Recognizing the desire to ensure that medical and dental patient health records are accessible to all health care providers, the Consistency of Care solution within axiUm allows dental schools to communicate patient health records to their medical counterparts, regardless of a medical school’s software. This integration provides faculty and students with a holistic view of a patient's health, ensuring best practice principles and the highest patient care standards.
By connecting axiUm's dental electronic health record (EHR) to a medical EHR through the Consistency of Care module, schools can consolidate patient record benefits without compromising academic dental software. Synchronization of patient data through an Application Programming Interface (API) ensures that patient information, medical conditions, and allergies are accurate, providing health care professionals with a single view of their patient's health records. By integrating dental software with EHRs, a higher standard of patient care can be achieved while delivering an improved patient experience and maintaining consistency of care — supporting better outcomes for patients.
