Schein releases latest version of Dentrix

Henry Schein has launched Dentrix G5, the latest version of the Dentrix practice management system.

New features include a database architecture that allows Dentrix to become an open platform to enable other dental applications and technologies to link directly into Dentrix, according to the company.

To support developers writing for the Dentrix platform, Henry Schein launched the Dentrix Developer Program, which provides software developers with tools and a certification program for developing applications that work with Dentrix G5. Once developers certify their Dentrix application in the developer program, they can add a new "Dentrix G5 Connected" logo on their marketing materials. All Dentrix G5 Connected applications will be showcased on the Dentrix website.

Other new features include the Electronic Explanation of Benefits, which allows practices to receive, review, and automatically record insurance payments and adjustments for claims submitted electronically using Dentrix eClaims. Insurance claims are now validated presubmission, and the user is prompted to include attachments on insurance claims for carriers that require them through eClaims Attachment Notifications, thereby reducing rejected or pended claims.

In addition, the new Screen Capture utility allows users to drag over any part of the visible screen to create a new document and save it to the Document Center.

There is also a new Dentrix Mobile upgrade, an add-on product for Apple iPad and Motorola Xoom tablet users.
