What cloud computing means for dentists  

Lately, there has been a great deal of discussion about cloud computing. According to, this term refers to the concept of having all the data a person would ever need accessible online, to anyone, unless the individual specifies that it should be private. It's a faster way to share any sort of data on any internet-connected device, rather than just keeping the information stored on one computer.

Recently, explained what this process means for dentists.

"No more trying to remember the treatment details of the patient who just called your emergency line. Your practice management software will exist on a personal cloud for your dental office. Fully compliant with HIPAA, this cloud will only be accessible by the appropriate people," according to the news provider.

Furthermore, the dental information site said that the cloud will eliminate the need to worry about a computer crash. Since all the information is stored online, it's impossible to lose, and if a computer fails, patients files will still be able to be accessed through any device that can connect to the internet.
