Technical Details

ClioSoft uses the patient's name and patient number to identify selected patients. Open Dental sends the patients birthdate, chart number (if selected), patient number, and SSN to ClioSoft. If the patient does not exist, a new patient record is created. The bridge does not work if the patient's first name is blank in Open Dental or if the Additional Property Value is set to 1 and the chart number is blank in Open Dental.
