Lincoln, NE, September 30, 2009 - MacPractice, Inc., the leading Mac developer of practice management and clinical applications, announces the release of the MacPractice iPhone Interface 2.0 with remote charge posting, staff and doctor reminders, practice management reports and access to referring doctors.
MacPractice iPhone Interface 2.0 sports a cleaner, more intuitive user interface resembling MacPractice MD, DDS, DC and 20/20. A physician, dentist, chiropractor or optometrist can connect to their office database to access their schedule and any patient record before calling or emailing the patient from the iPhone. Patient photos, alerts, prescription history, and appointment history are all available. The patient's address is linked to Google Maps.
MacPractice iPhone Interface 2.0 introduces access to referring doctors, a new calendar, optimized performance, updated security features, and new user preferences.
Reminders on the iPhone create MacPractice Reminders in the office for staff and providers, i.e. to request an appointment or as a way to make a clinical note for MacPractice EMR. A doctor may monitor what is happening in the office from the hospital or the golf course by viewing up-to-date daily management reports.
Doctors performing hospital rounds or seeing patients at a remote location can now enter patients and post procedures and diagnoses into MacPractice from their iPhone (requires the MacPractice HL7 Interface). Entering planned treatment will be added in version 2.1.
The iPhone Interface, which can also be used in Safari on any Mac or PC desktop, portable or tablet computer, requires MacPractice MD, DC, DDS, or 20/20, version 3.6. MacPractice recommends that users set up a VPN for security.
Introductory pricing for MacPractice iPhone Interface 2.0 is $800 for current MacPractice users and $200 annually for support and updates. Those who purchase the Interface with MacPractice MD, DC, DDS, or 20/20 receive a $300 discount. Those who purchased MacPractice in 2009 are also eligible for the $300 discount. MacPractice iPhone Interface 2.0 is free to current users (the HL7 Interface must be purchased for posting procedures).
"We leverage innovative, unique Apple technology to put new productivity-enhancing tools literally in the hands of physicians, dentists, chiropractors and optometrists on iPhones, as well as Mac and PC desktops and laptops," said Mark Hollis, MacPractice's President.
