In an effort to assist practices as they reopen following COVID-19 closures, Carestream Dental has introduced the Digital Reboot program to support them in their recovery. Carestream Dental has worked directly with practices around the world to collaborate on solutions for some of the biggest obstacles to a safe and efficient environment, the company said in a press release.

“We’ve all learned a lot about what’s really important during these challenging times, what patients value and how to adapt to keep our teams safe and our businesses running,” said Ed Shellard, D.M.D, chief dental officer, Carestream Dental. “Practices have been sharing with us the creative ways they’ve adapted all throughout the shutdown. Following their innovative lead, we’re offering guidance for reopening in a post-coronavirus world; we want them to know they don’t have to figure it all out on their own.”

The Digital Reboot program will focus on the following four main areas:

Filling Schedules: Enabling virtual waiting rooms, patient load rescheduling, and maximizing automation to manage current patient rosters and efficient acquisition of new patients to the practice.

Practicing Safely: Reassuring patients and supporting new protocols, like contactless forms and payments, single-use accessories, and personal protective equipment.

Managing Cashflow: Improving cashflow through new tools, such as digitizing claims processing and payments and providing education regarding key cashflow performance metrics within software applications that are already being utilized.

Operating Virtually: Accessing practice and patient data, education, and training from anywhere, creating a more nimble and competitive practice.

As the industry continues to adapt to this new environment, digital solutions will accelerate contactless practice care and remote management, and Carestream Dental is committed to being part of that solution, the press release read.
