Most dental practices have come to realize how quickly technology has become part of everyday life in the practice. Nowhere is this more evident than with practices that are trying to become completely paperless.The challenge for most offices is to develop the best plan on how to evaluate their current and future purchases to ensure that all the systems will integrate properly together. I have therefore developed a six-point checklist that I feel is mandatory for any dentist who is adding new technologies to their office, and I recommend that each step be completed in order:
For offices that wish to be chartless or paperless, it’s crucial to evaluate all the systems that need to be replaced with a digital counterpart, and to take a systematic approach to adding these new systems to the practice. Most offices would be well advised to replace one system at a time, and get comfortable with this new system before adding new technologies to the practice. The typical practice will take 6-18 months to transition from a paper-based office to a chartless one, but the journey will be well worth the reward at the end.
