Using your iPhone for treatment planning

​Today I have “written” my ezine and three magazine articles using my iPhone to dictate voice notes in Evernote, then emailing them to Phillippa for transcription and forwarding to the publishers.

It occurs that a dentist could dictate a treatment plan via iPhone in exactly the same way – and that, using Snagit picture capture (as above), salient features from your practice management software, digital photos and x-rays could be added quickly and without major expense.

Add Camtasia to bring it all to life with a video commentary for the treatment plan.

What a fantastic way to differentiate yourself from the competition and make more effective use of your time.
