Rarely, do you come across a computer program that is transformative.  DHRpro is one of those programs that integrates seamlessly with your EMR to provide unparalleled decision support by simplifying many aspects of glaucoma and other ophthalmic-related care.  The program provides unique temporality in the sense that any information you need is instantaneously visible.  Most importantly, DHRpro will help to facilitate the sharing of key patient care information between optometrists, ophthalmologists and potentially primary care managers, making care safer, more efficient and collaborative.  – Michael Mittelman, OD, MPH, MBA, FAAO, FACHE
