PattLock is an online backup service from Patterson Dental that protects and secures patient and practice information. Compatible with all files types and all practice management software systems, including Eaglesoft Practice Management Software, PattLock is an affordable and user-friendly addition to any existing backup solution.

PattLock uses an Internet connection to transmit data and store it in a safe location where it can be retrieved with just a few mouse clicks. This technology provides an array of notable features, including:

  • Customizable scheduling for exactly when and how often data is backed up.
  • Data restoration in the same format as it was originally saved.
  • Backup verification to confirm that all data was successfully transferred.
  • Access to Patterson Dental’s legendary technical support if issues arise.

PattLock uses the highest level of security to protect your data, ensuring that only you and your staff have access to it. Data is secured by username and password, allowing dental professionals to control exactly who has access to files and accounts. In addition, a secure level of data encryption ensures no one will be able to view your data when it is on the PattLock servers.

“Creating a secure system for backing up computer data was a natural fit for Patterson Dental,” said Jana Berghoff, corporate technology marketing manager. “At Patterson, we are committed to supporting the dental community by providing the most innovative technology on the market. PattLock is a perfect extension of this commitment and to the Patterson Technology Suite as it brings another dependable service to dental practices everywhere.”

PattLock offers dental professionals the same dependability and ease of use they have come to expect from Patterson Dental and because PattLock is also powered by DataHEALTH, a fully accredited URAC HIPAA Security Business Associate, you can rest assured that all appropriate steps are being taken to safeguard your protected health information.

Data storage equipment is housed in centers with high-tech security measures, fire suppression and climate control. As an added precaution, data is also backed up to a second storage center. With numerous security steps in place, PattLock allows dental practices to be at ease about the safety and security of their files for only a low monthly fee.
