How is Healthcare Reform Affecting Your Eyewear Business?
According to Erinn Morgan in Top 10 Business Trends of 2015 on Eyecare Business, today’s biggest challenge for eyecare professionals is navigating the changing demands of healthcare reform. The additional paperwork along with the need for staff to be familiar with various policies puts this type of specialty retail into a unique category.
High End Retail Management Software Meets The Challenge
Every customer for the eyecare retailer is more than a regular retail customer because the vision correction puts them into a level of patent status with the possible corresponding security for records. All the different types of vision coverage add a layer of complexity to the records and to the billing process. ChainDrive’s integrated retail management solution is able to adapt to the requirements of this complexity.
The ability to customize the various components of this software suite allow the system to go far beyond a basic point of sale/inventory management package to become exactly what the eyecare professional needs. The tools for handling multiple SKUs, work orders, and repairs are able to handle insurance claims as well. All the data is available when needed, and patient security is intact. Changing plans and coverage is simple to update.
Every specialty retailer has a unique inventory challenge, but the eyewear retailer adds the changing dynamics of healthcare reform to the already complicated inventory they carry. This business blends the trendiness of fashion with the practicality of vision correction. There are many factors involved in helping people see clearly, and ChainDrive can integrate all those factors into a streamlined operation that is able to meet the challenge of healthcare reform and provide better customer service, resulting in better business.
