Technical Details

This bridge is the same as the RayMage bridge, but with birthdate and sex added to the command line arguments.

/PATID "123456" /NAME "John" /SURNAME "Smith" / BDATE "dd,MM,yyyy" / SEX "M"

The name and surname arguments will be the patient's first and last name with all spaces and quotes removed from them. If the patient ID already exists, then the corresponding patient folder is opened.

If the patient ID does not exists, then a new patient folder is created and opened. When a patient ID already exists and the patient name passed in does not match (for example when a patient name is updated), then a message box will display asking the user if they want to change the patient name and the patient folder corresponding to the existing ID is opened.

Note: We have received reports of IRYS version 8.0 not working well with Open Dental.
