IMS joins Focus Ortho


Birmingham, AL (March 23, 2015) – IMS, one of the enduring names in orthodontic practice management, joins Focus Ortho, the industry upstart, to deliver the next generation of orthodontic technology.

Charlie Dunham, President and CEO of Focus Software and a 20-year industry veteran says, “Focus Ortho was designed for the cloud from the ground up. The customizable interface offers offices unprecedented access to their data while remaining incredibly easy to use. The system features everything an office would expect and more. The integrated e-mail and text reminders, patient web portal, integrated imaging, and full-featured automated billing system save offices thousands of dollars a year in third-party software fees.”

“IMS has been known for its innovative integrations, incredibly robust scheduling system, and industry-leading tracking and communication system, ITRAC,” says Ken Fitzgerald, President of IMS. “I encourage everyone to talk to IMS users about our decades of commitment to efficient practice automation and customer support.”

According to Charlie, his main goal is to combine the strengths of these two programs, delivering the technological innovation of Focus Ortho across the stable operational base of IMS. “The first impact on our joint customers will be expanded customer support with staff available across three time zones. Within the year, IMS customers will be able to transition to the Focus Ortho platform with the stability and customer support they have come to depend on.”

This strategic alliance will combine both operations into a single company that will continue to operate under the name Focus Software of Alabama, LLC.
