LINCOLN, Neb., Aug. 19, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- MacPractice, the leading Apple developer of practice management and clinical software for eye care offices that prefer Macs, iPhones and iPads, today announced the release of MacPractice 20/20 5.1. The new version features integrated HIPAA-compliant communication, faxing and Reputation Marketing, powered by BirdEye.
The leading OS X native medical software, ICD-10 capable MacPractice 5.1 is compatible with Yosemite and Mavericks and interoperates with MacPractice's iOS native Patient Check In, Clipboard and iEHR Apps for iPad, as well as MacPractice Interface for iPad and MacPractice Interface for iPhone.
"We've studied the market and collaborated with our clients. MacPractice 20/20 5.1 has the best integrated online patient portal services, including online Registration and EHR Forms and HIPAA-compliant, secure messaging," said Mark Hollis, MacPractice co-founder and CEO.
"With MacPractice 20/20, patients can use iPads as well as our integrated online patient services to enter demographics and clinical information," Hollis continued. "Also, doctors and assistants can review patient-entered structured data, visit notes and images on an iPad with their patient. With MacPractice 5.1, doctors avoid expensive web service contracts by using superior online solutions available at a lower cost, with better software integration, support and functionality that can only be provided by their practice management software developer."
MacPractice's Scheduling Ability has been rewritten to boost speed and performance in the office, especially for remote offices.
MacPractice 5.1 sets a new standard for integrated practice communications. Besides integrated faxing and HIPAA-secure messaging powered by Updox and MacPractice, MacPractice plans to provide to its users every third-party, online service available at a lower cost and with tighter integration and greater security, along with web services not available from other vendors:
Offices can avoid HIPAA penalties of up to $50,000 per incident (e.g., per single noncompliant email or text) in 2015, which is being called The Year of Audits, by secure communication services.
For practices without a website, MacPractice plans to create and host a one-page site for $10 monthly. MacPractice 5.1 has new user-requested practice management reports. MacPractice's preferred vendor for phone, text, and/or email patient reminders is AutoRemind, which is tightly integrated with the MacPractice Schedule and includes automatic appointment status updates. MacPractice partners with Transworld to provide in-application collection services superior to those offered by web services that cannot write back to practice management software.
Purchasers of MacPractice receive $500 off or $1,000 off for an EHR "trade-up" from now until December 31, 2015. MacPractice 20/20 MU 5.0 is ONC-ACB 2014 Edition Certified, and MacPractice will maintain certification for MacPractice 20/20 MU 5.1.
