As your orthodontics practice relies more and more on digital systems, the higher level of IT support you’ll need to keep your systems optimized and secure. Have you considered managed IT services?
Just like patients need expert care from orthodontists like you, your IT systems need expert maintenance from the NOVA Computer Solutions team.
The fact is that, while technology helps the healthcare industry through the convenience of data storage and access, it also presents serious cybersecurity risks – healthcare organizations make up 33% of all cybercrime incidents across all industries.

Don’t make the mistake of assuming that just because you’re not a major hospital that you aren’t a potential victim – data is data. If you’re an easy target, cybercriminals will find your orthodontics practice.
If you want to take advantage of the benefits that modern healthcare technology has to offer, then you have a responsibility to make sure it’s properly secured against today’s more common cybercrime threats.

Are you sure you’re safe from attacks like these?
Depending on your experience with IT support so far, you may not know what is available to you. The old model was essentially an hourly support service. This traditional style of outsourced IT services works by fixing your computers once they’re broken.

The hourly model no longer works for businesses today.
