In ophthalmology, it is important to always put patients first, but what can your practice offer that those patients are not already receiving? This is where HealthxMD comes in. We are enhancing the care your patients already receive with quality-of-life diagnostic testing service.
How Does HealthxMD Work?
HealthxMD is a third-party diagnostic service provider developed by ophthalmology professionals for eye care professionals. When you choose HealthxMD, you are provided a comprehensive diagnostic platform in your practice with no upfront costs.
Our primary diagnostic service is Transcranial Doppler testing. TCD is a form of diagnostic testing that helps identify patients who may be at risk of stroke, a cardiovascular event and early low-tension glaucoma that other diagnostic tests may not detect.
If it sounds like TCD testing is one more thing your practice will need to handle, it is not. Offering this to your patients is hands-off, allowing your practice and your providers to keep operating as usual. This means you are able to continue caring for your patients and promote both quality-of-vision as well as quality-of-life services which will exceed your patients’ expectations.
Why Choose HealthxMD
There are many advantages of choosing HealthxMD and offering your patients the access to transcranial doppler testing. The largest reason being TCD testing contributes to overall quality-of-life resources for patients being seen every day.
Choosing HealthxMD is not about getting more patients. It is about expanding the diagnostic services for patients who on average are in your practice two to three times per year Approximately 10% -15% of the patients you see every day will have medical histories consistent with risk of potential life changing events.
