EyeCare Partners Launches New Innovation Center

First-of-its-kind innovation center will harness data and expertise to advance eye care quality, research and education.




(PRESS RELEASE) ST. LOUIS — EyeCare Partners (ECP), the nation’s leading provider of clinically integrated eye care, announced the launch of the EyeCare Partners Innovation Center with a mandate to improve the delivery and quality of eye care and advance clinical eye health education. The Innovation Center will be led by ECP’s Chief Clinical Officer, Antonio Capone, Jr., M.D.

Vision disability is one of the most prevalent disabling conditions among children and an estimated 93 million adults in the United States are at high risk for serious vision loss.

“With over 1,000 providers and unparalleled access to data, EyeCare Partners is uniquely positioned to study and identify the trends that will drive real progress in how eye care is delivered,” said David Clark, CEO of EyeCare Partners. “The Innovation Center is poised to create a new paradigm in eye care by bringing together the best and the brightest providers across every optometric and ophthalmic specialty to improve outcomes and enhance patient care as well as drive eye health and sight saving advances.”

With the launch of the Innovation Center, EyeCare Partners is putting in place the structure and capabilities needed to positively impact the eye care industry. The three pillars of the Innovation Center – quality, research and education – will be fueled by ECP’s clinical data warehouse providing insights regarding treatments and outcomes across the eye care continuum, all gathered from E360+, ECP’s proprietary electronic medical record platform.

ECP’s providers will have access to data-driven insights to better understand clinical outcomes and improve patient care. In addition to fostering collaboration across the ECP network, the Innovation Center will also open the door to collaboration with private practices, academic institutions and leading industry partners.

“Our goal is to ignite a culture of innovation across the entire ECP network that will drive the testing of new treatments, technologies and programs that could affect the entire eye care industry,” said Dr. Capone. “The Innovation Center will allow us to foster innovation internally and externally. It’s a step change and I am excited about what we can accomplish.”


The Innovation Center will work hand in hand with ECP’s Medical Executive Board (MEB), which brings together leaders from across the network. Working together, the Innovation Center and the MEB will be able to quickly implement quality improvements, strengthen research and improve education across the entire platform.
