Care Management Platform (CMP)
Build 0.0.0.3504 | March 5th, 2019
These are the highlights of the changes available in this week’s Care Management Platform (CMP) release. It should be noted that this week’s release contains several Voice of Customer items that deliver on recent requests from customers that are actively using CMP to operate their practices.
CMP at the Yankee and Chicago Midwinter 2019
The Practice Management PitCrew was recently out showcasing CMP again. This time, we were at the 2019 Yankee Dental Congress and then the 154th Midwinter Meeting of the Chicago Dental Society. PitCrew members were busy giving product demos, collecting Voice of Customer feedback, and generating new sales leads. Were were able to impress attendees with some of the more recent additions to the CMP product, including workflow enhancements that facilitate front-to-back-to-front office communication and appointment handling. There was quite a bit of interest from several practices, citing that CMP was the most attractive option among cloud DPMS offerings currently on the market. We look forward to unveiling some of the upcoming features - including insurance claim attachments, ePayments Secure integration, enhanced bulk billing statements, and more - at dental trade shows in the near future.
CSI 8 Support and Imaging Enhancements
This week’s release includes support for CSI 8, providing CMP users - with hardware that requires the use of CSI 8 - basic cloud imaging integration. The image acquisition workflow and bridge-supported CMP-to-imaging handoff remains unchanged, as documented in the release notes from October of last year. After installing the bridge, users can launch and pass the CMP patient context to their imaging client for both image acquisition and review. Once saved, acquired images (of supported formats) are then uploaded to the cloud and visible in the patient’s Images UI in CMP.
In addition to CSI 8 support, this release includes a few additional enhancements to imaging in CMP. This includes the ability to specify the local imaging directory, per location, where acquired images are to be maintained (and from which acquired images are uploaded to the cloud). Additionally, we have implemented some enhancements to the filtering and rendering of images displayed in CMP, which improve the browser-based viewing experience. Lastly, users can now remove images from a patient’s cloud record to support instances in which acquired images were unintentional uploaded to the cloud or if an image was uploaded / assigned to the wrong patient.
Optimizations and Fixes
The following fixes and optimizations have been added to CMP this week.
