Enhanced Features with Patterson Eaglesoft Version 15.00
Patterson EagleSoft practice management software, coupled with Patterson Dental’s renowned support services, is a long-standing favorite with dental professionals. Patterson continues to make regular updates to improve and enhance features based on suggestions from current Patterson EagleSoft users. The Patterson Technology Center welcomes ongoing feedback on current features and ideas for new features, tailoring every aspect of Patterson EagleSoft to make it even more convenient and user-friendly.
Several enhanced features based on user feedback have been incorporated into Patterson EagleSoft Version 15.00.
• View Production Goals—Now users can view practice production goals against actual production numbers for any day in the Month-at-a-Glance mode. This view quickly allows dentists and office managers to gauge their progress in reaching their goals and assess their productivity.
• OnSchedule Notes—Users can make notes within the practice schedule as they pertain to appointments, patient requests, and staff meetings and needs. Applicable notes appear for each day on the schedule and multiple notes can exist for any day. All members of the staff can stay up to date on current scheduling notices and changes by reviewing that day’s notes (Figure 2).
• CAESY® Printables—Printable patient literature from CAESY is now included as part of Patterson EagleSoft. Patient education take-home materials print automatically during the walkout process after the service code attached to that specific type of procedure or service is entered. Users can ensure patients have applicable information regarding treatment recommendations before they leave the practice.
