MacPractice EMR update simplifies patient billing

Med records app updated

MacPractice, which supplies Mac-based software for doctors, chiropractors and dentists, has updated its medical records software. MacPractice EMR now allows doctors to record patient visits with procedure codes and diagnoses, simplifying the billing process. The company says it has also improved the process of creating and sharing narrative medical reports.

The ability to add procedure codes provides direct communication between the treatment and billing areas of a medical practice, reducing the need for additional paperwork and speeding the payment process. Information collected during a patient visit can be quickly merged into a doctor's narrative medical report. A built-in word processor allows a doctor to generate a cover letter and envelope to send the report to a referring physician.

The company says 300 of its 2300 customers using MacPractice have added EMR functionality since it was introduced last December. Customers can create their own medical forms templates, and share them with other practices to reduce costs.

MacPractice EMR for MacPractice MD or McPractice 20/20 is available through December 31, 2008 for $3500 plus $500 annually for support and updates. The software requires Mac OS X 10.4 or higher.
