
Genie's extensive reporting capabilities are integrated into each module to deliver flexible, informative reports meeting the requirements of every optometric office. Reports can be produced with user-specified date ranges, for the whole clinic, each doctor or a provider. Most reports can be generated in either detail or summary format. Every report generated can be viewed onscreen and/or printed, thereby reducing paper waste and freeing the printer for when you need it most.
Genie's flexible, effective reporting features are unmatched by any other practice management system on the market, and guarantee you always have the information you want at your fingertips.
Clinical ChartingGenie has been assisting optometric practices in becoming chartless for almost a decade. Lack of file storage space, misplaced or lost files, and even difficulty reading written records have prompted some offices to make the transition. Others have sought a more efficient way to print referral reports, a safer way to enter and store exam information, a quicker way to access medication and disease catalogs, and a more effective way to perform exams and spend more time with patients. Genie makes all of this possible and gives you the option of using the customized, on-screen exam form, although our users say, "Why wouldn't you?"
Doctors using the Genie Examination Module will tell you that you don't have to be a typist to easily and quickly use the custom exam form. In fact, they will tell you they can complete an exam form faster on the computer then they ever could on paper. And, can you imagine it being any simpler to display a patient's history than by pressing one key?
The Genie exam screen is customized to facilitate your examination process and meet your specific information requirements. Search and choice boxes, activated with a keystroke, enable you to quickly enter data and test results. The test description, entered at the start of the exam, can be repeated as often as needed during the examination. Genie offers a selection of online catalogs and can connect to automated instruments for automatically recording of test results on the exam screen.
The Genie Examination Module is fast, informative and efficient. Isn't this the way you want your optometric office to run?
