IoT Device Management Cloud native solution


Our collaboration with EMS in developing the GetConnected Device Manager showcases our expertise in harnessing cutting-edge technologies. The project, pivotal for EMS's Guided Biofilm Therapy (GBT) processes, utilised .NET MAUI Blazor Hybrid, Azure DevOps, and a suite of Azure Services.

What is Guided Biofilm Therapy?

Guided Biofilm Therapy (GBT) is a modern, evidence-based approach to dental care, focusing on the removal of dental biofilm and prevention of oral diseases through patient education, assessment, and treatment. GBT involves a series of steps tailored to each patient’s needs, including diagnostics, disclosing, motivation, air polishing, ultrasonic scaling, and check-ups. This method is less invasive and more comfortable for the patient compared to traditional scaling and root planning techniques.

Benefits of Custom Software Solutions for Guided Biofilm Therapy

1. Streamlined Patient Management

Custom software can streamline the entire GBT process, from appointment scheduling to patient education and treatment planning. This ensures efficient workflow management within dental practices, allowing dental professionals to focus more on patient care rather than administrative tasks.

2. Enhanced Patient Education and Engagement

Interactive educational tools and visual aids integrated into the software can significantly enhance patient understanding and motivation regarding oral health. Custom software can provide personalized feedback, educational content, and progress tracking to encourage patient compliance with recommended home care practices.

3. Optimized Treatment Planning

Custom software can assist in creating individualized treatment plans based on comprehensive patient assessments, including medical history, risk factors, and specific biofilm challenges. Advanced algorithms can recommend the most effective treatment protocols, optimizing patient outcomes.

4. Improved Treatment Outcomes Monitoring

With custom software, dental professionals can easily track and record the progress of each treatment, monitor outcomes, and adjust treatment plans as necessary. This data-driven approach ensures that patients receive the most effective care tailored to their needs.

5. Integration with Dental Practice Systems

Custom solutions can be designed to integrate seamlessly with existing dental practice management systems, including electronic health records (EHRs), billing, and scheduling. This integration facilitates a holistic approach to patient management, enhancing operational efficiency.

6. Advanced Data Security

Given the sensitive nature of patient data, custom software can offer robust security features tailored to comply with healthcare regulations such as HIPAA. This includes secure data storage, encrypted communications, and access controls to protect patient privacy.

How It Benefits All Stakeholders

  • Dental Professionals benefit from a streamlined workflow, allowing for more efficient patient management, reduced administrative burdens, and a focus on delivering high-quality care. The ability to customize treatment plans and monitor progress enhances the efficacy of GBT.
  • Patients experience more engaging and less invasive treatments, with a greater understanding of their oral health needs and progress. This leads to improved satisfaction and outcomes due to personalized care and education.
  • Dental Practices can achieve operational efficiencies through integrated patient management, leading to better resource allocation and potentially higher patient throughput. The ability to offer cutting-edge GBT services can also differentiate a practice in a competitive market.
  • Dental Researchers and Educators gain access to aggregated, anonymized data on treatment outcomes and patient compliance, which can be invaluable for research and the development of new treatment protocols or educational programs.
