Kansas City University College of Dental Medicine selects eClinicalWorks as platform for new dental program

WESTBOROUGH, Mass.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–eClinicalWorks®, the largest ambulatory cloud EHR, today announced a partnership with the Kansas City University (KCU) College of Dental Medicine. In July 2023, KCU’s College of Dental Medicine will welcome its first round of students and use eClinicalWorks’ Electronic Dental Record (EDR) software to train these future dental health professionals to meet the growing oral health needs of the four-state region.

After conducting an extensive study of all available EDR solutions, KCU’s College of Dental Medicine selected eClinicalWorks for its robust functionalities, ease of use, and integrated medical records for interprofessional education and care. “We were impressed with eClinicalWorks’ experience working with community health centers (CHCs).

The eClinicalWorks cloud-based EDR provides a complete overview of a patient’s dental history, problem lists, medications and allergies. With eClinicalWorks EDR, the KCU College of Dental Medicine will have access to:

  • Online booking and contactless check-in through healow Open Access®,

  • healow TeleVisits™ for patient evaluations, preoperative consultations and postoperative check-in visits,

  • Tools for patient engagement – ​​such as the patient portal, healow® app and eClinicalMessenger®– for reminders, follow-up treatment and patient satisfaction surveys and

  • Interactive diagrams to show tooth movement, quick start buttons for procedures, cost estimation tools and referral, order and medication management.

“We are proud to partner with the KCU College of Dental Medicine as they train the next generation of dental health professionals,” said Girish Navani, CEO and co-founder of eClinicalWorks. “This partnership will help equip future dental health professionals with the skills to operate effectively and efficiently after graduation and enhance our streamlined dental care offering. eClinicalWorks continues to experience tremendous success with our comprehensive cloud-based electronic dental records as we add hundreds of new dental clients.”
