Why try BlueNote?

Because BlueNotes need to be experienced first, by the people who will actually be using them. The program isn’t simply technology that you can view on a monitor to understand how it really works. Strictly speaking, blue notes are the microtones between the regular notes on a musical scale. You can hear them when they’re played or when someone sings them, but there’s no way to write them down. Blue notes are soul - they are what make all the difference between classical and modern music. There is so much more to our BlueNotes than messaging. The system becomes the living heartbeat of an office, so that everyone knows where kindness is needed, every moment of the day.

Designed to be different

Before computers and wifi networks were introduced throughout medical practices, it was necessary to install external doctor call boxes to walls and counters, such as The Communicator, Porter Navicoms, Comlite, Visicom, Theta Lites, DigitUp, Cornell Lights, Expeditor, KelKom and others. BlueNote Lights requires no additional hardware expense, since existing Windows PCs host the program. More importantly, BlueNotes are far more effective than plastic light panels for summoning the right person at the right time.

When you know what your office needs in order to communicate better, it’s easy to set up BlueNote Lights for everyone from your computer, so that each user will receive the office-wide settings automatically as the program is added to all the other computers.

Unique Intra-Office Communications

Critical communications should never get lost or missed. Our conversations module allows team members to target specific locations for private messaging. At the same time, the BlueNote Light Panel alerts and timers ensure that notifications and tasks are shared between all staff.

No Training Required

Communication Systems should be reliable, repeatable, and effective. Because BlueNote Lights essentially is an overlay of your current workflow, it gives the team a familiar way to check in with one another to make sure everyone’s needs are being met.

Visual Aging

Provide your staff with an easy way to determine how long a task or message has been active. The customizable default times for each Light are 3 minutes, 7 minutes, and then Red after 10 minutes.

Key Features and Enhancements

Notifications

Popup Alerts, Tones, SMS, Email and Pushover options make sure that nothing gets missed, regardless of where a user is located in the practice.

Alert Manager

Selectively control the alerts for each computer to make sure that every interruption is intentional, and eliminate notifications that do not serve a particular area of the office.

Focused Mode

Sort only active Lights by the time each one was turned on, effectively creating a dynamic event queue. Control which Lights are included in Focused Mode and how they are displayed in the Focused options.

Priority Sequencing

Change the sort order of active Lights manually with three priority tiers. In other words, one Light can “cut in line” when needed.

Daily Activity

Review the day’s timed events, such as patient wait times, from any workstation to audit workflow efficiencies, see the clients where users are turning Lights off and on, and even copy data from a Light into charts or spreadsheets.

Light Escalation

Visually express the importance of any Light by adding “Escalate” to call more attention to one or more events.

Delayed Light

No need to remove gloves to click a Light at a certain moment! Set a Delay and a Light will turn on automatically at a predetermined time in the future.

Elapsed Timers

Every Light tracks how many minutes it has been active on the Light Panel. Elapsed times can be temporarily or permanently set to On at each workstation.

Light Labels

Organize all of the Lights by easily creating Labels to separate various types of Lights, whether they are used for arrivals, room statuses, messaging, or event-based alerts. Or leave some buttons blank to create simple patterns that make navigation more friendly.

Light Tags

Displaying a patient name throughout the course of an active Light allows users to track every step of patient throughput on a single Light event.

Sound Library

Decide which tone palette best fits the mood of the office. From spoken tones, soft melodic notes, animal sounds, and short chirps, to high-frequency chimes that soar over office noise, users can receive notifications with their ears instead of always needing to be near a computer monitor.

Do Not Disturb

Temporarily shut off all interruptions at each BlueNote client by engaging Do Not Disturb, and all other users will see a headphone icon displayed alongside your Conversation name to know that you are busy elsewhere.

BlueNote Actions

Customizable BlueNotes let you add Color and Sound to workflow tasks and notifications. BlueNotes can even reset the aging time, so staff members will quickly know how long the new task or procedure has been active.

Conversations

Yes, BlueNotes has a built-in chat system! Simplify direct messaging between users, which blends the familiarity of social icons and chat with the continuity of email.

Remote View

Turn any browser-enabled device connected to the office's private secure network into a remote control for BlueNote Lights activity, including Apple and Android devices.

Privacy Lock

Prevent unauthorized use on all workstations by enabling users to temporarily lock and unlock their communicator with a 3-digit office code.

Communications where you need it.

Need communications in the Lab, Break Room, or Consultation Room? Using BlueNote Remote with a web browser or Windows tablet is an inexpensive option for locations with space limitations or that have no need for a larger computer and monitor. Simply connect your Windows tablet to your internal WiFi network and install BlueNote or use a web browser on your WiFi-connected mobile device to communicate with BlueNote Remote.

New Feature

BlueNote Remote (No App Required)

Access for the communication “dark zones” of your practice. Don’t have PC’s everywhere? Interact with existing BlueNote clients from any device connected to your private network, whether it’s an iPad, a Chromebook, or even a personal phone. Each BlueNote client can activate Remote, allowing a web browser to see up to 30 active lights or interact with a single light as a remote control.

    Bausback & McGarry Family Dental Care
  • It has been a life saver during covid-19

    Advanced General Dentistry
  • Great communication tool within the office! A little tricky to set up because you have to go to each individual computer to change settings so that only relevant notifications pop up for each computer. However once it's set up, it works flawlessly. We used to use headsets, but they got cumbersome ever since the pandemic and we had to ramp up the amount of PPE we are wearing. We love the pop-up notifications as it helps remind the Drs about hygiene exams (we tend to forget about them sometimes :P). We also use it with the front desk to notify the back of patient arrivals. We had a couple trial periods prior to finally purchasing it and any time it got discontinued due to being in between trials, there was an uproar in the office. Needless to say, all of the staff loved the software as well! Great product!!

    Moore Dental Care
  • Fabulous tool....extremely user friendly and it makes communication throughout the office so easy.

    Fraccaro Dental Group

  • We so far have had a great experience with BlueNote it gets what we need done as far as messaging to the staff.

    Dr. Jeannine E Wyke DMD
  • The BlueNote system has been amazing for our multi-chiropractor clinic. It has made us so much more efficient. Not sure how we functioned without it! I would highly recommend this to any and every doctor office. It is easy to use and to modify for your specific office and also very affordable.

    MY Life Health Center
  • Had Comlite system in the past and this was a seamless transfer to a new system.

    Kenneth Brossel DDS
  • This communication system is awesome.

    Park Center Dental Care
  • (5 Stars) Rating is based on testing product to purchase. It is user friendly and customizable. Seems to meet all the boxes of what we were looking for to meet our large office's needs of communication.

    Grove City Family Dentistry
  • Our staff love using BlueNote Lights. It has enhanced communication and increased our clinic's productivity exponentially. We would love a lot more animal sounds to be added though!

    Sterner Veterinary Clinic
  • This is the intra-office communication software I've been looking for! Love everything about it: the customization, ability to install on unlimited workstations with one license, and the always on status (no additional logins required). So much better than other internet or EHR based messaging systems we have tried. You have made my communication dreams come true. No more having to pick up a phone or leave the exam room to get what I need for a patient. The clinic is starting to hum with efficiency. Thank you so much!

    Nathan Heilman, OD - Northfield MN
  • SO happy and thankful! Our veterinary practice is more efficient and thorough, and communicating has improved above and beyond my expectations as a manager. Such an easy transition for the staff. The alert sounds are a fun addition too of course!

    Pine Tree Veterinary
  • We have been very pleased with our 30 day trial and are looking forward to using it. Everyone that I have dealt with has been very friendly and so helpful!!! I would highly recommend BlueNote.

    Ash General Dentistry
  • Great way to communicate across a large office. Wearing radios allows one conversation to be held at a time and it goes to all parties. Blue Note allows the customization for multiple conversations to be held at your fingertips and you can control who gets the messages. We love the alerts that stay up until doctor has taken care of exams and the quick messages that can be sent to a specific computer instead of everyone hearing the message. It helps cut out confusion on which person is sending the message. Great investment!

    Valerie Moore - My Dentist Joplin
  • This has been a life saver for our practice and our patients! THANK YOU!!!!!

    Tammy Boudry, DDS
  • We love it...we went away from it for a while, were using a different program, and the whole staff is excited to come back to BlueNote.

    Brad Redmond - Riverstone Dental Care
  • I like BlueNote lights a lot…. I prefer BlueNote lights over google's chat, Squiggle (intranet messenger) and another that we tried that I can't remember. We used to be with Practice Director and they had a great inter-office tracking feature, but other negative aspects of that software meant that we could not keep the sound up on the PCs running that software, so having the sounds with BlueNote is great.

    Jay Chretien, OD
  • The flexibility and ease of use is amazing. Super user friendly which has made for a great transition from our hard wired system ! Customer support also has been great!

    Becky Rottman, Endodontics PA Baltimore
  • We started using the Blue Note System when we moved into our new office about a month and a half ago. We absolutely love it. We are able to communicate with each other without having to get up and go from operatory to operatory. “When the patient gets here I can just send the Doctor a blue note instead of having to get up and interrupt his work to tell him his patient has arrived. The hygienist can request exams without having to go down the hall and find the dentist. It makes everything run much smoother and in a more timely manner. I would recommend the system for any type of professional office.

  • BlueNote saved our practice over $8000 by not installing a new Theta communications system in our new office. Love it!

  • BlueNotes are awesome! We’ve used this program now in our dental office for about two years and love it. It’s easy for everyone on our staff to use–installation and training was a breeze. We appreciate being able to customize it to our situation and would recommend it to anyone needing great communication throughout the office.

  • Just a quick note to tell you (y'all?) how much we LOVE BlueNote. Within a half-hour of downloading and installing it we were hooked. This simple little program has made such a huge difference in how smoothly our day runs. Hands-down, this is one of the best purchases we have ever made for office! Thanks again for a wonderful product.

  • I received the software with my morning package delivery and within an hour we were using it. It was simple to install and has worked flawlessly. We have 12 networked computers and a server and have been able to use BlueNote on all of them. “My staff loves that they don’t have to use the keyboard much, just a click or two of the mouse and the message is sent with a personal tone to alert others. My office is 3400 sq. ft. and the staff found it inefficient to walk around looking for who they needed. The cost was a fraction of a wired in communicator and much more flexible. And what is even better is if I ever move I can take it with me and start over without added expense. We have used the communicator for several months now and have not had to change a thing. It was designed to work perfectly in a dental office and I highly recommend you try it in yours.

  • We had previously used the typical 10-light button system dental offices have used for years and occasionally used the software included in our practice management software. However, with the installation of BlueNote, we’ve been more efficient in our “silent” communications, resulting in better service to our patients. “Your support has been exceptional and your responsiveness to our suggestions for software enhancements has been unparalleled. Please count me as an enthusiastic user of BlueNote Communicator!

  • Our whole office loves BlueNote Communicator. I want you to know how happy I am with my Communicator/Timer combo. It's already the coolest dental product on the market. Our patients think we're really "high tech" for just using it. Thanks for improving our workflow.

  • We have been looking for something exactly like this for two years. Now we don't want to spend a minute without the system. We have fine tuned all the messages to what we use and it works great, especially the hot keys for quick paging! We are now sharing the great find with any one who will listen (including our patients). Great system, what a time saver! We also have started using the Blue Timer for dental procedures and employees really like it compared to the old digital timers we had in each operatory. Thanks for your software - both have saved us time in many ways.

  • This program has greatly increased the efficiency of our office. We have been able to expedite our patient flow and become extremely efficient.

    Heber Springs Eye Care Center
  • We love BlueNote so far - we had tried a trial with another product and was very disappointed. Called local dentist in our area and they stated they use BlueNote and loved it. We were able to get it up and running in no time and have really liked the product on our trial basis.

  • I would like to thank the people of BlueNote Communicator for coming up with an outstanding product. We have a very busy dental office with eight operatories. Our office employs two dentists and three hygienists. For well over a year, our in-office communication system, [a wireless light panel] was a source of complaint at our weekly staff meetings. We continued to work at tweaking the way we used it, for we didn’t know of any alternative. “We heard about BlueNote and decided to download the free trial software. It was an instant hit at our office. We knew after one or two days we were not going to practice without this program again. It seems as though our communication system continues to be a topic of conversation at every staff meeting. Only now, it is a “thank you” for purchasing BlueNote Communicator. It has greatly decreased the amount of stress in our office. Now you can look at the screen and immediately know who needs you and where you are needed. It even lets you know how long your hygienist or patient has been waiting, so that you can prioritize which room to go to next. I just wanted to take the time to let you know of the impact you have made on our practice. Thank you BlueNote!
