CooperVision opens submissions for third year of Best Practices
Las Vegas—CooperVision puts out its third annual call for submissions for its Best Practices initiative. The company looks to recognize the innovative and unexpected ways that eyecare practitioners provide the best possible care to their patients, grow their practices, and advance the profession. All U.S. optometry practices currently fitting contact lenses are eligible to apply.
The company has named 10 eyecare practices as Best Practices per year for the past two years.
“After two years of partnership with our Best Practices honorees, we have been blown away by our honorees’ various approaches toward patient care, practice management, community engagement, industry leadership, and more,” says Michele Andrews, OD, CooperVision senior director of professional and academic Affairs, North America. “From private practice to corporate optometry, these honorees are contributing to the advancement of the profession in big ways and small.”
According to CooperVision, Best Practices honorees are recognized throughout the profession by serving on professional panels, showcasing their expertise within the eyecare trade media, and representing the program at industry trade shows. They are also invited to attend educational meetings at CooperVision’s headquarters in Pleasanton, CA.
Best Practices candidates are encouraged to submit practice profiles and stories in the following areas:
• Innovation will be evaluated on contributions to the betterment of eye health and education, leveraging technology in interesting ways to grow the practice, and advancing the eye care profession among the public.
• Industry Leadership will be rated on how a practice advances the profession and leads the industry regionally, nationally, and even globally.
• Patient Experience will be judged on how a practice delivers excellent eyecare experiences and education to its patients as well as unique aspects of patient care.
Applications will be accepted through October 31, 2017, and will be reviewed by a panel of judges including past Best Practices honorees, industry experts, and CooperVision leaders, according to the company.
The 2018 Best Practices will be announced in early 2018.
