Dear Colleagues,

I’ve made a quick 2 minute video which gives the dimensions of slit lamp protective shield. At the bottom of this blog post, I also include essential websites (AAO, AMA, Medicare) to keep up-to-date on coronavirus & telemedicine.

After I created the video, I used a utility knife to make a slit lamp shield using the harder plastic.

Website links for ophthalmology and practice administrator colleagues on Coronavirus & Telemedicine:

  1. American Academy of Ophthalmology Coronavirus Updates (**Updated frequently. I recommend visiting the AAO site often**)
  2. AAO/AAOE’s Telemedicine primer and essentials. How to code for phone calls, internet and tele-health consultations.
  3. Medicare Telemedicine Healthcare Provider Fact Sheet
  4. AMA Quick Guide to Telemedicine in Practice
  5. American Academy of Ophthalmic Executives (AAOE). Among many benefits, practice administrators and leaders have access to a wonderful etalk listserv which has saved me thousands of dollars in practice management pearls. (Disclaimer: I am on the AAOE board)
