Essential Questions For Dentists To Ask Before Investing In New Technology

Essential Questions For Dentists To Ask Before Investing In New Technology | IT Support and Hardware for Clinics | Scoop.it

The path to improving your dental practice presents multiple business and professional challenges.

 

You will be faced with big decisions on budgets, and confusing choices on the equipment to purchase.

 

You need to make the right decisions because today’s market leaves little margin for errors. Here are a few helpful tips for dentists to consider before investing in new technology:

 

1. WILL IT IMPROVE THE QUALITY OF PATIENT CARE?

 

Any investment that promises to benefit your patients is worth a closer look. Invest in technology that reduces the length of operations and makes procedures less painful.

 

However, before purchasing the technology, take time to investigate its benefits. Beware of exaggerated claims. It is also worth noting that technologies that improve one area but undermine another are not worth the time or the effort.

 

2. WILL IT INCREASE THE SPEED AND QUALITY OF OPERATIONS?

 

The new upgrades will be worthwhile if they either streamline the operations in the dental clinic without downgrading the quality of service or if they enable members of your staff to perform their duties better.

 

Be careful while looking at various technologies because manufacturers present their products in an attempt to sell. Scrutinize all the claims they make carefully and make sure the technology will have a positive impact on the dental practice.

 

3. WILL THERE BE A CONSIDERABLE ROI IN A REASONABLE AMOUNT OF TIME?

 

The question is not whether there will be a return of interest, but if the ROI will be significant and materialize in a short period.

 

The improvements of the technology shouldn’t be incidental or take years to occur.

 

The equipment you purchase should have an impact almost immediately.

 

4. WILL YOUR STAFF MASTER THE NEW TECHNOLOGY QUICKLY?

 

When calculating ROI, factor in if the new technology requires new skill sets and systems to run effectively.

 

Be careful not to choose a technology that will require staff training or new hires.

 

Consider these essential factors to ensure that the new technology is truly beneficial to your dental practice.

This Is Windows 10’s New Web Browser and Dark Theme

This Is Windows 10’s New Web Browser and Dark Theme | IT Support and Hardware for Clinics | Scoop.it

Microsoft is preparing to unveil a new browser in Windows 10, code-named Spartan, and leaked images are providing an early glimpse at the Internet Explorer successor. Chinese site Cnbeta has published screenshots showing the simple interface of Spartan and the Cortana digital assistant integration. The Verge revealed yesterday that Spartan will include digital inking support to share and annotate webpages, and deep Cortana integration in the address bar and throughout the browser.


Cnbeta’s screenshots also reveal Microsoft’s upcoming Windows 10 user interface. Sources familiar with Microsoft’s Windows plans tell The Verge that the company is planning to build light and dark themes with color accents for Windows 10. The look and feel will be similar to that of the existing user interface for Windows Phone, and these leaked screenshots provide an early look at an internal Microsoft concept and the aim for the final UI. They do not represent the final interface, as Microsoft will be tweaking it a number of times over the coming months. Some of these user interface changes have started appearing in recent builds of Windows 10, with the new dark taskbar surfacing in a leaked version last month. Microsoft is also tweaking its built-in apps to match the new color schemes, with a new Xbox app that hints at what the company is planning for the final version of Windows 10.

Microsoft is expected to unveil these user interface changes and a mobile version of Windows 10 for tablets and phones at a press event on Jan. 21. The software maker will also likely detail its plans for the Spartan browser across PCs, phones, and tablets.
