The free communication and collaboration tool is designed to improve business and clinical workflow.
Awrel, a leading provider of web, mobile and voice solutions for the dental market, announced that its Awrel Standard™ HIPAA-compliant texting application is now offered free to dental practitioners, patients and non-enterprise users in labs, dental supply and academic institutions. In addition to providing dentistry’s first tool for HIPAA-compliant texting, Awrel’s solution reportedly offers powerful capabilities to streamline clinical and business workflow in both mobile and desktop environments. This includes functionality for clinicians to exchange information, documents and images (x-rays, CTs and other scans) securely in the cloud.
Starting today, the free full-featured version of Awrel Standard™ can be accessed at no cost at www.awrel.com and downloaded from Google Play and the App Store.
“In a world dependent on technology and workflow, dentists must keenly focus on managing time, information and security,” says Awrel Founder and CEO Arnold Rosen, DDS. “Texting is by far the most efficient platform for information sharing and collaboration.”
A practicing prosthodontist, Rosen says he’s observed dentists become increasingly frustrated with cumbersome, slow, HIPAA-compliant email systems. As a result, many clinicians, labs and company reps are sharing information via native mobile texting apps.
“While this is quicker and easier, it is not HIPAA compliant,” Rosen states. “We specifically created the Awrel dental texting app to give dentists, patients and industry partners a secure environment for quicker, easier exchange of PHI and case collaboration.”
According to Rosen, Awrel’s goal is to remove barriers to the adoption of secure, HIPAA-compliant text messaging so it can become the go-to tool for collaboration and clinical case management. At the same time, the company will leverage the platform and introduce innovative business and treatment solutions to the industry. Awrel, for example, recently introduced advanced capabilities such as voice-assisted, guided data entry for ordering of implants, supplies and equipment as well as integrated capabilities for intelligent conversational experiences with voice assistants such as Amazon Echo and Google Home.
