Medical Eyeglass Center (MEC) Joins the See.Hear.Live.Better! Alliance
SARASOTA, Fla., April 9, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — See.Hear.Live.Better! today announced that leading optical dispensary management company, Medical Eyeglass Center (MEC), has joined its alliance of healthcare service providers backed by leading product manufacturers, all focused on improving the quality of life through vision, hearing and lifestyle services.
The recently formed alliance was founded by MedFocusCapital Partners, Inc., an innovator in the delivery of non-reimbursed services in the eye care industry for the past decade. Ron Greenberg, a thirty year veteran in the eye care industry and President of MedFocusCapital Partners, Inc., states, “Medical Eyeglass Center has a deep and experienced team of professionals dedicated to maximizing results in all areas of a practice’s optical department. Joining forces will permit us to create ophthalmology programs that are second to none.”
In 1974, MEC pioneered the concept of providing optical management services for ophthalmologists and continues to deploy the best techniques in the industry, optimizing the profitability of eye care businesses across the nation. Through the new alliance, service providers like MEC, will be able to better design and implement comprehensive vision, hearing, and dual sensory programs that permit their clients (practices) to experience growth and provide a more convenient and better lifestyle experience for the patient.
Rob Katz, President, MEC, states, “Medical Eyeglass Center is proud to join the See.Hear.Live.Better! Alliance as a core member providing comprehensive optical management services. As the eye care industry continues to react and evolve to pressures on reimbursement for healthcare services, ophthalmology practices are expanding their reliance and focus on profitably providing ancillary services such as hearing and optical. We see this Alliance as a key strategic initiative for our organization going forward.”
Through the See.Hear.Live.Better! Alliance, practices will work closely with a national team of Business Development Managers, to implement the Diagnostic to Treatment Pathway process. The organization supports all programs through marketing initiatives, analytics and sophisticated tools that ensure an individual practice’s program success. Alliance programs may be implemented comprehensively or independently based on the practices needs.
