A few months ago I wrote about the problems with office to office communication in our field. You can find that post here. So, with the help of my Periodontist I began using Basecamp from http://www.37signals.com which I wrote about here.
We have been testing this setup for collaboration between my office and our periodontists office for 2 1/2 months. I am hooked, it is by far the simplest way to keep track of cases, create a full and complete diagnosis and begin treatment. The Docs know what is going on, the appropriate team members know what’s going on and the patients know what’s going on. What I really like is that it works just like any regular internet application, no real bells and whistles, just simple communication that everybody is hooked into. It works from Macs, PC’s, iPhones and Blackberry’s. If are interested in how this works or the details, leave a comment below or find me on twitter @dougsandquist.
