The dental office is busy, patients are running late and you frequently get sidetracked by the phones and tasks. In the midst of the chaos, the hygienist walks up front and asks where her next patient is. You look at the appointment book only to realize it is 15 minutes past the patient’s scheduled appointment time. Where did the time go?
Time is one of our most precious assets and it is something we can all do a better job at managing. So what if you had a tool that could help you manage your time better? What if you had a tool that could help the entire team manage their time better? Exclusively for Dentrix users, that tool is now available.
During this week’s Chicago Midwinter meeting, Dentrix launched the exclusive distribution of Simplifeye. I was in Chicago for the meeting, and I had the opportunity to see it firsthand and talk with the founders, Zach and Ryan Hungate.
This new software technology will streamline the doctor’s daily workflow, instantly notify the clinical team when their patient has arrived and give you more time in your day. The Simplifeye dashboard will also give your front office team the visual notifications when patients are late, the clinical team is running late and when the patient is ready to be checked out.
- The dashboard will keep a running clock from the time the patient walks in the door to the time he or she walks out. This will give your team data on how often you are running late with patients.
- When the patient is assigned to the doctor for treatment the timer can give you precise statistics so you will know exactly how long certain procedures take and you can adjust in your default time units, which could increase your production per hour.
- With the iWatch integration, the doctor will receive information about the patients currently waiting. The iWatch will send info such as medical alerts, today’s visit and last visit.
