Carestream Dental has recently entered into an agreement with OMSNIC, providing it the exclusive right to license and embed OMSNIC’s Informed Consent Forms into CS WinOMS practice management software.
“Our goal for CS WinOMS has always been to streamline a practice’s workflow,” Logan Driskell, senior product line manager, CS WinOMS, Carestream Dental, said. “Easy access to these vital forms from within the software decreases the number of clicks; reduces error; and speeds up paperwork processing. We’re also very excited to be able to offer these consent forms to all CS WinOMS users, not only OMSNIC policy holders.”
Informed consent is a vital precursor to providing advanced oral health care. Such permission ensures that patients understand the extent of recommended procedures and provides a record of either acceptance or refusal of treatment.
“Risk management is an important consideration for all oral health care providers, especially oral surgeons,” Gary Salman, US director, oral and maxillofacial surgery, Carestream Dental, said. “These consent forms improve patient safety and protect surgeons and their practices by reducing liability.”
“OMSNIC believes in broad distribution of its informed consent forms within the OMS profession,” Bill Passolt, president and CEO, OMSNIC, said. “Partnering with a leading software firm like Carestream Dental ensures OMS practices have the most current updates of these forms in their practice management software. This significantly reduces the administrative burden for OMS and improves patient education and safety. OMSNIC welcomes the opportunity to work with Carestream Dental to enhance the OMS practice”
CS WinOMS practice management software has been providing the tools oral and maxillofacial surgeons need to effectively manage their practice for over 20 years. The software features medical and dental insurance billing with automatic cross-coding, scheduling and a complete range of tools to help track and maintain patient health. The software is also available on Carestream Dental’s cloud platform.
