New Newsletter Format
This month I have decided on a slightly different format. Rather than have the full article in the newsletter I have added links to the downloadable documents. This way I hope that it will be more efficient to read. The documents can be printed off separately so you can read the hard copy version.
Computers & IT: Distributed Environments Part 2
This is the second part of Richard Rees's discussion. Last month he discussed Terminal services. This month will be Remote Web Workplace.
What I have done this month is attached the discussion as a PDF file. There is a fair bit of content and to be absorbed efficiently bring up the PDF file of last month's article and this month's in one document. It will make more sense if you read them both together. This is essential reading for those that want to be able to access practice files from another location.

The simple answer is buy the equipment, use it and charge for it. The overwhelming majority of your patients will appreciate it.
