The BIGGEST Barrier to going High Tech

Implementing new technology involves more than buying and installing a product – it also requires change. People resist change for a variety of reasons and overcoming that resistance, from both doctors and staff, is often more of a challenge than actually using the technology.

It is so easy to make an expensive mistake when buying technology!

Dentists face two daunting challenges. First, if they fail to use new technology effectively they risk falling behind competitively. Secondly, implementing new technology is expensive, however undoing a mistake can be even more expensive. As a result dentists are cautious about new technology and justifiably suspicious regarding vendor claims.

The Emmott on Technology team mission is to help dentists make wise technology choices minimize costs and maximize profits through the effective use of computers and technology.

The Three Biggest Mistakes

The three biggest mistakes dentists make when attempting to use technology are:

  1. Failing to know what is possible and developing a high tech vision or plan.
  2. Not getting enough training including ongoing training.
  3. Continuing to do things the old way instead of using technology to do things differently.

Stuff vs. Solutions

A problem I see over and over again with high tech and dentistry is Stuff vs. Solutions. The most visible element of digital technology is the thing; that is the computer, the sensor the big monitor or even the web page. Because these things are so obvious the tendency is to think of technology in terms of these things, in other words “stuff”. If you have the stuff you are high tech.

Having stuff is nice but the real value of technology is when it can be used to provide a solution. Technology by itself has no value it only has value when it used to enhance our systems both human systems and clinical systems. Most of the time when dentists or team members are frustrated with technology it is not actually the stuff that creates the frustration. Frustration results when the team is unable to get the result, the solution, they need.

A human system for example is the work flow needed to schedule a patient, remind them of an appointment, and get the proper information to the dentist regarding that patient. A clinical system would be capturing a diagnostic aid like a radiograph or detecting decay.

If a dental office has a good PMS (Practice Management System) like Dentrix that is stuff. Following the human system example above many offices will use the PMS to schedule, then call the patient to remind them and then dig out a paper chart from the files to record and transfer information about the patient. They may have stuff, but do not have a good solution.

On the other hand if the office uses the PMS to make an appointment then connects to a web service to send an e-reminder and gets a complete patient record with a single mouse click from any computer in the office; that is a solution.

The office with good high tech solutions will get much more value from technology that those offices who just buy stuff.

Buying stuff is easy (as long as you have the money :-)) Developing and implementing solutions takes a lot more effort.

Hard to Imagine

In 1986 I bought 30 MB of storage for $10,000.

Today I can buy a Terabyte (TB) thumb drive for $30 (or less).

Over 33,000 times more memory for 330 times less money.

Or for $10,000 I can buy 250 TB of storage.
