Technical Data

Apixia uses a Switch.ini file to identify selected patients. Open Dental sends the selected patients birthdate, chart number (if selected), dentist ID (Open Dental provider abbreviation), digirex password (digirex), gender, name, and patient number to the Switch.ini file. The Apixia application loads the patient in the Switch.ini file.

Example file:


Apixia requires user ID's and passwords. Use the DigirexServer application to add users for Apixia. The 'Dr.ID' must match the provider abbreviation in Open Dental and all passwords must be 'digirex'. If the user ID and password are not setup correctly, you will receive a message and Apixia will freeze.
