Course Title:  Going Paperless in a HIPAA World 

Presenter: Dr. Lorne Lavine 

Course Time: 7:00 PM – 9:00 PM EST

Course Description:

Many dental practices are moving towards a paperless environment, motivated by the promise of increased efficiency and decreased costs. The problem for many practices is that getting from here to there can be quite challenging. There are multiple hardware and software systems that need to work together, and getting objective advice from sales reps can be an exercise in frustration. New HIPAA and HITECH regulations complicate the process.

Course Objectives:

  • Evaluate a “treatment plan” for adding technology in stages that considers both the impact on the staff as well as the practice’s budget.
  • Identify and analyze third-party software that supplements dental practice management software
  • Understand the latest advances in dental technology such as 3D imaging, 3D impressions, digital radiography, caries detection, and other high-tech devices
  • Develop a sophisticated plan to monitor and back up the data to ensure little to no downtime even in the event of a disaster.
  • Discover new advances in dental technology, including data security, firewalls and virus protection
