Updox Introduces New Patient Engagement and Provider Connectivity Solutions at Business of Dentistry 2015

Updox solutions and apps available for use with Dentrix® G5/ G6 Practice Management System

Dublin, Ohio, Oct. 9, 2015 – Updox, the industry leader for physician connectivity and CRM solutions for health care and a platinum sponsor at Henry Schein Business of Dentistry 2015, the industry-leading training and networking event for dental practitioners and teams, is introducing a suite of solutions available for the industry-leading Dentrix G5 and G6 systems. Since 2013, Updox has provided Direct secure email and patient portal solutions for the Dentrix Enterprise platform and is now offering solutions to Dentrix G5/G6 customers.

Dentrix, the market leader for software, solutions and products designed to enhance the dental office experience, is part of Henry Schein, the world's largest provider of health care products and services to office-based dental, animal health and medical practitioners.

During the Business of Dentistry conference, Updox will showcase solutions and apps that can be used by Henry Schein’s Dentrix G5 and G6 customers:

  • Patient Payments – Updox Patient Payments helps practices improve cash flow; offer patients convenient, secure payment options; reduce collections, establish payment plans and add revenue-generating services. A credit card on file feature eliminates the need for statements and collections.
  • Direct Secure Email – The industry's preferred method of sharing HIPAA-protected health information (PHI), Updox Direct email is now available for dentists to use as their own secure email, in addition to an existing EHR Direct address
  • Electronic Faxing – The Updox paperless solution allows practices to collect, review, sign, edit and route faxes in a browser or via their phone and send directly into the chart.
  • Patient Portal – An easily implemented and cost-effective patient portal option that enables messaging, forms and delivery of clinical documents and is a great alternative for practices needing a quick, easy-to-use portal to start engaging patients.
  • Appointment Reminders – A customizable reminder application that supports text, phone and email reminders that even allows patients to confirm, change or cancel appointments. With Updox Appointment Reminders, message replies go right back into the same interface where all other communications happens in Updox.

“Approximately 3,000 Dentrix Enterprise users already leverage Updox to advance their practices. We’re excited to offer those opportunities to Dentrix G5/G6 customers so they can realize the same advantages that Updox provides,” says Michael Morgan, CEO, Updox. “Dentists are noted for exceptional marketing, patient engagement and workflow management. The benefit of Updox is we can bring all of these solutions together into a cohesive suite so practices can focus more on patient care and less on managing multiple platforms, vendors and log-ins.”

Updox will offer Business of Dentistry attendees hands-on demonstrations of key components of the Updox practice communications platform. Updox brings full-scale customer relationship management (CRM) and communications capabilities to dental practitioners so they benefit through lower costs, improved efficiency and greater patient satisfaction.
