PracticeWorks Systems LLC, the exclusive maker of KODAK Dental Systems, has introduced eForms, a new tool for electronically capturing forms traditionally filled out by hand by the patient. The eForms module (available in the first quarter of 2010) creates a way to collect patient information electronically.

Patients may enter information online or through a workstation kiosk. The patient’s record is automatically updated with new or changed information, and patients know exactly what electronic forms they need to complete, since the process is automated. The system also eliminates supply costs associated with paper forms. Other future releases include modules for patient scheduling, reminder services, and referral services.

The new software can be integrated with existing practice-management systems including KODAK PRACTICEWORKS, SOFTDENT, ORTHOTRAC, and WINOMS CS. The new features can be downloaded from the Internet.
