Consider this – your patient data, whether in a database or on paper, is your practice’s most valuable asset. As explained by Henry Doyle, the managing broker at Al Heaps & Associates, the majority of a practice’s value lies in the quality of their patient charts – not the building, not the equipment, but the data. When buying a practice, selling a practice, or upgrading your software, the treatment of your data conversion should be taken seriously!
Now, consider that ClearDent has successfully converted millions of patient charts into our software over the past 15 years. Check out our pain-free process:
First, we analyse your data. No matter what form it’s in, we’ve seen it before.
- Competitor’s program – Yep.
- Paper charts – Of course!
- Obsolete software – Many times.
- Recovery of botched conversions – Unfortunately, yes.
We perform an analysis before we begin so we have a full picture of what you have, how we can access it, and the best way to transfer it to ClearDent.
Second, we map your data. We take every piece of data you have and determine the best place within our software to store it. This is where ClearDent differs from other data conversion options. We’ve seen others offer cheap, sometimes even free, data conversion by cutting corners and dumping all your information into the notes field. While technically the data is transferred, you need your data in the right places or it will be unusable.
At the completion of the mapping stage, our Implementation Specialists will go over the mapping plan with you to ensure you have a full understanding and are happy with the plan we’ve put together.
Third, we convert your data. With our plan in place, all that’s left to do is to execute. When complete, your data will be ready for you just as we planned, and you will be able to access it and start using your new software immediately.
ClearDent is proud to say that, after thousands of conversions and millions of charts, we have never failed a single conversion. Quality requires investment, so data conversion is something that you won’t want to award to the cheapest option.
