Computerized charting is:
- Faster: You don’t need to go get the chart and re-file it, you don’t need to spend time writing the same thing over and over again.
- Better Organized: Everything isn’t stuffed in a folder but is organized in the electronic chart by default. That means users can instantly find anything with an electronic search. The chart will never be lost somewhere in an office stack.
- Less Expensive: Paper charts and file cabinets for 2500 patients will cost at least $15,000 and take up a chunk of office space. A good data server for the dental office will cost about $3,500, accommodate a lot more than 2500 patients and take up about a foot of space.
