Lincoln, NE February 13, 2006 - MacPractice, Inc., developer of MacPractice MD for physicians, MacPractice DC for chiropractors, and MacPractice DDS for dentists, full-fledged healthcare practice management software applications designed especially for Mac OS X for PowerPC and Intel, will release MacPractice 2.0 on March 1.
"There are 20 completely new and enhanced Abilities in MacPractice 2.0. Some have the potential to completely change how a doctor's office works. Our Attachments Ability, as one example, is a huge advance toward a paperless office for physicians, dentists and chiropractors. It is now possible to attach any file of any type to a patient's record. Dentists who attend Chicago Midwinter, February 24-26, are invited to attend a preview of MacPractice 2.0 in the MacPractice Hospitality Suite," said Mark Hollis, President.
MacPractice users may now attach an x-ray, photo, video, PDF, Word, Excel or any other file in native format to a patient with MacPractice's new Attachments Ability. MacPractice supports a direct interface with Fujitsu's, small footprint ScanSnap. Every scanner that supports Mac OS X should work with this new Ability as well.
Scheduling Transparencies is a new tool used to lay a color-coded template with block times on top of a multi-resource MacPractice office schedule. Blocks can indicate provider, equipment or room availability, a certain procedure to be performed in that time block, etc.
It is now possible to schedule multiple appointments for a patient at the same time.
MacPractice 2.0 can send deposit ticket information to MYOB or QuickBooks.
Users may create a reminder to themselves or another to perform a task on a particular day, and Schedule Reminders will alert the user when the day arrives.
