Through a partnership with Asana, a work management platform for teams, Align will offer Invisalign-trained doctors a customizable workflow solution to help practices track tasks connected to the patient’s treatment journey. 

Align Technology Inc announced an agreement with Asana Inc, a work management platform for teams. The strategic partnership will offer Invisalign-trained doctors in the U.S. a new workflow solution, Asana Smiles for Align.

Asana Smiles for Align reportedly provides a customizable workflow solution to help orthodontic and dental practices keep track of tasks connected to the lifecycle of a patients’ Invisalign treatment journey. Booking consultations, submitting prescriptions, monitoring ClinCheck software treatment plans, and preparing for aligner delivery appointments can be organized, tracked, and communicated across a practice in Asana. This solution, which includes HIPAA compliant features specifically designed for the Invisalign system, can be implemented directly or as an additive solution for practices with other software currently in place.

“As doctors continue to move from analog to digital processes and workflows in dentistry and orthodontics, selecting the right work management solution for their practices is a key decision,” said Simon Beard, Align Technology executive vice president and managing director, Americas. “Through this agreement, doctors will have access to a new option that helps minimize manual processes and creates a clear view of Invisalign treatment workflows from prospective patients through treatment to retention.”

“There is a high degree of complexity in managing a successful orthodontic practice,” noted Heather Stone Hopkins DMD, MS, orthodontist and owner of Palmetto Smiles in Lexington, SC. “Creating an automated workflow with Asana Smiles has been a welcome addition for both me and my team. Due to its intuitive nature, implementation was a breeze. The ability to integrate Invisalign treatment information and tasks with my workflow has introduced a number of efficiencies including improved delegation and accountability with my team. This allows me as the doctor to keep my focus where it belongs, on treating my patients.”

“Leveraging the power of the Asana Work Graph, we help organizations of all sizes improve their workflows by connecting work across teams and functions and automating historically manual work processes. This allows them to have more time to focus on what’s most important—creating consistent customer experiences and growing their businesses,” said Anne Raimondi, chief operating officer, Asana. “We’re thrilled to partner with Align to make this solution available to dental and orthodontic practices across the country.”

This new solution is being showcased at the Align Technology booth at the American Association of Orthodontists’ Annual Session in Miami Beach, Fla. According to Align Technology, Asana Smiles for Align will be available next month for U.S. based doctors and practices, with future expansion efforts to be announced.
