MacPractice 1.8 released
MacPractice today released version 1.8 of its for chiropractors. The healthcare practice management software applications designed specifically for Mac OS X adds new scheduling features, including the ability to associate as many as four colors with an appointment to indicate status, type, alert, and more. The update adds new managers to facilitate the posting of bulk insurance payments, a major challenge for healthcare providers. MacPractice has added a Claim Generator to print batches of paper claims and create batches of eclaims for those procedures for which claims were not created as procedures were posted. MacPractice MD pricing starts at $2,000, while MacPractice DDS and DC start at $1,500 for a single user license. MacPractice software requires MySQL (system requirements were unavailable).
SuperCodes enhance the software for providers who commonly perform multiple procedures for a patient in one visit; when posting, the entry of one SuperCode can generate a predetermined set of procedures and diagnosis simultaneously.
The update enhances many areas of MacPractice software including eclaims, Notes and Rx. Dental offices can create CareSlips (encounter forms) for scheduled patients, while Physicians can print or eclaim UB92 forms for hospital billing. Version 1.8 adds the ability to print mail and chart labels, as well as postcards for appointment reminders and recalls.
