Seattle, WA (PRWEB) July 20, 2009
Dentra, a business unit of OCS, announced that its charter partner, Washington Dental Service (WDS), will provide complimentary PracticeView subscriptions to the first 1,000 WDS member dentists who sign up for the service.
"We are excited to be working with one of the industry's leading payers," said Amanda Twiss, president and CEO of Dentra. "WDS and Dentra share many of the same goals in terms of bringing best products and services to customers. Under this agreement, WDS will be offering PracticeView for 1,000 of their member dentists for up to three years at no charge. PracticeView is designed to provide dentists with insight into their quality of care, production, and other performance metrics."
PracticeView helps dental practices measure all aspects of their production, business growth, and quality of care. Information is seamlessly collected from claims data, practice management systems, payer databases, and then analyzed. The results are delivered in easy-to-read, on-demand reports that are used to increase profitability, discover production improvement opportunities, identify growth potential, find new customers, and optimize marketing efforts.
"We have a strong commitment to our member dentists to provide services that support their practice and benefit our subscribers' oral health outcomes," said Jim Dwyer, president and CEO of WDS. "The solutions that Dentra provides help to fill a serious void in dentistry by providing dentists objective information that can truly help them to optimize the performance of their practice and increase the quality of patient care."
Dentists can enroll for PracticeView by visiting both the Dentra and WDS websites.
