tops Software Releases topsOrtho™ 6.0

D7 Matrix™ analytics allows doctors to pinpoint every patient

ATLANTA, Feb. 25, 2014—tops Software has released the latest version of its practice management software. topsOrtho 6.0 comes with several new features, including topsChecklist (which allows a practice to create customized checklists) and a new backup mechanism that automatically saves practice data each hour. It also includes redesigned treatment notes. topsOrtho 6.0 also marks the debut of D7 Matrix™ analytics.

D7 Matrix takes a dynamic approach to analytics and is designed to give orthodontists a much clearer picture of what’s happening in their practices than with traditional reporting. “For the past 20 years, the orthodontic software industry has completely failed our profession,” says Dr. Mark Sanchez, founder and CEO of tops Software. “Consultants haven’t been able to get the information they need, and reporting has been a painful and inefficient process for the staff members in a practice. With D7 Matrix, we’ve found the perfect balance between complexity and simplicity. In just one or two clicks, anyone—doctors, staff members, consultants—will be able to create an interactive multidimensional analysis.” With D7 Matrix, orthodontists can view statistics such as the following, all in one place:

  • Where each patient is, in his or her treatment (for example, how many patients are in active treatment and how many are in retention)
  • Profitability by treatment length and treatment method
  • Productivity by treatment coordinator
  • New starts, patients pending care, patients nearing the end of their treatment, and more

tops Software began rolling out D7 Matrix to its clients on Jan. 15. Prospective clients can see D7 Matrix at meetings such as the following:

  • Washington State Society of Orthodontists meeting: Feb. 28; Bellevue, Wash.
  • South Carolina Association of Orthodontists Annual Meeting: Feb. 28–Mar. 1; Charleston, S.C.
  • Florida Association of Orthodontists Annual Session: Mar. 7–9; Tampa, Fla.

“D7 Matrix will radically change what orthodontists expect from their analytics,” Sanchez says. “Our secret blend of data, neatly folded into a seven-dimensional matrix, will allow orthodontists to see their practices in new and beautiful ways. I think everyone will have an ‘Aha!’ moment when they see how our D7 Matrix blows away old-school reporting.” About tops Software Dr. Mark Sanchez founded Atlanta-based tops Software in 1992.
