Thorofare, NJ — Healio | Ocular Surgery News was pleased to present the results from a clinician survey conducted in partnership with Eyecelerator at Eyecelerator @ ASCRS 2023 on Thursday, May 4. Results were discussed during The Closing Bell by Julie Schallhorn, MD, John D. Berdahl, MD, and Gil Kliman, MD.
Healio | Ocular Surgery News and Eyecelerator commissioned Healio Research, a department within Healio, to conduct the survey, which focused on ophthalmologists’ sentiment towards innovation in key product areas. The 10-question survey was sent to United States ophthalmologists and residents and received a total of 256 responses.
The survey asked ophthalmologists to look prognostically at factors that will have the greatest impact to practice growth in 2023. Respondents answered questions on what procedures would most likely increase practice revenue, what drug categories would see the greatest growth, and what post-FDA approval factors inhibit their adoption of ophthalmic technology.
“It is exciting to share the results from the Healio and Eyecelerator survey with the ophthalmology community at ASCRS,” said Joan-Marie Stiglich, ELS, Chief Content Officer of Healio. “We are hopeful the data will help ophthalmologists make informed decisions about their practice and patient care.”
Significant results include that 40% of respondents believe premium channel cataract surgery will boost practice revenue in the next 5 years. Additionally, 33% of respondents indicated cost was the biggest factor in the adoption of ophthalmologic technology post FDA-approval.
“This was really great teamwork and expanded our ecosystem,” said Gil Kliman, MD, Program Director of Eyecelerator, during the survey presentation. “We can correlate [the results] into some of the themes we’re seeing at this meeting.”
