Dental Industry Firsts Include Fully Integrated, Secure, HIPAA Compliant Communications, Integrated Online Patient Services and Reputation Marketing

LINCOLN, Neb., Aug. 19, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- MacPractice DDS 5.1 features next generation dental charting and imaging, and dental industry first integrated HIPAA compliant communication, faxing, and Reputation Marketing powered by BirdEye.

The leading OS X native dental software, ICD-10 capable MacPractice 5.1 is compatible with Yosemite (required for charting) and Mavericks and interoperates with MacPractice's iOS 8 compatible Patient Check In, Clipboard, and iEHR Apps for iPad, as well MacPractice Interface for iPad and MacPractice Interface for iPhone.

"We've studied the market and collaborated with our clients. MacPractice DDS 5.1 has the best dental charting and online patient services, including HIPAA compliant secure messaging," said Mark Hollis, MacPractice co-founder and CEO.

"With MacPractice DDS, patients can use iPads as well as our integrated online patient services to enter demographics and clinical information. Also dentists and hygienists can review patient-entered structured data, visit notes, photos, and x-rays on an iPad with their patient. With MacPractice 5.1, dentists avoid expensive web services contracts using superior online solutions available at a lower cost, with superior software integration, support, and functionality that can only be provided by their practice management software developer."

MacPractice's updated clinical abilities include Perio 2, Restorative 2, and DR 2 (Digital Radiography / Photo). Scheduling has also been rewritten to boost speed and performance in the office, especially for remote offices.

MacPractice 5.1 sets a new standard for integrated practice communications. Besides integrated faxing and HIPAA secure messaging powered by Updox and MacPractice, MacPractice plans to provide every service available from third parties to its users at a lower cost and with tighter integration and greater security, along with web services not available from other vendors:

Avoid HIPAA penalties up to $50,000 per incident (e.g. per single noncompliant email or text) in 2015, which is being called The Year of Audits, by using integrated HIPAA compliant, secure communication services.

For practices without a web site, MacPractice plans to create and host a one-page site for $10 monthly. MacPractice 5.1 has new practice management reports requested by dentists. MacPractice's preferred vendor for phone, text, and/or email patient reminders is AutoRemind, which is tightly integrated with the MacPractice Schedule and includes automatic appointment status updates. MacPractice partners with Transworld to provide in-application collection services superior to those offered by web services that cannot write back to practice management software.
