NEW YORK—SeniorWell is a mobile health care company delivering on-site optometry, podiatry, dentistry and audiology services to seniors residing in long-term nursing facilities. Through its relationships with nursing facilities across the Midwest, SeniorWell sees a significant amount of patients per year. In addition to providing on-site care, SeniorWell also manufactures and fabricates custom hearing aids, dentures and eyeglasses in its FDA approved lab for patients in need.

Optometry services via Buffalo Grove, Ill.-based SeniorWell include vision acuity testing, visual field testing, examinations of the eye’s surface and interior structures, eye pressure measurements, eye refractions and the fabrication and fitting of glasses. SeniorWell’s website offers more information for patients and caregivers. There is also a Career Center for health care professionals.

The company uses HIPAA compliant systems and SeniorWellConnect capitalizes on technology at the point of care by eliminating paper entirely. Providers have access to patient records instantly on their tablets and can more efficiently document and review patient information and outcomes.

Recently, the group announced its partnership with PracticeEHR, a cloud-based and specialty-specific electric health record (EHR) and practice management (PM) solution that has supported health care companies for over two decades. PracticeEHR’s system will improve operations at SeniorWell by providing tools to more efficiently schedule patients and record important documentation, the companies said. Additionally, implementing PracticeEHR will allow SeniorWell to directly connect and upload information to nursing home systems.
