VisualOrthodonticsPractice Visual Corp, Rolling Meadows, Ill, announced the launch of Visual Orthodontics 2017, an orthodontic practice management and automation platform. The company calls Visual Orthodontics the first Orthodontic Practice Accelerator™, a 4-in-1 cloud 2.0 integrated platform that eliminates the need for users to switch between loosely connected modules or disparate applications from multiple vendors.

Visual Orthodontics includes tools related to practice management, clinical support, patient engagement, and marketing. On the practice management front, the system includes scheduling, billing, e-payments, contracts, e-claims, accounting, letter generation, universal query, and HIPAA-compliant email.

Clinical support functions include multispecialty charting, advanced imaging with integrated picture and pan-ceph bitewing x-ray capture, lateral/frontal ceph analysis, 3D alignment tracking, drill-down case timeline, lab orders, prescriptions, and smart notes. Patient engagement functions include two-way communication and a complete suite of integrated online patient forms.

The marketing functions aim to automate marketing-related tasks. The system includes online reputation management, review generation, and online marketing capabilities.

Visual Orthodontics supports both Windows and Mac clients, and allows for use on a number of devices including tablets, laptops, and desktop computers. The platform can be used with both touchscreen and keyboard-and-mouse devices.

Demonstrations of the platform will be available at the Visual Orthodontics booth at the upcoming AAO Annual Meeting in San Diego.
