Hatfield, PA (January 27, 2014) DEXIS™, a brand of the KaVo Kerr Group, is pleased to release its newest version of the iPad app, DEXIS go 2.0. This update brings new levels of usability, aesthetics and image quality to the engaging app that allows dental professionals to communicate with patients using an iPad. DEXIS go 2.0 continues to provide a great visual patient experience around image presentation with added enhancements resulting in highly intuitive, useful imaging tools.
Utilizing an iPad, DEXIS go 2.0 provides these added benefits:
- Seamless connection with DEXIS Mac
- Faster image transfer
- Simplified interface leading to clearer navigation
- Expanded imaging browsing methods
- Privacy enhancements
- Extended connectivity for dental professionals who port their iPad to multiple practices
DEXIS go 2.0 still offers the features that provide a great visual patient experience around image presentation in support of clinical findings and treatment recommendations. DEXIS go functions as an imaging hub and displays all images within a patient record: intra- and extra-oral radiographs as well as intra- and extra-oral photographs. Its graphical environment looks beautiful, whether on the iPad’s retina display or on non-retina displays.
Even with these enhancements, DEXIS go 2.0 remains simple to use. A tap of the 3-way toggle changes the display from a new standard mouth view to the horizontal-scrolling historical mouth view. Another tap puts all images into a vertical-scrolling format sorted by date. As always, a quick tap of any thumbnail image displays that image in full screen mode. From that enlarged view, a single tap anywhere within the image area also displays a convenient "filmstrip" of all available patient images of the same type, so that the clinician can locate a desired thumbnail and tap it to see it in full size.
The new DEXIS 2.0 still retains the quad environment of the original app, while new animations and transitions enhance the user experience. “We focused on implementing the changes that improve usability. With quick taps on the iPad, clinicians can access the most recent image or locate a specific historical image quickly,” states John Steck, Vice President of Product Management for DEXIS. “With credential management, it is secure for purposes of HIPAA in the dental environment, but with the convenience, familiarity and flair that people have come to expect from the iPad.”
To experience the new DEXIS go 2.0, download it for free from the Apple® iTunes® store; it includes a set of sample patients and images that can be used to try out the app even without having DEXIS Imaging Suite installed.
Indications for use: DEXIS go is an optional patient image presentation application for portable devices to be used with the DEXIS Software. It allows presentation of intra-oral and extra-oral images to the patients.
