Digital Dentistry 101 – The Basics
This lecture will provide the audience with the fundamentals of digital dentistry. Basic concepts will be defined such as what it means to go; digital, paperless or chartless. Ownership of data and meaningful use of data will be discussed in relation to the private practice office. An overview of regulatory and healthcare system guidelines legislation will be completed.
Big Data and its’ relation to organized dentistry both nationally and provincially will be discussed. We will also identify the implications of big data on the practice of dentistry.
Building upon those concepts we will then be able to understand the components of a digital office and how the dentist can make sure they are supported. We will be discussing how to secure your digital office specifically looking at access, backups and encryption. Current threats such as “ransomware” will be discussed.
Lastly we will look to how your digital office communicates with the world through various sources including email, portals and social media.
Through this interactive course the audience will obtain an understanding of their risks of using digital technologies and mitigation strategies to enable the dentist to have continuous operation while staying in compliance with privacy, security and regulatory legislation.
