ATLANTA, GA – September 17, 2019 – Eye Health America (EHA), a leader in eye care practice management, announced today two new board members – ophthalmologist, Dr. Joseph Parisi, and optometrist, Dr. Scott Han. Both practicing physicians bring expertise in clinical care, patient experience and practice management to the board, as EHA continues to expand as one of the Southeast’s fastest growing, fully integrated eye health networks.
Since its formation in March 2018, EHA has increased its network to include 47 providers spanning optical, medical and surgical. Both Dr. Parisi’s and Dr. Han’s practices have been with EHA since the beginning and are critical to its continued success:
- Joseph L. Parisi MD, FRCSC, FACS, serves as medical director and chief ophthalmologist at Clemson Eye in South Carolina, and has been a practicing ophthalmologist for more than 25 years. Dr. Parisi is certified by the American Board of Ophthalmology and has performed more than 30,000 cataract and refractive surgeries, as well as thousands of microsurgical procedures.
- Scott B. Han, OD, FAAO has been with The Eye Associates in Bradenton and Sarasota, Florida for the past 16 years and serves as Director of Optometry. He is a board certified, residency trained optometric physician, a fellow in the American Academy of Optometry, and Diplomate in the American Board of Optometry. Dr Han will serve as EHA’s Chief Optometric Officer.
“Dr. Han and Dr. Parisi fill a critical gap in our board as practicing physicians with a pulse on what our clinicians need most to run a successful practice,” says Rod Roeser, CEO of Eye Health America. “As we continue to add clinics to our network, both doctors will help our organization make smart business and clinical decisions that improve patient quality and experience.”
Eye Health America has seen substantial growth in the past 18 months, and now includes 22 locations, five ambulatory surgical centers, and more than 600 employees. The organization plans to continue investing in technology and services that create value for its partners, including patient engagement technology and revenue cycle management.
“Boards so often make decisions without knowing what happens downstream, but EHA actively considers how it affects the doctors, patients, and staff. Optometrists are on the front lines of patient care, and I’m eager to serve as liaison between clinics and the board – especially as it relates to elevating and integrating optometry,” shares Dr. Han.
“It’s always better to be part of a team than work as a sole practitioner. At EHA, we share ideas, discuss cases, learn from each other, explore techniques and have access to the latest in technology,” says Dr. Parisi. “I look forward to reinforcing an effective line of communication between the board and physicians, and helping our network continue to increase efficiencies, save money and improve patient care.”
Established by LLR Partners in 2018, Eye Health America partners with best-in-class eye care practices and ambulatory surgery centers to help them meet the growing patient need for eye health services, while delivering superior care to patients across the Southeast United States.
EHA is exclusively led by eye health experts with extensive industry experience in business and clinical operations. The organization provides its member practices with capital, business expertise and relief from many of the administrative burdens that take time away from clinical services.
