MacPractice gains HL7
MacPractice has added HL7 support to its line of products for medical professionals, including MacPractice MD for physicians, MacPractice DDS for dentists, MacPractice DC for chiropractors, and MacPractice 20/20 for optometrists. The new release can interact with Clinical Labs, EMR software, third party medical and dental digital imaging solutions, and medical and dental solutions from the many other healthcare vendors whose products support industry standard HL7. The new releases include bidirectional HL7 messaging. Two of MacPractice's alliance partners, Spring Medical and ComChart plan to use this capability to pass charges created in their SpringCharts EMR and ComChart software to MacPractice to eliminate errors and improve efficiency.
