CS Connect to DEXIS IS Connect Transition FAQ
Q: Will my CS Connect account be disabled if I am importing my CS Connect account profile into Dexis IS Connect?
A: No, importing your CS Connect profile into DEXIS IS Connect does not prevent the usage of CS Connect.
Q: Is the order in which Laboratory and Dentist imported their profile important?
A: No. Given both dentist and laboratory have imported their profile, they will appear in their respective partner list, and cases history will be updated. The last one to import triggers this update but the result is the same regardless the order.
We recommend however the laboratory anticipate and signup now while dentist can do that a bit later when starting to use DEXIS IS ScanFlow.
