From VentureBeat:

Dental offices are vulnerable to the same type of breach. If a vendor you use is compromised then your patient data could be at risk. That puts you at risk for a HIPAA violation and possibly a big fine. For example if the e-service you use to send reminders is hacked your patient data could be stolen as well. You protect yourself with a BAA (Business Associate Agreement) in which the vendor acknowledges and takes responsibility for data breaches they may have caused.

I believe the number one issue holding back more general acceptance of technology is security.
