Eaglesoft Software


 

Patterson Dental’s Eaglesoft software is a Meaningful Use and ONC-ATCB certified on-premise dental office practice management system. Well suited for practices of all sizes, it includes a clinical chart, patient scheduling and billing/accounting applications, as well as periodontal templates.

Eaglesoft’s patient scheduling application gives users the ability to block off different segments of time, from five to 60 minutes, depending on the necessary length of the appointment. Double booked appointments are displayed side-by-side so they can be identified before a problem arises.

The treatment planning module lets users present treatment plans to patients and collect consent forms with a digital signature feature. It also provides financial information so patients can make an informed decision based on insurance coverage estimates.

This software also includes a document manager, SmartDoc, which enables users to store and manage documents that have been imported from paper charting systems.

Pros

It is easy to deal with. When I bought my practice, it was already going and so it was easy to transition.

Cons

When new versions are available, it will take 8 hours of shutting the office down to get it updated.

Eaglesoft has much better graphics than Dentrix and it looks better to the naked eye

Pros

I used Patterson Eaglesoft in college and it was so easy to learn and manipulate. It had easy scheduling and the graphics were great!

Cons

I do not think Eaglesoft is as company friendly because I do not hear of many dental offices that use it. We are a group practice and we use Dentrix Enterprise

Ease-of-use

Functionality

Customer Support

Value for Money

I'd like to see new innovation that is easy to install and makes use easier. The problem is that we paid the required amount for it and now all these years later its about the same. And I dont want to pay more for a different software.

Pros

It is reliable. It's been around forever and will probably always be around and you know what your getting. It starts every time and does what it needs to do.

Cons

The software takes some time to get use to. With our new dental assistants that come in there is a learning curve. Not very intuitive.

It is intuitive to use. It provides a place for perio charting, images, charting, notes. Overall it is a a practice management software.

Cons

It locks if someone else has the chart open. Support time waits can sometimes be 30-45 minutes. It doesn’t integrate with Dexis products. Each computer has to be changed individually to show the same charting. No pop up note features in auto notes.

We wish we went with Dentrix.

Pros

Robust system with functionality that covers everything necessary in a dental office.
No ongoing fee for basic system
Interfaces with key third party platforms like SolutionReach.

Cons

The system user interface is very backwards. '90s "Clinton era" style user interface.
Every additional service comes at an additional charge. You want to add electronic billing? Extra charge. Want to add automated appointment verification? Additional charge.
Customer service is extremely onerous to contact and to work with.

To find a way that several locations can be linked so that we do not have to use an RDP access. This is not a secure and efficient way for us to do this.

It is easy to learn so we can train staff fairly quickly on the software. It is fairly easy to troubleshoot as well.

Cons

End of day reports are not always accurate when we print them. There are to many ways to do things.

Worst experience. I am considering changing software as I can never get help

Value for Money

This program works in the front but is so complicated to move around in the clinical section. Charting is impossible. To take intraoral pictures is a joke. 3-4 button pushes for each picture you take. Unable to write referral letters. Takes longer to do the computer than just using the old fashioned pen and paper. I would not and am not recommending this program to any new dentists.
On the flip side I am a small practice. This program has just way to much. Maybe it is better for a larger practice where you actually have the staff to learn it on their own. Eagle soft help is lousy.

Pros

Notes can be made quicker by setting up templates. Turns on every morning. Actually I have a difficult time finding any pros

Cons

Too complicated to get simple things done. Poor customer support when it came to setting up the program. I am still waiting on help from the representative. Charting stinks. Unable to use it. Do not advise using the Schick system either. Poor quality pictures compared to the major competitor. I could go forever listing the programs poor qualities. NOT USER FRIENDLY AT ALL

Challenged by Eaglesoft

Ease-of-use

Functionality

Product Quality

Customer Support

Eaglesoft has been in our office for approximately 6 years.
It has a lot of whistles and bells but is not easily navigated in my opinion.

Pros

Images are very nice. The customer service is really good once you get them.
You get the idea that every possibility has been covered (there's a downside to negotiability).

Cons

Expanded drop down choices are available, but not in the most helpful areas often requiring a close out and search.
Hitting the "return" button in, for instance, the notes on the treatment plan cause the window to close rather than advance a line- the whole notes section must be negotiated using the up and down buttons. It is likely ideal for a data entry person, but for dental team members on the go looking up items and entering notes it is cumbersome.

Advice to Others

Basically, it's very Deep, but not Intuitive. Consider something cloud based.

Very customizable but sometimes even that isn't for the best. I am able to assign colors to each provider and employee but I cannot get the software to stop prompting us to "change to prescription paper" or "change to regular paper" when printing. Too many auto pop-up all over the software that are not able to be turned off.

Likes Least

Treatment planning is a nightmare. We're a big office and present major treatment needs. It is not uncommon for our treatment plans to include 20+ services and this software does not make that easy. Very tedious to enter and prioritize. The software will not auto correct posterior and anterior fillings based off the tooth #. Also, there is no reason I would not want to write clinical notes and treatment plan at the same time, it doesn't make since for those features to be in 2 different places within the software.
Also, adding patient family members has to be done very delicately, especially when they have Insurance.

Recommendations

Look elsewhere. I used Dentrix for 10 years before making the switch to eaglesoft and I've regretting every day of it.

Couldn't run the office without it! Scheduler, practice management, etc. A must have!

Pros

Makes dental office front office a breeze, and is easy to work with for back office as well. Plays well with other software companies that can be integrated into the system to make other aspects simplified. (We integrated Solution Reach, it was seamless). Customer support is top notch! Only once had an issue that was not able to be immediately addressed, and taken care of

Cons

The icons they use for the different charting aspects are a bit odd. they have an area to store documents in a patients chart, called smart doc, and their icon is a brain on a piece of paper. Some don't make sense, but if you hover over it with the mouse, it will pop up what it is.
The other is there is SO much to remember, it's amazing how much they have in there! Not simple to disable some "upgrades" that I don't care for.

The ease of use and flow of software are the primary pro's for Eaglesoft. It seems to transition well with the digital x-rays software.

The software has been slow with quality updates due to it becoming free for dental offices. Dentrix seems to be surpassing eaglesoft in updates.

Eaglesoft is a strong tool, but it has a steep learning curve since its used for everything in a dental practice. It is a powerful tool, and does things well, but its not easy. Licenses are particularly expensive as well.

Pros

It's a powerful, all in one tool, that does most things well. Imaging and health records are excellent.

Cons

Insurance billing is a bit painful, and it's difficult to customize in depth.

EagleSoft is incredibly powerful especially in the clinical area and the systems that integrate with patient billing and communication. Its user friendly and they have and endless library of on-demand training for every little thing you could imagine.
The insurance policy profile is seriously lacking. You can enter the basic coverage of a plan, but all plans have exceptions and there is no way to allow for those. Support is great, they are available via email, live chat, telephone, and virtual service call.

Our office has been using Eaglesoft since 2003, so I do speak with experience.

The Pros:
The customer Service is usually pretty good. But it is over the phone, or if you are able to get on the internet, they will do many things that way. Most of our problems have been fixed this way.

Lots of features. I mean Lots. Many of them we don't use, but they are available. You can send emails, and texts, have patients check in on a dedicated monitor, patient education videos, digital integration is smooth, Charting, billing, etc-it's all there.

Cons:

They have lots of features, but most of them have additional costs. Online claims- charge, text/email-charge, letter program-charge, automatic billing-charge. They offer ongoing support, but you are being charged for that each month too. Just to have updates, and the basic program is about $200 monthly.

There are still gaps in the basics-for example, you should be able to enter waiting period information-can't, enter if sealants are basic or preventative-can't, how many cleanings are allowed per year and if it's 2/year or every 6 months and alert you if you are scheduling something not covered-doesn't. There are a couple of other things like this, still not there.

There are always glitches when a new update comes out. I always wait several months, cuz they always have to send an updated version out later.
