MacPractice DC 5 Announced with MacPractice EMR and New EHR/iEHR

iOS 8 and Yosemite Compatible, Secure Messaging, ICD-10, Patient Portal, Online Registration

October 23, 2014, Lincoln, NE - MacPractice announced MacPractice DC 5. In addition to MacPractice EMR, Yosemite and Mavericks compatible MacPractice DC 5 offers a new MacPractice EHR Ability that interoperates with MacPractice's iOS 8 compatible iEHR, Clipboard and Patient Check In apps for iPad, and features ICD-10 code mapping with ICD-9 and SNOMED, an updated Patient PHI Portal, secure messaging, Kiosk 2, and online registration.

"MacPractice 5 represents a leap forward for all doctors who prefer the reliability and ease of use of Macs in their offices with the support of an established US vendor. 2014 Edition Certified MacPractice DC MU 5.0 make Apple technology relevant for US chiropractors who wish to qualify for government incentives for the adoption and Meaningful Use of electronic health records," said MacPractice's CEO Mark Hollis.

"Although MacPractice clients include practices and clinics with 50 or more users, we design our software primarily to support practices with just one doctor or a few doctors. Smaller practices can't afford the IT costs commonly associated with PC solutions. MacPractice does not require a dedicated server for less than 25 simultaneous users, nor does it require a 'server' operating system. When the Internet is down or slow, MacPractice is 'up and running.' Most offices using MacPractice do not retain outside IT services. Many users report paying no more than $300-$500 annually for on-site IT service versus the $8,000-$15,000 they used to spend for their retired PC system."

Among many new features, MacPractice DC 5 offers:

  • New EHR desktop companion to iEHR for iPad
  • 2 EHRs for the price of 1: EMR plus EHR for OS X/iEHR for iPad
  • Upgraded Patient PHI (Protected Health Information) Portal
  • Online Registration with EHR Forms
  • HIPAA Secure Messaging - doctor and patient, doctor to doctor
  • Kiosk 2 works with EMR for patient registration and clinical forms
  • ICD-9, ICD-10, SNOMED capable
  • Enhanced Data Security, integrity and Audit Trail
  • iOS 8 compatible Check In, Clipboard, iEHR apps for iPad
  • iOS 8 compatible MacPractice Interface with ePrescribe for iPad
  • iOS 8 compatible MacPractice Interface for iPhone

With MacPractice EHR/iEHR, clinicians can begin recording the patient's visit on the iPad and finish on their Mac, or vice versa, giving them the best of both worlds. There are 15,000 providers who use MacPractice EMR, which was introduced in 2007. MacPractice EMR and EHR are ICD-10 capable. MacPractice is presently providing both EHR and EMR for the cost of just EMR, giving doctors the option to use either or both for the cost of one.
