Florida Dentist Launches Revolutionary Solution to National Dental Specialist/Patient Care Dilemma
Date:7/28/2008

National Study Reveals Gaps in Dental Patient Care and Unclaimed Revenues

From Lost, Unfulfilled Referrals to Specialists Streamlined Referral System Provides Solution by Sending, Receiving and

Tracking Referrals Online

DELTONA, Fla., July 28 /PRNewswire/ -- Created by a dentist for the dental community, PatientsCount.com ( http://www.PatientsCount.com ) is the newly-launched online referral system that provides the ideal solution to ensure optimized revenue for dental specialists and is an easy-to-use business tool for general dentists to improve patient care. With a faster and more reliable referral process, medical errors caused by illegible writing or incomplete information are reduced, and patients no longer have to experience delays in treatment plans.

Dr. Michael Zerivitz, D.D.S. and CEO and founder of PatientsCount.com, created the service in response to a recent survey conducted by Kelton Research, which revealed that lost, unfulfilled and discarded referrals adversely affect patients by leading to larger health concerns and result in lost revenue of up to $5,000 per patient for dental specialists.

"I know all too well from firsthand experience over the last 30 years that the current referral process is woefully inefficient," exclaimed Zerivitz. "The Kelton study served to confirm my desire to create and launch a system that effectively addressed this problem. PatientsCount.com is the solution that enables dentists and specialists to communicate and refer patients in a fast, easy and secure manner. As a result, specialists can track each referral in real time and personally follow up with patients to ensure they receive proper treatment."

PatientsCount.com is designed to solve the most common referral problems by allowing specialists to receive and track referrals and send progress updates in a way that is easy, fast and HIPAA compliant:

-- Dentists simply log on to the PatientsCount.com secure Web site, and when it's time to make a referral, just click on Instant Referral and choose the type of specialty office the patient needs.

-- The dentist then completes the Electronic Referral Slip containing the patient's name and contact information and selects the appropriate boxes for patient care. Digital x-rays, intra-oral photos and perio charting can be attached to the Electronic Referral Slip as well.

-- Finally, the referral is sent securely to the chosen specialist and a print version can be shared with the patient.

Once referred by a dentist, the patient's information is available on the PatientsCount.com system in a secure, easy-to-read and easy-to-access format. Specialists receive referrals instantly through the secure PatientsCount.com Web site and have access to digital x-rays, notes and instructions for patient care. Following the procedure, specialists can then immediately communicate with the referring dentist by using PatientsCount.com to send secure progress reports.
