Patterson Dental Introduces Eaglesoft Clinician – an EHR Solution
November 5, 2012
Eaglesoft Clinician is fully certified for federal EHR incentive programs

ST. PAUL, Minn. – (November 1, 2012) – Patterson Dental Supply, Inc., introduces Eaglesoft
Clinician, a fully certified Electronic Health Record (EHR) solution designed to help dental offices
qualify for federal incentive payments. To develop Eaglesoft Clinician, Patterson has partnered with
Emdeon, a leading provider of revenue and payment cycle management and clinical information
exchange solutions. The program is available now to users of Eaglesoft Practice Management
Software, and will be fully interfaced with the upcoming version of the software, Eaglesoft 17.

Eaglesoft Clinician has received the federal government’s “meaningful use” stamp of approval by
earning complete EHR Ambulatory certification. The designation officially deems the electronic health
record (EHR) software capable of enabling providers to qualify for funding under the American
Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA). Tested and certified under the Drummond Group's
Electronic Health Records Office of the National Coordinator Authorized Testing and Certification
Body (ONC-ATCB) program, the EHR software is 2011/2012 compliant in accordance with the criteria
adopted by the Secretary of Health and Human Services.

Drummond Group’s ONC-ATCB 2011/2012 certification program tests and certifies that EHRs meet
the meaningful use criteria for either eligible provider or hospital technology. In turn, healthcare
providers using the EHR systems of certified vendors are qualified to receive federal stimulus monies
upon demonstrating meaningful use of the technology—a key component of the federal government’s
push to improve clinical care delivery through the adoption and effective use of EHRs by U.S.
healthcare providers.

In addition to allowing offices to meet meaningful use criteria, Eaglesoft Clinician also gives dentists
the ability to submit prescriptions electronically. These capabilities add to the list of efficiency-minded
features included in Eaglesoft 16, the number one practice management software on the market.
Eaglesoft 16 streamlines everyday tasks for every member of the dental team, helping the whole
office run quickly and efficiently. Designed to be intuitive and easy to use, Eaglesoft also offers
advanced, customizable tools and features to help practices become more profitable and productive.

To join the list of Eaglesoft offices that are already using Eaglesoft Clinician and receiving incentive
payments, dentists should contact Emdeon at 1.866.369.8805. Upon the release of Eaglesoft 17,
Eaglesoft Clinician users will be transitioned to the fully integrated version of the software.
