NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--CheckedUp, a specialty point of care company, today announced the launch of CheckedUp Explorer, the new ophthalmology waiting room platform, in conjunction with the American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery (ASCRS) in Los Angeles, California, May 4-8. CheckedUp Explorer expands the company’s fully-integrated, multi-channel Patient Engagement Platform, which features five core components that reach the patient throughout their care experience and help manage office productivity. Demonstrations of the full Platform will be available at the CheckedUp exhibit booth (#615).
“The competing demands of seeing more patients while providing better care and an enhanced patient experience pose an increasingly difficult challenge for ophthalmic practices,” said Richard Awdeh, M.D., CEO and Founder of CheckedUp. “We have demonstrated that we can balance both sides of this equation by providing a comprehensive, wrap-around engagement platform that guides, informs and supports the patient decision making process at every stage. CheckedUp Explorer, our newest offering, was designed to engage the patient while they sit in the waiting room with comprehensive, high-quality content from credible sources like CBS and HealthDay and ophthalmology-specific content from partners in medical publishing. We are already seeing great results with this new product and are excited to debut it at ASCRS.”
“The CheckedUp platform helps my patients understand the ‘why’ behind the decisions they need to make, so they become more empowered. This leads to more of my patients selecting premium procedures,“ said Cynthia Matossian, M.D., Matossian Eye Associates. “I am excited to add CheckedUp Explorer to my practice and recognize the benefits of educating patients in advance of the consult.“
CheckedUp Explorer is an enhanced waiting room TV platform providing an immersive learning experience for the patient. With CheckedUp Explorer, patients can learn about different eye diseases, procedures and treatments while they wait – improving their knowledge and confidence. Practices can also promote new procedures, offered through videos, custom commercial spots and call outs – leading to higher premium procedure adoption. CheckedUp Explorer includes a 43” flat panel TV, engaging full-motion HD video programming, which is updated on a monthly basis, and lifetime system maintenance.

Reaching the patient from home to the doctor’s office and back, while enhancing office staff’s ability to improve productivity and drive revenue growth, the comprehensive CheckedUp Patient Engagement Platform includes four additional components that, together with CheckedUp Explorer, provide several hours of targeted, practice-curated content at the point of interest or at the point of care.
