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!

Introduction à PracticeDent Plugin

Pour utiliser certaines des fonctionnalités de PracticeDent – comme le triage du courrier entrant, X-Ray et l’intégration IMS – vous devez installer le plugin PracticeDent. C’est une petite et légere application, dont la tâche principale est d’aider PracticeDent de bien faire interagir le logiciel et le matériel déjà installé (comme X-Ray, DICOM visualiseur, programmes IMS) sur chaque ordinateur que vous souhaitez utiliser.

Notez que le Plugin PracticeDent n’est pas nécessaire – vous avez besoin uniquement lorsque vous souhaitez utiliser l’intégration X-Ray (DICOM), l’intégration IMS et le triage automatique du courrier entrant sur un ordinateur spécifique.

Pour l’instant, le plugin est automatiquement disponible pour les systèmes  Windows. Cependant, alors que nous sommes en train de travailler à intégrer le plugin automatiquement sur OS X et Linux, il peut être facilement installé sur n’ importe quel OS X et Linux en utilisant les nombreux programmes de machine virtuelle, comme Oracle VM VirtualBox (gratuit), Parallels Desktop (en supplément), et autres.
