Ortho2’s Edge is a cloud-based practice management system designed for the orthodontist.
Edge includes innovative features, such as a customizable dash-board, intuitive imaging, mobile apps, patient education animations, appointment reminders, and so much more. These core features are designed to keep your day on track and running smoothly. The Dynamic Dashboard allows all users to see what is important to them at a glance.
A variety of widgets offer you real-time information about your office — from practice charts, to monitoring patients who are in your office waiting for their appointments, and viewing patients in your personalized Stacks — the dashboard can show you exactly what you want to see.
In addition, Edge offers several modules that take your practice from good to great. Edge Animations offers powerful surgical animations, and true 3D (stereoscopic) animations rendered with cutting-edge techniques make Animations one of the most powerful educational tools for orthodontists. Premier Imaging adds comprehensive image and timepoint morphing features to the Edge Imaging suite, in addition to ceph tracing and analysis. And Edge Reminders is a great way to stay in contact with your patients and minimize no-shows. This easy-to-use system allows you to send reminders via phone, text, and/or e-mail.
With the Edge Cloud, you don’t have to purchase, configure, and maintain complex network servers, nor do you have the cost, time, and worries of creating your own data backups. Your initial and ongoing hardware costs are significantly lower. All of your information is stored in an SAS-70 rated facility, which also manages data for large financial institutions and insurance companies.
Storing your information in the cloud means that Edge goes where you go. Edge Mobile, a free app for both Android and Apple devices, allows orthodontists to view vital information, including patient and professional information, their schedules and appointments, Stacks, and user-defined Edge Dashboard charts.
Extend these features to your patients and responsible parties through the newly released Practice Connect, a completely customizable app made just for your office. It provides a variety of features that enhances patient experience and compliance, while at the same time offers valuable information to prospective patients and an area for referrals.
Practice Connect allows patients to interact with their orthodontic experience in ways never before possible. Tailor the information your patients see, including but not limited to, upcoming appointments, images, animations, and even reward points. Additionally, responsible parties can view financial information, including any outstanding balances, and make payments. In addition, patients can set their own appointment reminders, check in from the app, and use another new feature in Edge — Patient Rewards.
The patient reward system calculates points and tracks rewards you offer as incentive to motivate patient attendance, treatment cooperation, oral hygiene, and more. Patients can trade the points they earn by completing common treatment activities for prizes from your office. This use of positive reinforcement helps motivate patients to be prompt to their appointments, schedule their next appointment while in the office, fill out online forms, and even keep their 6-month dental checkup.
In addition to Practice Connect and Patient Rewards, the latest version of Edge includes the following:
ABO case submission in Premier Imaging.
Timepoint morphing, which allows you to take the images from throughout treatment and compile them into a sequence to show how treatment progressed.
The ability to schedule patient reminders for automatic submission based on a user-defined schedule.
Contracts can be designated as open-ended when creating them.
