Data for Informed Consent When You Need It
The goal is to present treatment plans with all the information required for informed consent on the patient’s first visit. Presently the challenge is incomplete data sent in real time or too much staff time spent on the telephone gathering facts
Turn-key Treatment Plans solves the problem this way.
- Automatically selects appointments covered by dental insurance
- Completely researches insurance benefits
- Electronic transmission sent to the practice database before the appointment
- Populates treatment plans with benefits by procedure
- Calculates patient’s out-of-pocket and balance remaining.

Doing the Research
Electronic Transaction Solutions collaborates with BRS Dental Software to provide Turn-key Treatment Plans. ETS is responsible for investigating the available benefits based on an electronic query from BRS software.
Role of practice management software
Dental Office Manager from BRS, searches through the Scheduler for appointments where the patient has dental insurance. DOM sends electronic queries to ETS that contain patient’s demographics and dental insurance plan information. The research product is returned to DOM via a web service that includes data and the (HTML) document –pictured above. The data is saved in the patient’s database records and the document is stored in the patient’s database folder. The provider is able to print the treatment plan when needed.
