Course to provide info on latest updates to Eaglesoft

The 2015 Ohio Dental Association Annual Session will feature a course aimed at Eaglesoft users to provide updates on the new features of Eaglesoft 17. The course will also cover e-services that can help offices work more efficiently.

“I’m going to be going over all the features of Eaglesoft 17, which is a fairly new software that is out,” said Amy Reichert, technology advisor II for Eaglesoft at Patterson, who will be presenting Get to Know Eaglesoft 17 on Sept. 17 from 3 to 5 p.m. and Sept. 18 from 10 a.m. to noon.

Two new features that will be discussed in the course are the customized medical history form and Eaglesoft Mobile, Reichert said. Additionally, topics to be covered include online updates through Patterson auto update, importing 3D images into Eaglesoft through the 3D viewer by Dolphin, how to ensure proper exposure for Schick 33 digital images, the ability to receive the latest news and technology updates through Eaglesoft News Feed, increased security for provider and patient notes, how to link directly to CareCredit applications, and integrating with Emdeon’s Clinician EHR Lite.

Reichert said attending the course at Annual Session is beneficial because attendees will be able to meet local advisors and possibly see a familiar face, plus they will be able to learn from other offices taking the course.

“It’s nice when offices ask questions; offices learn off of other offices. My favorite part is the Q and A,” Reichert said. She added that she finds offices are able to better implement the things they’re learning when they’re able to receive hands-on attention in a course compared to taking a webinar. 

The course is aimed at existing Eaglesoft users, but Reichert said she’s had courses where new users have jumped in because they want to learn about the software.

After attending the course, offices will receive a printout of the lecture that they can use to implement the things they learned in the course as soon as they get back to the office. Additionally, Reichert said she will provide contact information for a person to help offices implement Eaglesoft e-services. These trainings would be done online so that offices could begin implementing features whenever they would like.

“We want to show our support for our Eaglesoft customers, and let them know we’re always here to help,” Reichert said.
