Copenhagen, November 25, 2016 – 3Shape today announced that its TRIOS® intraoral scanner is Dentrix® Connected with Henry Schein’s Dentrix® patient management system. The integration, powered by Digital Dental Exchange (DDX) OS – a web-based service that enables practitioners to quickly and efficiently exchange and manage casework with a laboratory partner, marks the first time that the Dentrix patient management platform Version 6.1 integrates with a digital impression solution.
Now Dentrix practices using the TRIOS intraoral scanner can insert its digital color impressions directly into Dentrix patient charts, which can then be automatically transferred to the TRIOS system when doctors begin new cases with TRIOS.
“Workflow efficiency and patient experience are key reasons why doctors choose TRIOS for their dentistry. The Dentrix integration makes running a practice more efficient and productive, and gives doctors the opportunity to improve patient dialogue and enhance customer experience,” says Flemming Thorup, president and CEO at 3Shape.
The Dentrix Connected version of TRIOS also allows Dentrix users to open intraoral scans of patients from within the patient management system, resulting in greater workflow efficiencies by having a comprehensive view of the patient’s billing information and clinical history on one digital platform. At the same time, having real color TRIOS scans easily accessible in Dentrix, makes it more convenient for practices to discuss treatment planning and oral health with their patients.
Other benefits of the integration for Dentrix users include eliminating the need for re-entering patient data, having a stronger case and patient documentation, improving communication with labs, and viewing TRIOS 3D color scans on any PC in the practice’s network.
