Program  Highlights!

The 44th Annual Meeting for Ophthalmic Personnel attracted over 140 attendees consisting of ophthalmic technicians, assistants, coders, photographers, and front staff. This comprehensive full-day program is tailored specifically for ophthalmic personnel, aimed at augmenting the quality, expertise, and safety of ophthalmic patient care.

The agenda comprised a blend of plenary and breakout sessions, all accredited for 1.0 IJCAHPO credit. In the afternoon, participants had the flexibility to curate their own agenda, selecting from a variety of front- and back-office courses.

Heartfelt appreciation is extended to all speakers, many of whom are esteemed members of the Pittsburgh Ophthalmology Society, for generously sharing their time and expertise in delivering lectures.

A notable highlight of this year's program was the eagerly awaited return of Ophthalmic Jeopardy, a perennial favorite among attendees. Contestants engaged in a lively session of question-answering, with winners walking away with a $10 Starbucks Gift Card.

Distinguished guest faculty, including Dr. Mark Rolain representing the Ophthalmic Mutual Insurance Company (OMIC), enriched the event with their insights. Dr. Rolain's presentation on risk management provided invaluable insights into the potential pitfalls of safety protocols and office systems, underscoring the critical importance of mitigating risks to prevent patient harm, including vision loss.

The presence of Jane Shuman, who graciously accepted our invitation to return to Pittsburgh, was truly enriching for the course. With over 30 years of industry experience, Jane is nationally renowned as an authority in patient flow, practice efficiencies, and technician training.

Prior to the commencement of general lectures, representatives from various not-for-profit vision resource organizations took the stage to share insights into their products and services. This initiative underscores the course directors' commitment to spotlighting these organizations, enabling staff to gain a deeper understanding of the resources available for patients.

We look forward to seeing you at next  year’s event!
