The new Dentrix Enterprise More Information module, or “Patient Dashboard,” gives you fast, universal access to an overview of patient information, from basic demographics to future appointments, treatment plans, medical information and aged balance. You can even add a picture to each patient profile. Because you can customize the patient information page to show exactly which tabs interest you, the More Information module reduces the effort it takes to find everything you need to know about your patients.
Assigning security rights to protect your patient information just got easier in Dentrix Enterprise . Now an administrator can create groups of security rights and then quickly assign users and roles to different groups. For instance, if you have a new employee at the front desk, simply assign her to the front desk group and specify what clinic(s) she has permission to access. Anytime you add or remove a security right from a group, those changes immediately affect all users attached to that group.
We have a large amount of patients that will be on Medicaid one month and the get private insurance the next or vice-versa. It is awful in Dentrix because we will file on one and then when we receive payment it makes no sense because we now have a patient on Guardian, but was paid by Medicaid because we updated their insurance. Why can''t we have some form of inactive insurance? We tried making the secondary or tertiary insurance. This did not work as the system is very efficient at finding them and then and sending them out. Does anyone out there have a better work around?
Hello all. We are investigating this request and are seeking some clarification on how to satisfy your needs. Can each of you who care to comment, please post a comment to illustrate the requirements of such a feature? Claims already capture the insurance information as it was at the time it was created and won''t change unless the claim is deleted for one reason or another. Would it be enough to just allow you to be able to go to the insurance information in Family File and list all insurance plans that the patient has had in the past, along with their data and effective dates? If we also added the ability to simply update an existing claim with the latest insurance plan in order to resubmit it, would those two abilities be enough? What else might you need in such a feature?
What ever direction this goes, reports need to be included. Many reports need to be able to identify what insurance was linked during a time period. example (not that this report exists) how many patient had Medicaid from 6/6/68-6/6/68. How much was submitted during that time how much was collected and adjusted. currently theses types of reports pull from what is currently in the family file regardless of the actual time the service happened and what insurance was in place at that time.
Dentrix Enterprise gives you a more powerful way to select patients with new advanced search options. Create targeted searches for patients using more than one criterion, such as last name and birth date or phone number and first name. The new Appointments tab in the Select Patient window lists all patients with an appointment for a selected day, making it even easier to find patients scheduled that day.
