Specsavers launches online network for its optometrists

The platform is designed to enable practitioners at the multiple to engage and interact on a secure network

Specsavers Yammer on mobile
Specsavers has created an online network where its optometrists can “connect and collaborate” about clinical practice.

Having successfully rolled out the tool to almost 4000 practitioners across the UK and Ireland, the Specsavers Professional Network is available on mobile, tablet or desktop via secure social platform, Yammer.

Speaking about the new platform, Specsavers head of optometry development, Kiki Soteri, said: “This is a unique peer-to-peer network, where all of our employed optometrists can get involved by following clinical conversations and by posting their own clinical cases and redacted optical coherence tomography (OCT) images.”

With several threads already active on the platform, Specsavers reported the most popular to be ‘Optoms – OCT.’

Ms Soteri added: “With more and more Specsavers optometrists having the opportunity to work with OCT, it is a great resource for everyone to use in addition to the extensive training provided when the OCT is installed.”
