MouthWatch will showcase a variety of upgrades to its TeleDent teledentistry platform in its booth this week at the 2020 Chicago Dental Society Midwinter Meeting.
TeleDent now includes enhanced video conferencing, integrated provider chat, and a patient portal, according to the vendor. The platform now supports capture of still images, videos, and full-length video conferences directly into the patient record program. Other video conferencing upgrades include multicamera support for intraoral images, the ability to create "freeze-frame" video images, expanded store and forward capabilities, video conference chat, and teleconference screen sharing, MouthWatch said.
TeleDent's new provider chat functionality is HIPAA-compliant and enables sharing of audio, video, and still-photo attachments via encrypted messaging, according to the company. Visual treatment plans can be shared from provider to provider or from provider to patient.
Existing TeleDent customers can receive the video conferencing, provider chat functionality, and patient portal upgrades free of charge, and all new customers can access these new features now on new purchases, MouthWatch said..
