I was honored to speak at the AADOM (American Association of Dental Office Managers) annual meeting in Scottsdale over the weekend. For those of you who could not attend, I encourage you to make the trip to next year’s meeting in Orlando, Fla. For more information on AADOM, click here.
This year, my topic was “Expand your Digital Future with Dentrix eServices.” In case you missed it, here is a recap.
Today’s dental practices are looking for ways to replace their paper records and forms with digital records and electronic communications, streamline their workflow, reduce waste and clutter, increase productivity and improve profitability. How can Dentrix eServices help you with this?
Ø Create more hours in your week by eliminating the busywork
o Save yourself countless hours by allowing Dentrix to print, stuff, stamp, and mail your patient billing statements. By using Quickbill, you stay in control of who gets a statement while avoiding the busywork. Click here for more information on Quickbill.
o When you receive electronic address corrections, the Dentrix software will automatically merge this new information with your patient’s Family File, saving you time.
o Eliminate your recare calendar and let Dentrix automatically generate your patient postcard reminders, e-mail confirmations, and text message alerts. Now you don’t have to spend time creating the merge files, printing the postcards, and sending them out. Check out eCentral Communication Manager by clicking here to be directed to the website.
o Stop spending time sitting on hold, getting lost in the insurance phone tree or navigating around a separate website to check on patient eligibility or claim status. By using the Insurance Manager feature with eCentral you won’t have to. If you want more information click here.
Ø Increase profitability with smarter workflow and reducing paper inventory
o With electronic communications and billing statements, you don’t have to stock expensive paper forms, envelopes, and postcards. The office will appear less cluttered (and you could probably use the added storage space).
o Cut down on the amount of postage you are using. Postage is included in the price of Quickbill and eCentral.
o Reduce printing costs when using electronic forms because you can just edit them within your Dentrix software for FREE!
o Save on the cost of paper charts and storage space with a digital patient record.
Ø Create a better work environment for you and your team
o If you had a few hours added back into your weekly routine, what would you want to do with this new-found time?
§ Develop new marketing ideas to attract new patients?
§ Start a social media campaign for your office?
§ Take on more responsibility, like the accounts payable or payroll?
§ Do some public speaking in your community on the importance of oral health?
§ Or just cut back your hours?
o Streamline the tasks for you and your team.
