December 11, 2020
Introducing Custom Aligner Fields
As more and more labs and practices introduce clear aligner solutions, we've been asked to enhance the EasyRx Aligner Form to support more customizations. With this release, we are introducing Custom Aligner Fields, which includes:
Add customer Aligner Fields to your aligner form, choosing from 5 custom field types:
Enable the Patient Images tab to upload up to 8 patient images to the aligner form

When the security setting is enabled on a user account, the user can only Save or Submit the Case for Review.
To enable the feature, to to Account Settings -- Account Options:

We released a number of "under the hood" changes in response to the feedback from Black Talon, our cybersecurity provider
October 12, 2020

August 7, 2020
New Feature: Bridge Creator Part
As more and more dental practices implement EasyRx, we've had requests to simplify creating a bridge prescription. We've added a new part Bridge Creator with special properties. On the Vertical icon page on the right side of the Prescription Workspace, you'll see a new icon "Bridge Creator.
Clicking the Bridge Creator icon enables "Bridge Creator Mode", which allows the teeth to include in the bridge.
There are three steps to create a bridge:
1. Click on the Bridge Creator Icon to go into Bridge Creator Mode
2. Define the teeth for the bridge by clicking on the first tooth and dragging the part to define the bridge
3. Add the parts to the bridge, like crown type, pontic, tc.
Optionally, labs can add lookup items to the Bridge Creator part. However, the most common usage is to use the Bridge Creator Part to define the bridge and add the parts to make up the bridge. For more information, watch this EasyVid on the Bridge Creator Part.
Added Drag and Drop To Favorites
We now support drag and drop from the Favorites list. Previously, the Favorites list required you to click on a favorite part to add to a prescription; drag and drop is hopefully more intuitive and allows you to place the part on the preferred tooth.
New Prescription Option: Set Fields as Read Only
You can set Patient First and Last Name and Date of Birth as Read Only. You would choose this option if you have practice management integration enabled, and only want this information updated via the practice management integration:

May 8, 20202
Date Needed can now be edited on cases submitted to uLab Systems Lab
As we continue to refine the EasyRx -- uLab Integration, we've enhanced the integration to now allow Date Needed to be edited on cases submitted to the uLab Systems Connected lab. This gives more flexibility in managing your uLab Cases.
EasyConnect Platform Released
We released the new EasyConnect platform. EasyConnect is our new open platform integration platform allowing EasyRx and Jenmar to support more and more integrations. The first integration will be EasyRx and Jenmar VisualDLP. You can check out a really cool integration video here
Connected Lab Profile Tweaks
We continue to refine and tweak the EasyRx Lab Profile setup page. Every EasyRx lab can (and should) set up their Lab Profile, which is displayed on the Connected Lab page for Practices. In this release, we fixed a bug editing carousel images and now support international phone numbers. You can read more about Lab Profiles in the Lab Profile KB article: https://support.easyrxortho.com/portal/kb/articles/lab-profile-feature-how-to-get-started
April 22, 2020
Practice Dashboard now defaults to Last 90 Days
During this unique time, prescription submission volume has declined significantly. We've changed the default date range on the practice dashboard from Last 30 Days to Last 90 Days. Once we return to "normal", we'll evaluate if switching back to Last 30 Days makes sense.
The Part RPE now supports a contoured lingual wire
April 21, 2020
Mark Cases as Unable to Deliver and On Hold
We've added two new tracking options to the "Delivered" Status: Unable to Deliver and On Hold, in addition to Delivered. These new statuses offer more flexibility when managing the dashboard
We've also added new filtering options:
[All] is now renamed to [Yes/No] and includes all statuses in Y or N Status
[UTD] shows cases in Unable to Deliver Status
[Hold] - shows cases in On-Hold Status
[All] - shows cases in all Statuses: Yes, No, Unable to Deliver, On-Hold
Also, when viewing a prescription the link is now renamed to Set Delivery Status
Mark cases as Received and Re-Sterilized
We've had feedback the management of inbound packages will change post COVID-19. To help, we've added a new option "Received and Re-sterilized", allowing you to track cases which cases have been received and which cases have been received and re-sterilized
After a case is marked "Received and Re-sterilized", the icon displays next to the Y on the dashboard and on the Prescription View Page:
Also, there is now an option "Set Received Status" on the View Prescription Page.
Maintain Occlusion in EasyRx 3D
There is a new option when saving files in EasyRx 3D "Preserve Occlusion". If selected, the file is saved in Occlusion
When models are saved in occlusion, the original bite registration is preserved so that the upper and lower STL files will maintain the occlusal relationship between the maxillary and mandibular scans. When models are not saved in occlusion, the occlusal plane will be adjusted to be parallel to the printer build plate.
Previously, when adding tags to prescriptions, the order the tags displayed on the prescription was fixed and did not correspond to the order the tags were set on the template or added to the prescription. For example, you could add tags say Tag A, Tag B, Tag C, Tag D, but when viewing the tags, the may display in order of Tag D, Tag A, Tag B, Tag C, there was no defined order. Now, tags display in the order added to the prescription. For example, if the tags are added Tag A, Tag B, Tag C, Tag D, the tags displays in this order on the prescription:
iTero Integration Enhancement: Mark Scans as Hidden
We've had requests to support marking iTero scans as hidden on the iTero Recent Scans list. Many practices use the list as a sort of "to do" list and allow want to see cases that need a prescription and hide the scans that don't.
There is now an option to "hide" scans, displayed next to each scan and a checkbox to show or hide hidden scans.
If "Show Hidden Scans on this page" is unchecked, scans marked as hidden are not displayed.
If "Show Hidden Scans on this page" is checked, hidden scans are displayed
Scans are not removed if marked as hidden; the scan is only hidden from view.
Scans marked as hidden can be set to "show" to show the scan if "Show Hidden Scans on this page" is not checked
One note on a nuance of the feature:
The iTero Recent Scans list displays 10 scans per page. The feature does not change the number of scans on each page; it is only showing or hiding scans on each page. Let's say on page 1 of your list of iTero Scans, one scan is marked as hidden and hide hidden scans is checked, only 9 scans will show on that page, but the next page will show 10 if none are marked as hidden on that page.
Part Organization and Refinement Work
We've added a few enhancements to Parts and Part categories:
Alternate Part Names now show in the Favorites View
Thumbnail images should now show for all parts when mousing over the image
Parts that have been marked as Inactive will no longer show in the parts list when creating a Rx
Copy Dental Parts. You can now copy Dental Parts, to create a similar-looking part with a different name
Copy part is available on Restorative parts like crowns, implants, bridges. Copying a part does the following:
Creates a new part with a new name

Activates the part;
Copies any lookups assigned to the copy from part to the new par
We've renamed Categories to Category Manager and re-organized this screen.

February 12, 2020
Tracker Lab Enhancement: Mark Cases as Received from Dashboard
For practices using a Tracker Lab (say to track Invisialign or SureSmile Tracker Labs), you can now mark Cases as Received from the Mark Cases as Shipped tab. Previously, this tab only supported marking cases as shipped.
We also added more data filtering options, allowing you to focus on specific cases:
All Cases returns All Cases not marked as Shipped or Received for the selected date range.
Needed returns all cases with a Needed By date for the selected date range
Submitted returns all cases with a Submitted Date for the selected date range
Not Shipped returns all cases not marked as shipped for the selected date range
Not Received returns all cases not marked as received for the selected date range
Download Multiple Files
We've had more and more practices ask to easily download multiple STL to support in-house aligner workflow. We've now added support to select and download multiple files from the patient file list.
Select the checkbox next to the files to download and choose [Download File(s)] or [Download Zip]. Download File(s) downloads each file individually. Download Zip bundles the selected files into a zipf file and downloads a zip file.
Files are downloaded to the default download folder set in your browser
There is a handy [Select All] Checkbox at the top of the list, which clicked, all files are selected:
If you plan to use the option to download multiple files, check your browser setting to turn off "prompt on each file". Here is a sample screen shot from Chrome
We fixed an issue reported earlier this week where Chrome Build 79 or higher impacted the behavior of our autosave feature. That being said, we always recommend saving work when possible.
We fixed a few filtering issues reported on Tracker / Partner Lab accounts like Invisalign, SureSmile, etc
We fixed a bug where the EasyRx Aligner Tracking System was not enabled on internal Tracker labs.
February 1, 2020
Production Location Enhancement
We continue to refine the Production Location Feature. In this release, we've added an automatic email notification when a Prescription is assigned to a Production Location. For users of the type of Clerical, there is an option: If checked, email alert when Production Location is set on prescription. When selected, when a prescription is assigned to a Production Location the user is assigned, a notification email is sent automatically to the email of the user

We're also assigning parts to the correct categories. You'll also notice all parts now have an EasyRx Universal Parts and Appliances Number assigned.
Dolphin Treatment Card Enhancements - Now Displays Saved Prescriptions
Many practices, as part of their regular prescription workflow, save prescriptions. We've now added an option to show Saved Prescriptions in the Dolphin Treatment Card. By default, this setting is enabled. Go to Account Settings -- 3rd Party Configurations to disable
Blank Rx Warning Message
Several labs requested we add a warning message if a "blank" prescription is submitted. We've now added a warning message if a blank prescription is submitted Blank is defined as no parts, appliances, templates or models selected on the prescription. You can still submit a blank prescription, you are only warned if you are doing so.
EasyRx Aligner Tracking System (EATS) Refinements
We continue to tweak the EasyRx Aligner Tracking System (EATS) based on user feedback:
You can set a number of trays on upper or lower 0, allowing say 7 trays on the upper to be configured and 0 on the lower
We renamed the label Trays Printed in Batch to Models Printed in Batch. Currently, printing of aligner trays is not possible; you print the model to make the trays.
We renamed the label "Trays Remaining" to "Trays Remaining to be Delivered"
We changed the formula on this field to Total Number of Trays - Trays Delivered in Batch. Previously, it was Total Number of Trays - Trays in Batch, which was not always accurate.
Bug fixes and minor enhancements
