World Backup Day – March 31st

What would you do if you lost everything?

Join XLDent this year and mark March 31st on your calendar as World Backup Day. A growing number of companies are using this day to annually audit their processes and backed up files to ensure that they can restore business continuity in the event of a catastrophic server failure.

As an IT professional, nothing grabs my attention faster than four little words: “My server is down.” Immediately, a chain of events is triggered. How do we get the server running again? How do we restore the dental practice management software? Where are the backups?

Set aside time this year to ensure you can restore your patients’ electronic dental records. Who did the last backup? When? Where is it? Was it done correctly? Was it successful? Does it include everything needed? Too often these questions aren’t answered until it’s time to put everything back together.

If you are an XLBackup™ client, an audit service is built in to your off-site, data protection plan. XLBackup is a managed, fully automated, online, off-site, data protection service that can help you keep a potentially serious business risk under control. It can enable your organization to quickly restore lost files, images and critical data to get your office back up and running in a disaster recovery situation. XLBackup is compatible with all Dental Practice Management and Image Management solutions. It is a necessary component of your electronic dental records management. For more information and to take advantage of XLDent’s World Backup Day promotion, contact us at 866-450-6717

Buzz about XLDent™

In a recent blog,  Emmott on Technology, Dr. Larry Emmott comments on XLDent’s ePrescribing feature.

“XLDent: Electronic Rx
by Larry Emmott on March 12, 2014
in Internet, Paperless

XLDent has released version 14.o with enhancements to address changes in the HITECH Act among others. XLDent is the only dental management software to offer integrated e-prescription.

XLDent™ is the first Dental Practice Management system to offer INTEGRATED ePrescribing services to help you complete your electronic dental health record.  In addition to the simplicity of sending prescriptions electronically, you will benefit from instant access to patient medication history lists, LexiComp’s medication database and dental specific information to help you improve patient outcomes.

I am not sure why we are still writing prescriptions on paper. At least I can print them rather than write them out like I did BC (Before Computer). ePrescriptions seems like such an obvious next step.

January Thaw at XLDent!

This past weekend temperatures soared to 40 degrees here in central Minnesota. It was truly a January Thaw! Now temperatures are settling in the low to mid 20′s and we are hopeful of more snow. Minnesota is a state of all season activities. In the winter time, XLDent staff enjoy ice fishing, skiing, snowmobiling and snowshoeing. Thus, our wish for more snow.

The recent warm weather put a fresh “spring” in our step this past week. We continue to develop content material for our new Electronic Dental Records Toolkit and Dental
