Reopeneyecare, a new digital platform designed to help eyecare providers navigate the implications of the COVID-19 pandemic on their businesses, launched about a week ago and the response to the site has been overwhelmingly positive. The website features content specially curated by a taskforce of vision community leaders and is sponsored by The Vision Council. The site is intended to serve as a comprehensive, relevant and up-to-date resource to help eyecare providers navigate the complex journey from shutdown back to ‘new normal’ business conditions - and beyond - with practical insights and a collection of best practices, protocols, tools and tips for reopening a practice and maintaining its health until conditions improve.
On this episode of the Power Hour, task force members discuss how you can get maximum benefit from each of the main areas of the site.
Now more than ever, it is important to come together as a community. Click here to watch an introductory video about the site, spend some time on it, then tune in to voice your opinions and suggestions to make this incredible resource even better.
