Date for your diary: ADI Introduction to Kiroku webinar at 19:00 on Wednesday 25 August 2021 - see https://www.adi.org.uk/events/1474/webinar_streamline_your_note_taking_with_adi_and_kiroku.

Many clinicians would agree that record keeping is a crucial, yet somewhat mundane aspect of modern dentistry. Meticulous notes are vital for high-quality patient care, as well as providing invaluable protection for dentists against potential litigation. However, good note taking requires a significant amount of time out of an already busy day and it is all too easy for even the smallest of mistakes to have a disproportionate impact should a patient complaint be raised. 

Given the complex nature of dental implant treatment, the Association of Dental Implantology (ADI) has recognised the importance of good record keeping and moved to support its members in the area. The organisation has, therefore, introduced a new membership benefit designed to help members optimise the quality and efficiency of their patient notes. 

Introducing Kiroku

The ADI has introduced free access to an ADI script for implant consultations on Kiroku. This is a digital note-taking solution designed to help clinicians ensure the quality and efficiency of their notes, while saving them precious time and stress at the same time. 

It works by providing a dynamic template for patient records, prompting dentists or team members to complete all the necessary fields to ensure completeness. It substantially speeds up the entire process by providing a number of scripts that automatically populate certain fields when selected, making it faster and simpler to maintain comprehensive notes after every appointment. 

Hannah Burrow, CEO of Kiroku, comments:

“Kiroku is an intelligent workflow tool designed to improve everyday life in practice. It can reduce time spent taking notes by up to 60%, which makes a massive difference to clinicians during a busy working day. It also supports decisions by categorising notes and highlighting key information, guiding the dentist through one of the more repetitive aspects of their work for fewer errors and improved legal protection. 

“As a dentist myself, I understand the stresses faced in practice, which is why Kiroku was created. Ultimately, it offers peace of mind and enables clinicians to focus on their patients, not their notes. We are really excited to work with the ADI, helping to give members confidence that they’re capturing all the information they need for every patient.” 

ADI members now have access to the ADI approved implant consultation template on Kiroku for free. Anyone looking to introduce Kiroku for all their appointments can access the basic or pro plan at a significantly discounted rate – 10% off Basic and 30% of Pro. Pro includes automated letters and treatment plan support to enhance patient communication and workflow efficiency. 

Tried and tested

Dr Shushil Dattani, ADI Regional Representative for South East England, has been instrumental in adding Kiroku to the already impressive list of membership benefits. He has been using the platform in his own practice for over a year now and says:

“Implant dentistry has always been fairly litigious. Record keeping is essential, but good records take time. I found Kiroku saves valuable time for clinical record taking. It is very intuitive, offering a script – which has been guided by the FGDPUK clinical record keeping standards – to simplify the process and help with potential litigation. Being able to offer this Kiroku template for free to ADI members is amazing.”

One of many member benefits

Eimear O’Connell, ADI President, reiterates the importance of quality record keeping in today’s profession:

“Fear of medicolegal litigation has increased over the past few years. In order to help our membership make contemporaneous notes in a comprehensive but more simplified way, the ADI is delighted to announce this latest member benefit. We have partnered with Kiroku because we believe the digital note-taking platform will provide valuable support for all our clinicians in this area. This is true both for its practical implementation and in its ability to reduce stress levels. As such, it is yet another great reason to become an ADI member.”

As Eimear mentions, the ADI offers its members a wide range of benefits that have been carefully selected to help the entire dental team overcome the challenges of modern implant dentistry. Aside from access to Kiroku, there are an array of educational resources including access to Dentinal Tubules, ADI Study Clubs, ADI Webinars and the ADI Members’ National Forum, as well as discounted rates for major events like the ADI Team Congress and ADI Masterclass. Membership also incorporates access to 50 free patient information leaflets, relevant clinical journals and the exclusive ADI Members Only Facebook Group. Of course, all of this is in addition to the extensive network of professionals across the dental implant field, which offers a community of peer support.
