Lincoln, NE July 4, 2005 - MacPractice, Inc. releases MacPractice MD for physicians, MacPractice DC for chiropractors, and MacPractice DDS for dentists, version 1.5. This event makes MacPractice the provider of the first full-fledged healthcare practice management software applications designed especially for Mac OS X for physicians, chiropractors and dentists. MacPractice declares "Independence Day from Mac OS 9" for doctors.
MacPractice 1.0 shipped just 3 months ago. More than 100 doctor's offices now use 1.0. These offices will be the first to get 1.5. The addition of scheduling, e-claims, images, and integrated word processing (later in July), perio charting, and many enhancements to the original release of MacPractice's applications makes them suitable for use by hundreds more. More than 700 offices, already MacPractice clients for support of MediMac, ChiroMac, and DentalMac, which are Mac OS 9 programs, are expected to migrate over the next few months.
MacPractice Scheduling interfaces with iCal, providing doctors and dentists the ability to have their schedule of appointments on an iPod, phone, Palm, or PowerBook, .mac or the Internet. MacPractice's EClaims partners provide online eligibility verification, claim tracking, electronic referrals (medical), insurance estimation (dental), and claims transmission via Internet or modem.
MacPractice DDS Perio Charting Ability premiers July 7 in Orlando at the Florida National Dental Congress. Also in July, MacPractice plans to work with Apple to leverage Mac OS X technology to make Perio Charting voice-activated. MacPractice DDS will integrate with RSV Mac and other digital radiography solutions this summer.
MacPractice MD will integrate with SpringCharts? EMR, an innovative solution from Spring Medical combining rich functionality and intuitive ease of use, this summer, to provide the first affordable, comprehensive Mac OS X practice management and EMR solution for physicians.
