    3 things you need to know from AOA 2015

    AOA begins AOA MORE registry enrollment

    Seattle—The American Optometric Association (AOA) officially began enrolling optometrists in its AOA Measures and Outcomes Registry for Eyecare (MORE) this week during Optometry’s Meeting 2015 in Seattle.

    The registry is a private, secure database that systematically integrates patient data from multiple electronic health record (EHR) systems and facilitates secondary uses of that data. Currently, MORE is available to doctors using RevolutionEHR, Compulink, and MaximEyes EHR systems, but has plans to expand to Williams Group Practice Director, Eyefinity, and Crystal Practice Management systems within the year.

    AOA MORE allows ODs to participate in value-based payment systems that Medicare—which requires participation in a registry in order to receive maximum reimbursements—and other insurers utilize. ODs will also be able to privately access statistics from their own patient base through the system’s dashboard. AOA MORE will allow ODs to compare their patient demographics to the national averages, and identify the most common diagnosis codes and medicines prescribed compared to the national averages.  

    The registry is free to AOA members. Non-members must pay a $1,800 per year fee. For more information or to sign up, visit aoa.org/MORE.
