Buying Your Computer System

Buying Guide

The IT requirements of a modern dental practice are becoming more and more complex. WYSdom supplies a 'turnkey' system of hardware and software to run all the main administration tasks of your practice and we have Buying Guide which will give you a good idea of what to look for and how to work out the costs of your system. Look for the overall cost of ownership over a three year period so you can compare quotes rather than just looking at the initial headline pricing.

There are also some fundamental 'Do's and Don'ts' listed here to help you make the correct decision. If you have some knowledge before talking to potential suppliers, you are more likely to get what you want rather than just being sold to; after all knowledge is power - so they say!
 

Other Considerations

Besides the actual system, there are many other elements that are down to the dentist and associates to 1, be aware of and 2, have procedures and policies in place for their management. These are things that have only come into the mainstream over the last couple of years but it's critical that you know about them and deal with them effectively.

These topics include:
 

  • Wireless Technology - how to remain secure when offering your patients and staff WiFi access
  • BYOD - Bring Your Own Device - how to manage the use of your staff's own mobile phones and tablets
  • Security - how to reduce the chance of ending up with a computer virus or malware on your system
  • Data Compliance - best practice on keeping your data from prying eyes

We have therefore included links to a variety of documents and White Papers that can give you an initial understanding of the topics and guidance on how you should manage them.
