You make some interesting points. Would you care to expand upon them? I can certainly see that training, particularly for older staff that didn’t grow up in the digital age might present a problem. Certainly hacking would be a consideration when weighing the risks of going with digital. I can see that a case could be made that digital theft is more likely to occur than physical theft of records..

On the opposite side of the coin, One must consider the use of modern technologies like Digital radiographs, Intra oral photographs, Dental scanners, CBCTs ect. It would be very difficult to run a practice that embraces these technologies without using digital patient records.


Certainly an an interesting topic for discussion!
