Carestream updates PracticeWorks platform at Yankee Dental

Carestream Dental released a significant update to its practice management software, CSPracticeWorks during the Yankee Dental Congress in Boston this week.

The new update, version 10, is said to help practices stay up to date with the latest security and compliance requirements. It’s designed to add another layer of patient data security with the integration of new password requirements for all users.

“Advancements in digital technology move at a faster pace than some practices are used to, and the dental industry has had to adapt quickly,” said Nina Gilbert, global product line manager for general dental software solutions, Carestream Dental. “Fortunately, Carestream Dental is staying on top of all the new and changing laws and requirements that have arisen in response to the transition from paper to digital practice management.”

Additional updates to CSPracticeWorks v10 include the direct integration with CS Imaging version 8, which allows practices to seamlessly access their clinical images acquired using Carestream Dental’s latest imaging technology. With easier access to images, PracticeWorks v10 is designed to better facilitate diagnosis, treatment planning, and patient education.

This release also includes all the updated CDT codes for 2020, allowing staff to file claims and receive reimbursements quickly. Thanks to new Microsoft compatibility, practices can easily select hardware that meets with IT needs. Like all Carestream Dental practice management offerings, CS PracticeWorks v10 is available on a Cloud platform.

Also being announced are updates to CS Connect, Carestream’s secure portal for reportedly fast transmissions of digital intraoral impression files. CS Connect v3.7.10’s new online embedded Web Viewer enables users to review exchanged digital impressions anytime, anywhere-even from portable devices. This makes scans touchscreen responsive, allowing for the quick and easy review of digital data.

A new integrated API also allows the CS Connect platform to easily pair with partners’ platforms from the start so digital impressions can be transferred with just one click using the same credentials. This is said to save time by allowing users to leverage existing partner accounts and by automatically detecting new partner pairings and proposing that cases be sent to them.
