AEG Vision, an owner and operator of leading Optometry Practices, announced today that it is among the 2020 CIO 100 Award recipients for innovation in technology.
The prestigious CIO 100 Award celebrates 100 organizations and the teams within them that are using IT in innovative ways to deliver business value, whether by creating competitive advantage, optimizing business processes, enabling growth or improving relationships with customers. It is an acknowledged mark of enterprise excellence. This year's honorees exemplify what it means to deliver business value through the innovative use of technology. AEG Vision and this elite group is creating a competitive advantage in their organizations, improving business processes, enabling growth and improving relationships with customers.
In 2020, AEG Vision’s technology enhancements covered three key areas:
- Patient Engagement: AEG Vision completed development of a best-in-class digital platform to manage the patient life cycle. This platform allows practices to engage with patients through annual exam recall, personalized marketing, a real-time view of available appointment times, product pick-up reminders, and the ability to maximize patient benefits. In 2020, this resulted in improved existing patient retention and NPS scores.
- Operational Efficiency: AEG Vision upgraded its technology platforms including business intelligence, process automation, call center, merchandising, lab support, and EHR systems. 80% of ongoing operational systems are now fully automated. This has further improved the speed/quality of new practice integration and existing practice operational efficiency.
- Employee Empowerment: AEG Vision has created an industry-leading dashboard that provides performance metrics and full transparency to the field. At all times, our doctors and staff have access to key performance indicators and historical reports to see trends over time. In 2020, AEG Vision further enhanced customization options and introduced two-way patient texting within the dashboard.
“AEG Vision is honored to be recognized as a leader in technology innovation,” said Eric Anderson, CEO of AEG Vision. “As AEG has exponentially grown, these technology platforms have transformed eyecare practices across the country – allowing them to optimize their business while offering an exceptional patient experience.”
“Every technology enhancement is guided by our focus on patient engagement, operational efficiency and employee empowerment,” said Satish Dave, Chief Information Officer of AEG Vision. “As AEG Vision grows, we look forward to sharing these innovations with more communities across the country.”
