Evidentiae: MyChart Patient Portal & LeadingReach

 

Hands-On Technology Training

Evidentiae: MyChart Patient Portal is the first diagnostically driven software for dental healthcare. This program finally answers the question. “Just filled out paperwork at the other office, why can’t you use that?” Now we can! Patients can fill out their HIPAA compliance. confidential information, and medical/ dental history just one time. All data is encrypted and HIPAA compliant. When the patient is referred out of your office, doctors in our network can use the same forms. No more time wasted on redundant information.

October 18, 2018 | 6pm – 8:30pm

Course Location:
Cooper Clinic- The Berkley Room
12230 Preston Road
Dallas, TX 75230

LeadingReach is a web-based platform that manages all aspects of the referral process. Instead of business cards. patients receive a branded. HIPAA-compliant email with all the information they need to know about their referral. Having every member of The Dallas Study Club actively using LeadingReach means our club will be more integrated in not just our monthly meetings. but also, in our daily practices. Together we will learn to maintain better, consistent, and immediate communication to and regarding our patients.

BIOPSY: YES? NO? NOW WHAT?

November 29, 2018 | 6pm – 8:30pm

Course Location:

This presentation will answer these questions and more. Join us as we take a deeper look into one of the most important, yet often undiscussed, procedures we can offer our patients. This course will explore not only the role of the dentist but also those of the entire dental team to ensure a coordinated approach to supporting the patient throughout the biopsy process and, when necessary, beyond.

 

  • Become more confident in definitively recommending a biopsy procedure to a Patient

 

  • Understand why the findings of a biopsy, regardless of out- come, are a means of deepening the trust the patient shares with the entire dental team.

 

  • Be able to develop a team-approach for navigating the patient through the entire biopsy process and beyond, when the results dictate further treatment.
