The AMD Excellence Program
Each AdaptDx Pro® purchase is supported by our AMD Excellence Program®, which is a core component of every device subscription. Our Practice Management Consultants (PMCs) will help guide you through the process, by getting to know your practice so they can customize their training and advice to suit your needs.
Here’s What You Can Expect
Our experienced PMC team partners with you from the moment you invest in AdaptDx® technology.
As the core training session for all AdaptDx Pro customers, this virtual, hands-on education focuses on getting your team comfortable using the device. They will gain confidence with the technology and learn how to work with Theia™ to guide patients through the test.
The skills covered include:
- Charging and cleaning the device
- Navigating the user interface
- Instructing patients to appropriately don the headset
- Starting the test for the patient
- Understanding and recording test results
At the end of the session, we’ll observe a team member setting up the device for testing to provide coaching tips.
Practice Implementation & Program Launch
This step of the process will align your entire team, optometrists
Practice Implementation — this includes a working session with key team members. We’ll spend time getting to know your practice and will help you set goals for your AMD program. Together, we’ll outline processes, workflows, and scheduling to set your practice up for future success in identifying and managing AMD.
Program Launch — your entire team will be included in the last part of this session to ensure sure that everyone knows and understands their role in making your AMD program a success — from the identification of patients to scheduling, patient education, and follow-up.
We’ll schedule weekly calls with your practice’s AMD leader to catch-up on progress, understand roadblocks, modify processes and answer questions. We’ll also check to see how your team is performing against your goals.
To help you maximize your success and maintain your efforts to capture and monitor AMD, you’ll have access to the following:
Practice Management Consultant Support — reach out to our PMC team for ongoing guidance and education as needed.
AMD Enrichment Sessions — register for any or all of our AMD Enrichment sessions to further your team’s knowledge in support of your goals.
User Groups — these peer-to-peer learning forums provide an opportunity to talk to other optometrists — experienced AMD clinicians and those new to AMD. There will be time to ask questions and learn how others are achieving success.
Sometimes when you’re working in your own practice it’s like being in a vacuum and you have no idea what’s going on in the outside world. The AMD Excellence Program introduced me to best practices from across the country to help me improve my ability to capture and manage all the AMD in my practice.
Drs. Pamela Lowe, Jeffrey Martin, and Doug Morrow explain how they integrated the AdaptDx® dark adaptometer into their practice workflow and how the MacuLogix® helped them achieve the best results.
