LINCOLN, Neb., Dec. 15, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- MacPractice provides compatibility with macOS Sierra and El Capitan for MacPractice MD, DDS, DC and 20/20 practice management and clinical software for physicians, dentists, chiropractors, and eye care professionals. MacPractice has been compatible with El Capitan since December of 2015.
Doctors, who wish to take advantage of Section 179 at this time of the year to reduce their 2016 taxes or who want to escape the threat of Ransomware and other malware on Windows and on hosted servers in a cloud in 2017, can purchase secure macOS and iOS native MacPractice software with the lowest total cost of ownership, to run on new Macs, iPads and iPhones from Apple.
MacPractice supports 30,000 users in 25 countries, who have been invited to participate in a controlled rollout of the new software to assure the quality and support of the update. MacPractice users' annual fee includes all updates as well as unlimited 5 star technical support by telephone, live chat, email or by messaging from within their software. MacPractice's 135 corporate employees, all in their Lincoln office, are primarily developers and support personnel who pride themselves on delivering the best personal customer support experience, an anomaly in today's world of Internet health care startups.
MacPractice Practice Consultants are full-time field representatives who provide one-on-one sales presentations, installation and training services and on-site consultation as needed. Most of them have more than 25 years of experience advising and working with doctors who prefer to use Macs, working exclusively with MacPractice. Their business is dedicated to servicing MacPractice customers and prospective customers.
Together MacPractice and MacPractice Practice Consultants take the best of care of MacPractice users, supplying all the services necessary for a doctor's office to be successful with MacPractice. Most MacPractice users do not require a contractual relationship with IT vendors and spend no more than a few hundred dollars per year for onsite IT support, but MacPractice Practice Consultants and MacPractice support team members triage with IT support at a doctor's request.
"We've always known that using Macs in a doctor's office is a money-saving proposition because of quality, ease of use, dependability, etc., but we are very excited that IBM, which recently gave their employees the opportunity to choose their platform themselves, have concluded that PCs are 3X more expensive to manage than Macs," said Mark Hollis, MacPractice's CEO. "It is extremely challenging to keep up with Apple, but we are happy to deliver Sierra compatibility to doctors' offices."
Doctors and staff who are the sole users of a Mac and who have an iWatch can configure Sierra so the operating system senses their proximity and logs them in or out. This is a unique Apple advantage available to MacPractice users.
MacPractice uses an all-in-one design philosophy to assist practices to more easily house and protect their patient's identity and health information. MacPractice collaborates with numerous third party vendors to integrate Mac native products and services, such as digital imaging, eclaims, integrated network fax and integrated secure messaging, for enhanced practice productivity and efficiency. MacPractice also provides bridges to Windows solutions.
While third party products and services are compatible with El Capitan, they may not yet be compatible with Sierra. Therefore MacPractice recommends users verify the compatibility of all software and hardware before upgrading a MacPractice terminal to Sierra. The current release of MacPractice makes it possible for clients to use a heterogeneous network of Macs with El Capitan and/or Sierra. This will help some doctors upgrade to the latest and greatest from MacPractice without waiting for all vendors to provide compatibility for Sierra.
MacPractice Online Registration and EHR Forms, Online Scheduling, and Patient Portal services are compatible with Sierra and of course MacPractice Patient Check In, MacPractice Clipboard and MacPractice iEHR Apps for iPad are compatible with iOS 10.
