Our network also functions as a Dental Service Organization (DSO), and our purpose is to be the leading private health network in Chile, providing accessible quality health available in different parts of the country and with human warmth. That is why their dentists focus on delivering quality patient care.
We have 45 dental clinics and over 1500 dentists throughout Chile, making it a prominent player in the country. As part of our digitalization strategy, we have chosen Medit as our technology partner for several compelling reasons.
Medit, a company with a presence in the market since 2000, caught RedSalud's attention with their highly successful i500 intraoral scanner, which was introduced in 2018. This scanner gained recognition for its competitive pricing and outstanding performance. Since then, we have closely followed Medit's progress as a DSO and observed the company's continued development.
One of the key factors that led RedSalud´s team to choose Medit and the scanner i700 and i600 as their digitalization partner is Medit's ability to integrate with various software systems and provide solutions for managing key performance indicators (KPIs) associated with the implemented technology. Medit consistently delivers new features, updates, and enhancements, constantly striving to enhance the client experience. Both scanners have excellent performance in their hardware and software.
The fact that Medit's software, Medit Link, is cloud-based aligns perfectly with RedSalud's transition towards cloud-based systems for their radiology picture archiving and communication system (PACS), clinical files, and both clinical and administrative management software. This cloud-based approach ensures greater flexibility, accessibility, and scalability for RedSalud's operations.
We, as RedSalud, greatly value the excellent support and communication provided by the Medit team and their representative in the country 3Dental that has been very important in supporting the development of the project. Furthermore, we also appreciate the fast and efficient learning curve experienced by dentists, regardless of their specialty, when using Medit's technology.
