Service provides a portal for patients.

Sikka Software has launched beta service.

Studies have indicated that having a patient portal allows you to have a 24x7 front desk, and saves a team more than $2,800 a month in time and resources spent to support patient questions.

PatientHomePage gives patients one easy place to:

* see their statements, balances, and pay bills
* book appointments, set up text or alert preferences
* get messages, health history, and communicate with a dentist
* see their treatment plans, insurance payments, and balances
* view and print newsletters, send a dentist pictures, and securely view health history files
* get specials and discounts from a dentist
* give feedback, post on Facebook, Twitter, and tell their friends about a dentist

Practice Optimizer is now affordable

Since Sikka is compatible with 95% of practice-management systems, with one click of a button, a dentist can send an email to customers and let them know about PatientHomePage. When dentists click on the link, they are connected to a secure portal.

There is no need to make any credit card or payment information to get the service. On or about Aug. 1, 2011, will be enabled. if a dentist is in the first 1,000, her or she will receive an email with instructions and webinar training links to use this capability.
