Patterson announces new updates to its clinical and practice management software
The industry’s most intuitive practice management software is now even more user-friendly—Patterson Dental announces new updates to Eaglesoft, its clinical and practice management software. Eaglesoft 17 has many new features to help practices run smoothly and efficiently, including customized medical history, Eaglesoft Web (coming in early 2014), Patterson Auto Update, and Eaglesoft News Feed. Many of the new features in Eaglesoft 17 came directly from customer suggestions and feedback.
The fully customized medical history in Eaglesoft 17 allows users to ask the questions they want and get answers, making it easier to get the information needed for each specific appointment. Eaglesoft Web will enable users to view their schedule, patient accounts, medical history, prescription history, proposed treatments plans, and clinical images while they are away from the office.
With Patterson Auto Update in Eaglesoft 17, users will receive more frequent updates through its web connection, rather than installing a disc. Additionally, an RSS feed called Eaglesoft News Feed will provide users with the latest news and updates from Eaglesoft regarding software and technology.
In addition, Eaglesoft 17 includes improved imaging software, Eaglesoft 3D by Dolphin. Users can import images into Eaglesoft and use a few select Dolphin 3D tools to manipulate and enhance images. To ensure users get the most out of their imaging software, an exposure meter informs them if they are not using the optimum exposure on their Schick 33 digital images.
For Eaglesoft’s clinician users, the updated software also integrates with Emdeon’s Clinician EHR Lite. Additionally, a CareCredit bridge provides a direct link to process credit applications that are automatically prepopulated with your patient’s information.
With Eaglesoft 17, there is increased security on provider and patient notes. There is new setting available which makes provider notes editable by creating a “provider only” option, making practices feel at ease with their records. Lastly, the 2013 CDT codes are available for installation.
Eaglesoft 17 and other Patterson Technology products are backed by Patterson Dental’s renowned support and customer service team at the Patterson Technology Center in Effingham, Illinois. Customers have the option to choose from a multitude of support options, including live help, remote support, e-mail support, and an FAQ online knowledge base.
