| I particularly
liked Donald Sherman on making high-tech work for you. He uses
symbols in his presentation; they keep you focused on what he
is saying, and symbols are visual and easier to read. He spoke
about the purchasing of high-tech equipment (talking to the
salespeople is like talking to its mother - you'll only hear
the good points), practice management systems and software,
surfing the internet and ordering dental supplies on-line, the
change from tire analog world to the digital world, the effect of voice activation,
interactive video conferencing, electronic data interchange,
and the networking of computers- He felt that the office scheduler
was a very important feature of a system.
||Today you need
a system with a sophisticated Report Manager, one that can produce
all reports overnight He felt that a tape backup is very important
it's like having malpractice insurance for computers. And you
must have a UPS (Uninterruptible Power Supply). He spoke about
many different products and rattled them all off by brand name.
When looking at equipment today, you must always ask yourself
who is sponsoring this speaker and does he/she have a private
agenda? Don should now be added to your list of high-tech speakers
to be heard. He was very interesting and extremely informative.
