axiUm Dental Software


axiUm Dental is a HIPAA-compliant, ONC-ATCB certified system that includes electronic health record (EHR), billing and practice management applications. It was designed to address the needs of educational institutions, such as dental hygiene schools and dental organizations with multiple locations. It also includes an orthodontics and periodontics module, with applications tailored towards these specialty practices.

This product is an on-premise system that includes a patient portal and a faculty portal for teachers which shows class rosters and student procedure information. Faculty members are able to record grades and course evaluations to track student progress throughout the program.

axiUm’s practice management application allows users to attach patient photos to charts, view appointments and referrals and keep track of patient communication.

The transactions module connects to a patient’s health record to create a ledger of their account. Within this module, billing arrangements can be made and various insurance provider information can be entered.

The worst user interface ever devised

My university has committed itself to this program like a battered woman defending her abusive husband. Its really really really bad and they still have us do everything the old style because this is so inefficient. Yet the keep it around and tell us its hear to stay "because it says 'educational' on the package". I want to leave this university just because of this software.

Pros

This program allows your to track many documents electronically but at a much less efficient speed than paper. So if you like double or triple the work without increased benefits over literally any other method, including paper, this is for you.

Cons

This program must not have underwent any testing before being released. Its full of bugs that an amateur programmer could fix. The icons are counter intuitive and common functions are not where one would expect. Navigating it it frustrating, updates to mundane things such as treatment plan names will erase themselves without notice. The "edit" icon is not a pencil as would be 99% of every normal piece of user friendly software, its a blue check mark. The scratch pad is not universally accessible, for instance it will overlay most screens and remain accessible until you open the lab form. WHY? WHY DOESN'T IT ALWAYS WORK THE SAME? Start check doesn't have a button, you have to click on a non intuitive piece of the lower bar with your username. Trying to add dental findings goes into treatment history. Searching "all lists" doesn't show materials, you have to find the other list for that. Treatment plans not started are under Treatment HISTORY. Trying to get a class of students to follow along and search for these non intuitive icons and functions slows the entire class down, my school gives us all the assignments as homework because its too slow to do in class or the clinic (we literally do everything in paper then take it home and 10 minutes of paperwork is an hour of axium inputs). Simulation lab efficiency is severely reduced. It takes minimum 30 minutes and up to 1.5 hours just to get everything approved before we can EVEN BEGIN. This program is sold to stupid people who buy things that are labeled "for education" and no one in the professional world recognizes it or uses it. Its a waste of time, money, and patience without adding anything useful to education and anyone who commits to it should be aware they are severely reducing their efficiency, akin to shooting themselves in the foot.

Dental student who's school uses this program

I am required to use it. I will not purchase this program once I graduate.

Pros

Very versatile program that does everything we need it to do. I like that it can be modified to fit our specific needs.

Cons

This program is not very intuitive. It is confusing, and redundant. It takes a long time to learn, and likely you will never completely understand how to use it properly. It has many redundancies that waste time. Crashes weekly and needs to be reset.
