Dr Johnson's office is a very progressive Near Paperless business environment. He has computer workstations in every treatment room. Unfortunately, he must still be able to communicate with other dental offices and businesses that are not as progressive.
The centerpiece of this technology is the OpenDental practice management software. An open source platform that will allow Dr Johnson a virtual unlimited ability of maintaining all the records encrypted, HIPAA compliant and capable of transfer to any future medium.
Seemlessly integrated into OpenDental is the Lighthouse 360 Comprehensive Automated Patient Communications system which communicates to patients via email and text.
All insurance claims are electronically sent from OpenDental seemlessly.
All paper forms and communications are immediately securely scanned into patient file within OpenDental
Then run through a cross cut shredder, and ultimately recycled.
Any transparency, like traditional x-ray film, that is received by the office is scanned using the Epson Expression 1680 Pro scanner, stored in the OpenDental practice management software, then run through the cross cut shredder.
The Topaz digital signature pad is also used securely in OpenDental
