Dental emergencies can happen at any time so it’s very often you may need to access a patient’s files outside of office hours. With a dental office cloud, you can access all your files remotely from home or anywhere.
Dental Office Manager: Problem 1
It’s your turn to field after-hour calls, and sure enough, at 7 p.m. on a Friday, a patient calls complaining of severe vomiting.
He’d seen the dentist earlier that day for an abscess, and says he’d been prescribed some medication, but you can’t really place him and you don’t really know what’s going on. And he can’t read the prescription label, so you don’t even know what he’s taking.
Do you call the dentist? Do you tell the patient to go to the hospital?
SOLUTION 1 – ACCESS DENTAL FILES REMOTELY
Wouldn’t it be great if you could get on your iPad, and access his dental information remotely?
If you could, you’d find out he was prescribed metronidazole instead of amoxicillin because of an allergy. And you know that metronidazole can cause vomiting — especially when mixed with alcohol. Then, you could ease his mind, call the dentist, and ask him to call in an anti-nausea medication that the patient could then pick up.
But you can’t because all that info is in your dental office and you really, really don’t want to leave your couch and go back to the office after the long and hectic week you’ve had.
TIME TO GET YOUR DENTAL OFFICE FILES INTO THE CLOUD…
If your dental practice made expert use of the Cloud, you’d be set. You could access the patient data you need:
- On any device
- From anywhere
- At anytime
…But, Not Just Any Cloud
Not all Clouds are the same.
- Some are public, and not so great if you need to ensure security and privacy of patient health information.
- Some are private, but require you to learn a different practice management software package than what you already use.
- And, some public and private clouds just can’t accommodate some of the applications you need to manage your dental office.
And then there’s The Complete Cloud™
Work Remotely from Anywhere with The Complete Cloud™
“Yeah, right,” you’re saying. “I can’t work remotely. I need to manage the dental office and the schedules and the dentist and the patients and oversee the bookkeeping and billing and insurance claims.”
Dental Office Manager: Problem 2
But what if you wake up with a bad head cold? You could go into work and wear a mask all day and feel miserable.
Or, you could stay home and feel miserable — without that danged mask — and still get some work done.
SOLUTION 2 – ACCESS DENTAL OFFICE REMOTELY
You could just make a cup of tea, take your laptop to bed, log into The Complete Cloud™, to access your dental office files and proceed to check the staffing schedule, answer some emails, and instant message a colleague. Maybe even ensure that some of the images needed for the day were readily available for the dentist.
And, because you’re working, it probably won’t even count as a sick day. Ah. Now you see some possibilities.
But, wait! There’s more!
Dental Office Manager: Problem 3
You just opened a new dental location a few months ago. All its patient data is there, as are all the schedules, billing stuff, and ya-da-da.
You can’t access it from your current dental office. The problem is the dentist in your location wants you to pull together a report that deals with both locations, so you have to drive 20 miles through city traffic to get the info you need from that location.
The you have to drive back, get your info, compile the two, and write the bloody report. Just another day in the life, right?
SOLUTION 3 – A DENTAL CLOUD IS SCALABLE
One of the beauties of The Complete Cloud™ is that it grows as you grow. It’s scalable. When you open a new dental office location, you just add some more user licenses, and all the data — from both practices — is accessible to you no matter where you are.
BUT, WHAT ABOUT DATA SECURITY AND PRIVACY? WHAT ABOUT DENTAL IMAGING?
Not to worry. We’re HIPAA certified, along with a bunch of other stuff. And The Complete Cloud™ integrates all the dental software you already use.
In addition, it offers:
- Military-grade encryption
- Physical and virtual security
- User authentication
- Real-time backups
- CBCT scan storage
- Safeguards up the wazoo
- And a team that “gets” dental practices
Yup. That’s right. An IT, security, HIPAA team that all understand dental software, dental practices, office workflows, and all of the challenges you face.
