Can we have more than one AR Admin in the settings?

  • There can be multiple AR Admins given access to the Payments Dashboard, if the office has set-up as an Admin for your Dental Intel account, they can also have access to the di.Payments dashboard.

How do patients get added to the dashboard? What is the process?

  • Based upon the workflow settings you establish in “Payments Settings.” When initially setting up, the practice determines what patients get pulled into the payments to request list on the dashboard, and these settings can be changed at any time.

  • Once “Done” is selected in the workflow, the system will perform a sync with your PMS to find the patients that meet the criteria, and every day we pull them into a queue labeled “Messages to Send”, for you to review.

  • Remember: If you change the parameters of the workflow, this will reset the list of the campaign labeled “Payments to Request.”
