Holyoke Health is now using Everseat to fill open appointments! Everseat is an online scheduling app that can be accessed by established Holyoke Health patients to book appointments with their provider. Holyoke Health began using this online tool to increase access to available appointments for our patients. Everseat finds open appointments at Holyoke Health and posts them on the app for patients to book themselves online or through their smartphone!

Everseat appointments are specifically for follow-up and sick visits, these appointments cannot be used for physicals and new patient appointments. Patients must book appointments with their primary care provider.

From the day we opened on June 14th, we have seen 92 patients, an amazing start for our clinic! We are open 5 days a week, Monday-Friday.

Currently we are able to order MassHealth glasses for our MassHealth patients and have a good selection of frames for them to try on right here in our clinic!

Next Steps for Eye Care: One of our goals for the near future is to build a small optical with affordable eyeglasses for our non-MassHealth patients. We plan to have a moderate selection of affordable and high-end frames for our patients to purchase. We also will start seeing patients for contact lens fitting.

We will continue to broaden our insurance coverage and become a retail optometry site for non HHC patients.
