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!

Introducción al Plugin de PracticeDent

Para poder usar algunas de las funcionalidades extendidas de PracticeDent – tales como el ordenador de email entrante, integración de IMS y Rayos-X – necesitará instalar el Plugin de PracticeDent. Este plugin no es más que una pequeña y ligera aplicación, cuya principal tarea es ayudarle a conseguir que PracticeDent funcione de manera adecuada con el software y hardware ya existente (tales como Rayos-X, visor DICOM, programas de IMS) en cada uno de los ordenadores en los que desee usarlo.

Tenga en cuenta que no es obligatorio el uso del Plugin de PracticeDent– solo lo necesitará cuando quiera poder usar la integración con Rayos-X (DICOM), la integración de IMS y la ordenación automática del correo entrante en un ordenador en particular.

Por el momento, el Plugin solo está disponible de manera nativa para sistemas operativos Windows. Sin embargo, mientras trabajamos en las versiones nativas para OS X y Linux, puede ser fácilmente instalado en cualquier máquina OS X y Linux machine con la ayuda de un gran número de programas de ‘máquina virtual’, tales como Oracle VM VirtualBox (gratuito), Parallels Desktop (de pago), y otros.
