BHA announces Pearl for Welsh NHS dental practices
Pearl Dental Software now meets transmission requirements for the Welsh NHS Board
BHA Limited today announced that the latest member of the Pearl family of software systems now supports transmission to the Welsh NHS Board. Pearl Dental Software NHS Edition fully supports practices operating digitally in Wales and makes Pearl’s ‘complete patient journey support’ available to any NHS and mixed practice in The Principality.
Pearl Dental Software employs a cloud-based architecture allowing principal dentists, practice managers and staff who operate on more than one site to access the software and data remotely. Its modern architecture helps deliver both functional innovations and a modern look and feel to the software.
Ben Baker, MD of BHA Software, said; “Exactly as it does in England, Pearl Dental Software can now transmit claims to the Welsh NHS board. It is also fully integrated with Pearl Tablet to help create a paperless environment for the surgery, and provides remote access for business managers and multi-site operations.”
Automating the waiting room
Patients can use the additional Pearl Tablet functions to enter details directly for FP17DC form, PR Form and Consent Forms. Patients can also complete or update Medical Histories and Patient Information, improving accuracy, reducing staff workloads and improving data privacy.
One of the early-adopters, Zoe Clarke, co-owner of Cowbridge, Blackwood & Bridgend Dental Surgery, said; “Pearl makes life easier for every member of the team. The NHS Wales reporting features make it even more useful to us, increasing report accuracy and saving us hours of paper work each week! ”
Pearl Dental Software NHS Edition is a full-function practice management system with an enhanced user interface and support for cloud-computing. It is now available for evaluation and purchase by independent private & NHS dentists and chains of all sizes.
Existing users of earlier Pearl software products can upgrade for free. Practices interested in evaluating Pearl Dental Software can book a demo by calling 0116 275 9995.
