The University of Bristol’s Dental School will move to a new site in central Bristol in 2023 after outgrowing its existing premises at the Dental Hospital where it has been based for many years.
With this move, the school aims to deliver enhancements to the quality of clinical education along with significant improvements to student, staff, and patient experience.
In 2022 the school set out to procure several IT systems to support the clinical practice elements of the school. After a detailed procurement process, the University of Bristol has awarded the Patient Management System contract to Titanium Solutions, with their product Salud.
Salud will manage interactions with patients digitally, including a full record of all interactions with the patient, treatment planning, booking of appointments and clinics, digital access to scans and images, patient letters and other documents associated with the patient or their treatment.
Over 700 users will use the system, which will be deployed via Azure, in a customer specific cloud instance managed by Titanium.
‘’We’re thrilled to be working with the team at University of Bristol on this exciting new chapter for the Dental School. With a world leading product, and our team’s extensive oral health education experience, we’ll deliver a modern and innovative solution to meet the evolving needs of the Dental School. “said Áine Hayes – Global Head of Marketing, Titanium Solutions.

The contract value is $299 million. Work has started on the project, with initial operating capability planned for November 2023 and final operating capability in 2025.

For the first time, an electronic health solution will be delivered into the deployed environment to record the delivery of healthcare by ADF clinicians from point of injury throughout the evacuation chain into rehabilitation and recovery. According to Leidos, this will ensure all relevant clinical information can be recorded and included in a member’s health record to facilitate appropriate, on-going care.
As Prime Systems Integrator, Leidos Australia will lead a team including:
• Alcidion Group, an Australian provider of intelligent informatics software for high-performance healthcare; • Ascention, an Australian provider of solutions for data, analytics and tactical planning;
• Coviu Global, an Australian provider of telehealth technology; • Fred IT Group, Australia’s largest dedicated IT solution provider to the pharmacy industry; • MediRecords, an Australian provider of intuitive, easy to use clinical practice management software; • Nous Group, an Australian specialist in leading and delivering transformational change; • Philips Electronics Australia, an Australian health technology company and provider of radiology solutions • Precision Medical, an Australian provider of software that monitors, traces and reports on medical assets; and • Titanium Solutions Australia, a New Zealand provider of oral health management software.

“Leidos Australia looks forward to working with Defence and our team of exceptional health sector partners to deliver this critical capability to the ADF,” Leidos Australia Chief Executive Paul Chase said. “Our team’s health expertise, as well as Leidos’ vast Defence experience, will deliver a modern, sovereign solution that will meet the evolving healthcare needs of the ADF.”

Emotion is key – building connections with patients
Practising emotional intelligence in a dental organisation is increasingly necessary. Today, patients are looking for professionals who can listen to their needs and present practical solutions to their problems. The patients want to be fully informed and equipped to make decisions about their treatment.
Here are some tips for building a good connection with your patients:
Listen carefully to what the patients mean, not just what they say.
Empathise with patients’ struggles.
Offer encouragement to your patient.
Encourage patient participation.
Presenting treatment options to the patient to choose from is an excellent way to build a trusting relationship.
In Salud, after the patient receives the dentist’s diagnosis, different treatment options can be presented to the patient.
Salud has easy drag and drop functionality for creating treatment plan options. The patient can clearly see the treatments within each plan, and the cost associated. Once your patient has considered their options, they can digitally sign consent for their preferred plan.
Dentists use a wide variety of strategies to have some emotional connection with the patient. Listening carefully to patients and understanding their necessities is essential; the use of technologies can assist your organisation in facilitating these connections.
The world is influenced by modern innovative technology. New benefit rich tools and devices are being released regularly and quickly become part of our everyday lives. With that digital technology has quickly become a necessity in every industry.
The healthcare industry has benefited from the advancement of sophisticated software solutions which allow the seamless flow of information and improved patient care worldwide.
The dental management system is the backbone of a patient’s oral health information. Dental organisations need an easy to use and effective solution that can make it easier to record and track patient’s information, diagnosis and treatment plans.
A dental system automatically consolidates the recorded patient information, streamlines the workflow and allows dental practitioners to make data driven decisions quickly.
A complete dental system needs to contain a wide range of functionality, such as: intuitive charting and treatment planning, seamless integrations with other technologies, and comprehensive dental management functionality to provide a totally digital workflow.
No two dental care providers are the same, and so neither should their dental software. Salud is a highly configurable solution, allowing each organisation to tailor it to their specific workflows.
