COSTA MESA, Calif. , Oct. 22, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- CareCredit, a Synchrony (NYSE:SYF) solution and a leading provider of promotional financing for patients, is now integrated into Open Dental practice management software version 20.3. The new integration is designed to help practice teams save time, increase productivity and provide patients with a financing option in order to make it easier for them to move forward with recommended treatment.
The integration features CareCredit's Quickscreen®, which enables teams to easily identify patients who are pre-approved or that already have an existing CareCredit credit card directly from the Calendar or Family Module — even before they visit the office. Knowing who is already approved for CareCredit and who already has a card, can help make the financial conversation easier. Additionally, practices can now process transactions directly from the Patient Account Screen and have them automatically post back to the ledger, helping to save time and minimize human error. Helping patients apply for CareCredit is also easier. When a patient wants to apply, the patient information is automatically transferred to the CareCredit application, so all the team has to do is complete a few fields of information from the patient and click "submit" to receive a credit decision within seconds.
"Providing solutions that can help practices streamline processes, enhance productivity
and help patients move forward with care, is imperative — especially in today's environment" said Doug Hammond, SVP & GM of CareCredit. "CareCredit's integration into Open Dental practice management software is an important part of our ongoing commitment to respond to the needs of the dental community by giving practices easy access to a financing solution that helps remove barriers to recommended care."
"As practices continue their efforts to ramp up and address the needs of their patients, CareCredit's integration into the latest version of Open Dental software simply made sense" said Nathan Sparks, CEO of Open Dental. "We know providers rely on our practice management software to effectively manage their business and service their patients. Being able to access CareCredit directly in their Open Dental software helps them to achieve that goal."
