If you came across this post, I bet you’re considering cloud dental software, but you’re not sure it's right for your dental practice. The idea of learning something new or making the wrong decision can be overwhelming. But don’t worry, making the decision to move to cloud dental practice management software is likely going to be one of the best decisions you’ve made for your practice!
To help you get some clarity, we’ve put together 3 reasons to get cloud dental software:
Minimized Upfront Cost: Most cloud software is licensed on a subscription basis, which means instead of paying thousands of dollars for a perpetual license, you pay a fee for access per month. Since cloud applications are hosted remotely, there are no physical server requirements, which means implementation also goes faster and costs less.
Increased Mobility and Collaboration: Rather than installing software on a physical hard drive, cloud applications are typically accessed by logging in through a web portal. That means providers can access the information they need from any location and device. Whether you’re in the office, traveling, or administering an at-home visit, cloud dental software helps you maintain continuity of care by staying connected to patient and procedural data.
Outsourced IT Maintenance: When you subscribe to a cloud-based dental practice management software, the vendor usually agrees to manage all IT maintenance, including bug-repair, updates, patches, and security. That can make a huge difference for a smaller practice with limited (or no) IT resources — saves time, saves money, frees your staff to focus on delivering care and improving the patient experience.
Now that you’re persuaded (hopefully), it's important to keep in mind that the right cloud dental software matters. You want something that is both easy for your staff to use as well as your patients. Many cloud dental practice management software requires 3rd-party vendors (something you’re probably used to if you’re on a server-based system now); these extra vendors make workflows clunky and not user friendly. They also have limited touch points for patients.
tab32 cloud dental software, on the other hand, is a complete all in one dental practice management solution with a robust patient engagement module. There’s no jumping from one vendor to the next to complete one thing. All your data is in one place making reporting very easy. It also has things like online booking where dental patients can request a time for an appointment or auto-book, and if you need to contact the patient, you can easily text them right from the system with the two way texting.
As mentioned earlier, moving your practice to cloud dental software is one of the best decisions you can make for your practice, but with a platform like tab32, you can be assured your practice will be more productive, profitable and your patients’ experience will be improved!
