Process of implementation

This automation system for dental clinics streamlines operations from appointment booking to post-visit follow-ups. It integrates seamlessly with Practice Management Software, automates patient communication, and uses AI to tailor care recommendations, significantly enhancing both clinic efficiency and patient care quality.

  • Phase 1

Online Appointment Booking and Confirmation: Patients book their appointments online and receive automated confirmations along with a health history form to fill out if they are first-time visitors. This stage ensures seamless scheduling and preparation for both patient and clinic.

Phase 1
Phase 2
  • Phase 2

Data Integration and Pre-Visit Preparation: Once a patient submits their health history form, the data is automatically integrated into the Practice Management Software (PMS). A reminder SMS with specific pre-visit instructions is sent 24 hours before the appointment, while dentists receive a patient summary to review and prepare accordingly.

  • Phase 3

Patient Check-In at Clinic: Upon arrival, patients use a tablet for check-in, confirming their identity and any health history updates, which helps maintain accurate and current patient records.

Phase 3
Phase 4
  • Phase 4

Dental Treatment and Record Update: Post-treatment, dentists update the PMS with detailed notes on the procedures performed and outcomes, ensuring a comprehensive and updated patient health record.

  • Phase 5

AI Analysis and Personalized Care Recommendations: The system uses AI to analyze updated patient records, generating personalized care recommendations which are then shared with both the patient and the dentist for future treatment planning.

Phase 5
Phase 6
  • Phase 6

Automated Patient Education and Future Appointment Scheduling: After the appointment, patients receive automated care instructions tailored to their specific treatments. The system also suggests future appointment timings based on the treatment plan, which patients can adjust if necessary.

  • Phase 7

Patient Feedback and Response Mechanism: Following their visit, patients are invited to complete a satisfaction survey. Negative feedback prompts immediate follow-up by office administrators to address concerns, while positive feedback triggers a thank you email, discounts, and a prompt for an online review.

Phase 7
Phase 8
  • Phase 8

Follow-Up Campaigns and Continuous Engagement: Personalized follow-up schedules and health care campaigns are automatically generated based on AI recommendations, ensuring patients remain engaged and informed about their next steps in dental care.
