MacPractice believes in the Mac platform and Apple products because we aim to design the most simple, elegant, and powerful practice management and clinical software on the market for physicians, dentists, chiropractors and eye care professionals.
We’ve spent 30 years developing Mac solutions for doctors and working with doctors and other healthcare professionals every step of the way. For healthcare professionals like our clients, Apple products are even more embedded than they are in the general population. A Manhattan Research study claims 75% of U.S. physicians own Apple products. Vitera Healthcare reported that 60% of healthcare professionals use an iPhone for work, and 45% use an iPad. A KLAS study found that 94% of healthcare organizations adopt Apple devices when user preference is a factor. By comparison, Samsung was the second most frequently adopted technology in this study with just 26%.
Overall, 61% of business are offering their employees choice and 73-80% of employees prefer Macs over PCs. IBM says it is saving even up to $535 over four years for every Mac that the company deploys. IBM VP of Workplace as a Service, Fletcher Previn, told a recent conference that 90,000 employees are now using Macs, up from 30,000 in 2015. 100,000 of IBM’s global workforce will be using Macs by the end of the year and the number is climbing.
Given that the demographic of healthcare professionals that rely on Apple products is even higher than that of the general population, market analysts frequently ask, “Why?”
“What is the intersection between Apple products and patient care?”
“Why do providers choose Apple?”
Simplicity! Healthcare is a complex industry. Providing patient care is even more complex. Healthcare software needs to be designed to be simple yet robust. It should not add additional and unnecessary complexity to the task. Many healthcare professionals find that efficient technology can enhance patient care rather than hinder from it. Apple products are a perfect solution for balancing the complexity of your work with devices that offer simplicity, quality and compatibility.
Simplicity means that devices should just work.
This ease is especially appreciated by healthcare professionals that work with complex equipment or treatments.
Quality means that devices should just work well.
Healthcare practitioners demand high quality products. The precision detailing, overall design, and superior build of Apple devices feels more like the FDA regulated dental devices or medical grade equipment that providers already trust.
Compatibility means devices should just work with each other.
Apple products are uniform, and completely compatible with one and other.
Designed with optimal user experience in mind, Apple devices offer maximum compatibility and stress-free configuration.
