MacPractice Updates Beta Clients and Provides Sierra Compatibility for MacPractice MD, DDS, DC and 20/20
December 5, 2016
Lincoln, NE - MacPractice announced today that it is providing its beta clients with macOS Sierra and El Capitan compatible versions of macOS native MacPractice MD, DDS, DC and 20/20 software. Earlier versions of MacPractice have been compatible with El Capitan since December of 2015. This makes it possible for MacPractice users who want or need new Macs to purchase them from Apple, as new Macs come with Sierra pre-installed.
Providers and staff who are the sole users of a Mac and who have an Apple Watch can configure Sierra so the operating system senses their proximity and logs them in or out. This is a unique Apple advantage available to MacPractice users.
Apple publicly released macOS Sierra on September 20, its most recent update is version 10.12.1, and 10.12.1 beta 5 was released to developers and public beta testers in October. MacPractice does not recommend that providers using MacPractice software install beta software on the same computer with MacPractice.
MacPractice uses an all-in-one design philosophy to assist practices to more easily house and protect their patient’s identity and health information. MacPractice collaborates with numerous third party vendors to integrate Mac native products and services, such as digital imaging, eclaims, integrated network fax and integrated secure messaging, for enhanced practice productivity and efficiency. MacPractice also provides bridges to Windows solutions.
While third party products and services are compatible with El Capitan, they may not yet be compatible with Sierra. Therefore MacPractice recommends users verify the compatibility of all software and hardware before upgrading a MacPractice terminal to Sierra. The current release of MacPractice makes it possible for clients to use a heterogeneous network of Macs with El Capitan and/or Sierra. This will help some providers upgrade to the latest and greatest from MacPractice without waiting for all vendors prove compatibility for Sierra.
MacPractice Online Registration and EHR Forms, Online Scheduling, and Patient Portal services are compatible with Sierra and of course MacPractice Patient Check In, MacPractice Clipboard and MacPractice iEHR Apps for iPad are compatible with iOS 10.
