NEWPORT BEACH, Calif., April 23, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- ALPHAEON Corporation, a leader in lifestyle healthcare and wholly-owned subsidiary of Strathspey Crown Holdings LLC, announced today that it will launch TouchMD™, a premier ophthalmology practice development platform, this week at the annual American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery (ASCRS) meeting (held in Boston, MA). TouchMD is an interactive software platform that helps specialty physicians engage patients in the education process before, during and after the consultation. The software allows physicians and staff to be more effective and efficient while helping patients proceed with greater confidence in their treatment choice.
The launch of TouchMD in ophthalmology is the result of a partnership formed earlier this month between TouchMD and Eyemaginations, Inc., the leading provider of patient education software in ophthalmology. The partnership will ensure that TouchMD users have access to the highest quality videos and largest library of content designed specifically for ophthalmology.
"TouchMD is a huge step forward in modernizing the patient education experience," said ALPHAEON Chief Marketing Officer Shareef Mahdavi. "Just as Eyemaginations digitized patient education over a decade ago, this collaboration will take the patient experience to a new level, turning what was a passive encounter into active engagement."
TouchMD Chief Executive Officer Kary Smith stated, "It's exciting to bring Eyemaginations, the leader in patient education software, together with TouchMD, the state-of-the-art consultation and marketing software, so that ophthalmologists can run more profitable practices and have more satisfied patients. Together we offer proven technologies that will be a game changer in the specialty. Our combined solution will become the standard for patient communication within progressive practices."
Eyemaginations is a healthcare media company with in-depth experience with animation, design and software, enabling it to create integrated systems that provide clear and concise education solutions for customers. With the TouchMD relationship, current Eyemaginations users will be able to upgrade their subscription to include the interactive capabilities TouchMD offers, enhancing the overall patient experience.
TouchMD is a premier practice development platform with compelling customer data showing increases in practice revenue and patient engagement. The platform is currently in use by more than 750 physicians in 10 countries and has been proven effective in helping practices better educate their patients on lifestyle healthcare procedures and treatments. Starting April 25, ALPHAEON will begin offering this unique platform to ophthalmologists.
