MacPractice v2.0 due Mar 1

MacPractice today announced that version 2.0 of its full-fledged healthcare practice management software applications are expected to ship on March 1. MacPractice MD for physicians, MacPractice DC for chiropractors, and MacPractice DDS for dentists, are full-fledged healthcare practice management software applications designed especially for Mac OS X for PowerPC and Intel. The software update will offer 20 completely new and enhanced abilities, including support for file attachments, scheduling, creation of multiple appointments, integration with third-party business applications, built-in reminders, improved help and tutorials, and better integration with Parliant's PhoneHerald phone software.

The new version of the practice management applications support the attachment of virtually any file, including an x-ray, photo, video, PDF, Word, Excel or any other file in native format to a patient's record. In addition, MacPractice supports a direct interface with Fujitsu's small footprint ScanSnap or any other scanner support by Mac OS X.
