An apple a day may be said to keep the doctor away, but more and more doctors are demanding Apple technology in their practices. Doctors (along with everyone else) have iMacs, iPhones, and other Apple products at home because of the user-friendly design, ease of use, and longevity. Over 64% of the US population now owns an Apple product of some kind (iPhone, iMac, iPad, and so on) and the average American household owns 2.6 Apple products.
Doctors want to run their practices with Apple technology, too. Fortunately, it has never been more accessible or more affordable. The doctors that have already made the switch cite the easy setup, the lower total cost of ownership, and happier staff and workplace as the main reasons for switching platforms. Another change driving more practices to run on Macs is the wide availability of vital practice peripherals that run effortlessly and efficiently on a Mac. For example, Mac-compatible digital radiography, sensors, pans, cephs, and 3D equipment have come a long way for dentists that prefer Apple products.
For practices that want to go paperless, Macs make it easy to streamline your practice with electronic health records. Apple also has an advantage on viruses and malware, and their durability means you don’t have to replace your computers as frequently as PC practices.
You can’t run a practice without dependable computers and robust software that complements your growing practice. When you’re done with PC crashes and malware, the time has never been better to make the switch to Mac computers and Apple technology in your practice.
