Historically, many Optometrists, especially solo, independent practitioners who run their own practices were not able to easily find temporary coverage on short notice. The problem was that existing “job boards” typically operated by Optometry schools and professional associations were “passive”, that is, Optometrists needing coverage would post a message and hope that an available Optometrist would see the post and apply.
In contrast, ODsOnCall takes an “active” approach. The ODsOnCall service maintains a dynamic, real-time nationwide database of available Optometrists and when an Optometry or Ophthalmology practice needs coverage, the ODsOnCall service emails all available doctors in the coverage area facilitating a quick response.
The service is free to both the Optometrists seeking work and the Optometry and Ophthalmology practices seeking coverage. The website is sponsored by the creators of DocPIES, an in-office patient communication tool for Optometry & Ophthalmology practices.
Optometrists seeking per diem jobs and Practices seeking temporary coverage can register and request coverage on the ODsOnCall website located at http://www.ODsOnCall.com or via the ODsOnCall Facebook page located at http://www.facebook.com/
