Training. It can be one of the more difficult things that your practice goes through. Especially if you're training on new optometry software that will play a role in just about every corner of your practice. Your staff might be resistant to the change, or you might be feeling unsure about your purchase decision. The best way to overcome the fear of change is by having a solid working plan in place to get your practice on the right track towards using the new software.
How to Outline Your Optometry Software Training Plan
1. Sit Down with Your Team
This is such an important step for getting your staff on board. Before you even start shopping for a new system you should include your team on the process. Find out the types of things that they would want in a new system so that you can take it into consideration when shopping.
Once the software is picked, meet again and get their input on how they would like to see the training process go. This way you can all set expectations and goals for the training period.
2. Understand Your Training Options
Talk with your vendor to really understand what types of training options you and your team will have. There might be different options based on your practice needs.
