MacPractice Previews ICD-10, MacPractice EHR/iEHR at HIMSS

MacPractice MD 4.8 will be submitted for 2014 CEHRT certification 1st quarter, 2014

LINCOLN, Neb., Feb. 24, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- MacPractice, the leading Apple developer of OS X and iOS native software for doctors who prefer to use Macs, iPads, and iPhones, will preview new MacPractice EHR Ability in MacPractice MD, DC, 20/10 and DDS at the upcoming HIMSS conference in the Interoperability Showcase. The solution interoperates with MacPractice's iEHR and Clipboard apps for iPad, and ICD-10 code mapping with ICD-9 and SNOMED. MacPractice will showcase the solution's capabilities at booth #9001-108 during the HIMSS show held February 23rd to 27th in Orlando.

MacPractice EHR and ICD-10 will be available this spring in MacPractice 4.8, which MacPractice is internally testing before requesting a certification test date later this quarter.

The MacPractice Environment is a suite of native OS X practice management and clinical software for Macs that interoperates with MacPractice's native iOS 7 apps designed for iPad, including Patient Check In, MacPractice Clipboard and MacPractice iEHR. The bi-directional exchange of data between MacPractice's applications, combined with the ability for the patient to enter demographic and clinical data, take their own photo, and sign their HIPAA and release forms, produces an improved overall patient in-office experience while enhancing staff and doctor efficiency and productivity.

"15,000 providers use MacPractice EMR, which we introduced in 2007.  After Apple's introduction of the iPad, we responded to the strong interest from doctors in a native EHR app with the introduction of MacPractice iEHR for iPad. iEHR has been very well received, but quite a few users have expressed interest in being able to use both the iPad for handheld convenience in conjunction with their Mac, which has a larger desktop, for enhanced productivity. With MacPractice EHR, our clients can begin recording the patient's visit on the iPad and finish on their Mac, or vice versa, giving them the best of both worlds," says MacPractice's CEO, Mark Hollis.

"As an American, I am afraid that the fear of regulation and the purported complexity of ICD-10 threatens to drive some doctors out of private practice and into early retirement. I don't think that Americans can tolerate the shortage of quality care options that could result. ICD-10 is just not that difficult. We are happy to preview ICD-10 and ICD-10 mapping to ICD-9 and SNOMED in MacPractice at HIMSS. We want to do our part to encourage and support doctors, especially those in private practice, by supplying them with easy to use tools that take advantage of Apple's easiest to use technology with the lowest IT cost of any practice management or clinical system."

MacPractice invites those who can't make it to Orlando for HIMSS to register at MacPractice.com to view demo videos of all of MacPractice's products or participate in a webinar. Local representation, training and installation is available in the US, UK and Australia. MacPractice products are used in 29 countries, but they are developed and supported in Lincoln, NE, USA.
