Both Dentrix Ascend Detect AI and Dentrix Ascend Voice offer powerful tools to help dental professionals improve case acceptance and elevate patient care through accurate diagnoses. Dentrix Ascend Detect AI is an AI-enabled X-ray analysis tool that provides real-time chairside insights to dentists and hygienists, and is powered by VideaHealth’s FDA-cleared computer-assisted detection (CADe) device. With this tool embedded directly into Dentrix, and now Dentrix Ascend, oral health professionals can seamlessly use AI in dental practices within their existing workflows. The software automatically analyzes and annotates images, enabling dental professionals to more quickly evaluate x-rays and provide more effective treatment recommendations to patients. As a result, dentists and hygienists can provide greater transparency to patients, improve trust and case acceptance, and elevate patient care.

Dentrix Ascend Voice has advanced AI technology that improves speed and efficiency for dentists and hygienists when completing Perio exams and clinical notes. By letting hygienists easily record results verbally, it can improve Perio exam productivity, treatment acceptance, and patient referrals, helping to improve profitability. For dentists and hygienists, Dentrix Ascend Voice saves valuable time by simplifying their data entry.

Caregility Unveils Multiple AI-Enhanced Hybrid Care Solutions that Harness the Power of Caregility Cloud™ Telehealth Platform

Businesswire | April 19, 2023

Caregility, an enterprise telehealth leader dedicated to connecting care for patients and clinicians everywhere, today announced a new portfolio of AI-enhanced hybrid care solutions built on Caregility Cloud™, its Best in KLAS virtual care platform (non-EMR). The enhancements reduce technology investment risks for hospitals and health systems by offering the flexibility to choose those health AI applications that are the best fit for their environment and needs without creating more IT silos that could hamper workflow and congest networks. Interest in hybrid care models that blend in-person care with virtual encounters has increased significantly as health systems look to optimize patient care delivery amid workforce shortages. Caregility Cloud™ is a robust telehealth foundation that helps modernize care delivery with advanced video and audio streaming technologies. Transformative clinical programs built on the platform include virtual nursing, tele-ICU, continuous patient observation, and virtual visits. The AI enhancements announced today unlock even more value for overburdened caregivers and administrative teams struggling to keep up with rising costs and increased demand. A computer vision application analyzes live video streams of patients and their environment to detect movement and changes that could lead to adverse events such as falls or self-harm. A contactless monitoring system continuously captures patient vital signs, detecting variations in heart rate, breathing patterns, and movement that could be indicative of physiological events like awakening from sleep or an induced coma. An ambient clinical intelligence algorithm generates documentation from live clinician and patient conversations for the patient’s electronic health record. “Integrating artificial intelligence technologies with our leading virtual care platform advances care delivery and empowers the clinicians we serve to focus on patient care,” states Mike Brandofino, President and COO at Caregility. “AI development in healthcare is in the beginning stages. Our customers are asking us for options that they can implement now but won’t box them into an investment that might quickly become obsolete. By harnessing the power of Caregility Cloud™ as the platform of choice, we provide the resilient virtual care infrastructure and endpoints while our business partners focus on AI advancement.” “Combining virtual care solutions and AI technology yields tremendous potential to enhance and improve a variety of clinical workflows in acute care settings,” said Pete McLain, Chief Strategy Officer at Caregility. “Artificial intelligence has the potential to enhance and augment – not replace – care teams, helping them save time, capture more meaningful patient data, and support clinical decisions and interventions that lead to better care and improved patient outcomes.” The Caregility Cloud™ Ecosystem is a growing network of Caregility business partners brought together for better healthcare. The new AI innovators joining the ecosystem include Abridge, Ouva, and Xandar Kardian, who are committed to integrating their transformative AI-enhanced hybrid care solutions with the Best in KLAS virtual care platform. Abridge, a leader in the clinical adaptation of generative AI, introduces ambient clinical intelligence for Caregility Cloud™, capturing relevant medical documentation from clinical conversations with patients in near real-time. Ouva, a pioneer in the clinical application of computer vision, brings AI-powered continuous patient and patient room observation to Caregility Cloud™ adopters, tracking patient and visitor movement to alert care teams to potential patient safety concerns such as falls, elopement, or self-harm. The Ouva solution also helps optimize workforce efficiency, with bedside shift planning and bed turnover processes. Xandar Kardian, an innovator in radar-based contactless patient monitoring, adds continuous vital sign and motion capture to Caregility Cloud™, delivering real-time data on patients’ resting heart rate, respiratory rate, and motion patterns to remote clinical teams to assess trends and meaningful changes in patient conditions. The Caregility Cloud™ virtual care platform also leverages operational AI to remotely monitor telehealth endpoint systems and initiate self-healing commands if equipment is not performing properly, enabling health systems to manage large telehealth system deployments at scale and across multiple sites. About Caregility Caregility Corporation is dedicated to connecting patients and clinicians everywhere with its Caregility Cloud™ virtual care platform. Awarded the Best in KLAS Virtual Care Platform (non-EMR) in 2021, 2022, and 2023, Caregility Cloud™ powers a purpose-built ecosystem of enterprise telehealth solutions across the care continuum. Caregility provides secure, reliable, and HIPAA-compliant audio and video communication designed for any device and clinical workflow, in both acute and ambulatory settings.

Included Health Introduces New, Virtual-to-Home, Care Model

Businesswire | May 17, 2023

Included Health, a new kind of healthcare company delivering integrated care and navigation for millions of people nationwide, today announced it will introduce a unique, virtual-to-in-home, care model through a partnership with DispatchHealth, one of the largest providers of high acuity in-home care for complex patients. Leading with an innovative model to combat fragmentation and advance care delivery, Included Health and DispatchHealth will supplement care that begins online with on-demand, in-home support. This augmented offering will activate the home as a setting to treat everything from common to complex injuries, illnesses and disease, and offers great promise when it comes to reducing unnecessary emergency department visits and better managing interventions for patients with chronic conditions. “Connecting virtual-first care to a network of experts who can bring urgent medical services into the home is about serving people’s preferences and needs first, while also better managing the journey and cost of healthcare overall,” said Dr. Ami Parekh, chief health officer for Included Health. “Working with DispatchHealth is an incredible extension to our service, one that will remove the friction, travel and stress associated with visiting a resource-strained emergency room or urgent care center and allow our members to be treated and recover in an often preferred setting – the home.” Offered as part of an enriched virtual primary care solution and to support members living with chronic, highly complex, and high acuity needs, Included Health’s virtual primary care clinicians and care team will be able to coordinate with DispatchHealth’s team of nurse practitioners, physician assistants, and emergency-trained medical technicians. In-home clinical services will range from virtual visit augmentation to include things like diagnostics and CLIA-certified lab, to higher acuity and acute needs. This service expansion will enrich care for employees and members of Included Health partners such as health plans and employers. “As an emergency room physician with more than two decades of experience at the bedside, I saw first-hand that much of the care in an emergency department could be treated just as effectively in an individual’s home and, in many instances, the added context of the social and environmental picture in the home could improve the precision of the care plan. With advancements in technology, high acuity care can be delivered in the home at a much lower cost with an enhanced care experience and improved outcomes. We are excited to add our high acuity, in-home capabilities to the capabilities of Included Health, a company that continues to push what’s possible with integrated healthcare,” said chief executive officer and co-founder of DispatchHealth, Dr. Mark Prather. About Included Health Included Health is a new kind of healthcare company. We combine people and technology to guide and deliver care differently. Working with employers and health plans nationwide, we provide millions of people with a healthcare experience that is more personalized, accessible, equitable, affordable, and cohesive. With us, it’s all included; care and support online, around the corner, and in the home for everyday and urgent needs including primary, speciality, and behavioral healthcare.
