CS PracticeWorks Cloud is Carestream Dental’s fourth cloud offering, joining CS SoftDent Cloud, CS Orthotrac Cloud and CS WinOMS Cloud. The platform gives practices the tools they need to work smarter, including a comprehensive set of scheduling, charting and financial features that can be accessed anytime, anywhere on a device with Internet capabilities. The cloud version of CS PracticeWorks also includes several features to enhance practices’ workflow such as the Patient Attachments and Doctor's Work Queue functionality; the eReminders module; and 2015 CDT codes, to name just a few features. ICD-10 codes for CS PracticeWorks Cloud will also be available in 2015.
Workflow has been greatly improved with Patient Attachments and Doctor's Work Queue, which gives practices the ability to attach any kind of document to a patient record; easy labeling and categorization features also makes searching for these attachments more efficient. This feature allows users to flag a patient attachment as "requiring doctor's review," which will move it into a queue for the doctor to review and acknowledge.
Studies have shown that using appointment reminders can reduce no-shows by up to 30 percent. The eReminders module allows practices to connect with their patients through text messages, emails or voicemails. Users simply select a contact message and specify a timeframe and frequency and messages are sent automatically; no user intervention is required.
“One of the unique features of using CS PracticeWorks on a cloud platform is that, as we continue to enhance the product, all upgrades are made automatically,” Matt Ackerman, senior product line manager, CS PracticeWorks, said. “Practices will always be using the most up-to-date version of CS PracticeWorks because Carestream Dental takes care of upgrading practices remotely. Other benefits include secure, HIPPA-compliant storage of patient files, automatic backups and even fewer physical paper files around the office.” CS Solutions keeps the entire process within a practice to provide more control, save time and keep patients happier.
