BHA Limited has announced a new agreement with MEDiVision Systems Ltd, which means the company will integrate MEDiVision’s patient visualisation tools into the Pearl Dental Software practice management system, and resell MEDiVision’s chairside and waiting room systems as extensions to Pearl.
The key chair side visualisation function is delivered by MEDiVision CiC Connect. It provides visualisations of procedures that help dentists and nurses better explain their treatment recommendations. The treatments are displayed as 3-D animations showing the problem, the treatment and the expected results. By helping patients understand their proposed treatment CiC increases case acceptance. CiC also increases efficiency by minimising the time it takes to explain conditions and treatments to patients. In addition, patients can view the treatment videos at home on their personal device allowing the ‘sales’ cycle to continue once the patient had left the practice.

In areas with a multi-cultural patient base, CiC helps overcome language barriers by using imagery which patients can easily understand. It also comes with multiple language options.
BHA has also agreed to resell MEDiVision’s waiting room TV solution, designed to provide marketing and educational content to patients. Information is easily managed and displayed in a continuous loop to help make waiting room time feel more bearable for patients, while also demonstrating more profitable services and sundries that patients may be interested in buying.
Ben Baker, MD of BHA Software, said; “The introduction of Pearl Tablet has helped the staff side of managing waiting room time. However, I think MEDiVision CiC is going to be really important to many of our clients, particularly those in Periodontics and Orthodontics where treatments are hard to explain, but informed consent is essential.”
Nick Russon, director at MEDiVision Systems Limited said; “BHA has put a lot of effort into making Pearl a very complete system. But it’s ‘behind the scenes’ from a patient perspective. MEDiVision brings a new dimension to a practice, linking excellent practice management software to what the patient sees. Providing better and more consistent marketing and educational information in the waiting room and on the website, combined with accurately animated demonstrations of proposed treatments considerably improves the patient experience. And the use of CiC in discussions about treatment saves time in obtaining informed consent whilst increasing plan acceptance and ultimately practice profits.”
