ST. PAUL, Minn. – (December 12, 2012) – Patterson Dental Supply, Inc. announces new updates to CAESY Cloud, its online patient education portal. Practices around the country have already experienced the convenience of accessing CAESY Patient Education multimedia presentations via the Cloud, and now CAESY Cloud version 1.3 offers improved functionality and presentation updates. New features include Smile Channel content, multiple new and updated videos, and improved search functionality – all available via fast, convenient Cloud delivery.
For the first time, Smile Channel content has been added to CAESY Cloud, and most Smile Channel presentations are available in high definition for optimal patient viewing. Smile Channel presentations provide engaging programming for the reception area that entertains and educates patients while subtly promoting discretionary services unique to each practice.
In addition to the new Smile Channel offering, a number of other features have been added to make CAESY Cloud even easier to navigate and run on PC and Mac desktop computers, Smartphones, as well as the iPad, iPhone and iPod. The interface has been completely redesigned to support mobile, tablet and desktop browsers. Additionally, videos now include more descriptive titles and explanations, making it simple to confirm the proper content is being shown during an appointment. A tag filtering feature and new search functionality make it easier to quickly find appropriate content, and dental professionals will now be able to create playlists that play a number of videos sequentially.
CAESY Cloud continues to add new content to stay on the cutting edge of dentistry. The latest additions include a new TMD section in high definition, which features the presentations “Orofacial Myofunctional Therapy,” and “What is a T-Scan?” Updated presentations include information on diagnosing neuromuscular problems and treatment, the equilibration procedure, diagnosing bruxism, and more.
Launched in July 2011, CAESY Cloud currently offers more than 350 multimedia presentations that dental offices can access on multiple devices. CAESY Cloud requires no installation and no network connections between participating devices. All that is needed to access CAESY Cloud is a standard Internet connection. Dental professionals can simply sign up for the service by visiting http://www.pattersondental.com/AppStore and gain access to the presentations for immediate use from anywhere. After subscribing, users can visit the website to access the full library of CAESY’s robust patient education presentations. A low monthly subscription fee makes CAESY Cloud available to dental practices with little initial investment.
