U of M Student Fair 2014

XLDent attended the University of Minnesota Dental School student fair this week.  Over 325 future dentists attended.  These future dentists saw how efficiently a paperless office can function using XLDent and the mobility of tablet PCs in the clinical area.  There were a lot of questions regarding the electronic health record (EHR) and how it will affect the future dental office.

Efficient clinical workflow is a key focus of the XLDent Dental Practice Management System.  The students were pleased to see technology being designed for the future dental office.

The Buzz on DoseSpot’s EPCS Certification

DoseSpot selectively pursued EPCS Certification with Drummond Group, one of the first DEA approved certification bodies. “After undergoing Drummond Group’s extensive audit process and phased approach to understanding the EPCS requirements, DoseSpot may now deliver audited and trusted EPCS software to their customers,” said Aaron Gomez, Drummond Group’s Director of EPCS Auditing.

SCDI Sponsored CE Course Highlights

Following the Standards Committee on Dental Informatics meetings Monday-Wednesday, the SCDI sponsored two standards-based CE courses at ADA 2014.  The courses were offered twice a day on Thursday-Friday and again on Saturday morning.  XLDent presented in the course entitled Standards for Exchange of Digital Images and EHR Data for Patient Treatment.  This course was presented by Dr. Gregory Zeller, SCDI Chairman, and demonstrated the transmission of HIPAA-compliant email with patient image and clinical summary attachments.

Vendor participation was crucial for a real-world presentation of these standards and demonstration of how email is sent through a Health Information Service Provider.  DataMotion™, located in Florham Park, New Jersey, acted as the third-party HISP and facilitated acquisition of direct email addresses for all of the vendor participants.

XLDent was selected by the SCDI to participate in this demonstration because of our leadership and focus on the further development of standards for the Electronic Dental Record.  Other vendors included XDR, Sirona and Medicor Imaging.  These vendors primarily focused on the transmission of DICOM images.  As a Dental Practice Management Software solution, XLDent was able to not only demonstrate the secure transfer of DICOM images, but also the transmission of Clinical Notes and Electronic Dental Record data.  Participants were able to see how streamlined the process of data export is in the XLDent paperless workflow and also got to see our mobile technology in action.

The courses were well attended and established a starting point for educating the ADA membership about standards and the secure transmission of PHI using direct protocols.  This a beginning.  However, it can only be truly successful when utilization of direct email addresses becomes the norm.  In the meantime, dental practices should protect email transmissions containing PHI utilizing high-grade encryption services like the SecureMail solution XLDent offers its clients.

It was a very busy week!  We made lots of new friends and thoroughly enjoyed the experience.  A special thanks to the ADA and the other vendors that helped make this CE course possible!
