Paperless Office in a HIPPA World

Many dental practices are moving towards a chartless or paperless office. Dentists see increased efficiency and decreased costs as motivating factors. There’s no time like the present to go paperless!

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 to get a paperless office, and getting objective advice from sales reps is an exercise in frustration.

Of course, new HIPAA and HITECH regulations complicate the process, but must be discussed as part of this. And, of course, using social media to differentiate your practice from other offices is an important consideration.

The purpose of this webinar about a paperless office is to give dental practices a 6-Step Plan on how to avoid a very costly mistake. We will evaluate a “treatment plan” of how to add technology in stages that considers both the impact on the staff as well as the practice’s budget.

We covered a 6-step Plan for a Paperless Office:

  • The major HIPAA rules and regulations
  • How to properly secure and protect the practice’s data
  • The multiple software systems that eliminate the need for paper charts
  • The classic mistakes that dentists make and how to avoid these pitfalls
