This feature is an absolute must! The data is already stored in Dentrix somewhere, so I know it wouldn't be that difficult to implement a way to pull the information in a CSV format to export to excel! All the other major softwares do this as far as I know, especially Open Dental!
Is this a joke? Why is this option not available?
WHY are we still waiting on this improvement...it seems as if we dump a lot of data into dentrix, but dentrix does not want to easily give it up!!!
Any good software system gives you the option to save in other formats for easy editing. This is an easy addition and should have been done long ago, and an update would be nice.
Any update on when this will be a "thing"..... getting reports to our accountant is such a hassle when I can't get the information converted to a standard Excell spreadsheet!
Or at least, allow the files to be exported to CSV format.
My take on the electronic ins claim submission. We have many folks with tiny primary ins payments and most of the $ from ins coming from the 2nd ins. In order to do a e claim for the sec, we would have to store the prime in the doc center and then can not be deleated from the doc center at a future date. Even if we could remove them from the doc center, we do not want to take the time to do that or be required to do it at a latter date. This is not what we want to do. we do store all claims in a folder on our server, but have the right and thought of either storing them in off line drives forever or trashing them with one click of deleating a yearly folder. we do not want to keep them on our active database to pay for storage on useless info for years later with no easy way of trashing them. Since the requirement is to put these primary claims in the doc center, we do paper claims for the 2nd ins. There should be a way to use a file to add as an attachment to an eclaim with out it being in the doc center. the file name and location should be enough for dentrix to grab the content and send it with the claim.
We are currently investigating an alternative to the Dentrix eclaims due to our overwelming number of paper claims we are required to make due to this requirement by Dentrix.
This requirement is costing us a lot.
Dentrix should have implemented this a long time ago on its own accord. This is just a basic function in today's world. It would greatly enhance the value of the software and make it more marketable.
could not make the vote count update, but I vote 10000 yes votes
I have long wanted data from dentrix to be able to be exported. I have done work arounds and data entry far too long. Some commentors say they have figured out ways to get data out. I would like to see a place where these work arounds are documented, so I could use them. As a former computer programmer, I find the inability to get data out very frustrating.
This is a GREAT idea and very long overdue.
