UPDATE: MacPractice Releases HIPAA-Compliant Patient Check In App for iPad and iPad mini

LINCOLN, NE -- (Marketwire) -- 12/07/12 -- MacPractice, the leading Apple developer of practice management and clinical software for doctors' offices that use Macs, iPhones and iPads, today announced the release of the MacPractice Patient Check In App for iPad and iPad mini. The new App, which is fully integrated with MacPractice MD, DDS, DC and 20/20 practice management software, automates patient check-in procedures and helps ensure HIPAA compliance.

"At many doctors' offices, patients check in by writing their name, arrival time and the reason for the visit by hand on a sign-in sheet at the office reception window," said Mark Hollis, CEO of MacPractice. "This is a problem from a HIPAA compliance perspective since sensitive data is publicly displayed. It's also inefficient because the office staff has to then re-enter the information into the practice management system."

The MacPractice Patient Check In App for iPad and iPad mini can be downloaded from Apple's App Store and is free for users of Scheduling in the recently released version 4.2 of MacPractice MD, DDS, DC and 20/20. Patient Check In streamlines the check-in process and helps doctors' offices achieve HIPAA compliance by replacing the manual sign-in sheet with a custom-designed iPad App. Patients enter their identifying information on the iPad or iPad mini, which automatically records their arrival time and updates their appointment status in the practice management system, alerting clinicians to the patient's arrival.

With the MacPractice Patient Check In App for iPad and iPad mini, private patient information is no longer publicly displayed, which facilitates HIPAA compliance.

The new MacPractice Patient Check In App for iPad and iPad mini is the latest innovation from MacPractice, which leverages Apple's legendary ease of use, stability and low-cost maintenance to create affordable, intuitive, flexible, Mac-native software for doctors.

Used by 15,000 providers, MacPractice combines a state-of-the-art ONC-ATCB 2011-2012 Certified EHR/EMR solution with practice management tools in an easy-to-use, intuitive system to enhance patient care, efficiency and productivity.
