Practice Management Update: Kodak

10 10 2010

On the heels of its recent name change, Carestream Dental LLC, the exclusive manufacturer of KODAK Dental Systems, is rolling out three, all-new solutions that revolutionize office workflow for dental professionals. Carestream Dental’s new Scheduler, eForms and eReminders solutions help practices realize substantial savings in time and money; reduce clerical errors; and take patient care and customer service to new heights.

“Together, these three solutions improve communication among the professionals that staff the typical dental practice and better connect dentists to their patients,” said Robert Patrick, Director, Product Line Management, Carestream Dental. “The challenges dental offices faced 20 years ago are still present, getting your patients scheduled and keeping your chairs full, but thanks to the advancement of technology doctors are ready to make a change. We understand those challenges, and we are focused on improving and optimizing the most critical and repetitive workflows.”

The Carestream Dental Scheduler − available for both SoftDentand PracticeworksPractice Management Software in early 2011 –allows intuitive multi-tasking for smooth transitions between administrative duties and places a library of patient information at office administrators’ fingertips. The Scheduler solves real-world workflow slowdowns using simple, effective technology. By streamlining office processes, the Scheduler helps to ensure every chair is filled.

In addition, Carestream Dental’s eForms not only advances paperless initiatives within the dental practice but also streamlines the time-consuming process of completing patient pre-registration forms. Anticipated for market release in fall 2010, practice professionals can use eForms to create patient registrations, medical histories, consent forms, HIPAA forms and muchmore. eForms enables patients to complete their registration paperwork online and at their convenience —either at home or a computer kiosk in a dental office —prior to an appointment. Following submission, a patient’s registration information imports directly into an office’s SoftDent Practice Management Software, improving accuracy, eliminating time wasted by manually reentering the information and saving the practice supply costs.  Patients can then digitally sign the form when they arrive for their appointment.

With Carestream Dental’s new eReminders, available now,dental professionals gain the ability to automate patient reminders for upcoming appointments, which decreases no-shows and last-minute cancellations. It also boosts production and increases time available for patient care. The flexibility of eReminders lets your patients choose whether to receive reminders via a text message, voicemail or e-mail message, enabling the most successful preferred for each patient. Since each is a paperless option, this further saves practices the cost of materials and postage for mail notifications.
