Addition to OrthoCatapult Platform Provides Virtual New Patient Consultations, Virtual Checkups
Traverse City, Mich. (March 9, 2021) – Today, Practice Catapult LLC (Practice Catapult) announced OrthoConnect®, the newest component of their OrthoCatapult® platform. OrthoConnect provides orthodontists a specialized, HIPAA-compliant, cloud-based application to manage and execute virtual patient appointments, review orthodontic treatment plans, and ultimately, help more patients say “Yes” to orthodontic treatment. OrthoConnect is currently the orthodontic industry’s only HIPAA-compliant A-to-Z solution for virtual new patient consultations and existing patient virtual checkups using any mobile internet browser.
OrthoConnect joins OrthoCatapult’s unique offerings specifically designed for the orthodontic industry, which already includes tools for patient communication and follow-up, payments and billing, patient education and more. Additionally, no app or download is required by the patient to use OrthoCatapult’s services with their orthodontic provider, making the system user-friendly for patients with varying levels of tech experience.
“Until now, orthodontists were forced to piecemeal together several different applications to try to create a comprehensive digital experience for consumers and patients, resulting in a disjointed experience that is also unnecessarily expensive.” said Chris Criner, Vice President, Practice Catapult. “With the addition of OrthoConnect to the OrthoCatapult platform, orthodontists now have a true A-to-Z seamless solution that is unmatched in capabilities, performance, value, and ease of use for patients and practices.”
Working with OrthoCatapult’s existing suite of tools, including OrthoAccept™, OrthoMessenger®, OrthoGallery® and OrthoAnalytics®, OrthoConnect’s virtual new patient consultation process gives orthodontists an intuitive and secure method to capture patient photos and treatment preferences, seamlessly present up to three treatment plans, and allows families the flexibility of creating a customized payment plan using the OrthoAccept payment plan calculator’s down payment and monthly payment sliders. For existing patients, OrthoConnect replaces unnecessary in-office appointments with virtual checkups including three unique pathways for progress, discomfort, and retainer checkups.
