New Feature: Scanner Integration with MeditLink 
EasyRx now integrates with MeditLink, allowing scans captured with your Medit scanner to integrate with EasyRx. 

When this Medit Recent Scans list is refreshed (either manually, or automatically after ~4 hours) and displays your newest scans, you can attach scans to the Rx OR create the Rx based on the scan at the click-of-a-button.



Creating the Rx based on the scans will fill in the Patient's name for you and have the scan automatically attaching to the Rx without you having to do anything.

This screenshot below shows where to add your Medit credentials. You'll have to login to EasyRx with your admin email and password, and then go to Account Settings>3rd Party Integrations. This is how it should look once you enter in the credentials for your Medit account that Medit can provide to you.


For more information, please visit the Enabling and Using the Medit Link Integration Knowledge base article 

Enhancement: More Intuitive Color Chart Selections, showing Limited Selections for that Design
When a color chart is uploaded to allow you to select acrylic colors when filling out an Rx, the tile selections will now reflect what choices are available.

You'll need to put in a request for us to make these color combinations available, and by default multiple colors will not be able to be selected until this is added by to.

The notes section under that acrylic selection box can be used for instructions, or the Lab/In-House Lab can list acrylic selections out by category.



Enhancement: Additions of Patient Name/Practice Name Fields to Print Label


Bug Fix: Duplicate Tags within Templates Fix
Prior to this update, when Templates that contained the same Tag were applied to cases, that case would then display duplicates of that Tag. This should now be fixed.

Enhancement: Lab Logo added to Clinical Notification
Now when a Lab account sends a Clinical Notification to one of their Practices, the Lab's logo should display within that Clinical Notification.

Enhancement: Case Status Abbreviation Changed to "CK" for Checked-In and "CP" for Completed




New Part: Habit Crib separated from Appliance

  2. All Other Templates: This section shows all available lab templates.  These templates also show in the templates on the left under Templates. 
Also, to make it easier to add a template to a prescription, you can now click on the template name to add the template.

When enabled the Aligner Batch Deliver Treatment Cared Entry displays



Time Zone Fixes

We fixed a few issues with our recent Time Zone changes, causing dates/times to display incorrectly if the time zone was other than Eastern Time Zone. We also fixed an issue with our 3D Printer integrations caused by these Time Zone changes. 

Big fixe and minor tweaks:
We fixed a formatting issue on the Template Screen


  1. We fixed an issue with the EasyRx Aligner Tracking Sytem where data entered on the Lower would revert to the same information entered on the Upper.

May 14 - June 1
From May 14 to June 1, we upgraded a number of our internal technologies to keep our infrastructure current, Recent upgrades include PHP, MySQL and computer services we're using at Amazon AWS.  These upgrades, although not visible in the UX as new enhancements or features are necessary and critical to the technical health of the application long term.  Now that we've finished these upgrades, we can get back to enhancing EasyRx with additional features, refinements and bug fixes.

Part Changes

We modified the RPE to allow movement of the bands, without the supporting wire moving with the band.





We added mobility to the 7s (back springs) on the Hilgers Pendulum




We added a new part option "Add Bend" to the Pendulum Spring



We added additional interproximal mobility between 1-7 U/L to the  Distal Finger Spring with option to remove either side.

April 15, 2021

Enhancement: Time Zone Support, Practice Accounts

We've added Time Zone support to practice accounts, to support 3rd part integrations like practice management integrations.  Go to Account Settings to set your time zone.

1. We added a new field "Print Date This Batch", allowing you to see a print date for each aligner batch
2. We replaced Print Date - Next Batch with the new field Print Date - This Batch; the feedback we heard it is more relevant to show the Print Date for the batch being displayed, not for the next batch.




New Feature: Assign Admin Rights to Users (Practice)

You can now assign admin rights to users, given you the flexibility to have more than one admin user on your account.

You must be logged in as the practice's primary admin account (we now refer to this as the superadmin),

Users granted admin rights inherent all admin rights.

Automated Bracket Removal (ABR) File Processing Options 

For customers using Automated Bracket Removal (ABR), we added some options to give you the flexibility to control which files do or do not get processed by Automated Bracket Removal.  If ABR is enabled on your account, a new menu option displays under Account Settings, Automated Bracket Removal (ABR)




When opened, the Automated Bracket Removal (ABR) Options page opens:



Under ABR Processing Type, there are two options:




Scans are sent to ABR automatically unless the prescription or scan is marked not to send

With this option enabled, by default, any scan with brackets is automated evaluated and brackets removed, creating a new STL file with brackets removed.    If there is a prescription or file you don't want ABR to run, you can exclude the Rx or file.

With this option enabled, when creating or editing aRx, the option to No Process ABR is displayed.  By clicking this, scans are not sent to ABR



When viewing a Rx, the option displays on the left menu panel:



When a file is manually uploaded to a patient record, a prompt appears asking if you want block this file from going to ABR:





Click Yes to send the scan to Automated Bracket Removal 
Click No to not send the scan to Automated Bracket Removal



On Demand - Choose which scans are processed by ABR at prescription or individual file level


With this option enabled, scans are not sent to ABR automatically, you must either mark the prescription to send the scans to ABR or mark the file to send to ABR.

With this option enabled, when creating or editing aRx, the option to Request Bracket Removal is displayed.  By clicking this, scans are sent to ABR



When viewing a Rx, the option displays on the left menu panel:



When a file is manually uploaded to a patient record, you can request ABR by clicking the ABR link next to the file:








Select Labs to Not Process Scans


For practices, practicess can also designate certain labs as labs you don't want ABR to run, regardless if the Automatic or On-Demand Option is enabled. For example, you may be using a Tracker lab and don't want ABR to run on any scans sent to your tracker lab. Or you may wish to only have ABR run on scans sent to your In-House lab, not to any commercial lab you send cases.   

Check the box next to the lab you don't want ABR to run
