Image Cloud: Advanced Imaging Capabilities Without the Costly Overhaul

August 18, 2022 | 3 min read

While recovering from the impact of the pandemic, many dental practices have switched to a cost-saving mode to maintain their financial health during this uncertain time.

Even though managing your expenses is critical, you don’t want to cut down on spending that could impact the quality of care or your future growth.

So what should you cut, and what should you keep?

When looking at your budget, you’d likely see that many expenses are associated with technologies. That’s not surprising—using the right equipment and software is the key to delivering effective treatments and retaining more patients.

But are all the software and tools meeting your needs? Are you paying for capacities you’re not using? Can you consolidate them to reduce operating costs? Can you make upgrades to stay current without the expense of overhauling your existing hardware?

It’s time to examine your tech stack and optimize your spending.

How To Optimize Your Dental Practice’s Technology Spending

Here’s how to decide what platforms to invest in and what tools you can cut to get the most of your budget:

Replace On-premise Software

On-premise solutions come with a lot of expenses. You need to hire an in-house team to maintain your IT infrastructure, purchase hardware to store files, and update the software to ensure regulatory compliance. That’s why more practices are using cloud dental software to access the latest functionalities without the high cost of ownership.

Lower Image File Storage Costs

Going digital helps streamline workflow and increase cost-efficiency. But storing large image files with an on-premise solution means you must purchase servers, rent the space to house them, and hire a team to maintain them. A cloud storage solution allows you to lower storage costs and increase scalability, so you don’t have to pay for excess capacity before you need it.

Invest in Essential Capabilities

Many practices waste money on bright shiny objects because they confuse must-haves with nice-to-haves. Meanwhile, others use platforms with too many bells and whistles so they pay for functionalities they don’t need.  To spend your resources wisely, identify essential capabilities and invest in best-in-class, specialized solutions to get the features you need at a reasonable cost.

Don’t Throw the Baby Out With the Bath Water

Adding new capabilities doesn’t mean overhauling your equipment and hardware. Look for solutions that can plug right into your current system and equipment, such as X-Ray sensors and camera hardware, so you can start leveraging the latest technologies immediately without a large capital investment to purchase compatible hardware.
