‘The digital revolution that is transforming every aspect of our world is also impacting dentistry and medicine in a multitude of ways, from electronic record-keeping and data analysis to new diagnostic tools, novel prevention methods and revolutionary treatment options. “The future is wide open with HMS (Intuitive),” says Emmott.’’

In this fast-paced world of medicine and dentistry, it is a daunting task to manage a standard health facility. A health management system (HMS) is a computer or web based system that facilitates managing the functioning of any medical set up.

TESTIMONY ON INTUITIVE HMS BY A FAST GROWING LAGOS BASED DENTAL SERVICE PROVIDER 2018
‘Previously we had a software which was cumbersome to use effectively, we faced critical issues like teaching staff members, tariff variation between various category of patients, application down time, manual billing and was not user friendly because of its lack of flexibility. We were looking for a HMS for our Dental facility that would balance the profession and management of our business efficiently. We had requested Intuitive HMS for demo, the demo was conducted and all features explained to us convincingly. There was facility tour where Intuitive HMS had arranged for a thorough demo. There was pre-implementation visit. The implementation executive was knowledgeable and the migration from old cumbersome to new simple software was smooth. We were able to tweak the software to our taste having implemented some few requirements specific to our clinic. The implementation team and remote team were very friendly and willing with remarkable customer support. Overall, we are satisfied with the Intuitive HMS and look forward to long opportunities for accomplishment with their company’

Patient called to book appointment, the front desk officer checked the daily patients’ list and doctor’s appointment scheduler and then confirmed the appointment. The doctor, upon checking the daily patients’ list, prepared for patient’s arrival. At the set time, patient came in; registered electronically and waited to be called in. While waiting at the reception she received a message on her phone saying “Welcome to Dental Channel Clinic, Dr. Banjo O.F will be attending to your dental needs shortly” she smiled and felt relaxed.
Shortly, the patient was called in. She was seated on the chair and the doctor took history and examined her. She was sent for full mouth x-ray in the x-ray room before she came back to the surgery, the doctor entered the patient’s details on the system and uploaded her x-ray image before she was called in. Patient came in, evaluation session ended, got treated and next appointment date decided upon, got discharged.
She smiled to the reception and appended her signature where necessary.
As she stepped out, she received another message saying “thanks for coming to Dental Channel clinic, sure you had a wow experience. We care about your smile.
