There can be minefields to navigate in making the transition to management, but who better understands the work ophthalmic practices do than a technician? Technicians have great perspective of how to provide the best ophthalmic care which needs to be the cornerstone of all practice activities. Learning all the other support operations and maximizing efficiency, accuracy and cost-effectiveness is a steep learning curve. Lessons learned will be shared by clinical personnel who have successfully made the transition into management.

There are many factors that contribute to the time each patient spends in the office. One of these is the master schedule. During this webinar we will discuss issues to consider when creating or changing templates, the advantages of consistent appointment types, and how one doctor’s schedule may affect the others. Also to be considered are staffing needs and scheduling diagnostic tests appropriately.
Millennials are now the largest generation in the workforce, edging out Baby Boomers in late 2015, and are poised to make up approximately 50% of the workforce by 2020 and roughly 75% of working-age people by 2025 (US Census Bureau). This means that over the next decade, millennials will be hired into your ophthalmology practices in numbers too large to ignore. The mere thought of this may trigger an immediate eye roll; however, dreading this transition, or neglecting to prepare for it, certainly won’t postpone it.
Over the past several years, people from all over the country have voiced their concerns, frustrations and opinions regarding Millennials. Ophthalmic administrators were no exception. With all the “Millennial stereotype” hype out there, ASOA has decided to address this topic head-on to help you prepare for this fundamental shift in the way ophthalmic practices need to employ this new generation of workers.
Join us as we learn more about Millennials from a Millennial. We will discuss practical solutions to the “Millennial Problem” you may be dealing with in your practice today, as well as discussing what “they” want and how you can provide it.
