Last week Ortho2 released Edge Mobile, a new addition to the Edge management, imaging, and communication platform that provides smartphone and tablet access to Edge practice data. It's free and immediately availablefor all Edge clients with Android and iOS devices. Simply search for "Ortho2" in the Android Play or Apple App store and install Edge Mobile.
Setting up Edge Mobile is pretty quick. Follow these four steps and you'll be up and running in no time.
Download the Edge Mobile app on your mobile device. Search for Ortho2 in either the Play Store or App Store
Enter your Customer Identifier in Edge Mobile settings. To find this in Edge, click on the Edge button, hover over Help, then click About. We recommend using copy and paste to e-mail the Customer Identifier to an account your device can access. Then copy it again on your device and paste it into settings.
Exit Edge Mobile settings by clicking the back button on the top left corner.
Login with your Edge operator e-mail and password. Your Edge operator record must have this e-mail address associated with it, and you must use a password that is not blank.
Edge Mobile gives you access to patient and professional information, your schedule and appointments, Stacks, and your user-defined Edge Dashboard charts. Plus you can call, text, or e-mail a patient, responsible party, or professional with one touch from within Edge Mobile.
Edge Mobile beta tester Dr. Keith Kohrs, an Edge user from Aurora, CO says, "The new Edge mobile app is an amazing extension of the cloud‐based platform. It gives me immediate and up‐to‐the‐minute access to the treatment chart information and images I need to handle calls from patients and referring doctors when I’m out of the office. The Stacks feature allows me to set up a daily list of patients for my evening care calls and make those calls by just tapping the patients’ information. Plus, I can quickly browse a list of mutual patients as I’m walking into a lunch with a referring doctor. In just a short time, Edge Mobile has become one of my favorite features of the Edge practice management system."
