Dental software vendors are starting to get ready for meaningful use. The partnership between Carestream and Amazing Charts demonstrates an overall trend, where dental software is starting to focus on the overall US healthcare shift towards electronic health records. By partnering with Amazing Charts, all Carestream dental products will have a meaningful use wizard and an MU-certified EHR component.
Amazing Charts is typically used in physician’s offices and has already met the meaningful use goals in many US physician’s practices. Carestream’s dental software will benefit from tested meaningful use attestation tools. For dental practices that already use CS SoftDent, CS PracticeWorks, CS WinOMS and Windent, integration with Amazing Charts will be offered in the near future.
