American Dental Partners has selected Apteryx, a wholly owned subsidiary of LED Medical Diagnostics, as its provider for cloud dental imaging software technologies. American Dental Partners will transition its entire network of nearly 300 dental and specialty practices based in the United States to Apteryx’s XVWeb cloud imaging technology within the next 12 months.
“Apteryx’s XVWeb cloud imaging software will bring about a fundamental shift in our business. The move from traditional server-based imaging software will profoundly reduce our IT hardware expenses, which has always been a key consideration when assessing our needs,” said Todd Seward, chief information officer at American Dental Partners.
“With XVWeb, American Dental Partners is getting state-of-the-art imaging software capabilities that will also drastically improve the workflow for our practices, enabling patient images to be centrally stored and accessible in real time from any of our providers,” said Seward.
XVWeb, a software as a service solution, moves dental imaging software functionality to the cloud and makes patient imaging data accessible anytime via any web-connected device, in addition to providing immediate off-site backup of acquired image data for enhanced HIPAA-complaint security. Both 2-D radiographs and 3-D data sets can be stored and visualized via XVWeb on any web-enabled device.
“LED and Apteryx provide an exceptional value proposition for group practices and dental support organizations (DSOs), and we are honored to found a new partnership with American Dental Partners, one of the premier DSOs in the country,” said Lamar Roberts, president of LED and Apteryx.
“XVWeb’s exceptional image viewing, analysis, and enhancement tools provide significant budget savings when compared to traditional server-based imaging. XVWeb is unique in its interoperability with the vast majority of digital sensors and imaging systems on the market, allowing practices to continue utilizing their existing imaging hardware investment without the need to purchase new equipment,” said Roberts. “This is a significant advantage when considering the vast number of practices involved in these DSO groups.”
