Hello! My wife is an OD who is planning to build out her own office next year. She has a location picked out and is currently in the negotiation process with the landlord. I’m helping her do some research on optical displays, phone systems, and surveillance cameras. I believe she currently uses Crystal EMR. I was hoping y’all would be able answer some of the questions below.

Is there an affordable phone system that integrates with EMRs similar to Weave?
Do y’all have any recommendations on optical displays (hoping for a modern look)
How about surveillance system?
She has a sublease several miles away. Will that be a problem to transfer Google reviews?
Any general advice about starting an office? We are grateful for any tips. Thanks!
