 WESTLAKE VILLAGE, CA and COLUMBIA, MD—September 2013 – Compulink Business Systems, Inc. has integrated VueCare Media’s VueSimulator™ patient education tool with Compulink’s leadership ophthalmic Electronic Health Records (EHR) and Practice Management software.  With its latest release, Advantage version 10.6, users of Compulink’s optometry and ophthalmology EHR software are able to deliver dynamic and interactive patient education utilizing the VueSimulator.  Videos and simulations will be automatically recorded in the patient’s exam record, and videos can be easily sent to the Compulink HIPAA compliant, secure patient portal.

 "The introduction of VueCare’s dynamic educational software integrated with Compulink’s smart EHR platform advances practice efficiency and streamlines office operations, automatically documenting and recording patient-specific care and allowing practices to see more patients per day. We're pleased to be working in partnership with an industry leader such as Compulink," said Saman Ghahremani, MD, VueCare Media Co-founder and CEO.

An easy-to-use, interactive software solution, the VueSimulator visually represents eye conditions and treatments with sophisticated 3D animations, graphics, videos and multiple viewing angles of the eye anatomy. By using the VueSimulator, physicians are able to explicitly demonstrate to patients and their families’ specific eye conditions, bringing about a greater understanding of the patient’s eye care health, eliminating the fear of procedures and increasing conversions.

“Our doctors love VueSimulator because it is quick and easy to use. They are able to use the drawing tools to demonstrate areas of interest in the diagnosis,” said Debbie Weiss administrator for Dallas Eye Care Associates, LP in Dallas, TX.  They also like that Advantage automatically documents education into the medical record. “With VueSimulator and Compulink, we are able to get education meaningful use credit without doing a lot of extra work.”

Used by more than 4,000 ophthalmic practices and 16 of the 21 U.S. Colleges of Optometry, Compulink’s complete, customizable EHR and Practice Management solutions are designed to increase staff productivity, improve practice profitability and enhance the delivery of patient care.

“We are very excited to be partnering with VueCare to provide our clients with a fully integrated solution for efficient and effective patient education,” said Link Wilson, Compulink President and CEO.  “That our clients can have easy, one-touch access to such innovative tool that helps them save time and increase revenues while delivering better care and easily achieving compliance, is what we’re all about.”
