Nevada Cloud Business Recovery Plan

The COVID-19 global pandemic has made its presence felt among all businesses, big and small, but the full impact on earnings, cash flow and employment will last far longer than a lockdown.  Optometry practice owners are faced with the challenge of reducing overheads in line with the expected reduced patient re-visits. The irrecoverable loss of billable consultation time during  lockdown will require business owners to find new ways to move forward. A new approach to address health and safety concerns, combined with increased patient motivation to return sooner,  is critical in the recovery phase.

Be proactive.

Optometrists that are proactive regarding patient communication will lead to the right message resulting in more patients returning to the practice sooner. There are various communication channels well suited to the healthcare industry namely emails, SMS, Social Media, Blogs and Websites. Email and SMS communication during this critical time are some of the most cost-effective, easiest and quickest methods to implement.

Bulk emails and generic SMS messages to recall patients may be deemed impersonal during this time, thus being ineffective to create the business upswing required. Personalized communication and staying connected to patients in these uncertain times will establish empathy and deepen the existing patient relationship. Communication to ensure that patients are aware of, that as a healthcare practitioner, the highest clinical and hygiene standards are always in place, should be ongoing. As the fear of COVID-19 infection will continue to be a reality to many patients, especially the elderly, business owners will need to be proactive in this regard to ensure the safety of all staff and patients entering the practice.

This motivates patients to overcome the fear of returning to a practice for an eye examination.

Adapt to change.

Facing the business challenges of adapting to a “new normal” can be a daunting time for healthcare practitioners, whose primary focus is patient care. Implementing all the changes required, in a short space of time, is overwhelming. However, identifying industry leaders and business support partners who specialize in technology and innovation, will save critical time to implement these changes (and reduce effort).
