From McKinsey:

As more healthcare companies start to implement automation technologies, the ability to coordinate across the organization in achieving scale will be a major determinant of success.

Another thoughtful analysis from McKinsey. The linked article looks at many business sectors, not just medicine/dentistry and analyses how much of each business is liable to become automated. Healthcare is not high on the list, nevertheless there are a great many tasks we do in the dental office which can be automated and or done from home via telecommuting.

As I have said many times the health care crisis is not really a crisis in care it is a crisis in affordability. Anything which reducers costs while maintaining or even improving the quality of care will help relieve the crisis.
