Eminance complies with the regulations for online contact lens ordering

In Mr. Harry Rosen's initial address at the recent Eyecare Extravaganza held in Killarney Country Club, he detailed the requirements to enable a practice to comply with these regulations. In short they are: Patient must have a script that is no more than 12 months old; Dispensing must be done by the optometrist in their practice. Mr Rosen did add a further point regarding delivery of contact lenses to the patient. In this instance if the patient is well known to the optometrist; if you are well aware of the patient's eye health, have given them an eye examination within 12 months and they are a bona-fide patient of your practice then you may have the box(es) of contact lenses delivered to their home or work address. Note, this is not applicable to non-patients, they still are required to have the lenses dispensed in the practice. Our team of developers have been hard at work creating an online contact lens ordering platform that complies with the Government Gazette regulations and we have been successful in our endeavour. Mr Rosen recently witnessed a demonstration of our system by our Development Director and proclaimed it to be correctly applied. We are happy to be able to offer this platform to our customers at no extra charge. For any assistance with this platform kindly chat to one of our software support team members on either 021 7901124 or 087 750 8157 or email support@healthfocus.co.za.

Lost your Data?

One of the worst types of calls Software Support receives is from practices who have had a hard drive crash or a server stolen and they want to know how to recover their data. The only way to do this is to have a recent, working, backup on hand. It doesn't help if your backup is a year old. It doesn't help if the external drive you have backed up to doesn't work. It doesn't help if you find out too late that your backup is corrupt. With Eminance you have the solution at your fingertips. Either as a month end procedure, or on an ad-hoc basis you are able to perform a backup from within Eminance and have it uploaded to our cloud. We then validate the backup to ensure that it is not corrupt and can be used in your practice when needed. We keep your backup for six months as a precaution, however, we urge you to make more regular backups as you don't want to be recapturing months of data. You will be surprised how often we receive this type of call. People seem to have an 'it won't happen to me' approach to this subject. Do not become a victim of this totally avoidable catastrophe. Run the Cloud Backup today. Should you require assistance call Software Support on 087 750 8157 or 021 790 1124 or email support@healthfocus.co.za
