Ortho2, Ames, Iowa, released ViewPoint 10.1. This new version of ViewPoint introduces enhanced features and improved functionality designed to optimize efficiency for orthodontic practices, according to the company.

The new version of ViewPoint allows users to schedule automatic recurring messages like daily appointment reminders and birthday reminders, and patients can choose the method by which they want to be contacted. An office calendar feature also allows users to review and schedule non-patient appointments and meetings, and multiple calendars can be created within the same office.

Also in ViewPoint 10.1, the On-Deck module has been updated so users can now use a sign-in button with touch screen devices in lieu of the standard sign-in prompt. Patients can also flip through available prizes and request a prize at the sign-in screen, sending a message to staff once a prize is requested.

Other new features in ViewPoint 10.1 include a Spanish version of the Appointment Card; custom reversal reasons can be entered when reversing a transaction; and new merge fields include Last Receipt Description and Last Receipt Note. ViewPoint is compatible with SQL Server 2014.
