SpringCharts Exchange for MacPractice

January 2, 2006 - Houston, TX - Spring Medical Systems announced today that its new SpringCharts Exchange for MacPractice MD will ship on January 16th. SpringCharts Exchange provides seamless data integration between SpringCharts EHR (electronic health record) and the MacPractice MD practice management system (PMS) to provide better data consistency within the practice and to dramatically reduce redundant data entry and subsequent errors.

When combined with SpringCharts and MacPractice MD, SpringCharts Exchange proves a total data solution that enables a Mac-based practice to manage all clinical and business data in one integrated system that:

  • Provides reliable data exchange between EHR & PMS
  • Eliminates redundant re-keying of data into multiple systems
  • Enables dramatically improved charting, billing and claims

Attendees of the MacWorld Expo in San Francisco, (January 9th thru 13th), can get a first look at the SpringCharts Exchange for MacPractice Solution in action in the MacPractice booth (#107). In addition, Spring Medical Systems and MacPractice, Inc. will be offering pre-release "show special" pricing for MacWorld attendees.

Dr. David Kibbe, Director of the Center for Health information Technology, (American Academy of Family Physicians), cited the new release as significant for Mac-based medical practices, saying, "This is great news for those practices that depend on the Macintosh as their computing platform of choice. Macs are a great fit for medical practices, and complete Mac-based solutions like these may prompt more practices to implement Electronic Health Records sooner - and we are committed to assisting all of our members to adopt EHR as quickly as possible."

Spring Medical President and CEO, Jack Smyth, described the new release as a first for medical practices running Macs. "More and more practices are realizing that an integrated front and back office solution that combines Electronic Health Records with a Practice Management System is critical to their success. With the release of SpringCharts Exchange for MacPractice, we can now offer the first best-of-breed integrated medical office technology solution for the Mac."

Mark Hollis, President of MacPractice, Inc., said "We are excited that SpringCharts Exchange for MacPractice MD is now available. Our customers are anxiously awaiting this integration. Undoubtedly our momentum in the marketplace and the adoption of MacPractice MD by physicians who prefer Macintosh will accelerate even more rapidly as a result."
