Technical Details

Because of the AudaxCeph bridge, the following occurs:

Patient Status: Every patient opened in AudaxCeph will have a patient status of active, even if a different patient status (e.g., deceased, inactive) has been selected on the Edit Patient Information window in Open Dental.

Gender: There are four gender selections in Open Dental (male, female, other, unknown) and only two in AudaxCeph (male, female). All unknown or other genders in Open Dental are translated to a male gender in AudaxCeph.

How the bridge works: When the bridge is enabled, Open Dental creates an update.xml file in the installation folder which AudaxCeph will read from.
