Patterson Dental Announces Eaglesoft 17
October 2, 2013
Eaglesoft 17 offers new features to help run a smart and efficient practice.

ST. PAUL, Minn. (Oct.1, 2013) – Patterson Dental Supply, Inc. announces new updates to Eaglesoft, its clinical and practice management software. Practices around the country have already experienced the easiest-to-use practice management software in the industry, and now Eaglesoft 17 gives them the power to run more efficiently. New features to simplify daily routines include customized medical history, Eaglesoft Web (coming in early 2014), Patterson Auto Update and Eaglesoft News Feed,  many of which came directly from customer suggestions.

“We are very excited to announce an improved version of Eaglesoft with many features to help dental practices run smoothly and efficiently,” said Jana Berghoff, technology marketing manager at Patterson Dental. “We used customer feedback and suggestions to make this an even better software for practices.”
The fully customized medical history in Eaglesoft 17 allows users to ask the questions they want – making it easier to get the information needed for each specific appointment. Eaglesoft Web, coming in early 2014, enables users to view their schedule, patient accounts, medical history, prescription history, proposed treatment and clinical images while they are away from the office.

With Patterson Auto Update, users will now receive more frequent updates through its web connection, rather than installing a disc.  Additionally, Eaglesoft News Feed, an RSS feed, will provide users with the latest news from Eaglesoft regarding software and technology updates.

Eaglesoft 17 also includes improved imaging software, Eaglesoft 3D Viewer by Dolphin. The updated version allows users to import images into Eaglesoft and use a few select Dolphin 3D tools to manipulate and enhance images. There is an exposure meter to inform users if they are not using the optimum exposure on their Schick 33 digital images.
For Eaglesoft Clinician users, the updated software also integrates with Emdeon’s Clinician EHR Lite. Additionally, a CareCredit bridge provides a direct link to process credit applications, which are automatically prepopulated with your patient’s information.

With Eaglesoft 17, there is increased security on provider and patient notes – a new setting is available to make provider notes editable by creating a provider only option. Lastly, the 2013 CDT codes are available for installation.

The system is backed by Patterson Dental’s renowned support and customer service and the team at the Patterson Technology Center. Customers can choose from a multitude of support options, including Live Help, Remote Support, e-mail support and an FAQ online knowledge base. With more than 125 years of experience in the dental industry, Patterson has the resources and expertise to help customers use Eaglesoft to its greatest potential.
