ATLANTA – Carestream Dental today announced its new partnership with XCPT, LLC, a leading dental software company that provides oral health practitioners with treatment planning solutions. As a result of this partnership, Synapshot™, XCPT’s latest software application, will soon be seamlessly integrated within a number of Carestream Dental Software Solutions.
Synapshot is new software developed to help dentists, dental assistants and treatment coordinators communicate with patients and colleagues. This diagnostic solution helps practitioners to document and deliver highly visual optimal treatment plan templates – for simple to complex cases – that better patient understanding and treatment acceptance.
"We’re very excited to announce our collaboration with XCPT," said Kathy Ford, vice president of product line management for Carestream Dental. "Beginning with our CS PracticeWorks practice management software, customers will have the ability to transfer patient data directly into Synapshot to create interactive treatment plans, without re-entering information. This integration not only streamlines a practice’s workflows, but it enables practitioners to clearly explain diagnoses and treatment options.”
With Synapshot and the integration created with Carestream Dental solutions, customers will be able to easily include their X-rays, CT scans and photos in a single document to create a completely visual treatment plan. As diagnostic images are captured, they are automatically placed in Synapshot. This means that all practice digital documents can be stored and managed in one location.
“The documents created in our Synapshot software can serve as a roadmap for practitioners providing surgical and restorative care,” said Steven J. Feldman, D.D.S., practicing periodontist, founder and chief executive officer of XCPT, LLC. “Our software provides a unique solution by seamlessly combining treatment planning and patient education videos. We couldn’t be happier about our partnership with Carestream Dental and we are looking forward to integrating our software with their suite of practice management and imaging software solutions.”
Carestream Dental and XCPT will continue to work together to develop stronger integration paths between practice management software platforms and Synapshot - eventually delivering cost and pricing data as well as profitability metrics to individual treatment plans.
