LEHI, Utah, Aug. 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The market leader in patient engagement tools, Solutionreach, released a new version of its cloud-based Smile Reminder platform that seamlessly syncs with Dentrix G5.
The Smile Reminder platform is now "Dentrix G5 Connected" and will write back to the database of Dentrix G5, the latest version of Henry Schein's market-leading dental practice management system. Write-back functionality enables direct communication, so when the Smile Reminder platform acquires information – such as an appointment confirmation from one of its automated reminders – the data is placed directly into the Dentrix database.
The cloud-based Smile Reminder platform helps practices acquire, retain and reactive patients by providing an arsenal of tools to improve practice marketing and enhance doctor-patient relationships. All of their services strive to increase office efficiency; the write-back relationship with Dentrix G5 ensures that Dentrix customers are able to maximize this benefit.
"We are very excited to be offering our customers a Dentrix G5 Connected version of Smile Reminder," said Jim Higgins, CEO of Solutionreach. "The integration allows us to lead the way along with Henry Schein in creating a more open environment for information exchange and give users a premium experience that really amplifies the benefits our platform offers."
"With Smile Reminder, not only do practices have an automated process for sending appointment reminders, they also have an automated appointment confirmation system that will now intuitively communicate with their Dentrix G5 patient management system," Higgins added.
"A Dentrix G5 Connected version of Smile Reminder integrates these two solutions so they act as one, helping our joint customers save time and money, said Kevin Bunker, President, Henry Schein North America Dental Practice Solutions. "A Dentrix G5 integration is key in helping today's digital dental practices simplify workflow and get the most out of their technology investments."
