Would you like to be able to access your PC from home?

Logmein is a tool that we use at DentalPC to help fix your issues remotely. We can also setup multiple users under our subscription giving you access to your office computers from anywhere in the world. The nice thing about that is when you get an emergency call or prescription requests you don’t have to drive to the office.

As your technology specialist, we feel strongly about keeping you informed regarding these laws and providing the latest solutions to ensure your data is safe and your office is HIPAA compliant.

Don’t Be a Victim

Economic change over the past several years has affected the way dentists practice. Some are discounting fees, working later hours, and even running their practice with less employees all in an effort to remain profitable and keep the doors open. Many doctors are so overwhelmed with the pressure that comes along with these changes and depend heavily on their team to take care of the administrative duties they should be performing themselves.

Make the switch to the Digital Panorex

The end of the film panorex is finally upon us. Most panorex manufacturers no longer sell film pans and aside from retrofits and phosphor plate systems the film panorex has reached the end of its product life cycle. The digital panorex has finally reached full maturity and has taken over the market based on its lower operational costs and increased diagnostic quality.

Five quick tips to keep your laptop from overheating

Laptops are invaluable machines that allow you to take the office with you, without having to lug around a massive desktop. What is also really useful about them is that most new laptops have the same power as desktops but in a much smaller case. There is a price to be paid however: Cram enough components into a small space and they will generate heat.

Direct Project offers access to secure messaging

One of the most asked for features in today’s electronic medical record (EMR) technology is a secure built-in messaging system. This is an important feature and many providers are integrating this feature. One project aims to make that easier, Direct Project.

The benefits of coordinated care

Communities in which health-care providers work together to coordinate evidence-based hospital discharges can see a six percent drop in hospitalizations and rehospitalizations in just the first two years, according to a new project study.

For the project, described January 22 in the Journal of the American Medical Association
(JAMA), the Colorado Foundation for Medical Care (CFMC) coordinated 14 of Medicare’s Quality Improvement Organizations (QIOs), which are funded by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services to help achieve national quality goals through focused efforts at the community and provider level.
