Lincoln, NE, October 14, 2008 - MacPractice, Inc., the leading Macintosh practice management and clinical applications developer, announces the release of MacPractice 3.5.
While adding many new features to MacPractice 3.1, and continuously updating to keep it current for ever-changing governmental regulations, MacPractice developers have been creating MacPractice 3.5 since the release of Leopard a year ago. MacPractice 3.5 establishes a new foundation for many current and future enhancements and additions to the capabilities available to physicians, dentists, chiropractors and optometrists who prefer to use Macs to manage their practice.
MacPractice 3.5 is the first version of MacPractice software developed specifically for Leopard. Through the middle of 2009 MacPractice will continue to support users of version 3.1, which is Leopard and Tiger compatible. Fifty MacPractice users will be updated to 3.5 this week. Starting next week, all new clients will receive 3.5, and MacPractice will initiate the process of gradually updating its 15,000 MacPractice users.
A new MacPractice server application and software architecture is introduced with 3.5. Both server and terminal applications may be installed on the MacPractice server. In small and medium sized offices, this eliminates the necessity for a higher cost, dedicated Mac server and more costly Mac OS X Server operating system. The MacPractice server application manages all of the documents, x-rays, and photos associated with patients stored outside the MySQL 5 database.
Numerous announcements will be made by MacPractice over the next few days and weeks about new capabilities introduced with MacPractice 3.5, including a new Kiosk with signature pad, enhanced EMR and EDR (Electronic Dental Record) Narratives and Note integration and charge posting, ePrescribe medications list, integration with AutoRemind™, direct integration with SuniRay™ digital x-ray sensor, and enhanced MacPractice DR (Digital Radiography) and Imaging (medical).
"MacPractice 3.5 represents a major evolutionary step for MacPractice products. We look forward to rolling out all the new capabilities made available to our users with the introduction of 3.5," stated Mark Hollis, President and co-founder of MacPractice.

MacPractice, Inc. also supports the use of DentalMac, MediMac and ChiroMac.
MacPractice, Inc. is a client-centric practice management and clinical software development firm, comprised of highly experienced and caring individuals, dedicated to the development and support of best-of-class Macintosh software, hardware and associated services for physicians, dentists, and chiropractors.
