Technology Lifecycle of a Patient Pt2
#DSOTech22 is thrilled to announce our second panel moderated by Brian A. Colao of Dykema DSO Industry Group. Brian brings his wit, no-nonsense questions, and experience as one of the most well-respected industry thought leaders in the DSO space.
This panel bookends the conference with the first Technology Lifecyle of a Patient panel. Part two brings frank and in-depth conversations on how DSOs can and should use the latest technology available to increase efficiency through data reporting, AI and automation for billing, and inventory management to control costs – all to maximize productivity and improve revenue.
Brian will also drive the conversation to help determine your #roadblocks that keep you from implementing this technology and how to help you overcome them.
