    Having been an exhibitor at past ASCRS annual meetings, Meditab is committed to helping anterior segment surgeons take their practices to the future. This year, our ophthalmology software experts are ready to provide attendees with a firsthand look into the latest advancements in our cutting-edge solution.

    Swift Contact Lens Data Entry

    The latest build of Meditab’s flagship software, IMS, allows ophthalmology practices to enhance speed and accuracy in documenting their patient’s contact lens readings. With the IMS Build 34 update, our ophthalmology module comes with pre-mapped and pre-configured contact lens brands, which allows the system to:

    • Automatically populate contact lens details based on the brand selection
    • Document the contact lens prescription, expiry, and evaluation dates
    • Copy notes about one eye and apply them to the other
    • Print contact lens prescriptions from the Check In/Out screen

    Say goodbye to manual selection and hello to more accurate and more streamlined practice operations.

    Digital Surgical Preference Cards

    Preference cards ensure efficiency, consistency, and safety in the operating room. Meditab understands that a digital surgical preference card feature is indispensable for surgical teams striving for excellence. This is why IMS comes with pre-loaded surgical preference cards that allow your team to:

    • Customize each card to suit each surgeon’s preference and specifications (e.g., table position, glove size, temperature, etc.)
    • Set cards based on procedure, provider, and location
    • Make the preference cards accessible to relevant teams across your practice
    • Streamline operation workflows

    Integrated ASC Ophthalmology Software Module

    If you run an ambulatory surgery center (ASC), IMS offers the automation necessary to streamline, simplify, and expedite your documentation process.

    Fully equipped with an integrated ASC operating note module, IMS allows you to digitize the entire surgery planning process on one comprehensive platform—from pricing and start times to billing and post-ops.

    • IMS helps your surgeons and surgery staff organize their pre-surgery affairs efficiently and improve the planning process by keeping pertinent notes, observations, and objectives in one module.
    • By allowing you to move, update, and create patients' charts throughout the surgery process, IMS enables you to take patient information with you so you won't have to rebuild charts at every step.
    • By automatically reminding your team to perform the required sign-offs, IMS helps your practice save time, ensure compliance, and improve the quality of care.
