I got a chance at the CDA convention to go to the Dentrix booth and see the wireless kiosk. Basically it is a computer that is placed in a black box and has a touch screen. The patient would enter the office and can then enter or update patient information into the kiosk in response to questions. The kiosk then syncs with e-Central and web syncs back the information to the Dentrix database. This isolates the kiosk from the office computer database.
They were having trouble with the wireless connection in the exhibit hall so I did not get a great demonstration. If you are interested please contact Dentrix for more information.
