MacPractice beta ships for Mac OS X; medical, dental and chiropractic practice management software

This week MacPractice, Inc. is shipping the beta version of all new Mac OS X practice management software for doctors’ offices, MacPractice MD for physicians, MacPractice DDS for dentists and MacPractice DC for Chiropractors, on schedule as promised, to pre-selected, qualified beta customers.

Beta clients will use a new MacPractice software installer, and the first release of a data migrator to transfer their MediMac, DentalMac or ChiroMac patient records into MacPractice software. In the future, this migrator will help users of any other practice management application to get patient data they have collected over years easily into MacPractice MD, DDS or DC.

MacPractice expects MacPractice MD, DDS and DC to be out of beta and shipping in the 1st quarter of 2005. Scheduling and EClaims will be added in the 2nd quarter. A free offer of MacPractice shipping software, including scheduling and EClaims, for customers who subscribe to telephone support from MacPractice for MediMac, DentalMac or ChiroMac has been extended to January 31, 2005. The new MacPractice programs are designed and developed by a team of 11 software engineers, at the direction of Patrick Clyne, the original designer/developer of MediMac, ChiroMac and DentalMac.

Mark Hollis, President and Director of Customer Relations says, “MediMac, ChiroMac and DentalMac users receive 90% of support calls answered live daily by MacPractice’s expert and highly experienced personnel.”

MacPractice, Inc. is a client-centric practice management software development firm comprised of highly experienced and caring individuals who are dedicated to the development and support of best-of-class Macintosh software, hardware, and associated services for physicians, dentists and chiropractors.

  1. I wish someone would come out with professional tax preparation software for the Mac. I would 86 every PC in my office with glee, maybe even hold a ceremony to mark the auspicious occasion complete with tribal drums, a roasted pig and a sledge hammer.

  2. yes, nopczone, i agree. who says there isn’t a lot of software for the mac?! take that, windows! good tax preparation (and heavy duty accounting) software are needed too, as Bill pointed out.

  3. Bill,

    I have a friend who works at H&R Block’s HQ, doing some sort of software thing. I should ask him why H&R Block doesn’t port their pro software over to the mac…

  4. I would like to call the readers attention to the fact that there already many Mac-centric electronic medical record programs on the market that are well past the beta-stage, including ComChart EMR, which has been under development since 1993 and has been for sold since 1999.

  5. Solar, while MYOB will work for an individual, I’ll do around 700 returns this year (1040, 1041, 1065, 1120, 1120-S, Fla Tangible & Intangible). I need REAL tax preparation software, and no offense to rogozhin, but H&R Block are not what we in the public accounting field consider professional tax preparers, but I do appreciate the sentiment. No, it’s going to take a company like Lacerte (owned by Inuit) or some other big name in tax prep software to put out a quality product OR a group of CPA’s who have the resources to hire the coders and are willing to throw their hats into the ring. I keep my fingers crossed. ” width=”19″ height=”19″ alt=”smile” style=”border:0;” />
