Posted April 26, 2021 by Beth
With XLDent, you’ll find all the right tools to go seamless, mobile, and paperless at once. At every point of patient care, XLDent provides tablet-friendly paperless solutions that improve your efficiency and productivity on the go. Maybe you’ve thought about going paperless in your dental practice but aren’t exactly sure where to start or what elements you’ll need to consider. We have curated these keys to a paperless practice, so you know what to expect along the way.
A fully digital office means that your patients will need the right tools before they even get to your waiting room and then again when they leave your office. XLPortal is a web-based solution that allows you to offer convenience to your patients, build relationships, improve office efficiency, and increase your productivity, all while creating a pathway for paperless patients. It is directly integrated with your XLDent dental practice management system to provide electronic dental record information in real-time to you and your patients. With XLPortal Patient Portal, your patients can complete all of their registration forms online. They can also access billing statements and make payments through the portal. With the addition of XLDent’s XLConnect, you can even remind patients to log on to their account to complete necessary forms before arriving for their appointment. Paperless, digital forms can be set to auto-recur or queued by staff from the Intelligent Document Center within the XLDent Dental Practice Management system. Once they arrive at your office, patients can then use XLCheckIn to check in to your waiting room and complete any remaining forms via a Tablet PC.
From clinicians to office administrators, everyone in your office works a little differently. Fully customizable workflows make it easy to set XLDent software to your exact specifications, increasing your office’s output and efficiency. Customizable workflows also help take the pain out of paperless in a big way.
Imagine paperless charting featuring fully customizable tooth charts, restoration graphics, periodontal exams, and progress notes. XLChart is the most powerful and professional system available. Exams can be customized for any entry order and completed with a keyboard/mouse/pen/touch. Additionally, periodontal exam and progress note entry can be voice-activated. Compare exams, manage treatment progress, and digitally send information to support insurance or to collaborate a case with a colleague. With the Ink Forms feature and a Tablet PC, any exam sheet or patient form can quickly be digitized and added to your Ink Forms library. XLChart and Ink Forms can provide you with the flexibility and power of a paper chart without the paper, putting it in a class of its own.
Digital Image Integration
From digital x-ray systems including panoramic, sensor, and phosphor plate systems, ImageXL stores images from any digital imaging peripheral and integrates them seamlessly into your patients’ charts. Attach photos directly to the face of the dental chart, pair with the functionality of a Tablet PC, note watch areas, and organize your diagnostic and cosmetic images using one complete solution. ImageXL is compatible with all Dental Practice Management systems and is a necessary component of the electronic dental record.
Easily send prescriptions electronically and benefit from instant access to patient medication history, LexiComp’s medication database, drug-drug, and drug-allergy interactions. With most states banning handwritten prescriptions in the medical and dental fields, electronic prescribing is not only paperless; it is essential! XLDent offers INTEGRATED ePrescribing services to help you complete your electronic dental health record.
XLDent is certified to send Electronic Prescriptions for Controlled Substances (EPCS) that equips XLDent dentists with the ability to securely ePrescribe controlled substances.
Interoffice communication is made simple with XLNotify instant messaging. Send your message to a single person, a group of people, or broadcast your message throughout the office. XLNotify is a massive upgrade from the post-its and taped notes your team usually leaves one another.
