The system offers customizable examination templates, automated compliance checks, integrated e-prescribing, secure instant messaging, billing management, electronic claims, appointment management, a point of sale (POS), inventory management tools, patient portal, and more.

Eyecare Advantage includes a one-tab layout for examination documentation and a Visual Documentation Engine (VDE) for automatic creation of exam documentation and orders based on the patient’s diagnosis. Eyecare-specific templates can be customized to suit practice methods, and adaptive learning technology built into Eyecare Advantage allows the system to learn individual practice patterns during examinations, and adapt to each practice’s style. Data can be entered using voice, touch screens, or tablets, and patient information can be imported into patient records directly from more than 150 ophthalmic equipment interfaces. The built-in DICOM-based image viewer allows users to view, interpret, and manipulate imported patient information.

For practice management, Eyecare Advantage includes tools for managing appointments, patient tracking, insurance eligibility verification, billing, and claims. Multiple appointments can be booked with a single click, and users can view appointments at-a-glance by the day, week, month, or office, and customize schedules based on locations, resources, or providers. An unlimited number of active insurance companies can be recorded for each patient, and users can define multiple plans and fee schedules for payment. PCI-compliant payment processing allows users to accept debit and credit card payments, and users can manage financial information with the integrated general ledger, accounts payable, and accounts receivable, and through interfaces with QuickBooks and other accounting systems.

Eyecare Advantage also includes a point of sale (POS) system, lab ordering capabilities, and multi-location inventory management tools for optical dispensing.

Expectations More Than Met and More To Offer When I am Ready to Expand

Used daily for 2+ years
Reviewed 2020-08-07
Review Source: Software Advice

The Compulink Help Line is Outstanding. I can easily explain my issue (or what I want to accomplish) and I am directed to the department appropriate person in a timely manner who can assist me quite efficiently and professionally.

Pros
Compulink Software is all inclusive for my current needs - a combined PM and EHR. Also, I am not locked into one type of template. For example, most my patients have Retina issues, but if a patient also happens to have another issue, I can import a problem appropriate Tab and I don't need to have it unlocked for me by the company (or pay more). I could see where this would be advantageous for a multi-specialty practice (even though I am not one). There are also multiple other resources I can choose to incorporate and use that is available as options to add to the software's capabilities (e.g., RCM) as my practice grows. The really nice thing is that I can function efficiently now and utilize Compulink Software (in all my various roles) at a good price point and still anticipate how I can incorporate what Compulink has to offer as my practice grows.

Cons
Setting up the Look Up Tables took me a long time but I was a new practice that did not have much (or any) of that information in a readily available database to put into the Look Up Tables or did not know how to organize particular information prior to being asked by Compulink to place such information into my Look Up Tables. On the plus side, needing to spend the time to build my Look Up Tables, helped me understand how the back end of the PM/EHR worked.

Compulink Orthopaedic Advantage is the best orthopaedic EHR solution!

Used daily for 1-2 years
Reviewed 2020-10-08
Review Source: Software Advice

Very well-integrated and coordinated implementation team. Although [SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN] was primarily responsible for our implementation, everyone on the implementation and support teams have been very helpful and friendly. I have not had any bad or difficult interactions with anyone at Compulink.

Pros
Although, the software was originally written for ophthamology, Compulink has done a great job adapting to orthopaedic surgery with Compulink Orthopaedic Advantage. The visual diagnosis engine function is very helpful for identifying and documenting specific pathology in various anatomic regions. The software easily accomodates the physician/provider preference for input to the EHR. There are template for dictation, drop-down menus, or manual entry (scribe). Microsoft Remote Access for Compulink Cloud Advantage implementation was very easy and device friendly. I am able to access Compulink from literally anywhere with internet access on my iPad, Windows, Mac, Android, laptops, etc.... I was able to easily and effectively implement DICOM MWL to manage my patient workflow with in-office X-ray and cloud PACS.

Cons
Customization of template features is somewhat difficult to do on your own, if you are hands-on. The technical and implementation support is outstanding and will customize for you. There are still some bugs that need to be fixed and features that I would like to see implemented. Web Registration is tedious and slow for patients. All patient outcome measures are displayed and may not necessarily be relevant to the patient. Need to be able to designate the outcome measures for each particular patient. Caveat: I did not have my own IT person. I implemented the software, myself.

Very out dated

I love their customer service. The rest is very complicated and out dated.

Pros
I loved the customer support. We have used the system for about 8 years and the customer support is great! They get back to you quickly and always willing to help.

Cons
It is very complicated and seems outdated. You have to build tables in the calendar and add times. Also the updates usually go very bad. One time all of our calendars went missing and we lost all our appointments.

Unique practice needed an extraordinary software.

Used daily for 6-12 months

Review Source: Software Advice

I have a nursing home based practice and therefore my practice is very unique and I issued Compulink a very difficult challenge to solve many issues with note taking and practice flow and practice management and they have lived up to every challenge so far and they have frankly surpassed my expectations in almost every scenario. This is a great software with GREAT people!

Pros
This software is very robust and therefore is capable of doing so much for my practice. The data mining and reports are an incredible tool in my practice. The ability to link in forms and mine that data has been a huge time saver for my practice. There is so much customizing that can be done that you can create the software you want. The more work you are willing to put in the more efficient and thorough you can be. This software has saved my office space hours per week in its ability to manage schedules and use data mining and run reports. The worklists they created for us have become indispensable as well. For the most part, with this software, if you can think, then they can typically do it. And most importantly, the people at Compulink have been absolutely amazing. They have an amazing group of people there and they should be proud. Can't wait to see what this will look like in my practice 5 years from now.

Cons
Can be cumbersome to customize at times, but it has always been worth the effort. I have been experiencing far too many crashes and 'freeze ups' and that can be frustrating.

Pros
Compulink is a company that shares our values. They believe in providing the best solutions so their clients can be the best. Changing practice management software is an investment in time and resources, so we went with Compulink. We are confident they will continue to be the best solution in the future as we grow from a medium organization into a large organization.

Cons
Change is always hard, but the Compulink team is easily accessible during the implementation process.
