Now that the dental industry is close to the July patient recall for the year 2000, testing every IBM-compatible computer in the practice for Y2K compliance is critical.
Following steps to educate the industry, Computer Age Dentist now offers a free Y2K Test Disk to help dental staffs make certain their computers are year-2000 compliant. The company has licensed the test, called YMARK2000, from NSTL, the world`s leading independent testing facility for the computer industry.
NSTL`s Year 2000 Hardware Compliance Program is an open-industry standard to verify proper date-handling by PC systems during the rollover to the year 2000. YMARK2000, which must be run from the DOS prompt, tests the BIOS and the real-time clock`s functionality. Operating systems and applications must be tested separately.
