Event Details

Digital data handling in the paperless practice.

Come join us in 2020 for our Destination Education course in Perisher!

The digital revolution of dentistry continues unabated and digital workflow and data management create immense opportunities not only to streamline patient administration but significantly improve the quality of care dentists provide. However, digital data management also presents significant legal risks if not handled correctly. In addition to compliance with privacy laws, the requirements of statutory and regulatory authorities also need to be met.
This two-day course will look at implementing systems to streamline the handling of records in the paperless office. Through a combination of presentations, hands on exercises, and discussion panels, participants will come away with some new perspectives on how to manage the digital revolution and readily implemented processes to achieve  greater outcomes in patient care.

Accommodation for the two days must be booked separately. Attendees are advised to book as soon as possible to ensure they do not miss out as this course will be running during peak ski season.
