IRVINE, Calif., Nov. 7 /PRNewswire/ -- Is it possible to deliver high-quality dental care at affordable prices? Venture Health Group believes it is possible and is out to prove it on a large scale.
Venture Health Group (VHG), headquartered in Monterey Park, California, provides business, technology and information management support services to dentists. It is a fast-growing company with an aggressive business plan.
"Our primary focus," says Eric Kaw, CEO of VHG, "is to improve the dental health care delivery system. It's simple, really - we relieve dentists of any administrative burdens, we give them leading-edge equipment, and we use the best available information management technology to squeeze out many of the inefficiencies seen in a typical dentist office. The end result is that providers can treat their patients more effectively at affordable prices, while actually increasing their income."
But, what Kaw describes as simple has been elusive to many. "Our difference, our advantage," he continues, "is that we recognize that the newest advancements in technology, when used intelligently, can significantly increase efficiencies throughout the entire delivery system. In most dental practices, the inefficiencies created by the use of older technology cascade throughout the entire organization. It's a case of the tail wagging the dog."
VHG's choice of Planet DDS web-based software is right in line with its philosophy of using leading-edge technology to maximize effectiveness and minimize expense.
According to Richard Lee, CEO of Planet DDS, "It's a joy to work with VHG. We didn't need to show them why Internet technology is ideal for geographically dispersed dental groups. They already understood it. We started with our standard web-based practice management application, called Denticon, and modified it to meet their needs. They have some great ideas - very innovative."
Why does web-based practice management software give VHG an advantage?
"The Internet allows data to be stored in a central location on a real-time basis," says Lee. "This means that anyone, with proper security clearance, can access the data at any time from anywhere. This opens a whole new world of management and professional collaboration possibilities. Many tasks that traditionally require in-office staff can now be performed centrally from literally anywhere in the world. Patient records, which can be paperless in Denticon, are accessible to any provider throughout the entire organization, no matter where they are."
