Surely you have some creative innovative ideas perhaps like some of the above, however that you use in your clinic or operating room!  We are looking for anything you use that you think might be unique or somewhat innovative to present to our "Sharks" this year in Kansas City.  Entries will be accepted whether you are coming or not to the meeting!

We are still looking for creative approaches to patient care, making the diagnosis, billing dilemmas or other office practices that you use.  (whether you invented it or not)    We hope to see innovative surgical approaches to common problems, surgical tips or special techniques you use that help you solve or treat a patient in the best fashion!

Entries should be 5 minutes or less and can be in the form of a short presentation, short video or combination of the two.  Of all entries, our committee will select the ones which will be presented live at the meeting or virtually.  All other entries can be posted online for our society to view.  

Here are some other ideas that may stimulate your entry:

  • An innovative way to greet patients, check them in efficiently or take care of them in the waiting room
  • Ways of evaluating patients or examining them which help aid the diagnosis process
  • Ways of using staff that are out of the box and very helpful to your practice
  • Methods of sharing the gospel with patients during a busy day
  • Innovative methods of motivating your staff or building a more cohesive team!!
  • Creative ways to capture photographs at the slit lamp for teaching patients
  • Creative approaches to any surgical problems in the Operating Room
  • Innovation for how you work in a mission field setting whether locally or internationally

This year we will have prizes for the best entries and we will have a "shark tank" lot of fun while presenting.  If you are not planning to come to Kansas City, please submit your entry online anyhow as they will all be reviewed and posted!!   Our deadline has been extended to July 20th.   Click here to make your entry!

We know there are some innovative ways to practice and we want to hear from you!!
