New Homepage This Week

Our new homepage will be launched this week!

NewHome

As we wrote earlier, we have been working on a brand new look for our homepage – not simply meant as a refresh of PracticeDent, but rather, a reflection of our new partnership with Dental Tribune International.

Our new login page will be simpler, lighter and more elegant. As always, our current users will be able to log into the service, while new visitors will have the option to register a PracticeDent account (the “Log In” link will be in the upper right).

Financial Status Indicator

We just added a new functionality to PracticeDent! It may look small on the outside, but it is meant to improve the workflow – mainly when dealing with appointments and patient finances.

We are happy to present to you the Financial Status Indicator!

The Indicator resides on the colored Status Bar of the Appointment Cards (in Calendar and Reception), joining the familiar Appointment Status Icon.

Whenever you click on the Indicator, a small pop-over will appear, displaying an overview of the patient’s Financial Status at your practice – overall balance, deposits, uninvoiced procedures, pending invoices and late payments.

You will find that the Indicator has three distinct states:

  • White $ in a red circle: The patient is late with his/her payments to your practice.
  • Orange $ in a white circle: The patient has pending invoices and/or uninvoiced procedures, but no late payments.
  • Green $ in a white circle: The patient has no pending invoices, uninvoiced procedures or late payments.

The New Appointment Popup and the Edit Appointment Popup have been redesigned and now also contain a Financial Status section, displaying the aforementioned financial details as soon as a patient has been selected for the appointment.

We hope you find the improvements worthwhile and enjoyable!

Introduktion til PracticeDents Plugin

Nogle af PracticeDents udvidede funktioner – såsom sortering af indkommende mails, røntgenbilleder og IMS integration – kræver, at du installerer PracticeDent Plugin, før de kan fungere. Dette er en lille og let applikation, hvis hovedopgave er at hjælpe dig med at få PracticeDent til at arbejde sammen med eksisterende software og hardware (såsom røntgen, DICOM fremviser og IMS programmer) på alle de computere, du ønsker at bruge.

Vær opmærksom på, at PracticeDent Plugin ikke er et krav. Du har kun brug for det, når du vil bruge røntgenintegration (DICOM), IMS integration og automatisk sortering af indkommende mails på en specifik computer.

Indtil videre er dette plugin kun lokalt tilgængeligt på Windows styresystemer. Dog kan det, mens der arbejdes på, at skaffe det lokalt til OS X og Linux, nemt installeres på hvilken som helst OS X eller Linux maskine ved hjælp af et bredt udvalgt af virtualiseringsprogrammer såsom Oracle VM VirtualBox (gratis), Parallels Desktop (gratis) og andre.
