iPads® certainly have the world abuzz. People love them and I have to admit, I’m not sure what I would do without mine. I’m happy to let you know that you can use your iPad to run your Eaglesoft software.
All you need to do is purchase the iTap RDP app at a cost of $11.99 and then contact the PTC support staff to set you up. With iTap RDP, you remotely control another computer in your office that is running Eaglesoft. You will then have full access to Eaglesoft via an iPad. It’s as simple as that.
Here are a few of my recommendations on how to use Eaglesoft on the iPad:
- Fast check-in – let your patients check themselves in on the iPad
- Viewing images/treatment plans chairside
- Informed consent/medical history chairside
- Use outside the office for looking up patients, etc.
While iPads are amazing, they cannot replace your operatory computers. They do not have the ability to capture digital images or connect any USB device. As the technology continues to advance, we will make sure to keep you informed of how Eaglesoft on the iPad can help you run your practice even more efficiently.
