eDossea Endorsed by Delta Dental of Iowa
as a Value-Added Service
JOHNSTON, Iowa (May 7 , 2012) – Delta Dental of Iowa has announced that eDossea is a preferred vendor through its Value-Added Services program for participating network dentists. As the state’s largest dental insurance carrier, Delta Dental maintains a Value-Added Services program that provides discounts on business products and services for network providers.
The Des Moines-based, technology startup, eDossea has created a platform to streamline referred patient records online between general dentists and dental specialists. Launched in 2011, the cloud-based service improves efficiencies when transferring and sharing electronic files between dental offices.
Many dental offices have already seen reduced costs and time savings over traditional transfer methods. Acceptance by the dental community has been outstanding as the service requires no software to download and minimal staff training.
“Delta Dental is proud to endorse eDossea as a Value-Added Services partner and provide this new technology for dental offices to reduce costs, save time and improve efficiencies,” said Dr. Ed Schooley, DDS, dental director for Delta Dental of Iowa.
By using eDossea, dental offices are able to transfer X-ray images and additional files, while protecting image quality, tracking referred records and hosting a social environment of communication between providers. eDossea brings a higher level of online security to the dental community and supports the transition towards a paperless office environment.
Through this endorsement, providers in Delta Dental’s network will have access to a discount on eDossea’s monthly service fee with no set-up costs.
