Is there a way for the hygienist to notify the doctor that it is timefor an exam..Basicially, has anyone figured out an intra-office communication system within Softdent?
As a trainer, I know that I unfortunately do not have an answer to this question - I tell offices that I am training they can use a third party system (such as Blue Note) to communicate with each other instantly but that we currently do not have anything like that in SoftDent.
I am interested to see if any other offices say they have come up with a "work around" or idea using SoftDent, but if they have, I haven't heard of it.
We actually use Skype for this, each computer in our office has it's own user name and we've created groups in which we notify and communicate with each other. It works very well for us.
Interesting! So you have Skype on each workstation ? I'm not that familiar with it. Could you explain a bit more how you have it set up?
We use a program called slack, its like an instant messenger that you can send a message to a group or individual. I love it! Its simple to download and use.
Slack: Where Work Happens
We use slack too. We tried using BlueNote, but Slack is free, and very easy to us.
Thanks.. I'll have to check it out. Are you running Windows?
Yes we are. Vs. 7
Yes, running windows 7.
Yes, we are using Windows 7 with Slack.
Our office uses bluenotes and we are very happy with it. It works great for us!
We use Venga and like it. After attending the IT/HIPAA webinar Tuesday (thanks Carestream - very informative), I would be hesitant to use Skype, though I am not an IT person, so perhaps it is perfectly safe.
Do you know if this webinar was recorded? I have been looking for more information regarding HIPAA. I would so love to see it.
Unfortunately, it was not recorded. It was helpful, but scary in the same breath!
I am so disappointed that it was not recorded....I signed up knowing that I could not attend during our business hours but hoping I could go back and view it later! I hope they repeat it and record it!
I am a practicing dentist that developed a system that meets you needs, it’s called Patient Tracker. It is very unique, it uses a product Microsoft developed called .net to run. It literally ‘runs’ my office! It is audio and visual, so it alerts when activity occurs. I invite you to visit my website to view this product and install a free trial copy. There are 2 components, a server and a client that runs on each workstation…. You can install both on a single machine if you like and try it out! http://www.patienttracker.net/
You can reach me at email@example.com<mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org> if you would like more information.

It was developed before competitors like Venga tried to copy our idea.... I am a practicing dentist and am more than willing to share info about Patient Tracker. I can be reached at email@example.com Please feel free to download a copy of the program... you can try it out and install the server and client application on the same computer.... let me know how you like it!
We use Visicom to alert Dr when hygiene is done -or if Dr needs 2nd assistant..phone call etc. Works for us. We have looked for an inter-office communication system but none seem to be simple and work for us.
