Simplified Patient Referral
We've simplified the patient referral mechanism. Previously, a referring dentist had to accept the patient and choose which of their clinics the patient record belongs to. This was a challenge because the dentist themselves had to go through this accept process, their support staff could not do it. Now, a specialist can simply select the referring dentist and their clinic and the patient record is now available for all members of that clinic to interact with. The specialist retains the ability to add treatments for that patient. We hope this will streamline specialist-generalist collaboration.
Further, we've exposed the ability to change the referring dentist and clinic as common function on patients belonging to your clinic.
New Feature: Patient Merge
Some users have had multiple patient records for each patient. Some were from the PMS integration Brightsquid provides, some from specialist creating patients on behalf of dentists, and some from proactive staff adding patients manually.
To address this, we've added a feature that allows members of clinics to merge their patients. Anyone in your clinic can pull up a patient record and click on the merge option in the new function menu and then select another patient. This will merge the two patient records, provide a union of all their treatments. Users who had access to either of the two "source" patients will have that same access to the merged patient. Please note that the second patient is the one that will be used for name and address information.
