Experts call for consistent digitization in healthcare

Digital systems are essential for modern dentistry. But they are not consistently applied in practices. Experts including Dr. Axel Wehmeier discuss the new trends in the dental industry and how dentists can take advantage of the digital world in the new edition of VISION, the Innovation Magazine from Sirona.

The inconsistent handling of patient data is anachronistic. Only those who are willing to make their patient data digitally available will be able to take part in the tremendous progress occurring in medicine and benefit from innovative, life-saving measures in emergencies. Dr. Wehmeier is one of the experts who deal with the key issue of “digitization” in the customer magazine.

The fact that digital systems are essential for modern dentistry is emphasized by Jeffrey T. Slovin, President and CEO of Sirona, in the magazine’s foreword: “Whether during diagnosis, planning or treatment – they make processes better, faster, safer, and more efficient. We believe that by integrating and combining different technologies, digitization can be the basis for completely new treatments.”

The international customer magazine VISION informs dentists and their practice teams as well as dental technicians about news from the dental industry twice a year in German and English.

In addition to the print edition, Sirona provides the VISION magazine on the company’s website as an e-paper and as a free tablet magazine for the iPad in the App Store.
