Q: Can I access the system on a tablet?
Yes, Uprise is a true cloud software, meaning it stores and hosts your data through the Internet. You will access your system by logging into a URL, which you can do from any device with a reliable Internet connection.
Q: What equipment does the system integrate with?
Uprise currently integrates with patient measurement devices such as lensmeters, autorefractors, and keratometers. Check out specific manufacturers and models on the equipment page of our website. We plan to continually add more equipment.
Q: How do you assist with the set up process?
Your practice will be assigned an account manager the moment you decide Uprise is the system for you, and you'll get a kick off call with the Uprise team to determine your practice's unique needs. From there we'll work with you to gather important office information that will help us prepare a specific plan for your practice.
Q: Can patients fill in forms before they come in for an appointment?
Yes. Through the patient portal you can send customized forms for patients to fill out prior to their appointment.
Q: How do recalls work?
Uprise automatically generates appointment reminders based on your customized settings, and you can preset the patient recall reason and notification period based on the time of the last visit. Reminders and recalls will then be sent automatically when the appointment is due.
Q: Can I customize my own exams?
Yes. Uprise comes with a few default exam types, but you're able to configure many aspects of our default types, or even create your own. You can configure exams, counseling materials, message templates, treatment code mappings, dilation set up, and recommendation topics to fit the needs of your practice.
