​Joanna Goddard of ND Communications & Sara Martin of Medifinance, explore the importance of a secure telecoms solution in todays modern practice.

Dental practices in the UK have been acting fast to keep their patient data protected and secure. Many are seeking information about financing telephony upgrades to become Secure Comms systems. This reduces the risk in their business as the evolving threat of data breach in today's digital era continues to sweep healthcare organisations.

Many Dental Professionals have been engaging Finance Brokers who specialise in helping healthcare professionals. This can include financing telecoms system upgrades to make them secure. Medifinance is a well-established broker that provides a whole range of finance products for Dental practices, including commercial mortgages, tax loans, equipment finance, refurbishment and personal loans, insurance services, personal mortgages and international money transfers.

Here are 3 key tips on how to approach funding the upgrading of your telecoms systems; 

  • After or in consultation with your accountant, it is often effective to contact a specialist commercial Finance Broker to take advantage of their knowledge of specific Lenders and their experience and skills in managing such a project.

  • As well as ensuring the correct amount of funding is available, this is a good time to consider whether all of your equipment is up to date including your telecommunications and hosting systems, IT systems, mobiles and software. 

  • Take stock of everything, to provide a clear brief of what you need to address. A reputable telecoms or IT supplier will be able to give you a quote to enable you to liaise effectively with your accountant and finance broker about 'future proofing'.
