Patient Images on the Internet: A Platform for the Communication Between Orthodontic Clinics

Beckmann-van der Ven, G. / Höne, F.-J.

Pages: 63 - 67

These tools can now be shared with other medical professionals (eg, oral surgeon, dentist and orthodontist) involved in the treatment of a particular patient via the internet. This program creates better communication among the professionals concerned. The records of the patient are protected by a user name and a password. They make it possible for the patient to have access to his/her personal records at any time to see the progress of his/her treatment.
