Everything you need for your network in a sleek, mobile, low-profile rack that you can easily roll into your dental office.
Digital dentistry has a lot of benefits, but it also creates new challenges. You not only have to be concerned with taking care of patients and running a business, but also with the information technology (IT) that runs your practice. It can get complicated. Dealing with outdated hardware, software licenses, non-secure firewalls, inefficient backups, and unmanaged network solutions can be outright overwhelming.
Some dentists put together their own hodgepodge office network to try to save a few bucks–and then are surprised when they get inconsistent results. Good IT is an investment in your practice’s success, but it can be expensive, especially if you add in cheap, consumer-grade equipment that has to be fixed and replaced often. One author quotes a study by the Gartner Group that puts the annual cost of owning and managing your onsite IT system as being up to four times as costly as the initial purchase.
The Answer: Omnicore
In response to these concerns, TechCentral by Henry Schein One created Omnicore, an all-in-one dental practice “network in a box” with components designed to work in harmony. Everything you need for your network comes in a sleek, mobile, low-profile rack that can be easily rolled into your dental office. The hardware includes:
- Virtualized server
- Network-attached storage (NAS)
- Uninterruptable power supply (UPS)
- Business-grade firewall
- Business-grade wireless access point
- Networking switch
Maintenance and management, remote monitoring, software licensing and updates, hybrid data backup, and support services are also included as part of the monthly subscription fee, so you can truly set it and forget it.
Let Us Worry About That
A practice can lose thousands of dollars–and valuable staff productivity–when IT issues compromise computer systems and data security. Omnicore helps prevent these problems by keeping your hardware and software up to date, using a business-grade firewall to help thwart viruses, and backing up your practice data.
The hardware used in Omnicore is high-quality, durable, business-grade equipment. If something breaks or dies, TechCentral will promptly fix it or replace it.
Minimize Expensive Downtime
As part of the Omnicore service, your network is monitored remotely. With unlimited access to TechCentral Support, you can resolve IT issues, in most cases, right away, saving you expensive downtime. Using Omnicore means you don’t have to spend time or money purchasing, installing, and maintaining your network infrastructure or worrying about updates. Now you can focus on your patients again, and ditch the role of a part-time IT tech who has to deal with frustrating IT issues.
A Wise Investment
Think of the time and money you invest in keeping your network hardware healthy. Additional costs can become exponential when you factor in important services like remote monitoring, reporting, management, a support plan, and data backup. In fact, you can easily exceed the monthly cost of Omnicore, which includes all these services and more. With Omnicore packages starting at $500/month, you could enjoy a stress-free network with one easy-to-budget monthly payment.
Because TechCentral is part of the Henry Schein One family, we have the buying power; agreements with industry leaders like Dell, HP, and WatchGuard; and the ability to deliver, support, and back up the OmniCore solution. It’s time to stop stressing about your practice’s IT and get back to doing what you love–dentistry.
