The ifa Academy: Consultancy and Training Services Are the Key to Success
The workflows of eye care institutions are rarely simple. An EHR, such as the ifa EMR, that allows for documenting and organizing each step of these ophthalmic workflows in a structured and detailed, yet efficient manner can thus never be a simple system. The complex character of the ifa EMR, which has evolved inevitably from these requirements, bears both challenges but primarily major benefits for users. These benefits imply, for example, increased efficiency and cost savings and therefore allow physicians and their staff to focus on what really matters: their patients.
The ifa EMR includes a multitude of functionalities to help ophthalmologists achieve these goals. But for users to make the most of their ifa application, comprehensive education and consulting on these functionalities is required. From the beginning, the ifa team has recognized the need for training its clients to make sure users may deploy their ifa EMR in the best possible way. And so the ifa Academy was established.
