Ahead in the clouds Introducing NEW Optinet Nova

Optinet – the IT services division of the National Eyecare Group (NEG) – will launch its innovative new cloud-based practice management software (PMS) system at 100% Optical next month.

With the integration of cloud-based technology, Optinet Nova not only inherits the strengths of the company’s flagship PMS – Optinet Flex – but introduces a new era of accessibility, scalability and collaboration. “Although our in-house development team have spent the last few years
developing Nova from the ground up, the system builds on the success of Optinet Flex,” commented Chris Smith, Optinet operations director. “This means we have kept everything users love about Flex, but looked at how we could make their experience even better.”

The move from an on-premises PMS solution (Flex) to a cloud-hosted one (Nova) enables users to access the platform at any time, from any location and on any device. Additional benefits include: lower capital investment in practice hardware; simplified IT management in the practice; and superior security and reliability. “In Nova, the patient is at the centre of the user experience – with their entire history available from the patient record,” Chris explained. “We refer to this as ‘patient-centric software’. A vertically scrolling patient record with quick-access buttons allows the user to quickly jump to each section. Patients can now have multiple addresses, telephone numbers, email addresses, lifestyle stars and, importantly, unlimited recalls. “Optinet Nova Clinical Record enables users to personalise their patient records from pre-built templates and quickly move between them. It offers an array of additional functionality – from eGOS and dispensing to built-in staff messaging and contact lens schemes, to supplier address book and more. Optinet also offers comprehensive service and support either in-practice or online
– including data conversion from other systems, on-site training at installation, remote telephone support, management ‘away days’ and training courses at its Worcestershire offices. An online customer portal is available 24/7 where practices can look up FAQs and log new support tickets.

Optinet Nova will be officially launched at 100% Optical, taking place at ExCeL London from 24-26 February. Visitors to the stand (M350) can try the system and receive a demonstration from one of the team. Follow-up demonstrations can be booked after the show.

As with Optinet Flex, NEG members are eligible for a 12-month free trial to ‘try before they buy’ Optinet Nova. Members who continue with Optinet Nova after the trial will benefit from a discounted monthly rental fee.
