Most practices cite improved patient and professional communications as one big reason for using a computerized system.  IMS Digital Office has one of the most comprehensive systems of pre-written letters available in any orthodontic system.  It is also the most powerful and easiest to use.  For standard letters, the staff is not required to learn an external word processor, such as Microsoft Word - everything is fully controlled within the program at the touch of a key.  Each document may be printed immediately, previewed on the computer screen, sent to the "que" or emailed directly to the recipient.  All correspondence is stored as a permanent record on the patient's treatment chart in a viewable\printable PDF format.


Using the ImageScan Scanning System, or a third party imaging system, images along with diagnostic\treatment information can be merged into the letter or document in a way that makes it look like you dictated the letter.

IMS Digital Office allows such letters to be produced automatically and unattended!


Here is a sample of the type of letters that IMS includes:

Correspondence with the referring dentist and patients and / or parents is quick and easy. Standard letters can be created and put into the IMS system. At the push of a button a letter is generated with variables specific for the individual patient automatically entered by the IMS Digital Office system, as well as appropriate images can be included in any letter.
