Eaglesoft 17: Intuitive, Easy-to-Use Clinical and Practice Management Software

New features give practices the power to run more efficiently

In today’s fast-paced healthcare setting, dental practices can thrive with software options that help drive efficiency and simplify their practice management. Eaglesoft 17, the leading clinical and practice management software by Patterson Dental, offers practices just this. Guided by market trends and customer feedback, Eaglesoft recently underwent a number of upgrades, with the new version offering customized medical history, Eaglesoft Web (coming in early 2014), Patterson Auto Update, Eaglesoft News Feed, and Eaglesoft 3D Viewer by Dolphin. These new features further simplify day-to-day processes, enabling practices to work efficiently and focus on patients while Eaglesoft 17 runs quietly in the background.

The new customized medical history capability allows users to ask the questions they want and gain easier access to the information needed for each specific appointment. The original medical history form is still available, but with Eaglesoft 17, users can create an entirely new form, customize it, and manage multiple forms depending on their patients. This key new feature further simplifies the medical history process, again allowing clinicians to maintain focus on the patient.

Coming in early 2014, Eaglesoft 17 will feature Eaglesoft Web, allowing users to securely view schedules, patient accounts, medical history, prescription history, proposed treatment, and clinical images while away from the office.

Other features designed to simplify tasks and increase practice efficiency include Patterson Auto Update, which ensures Eaglesoft 17 users get frequent updates through their web connection, rather than having to install a disc. Additionally, practices always have the latest news and technology at their fingertips with the new Eaglesoft News Feed, an RSS feed with updates and tips on running the software.

Eaglesoft 17 offers more than just front-office support. Improved imaging software allows for better diagnostic imaging capabilities, and with Eaglesoft 3D Viewer by Dolphin, select Dolphin 3D tools are available to enhance and manipulate 3D images. An exposure meter informs users when they are not using the optimum exposure on their Schick 33 digital images, saving the clinician’s time by capturing the best possible exposure.

Eaglesoft 17 continues to offer software compatibility and integration options for Eaglesoft Clinician users including a bridge to Emdeon’s Clinician EHR Lite. Additionally, a CareCredit bridge provides a direct link to process credit applications, saving the practice time by automatically prepopulating applications with the patient’s personal information.

Practices can feel secure knowing Eaglesoft 17 is protecting their provider and patient notes. A new setting makes provider notes editable using a provider-only option. Lastly, Eaglesoft 17 offers the 2013 CDT codes for installation.

Patterson Dental’s more than 125 years of experience in the dental industry means practices can feel confident their support needs will be met. Eaglesoft users have unlimited access to Patterson Dental’s renowned support and customer service and the team at the Patterson Technology Center. Any questions or support needs that arise can be answered through easily accessible channels including Live Help, Remote Support, email support and an FAQ online knowledge base.
