MacPractice Releases Integrated, Customizable Clipboard 4.2 App and Launches HIPAA-Compliant Patient Check In App for iPad and iPad mini

LINCOLN, Neb., Dec. 13, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- MacPractice, the leading Apple developer of practice management and clinical software for doctors' offices that use Macs, iPhones and iPads, announced today the launch of the MacPractice Clipboard 4.2 and  MacPractice Patient Check In Apps for iPad and iPad mini. Both Apps work with MacPractice MD, DDS, DC and 20/20 desktop practice management and clinical software. The MacPractice Clipboard 4.2 App streamlines patient registration for US users and enables doctors' offices to use customized template forms for the first time. The MacPractice Patient Check In App automates check-in procedures and helps ensure HIPAA compliance. Both Apps leverage the efficiency and ease of use of Apple's innovative iPad and iPad mini to eliminate paper and redundant data entry by patients and staff, save time and reduce the risk of data entry errors.

"The MacPractice Clipboard 4.2 App pre-fills patients' forms for verification and completion by them on the iPad or iPad mini," said Mark Hollis, MacPractice CEO. "Patients register, provide intake information and their medical and social history, sign release forms, and take their own photo, all using Clipboard. Once patients review a summary of what they have entered and are satisfied, they tap a button on the screen to automatically send all their information into the office's MacPractice software.

"Patients love that Clipboard eliminates the necessity of providing the same information multiple times to the office. Staff love that Clipboard eliminates redundancy for them as well and enhances their productivity by making it possible for patient-entered data to be sent directly from the iPad into the patient's record in MacPractice on their desktop.

"Now that doctors' offices can use template forms customized by MacPractice specifically for their practice in addition to standard templates and a growing library of primary and specialty practice templates, every US practice can benefit from using MacPractice Clipboard 4.2."

The MacPractice Clipboard App allows office staff to review insurance information, and established patients can update their own information to ensure that the practice has their most current data. MacPractice plans to release a version of MacPractice Clipboard for its international users in 2013.

The new MacPractice Patient Check In App for iPad and iPad mini also streamlines office procedures – and helps practices ensure they comply with HIPAA regulations.

"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," Hollis continued. "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.

"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, meaning private patient information is no longer publicly displayed."

With MacPractice's Patient Check In App, patients enter their identifying information on the iPad or iPad mini, which automatically records their arrival time and updates their appointment status in MacPractice MD, DDS, DC and 20/20, alerting clinicians to the patient's arrival.

The MacPractice Clipboard 4.2 App for iPad and iPad mini can be downloaded for free from Apple's US App Store. MacPractice MD, DDS, DC and 20/20 users pay a $200 annual support fee to enable their MacPractice software to work with MacPractice Clipboard 4.2, a charge that should quickly be offset by the time savings, elimination of duplicate entry and paper and error reduction benefits the App delivers. The MacPractice's 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.

With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.
Just over a week ago I received a long and loud sustained applause for a presentation I delivered at this year’s Cloud Expo in Santa Clara. I was extremely pleased with the turnout and had some very good conversations with many of the attendees. Over the next few days I had many more meaningful conversations and was not only happy with the results but also learned a few new things. Here is everything I learned in those three days distilled into three short points.

A strange thing is happening along the way to the Internet of Things, namely far too many devices to work with and manage. It has become clear that we'll need much higher efficiency user experiences that can allow us to more easily and scalably work with the thousands of devices that will soon be in each of our lives. Enter the conversational interface revolution, combining bots we can literally talk with, gesture to, and even direct with our thoughts, with embedded artificial intelligence, wh...

In this strange new world where more and more power is drawn from business technology, companies are effectively straddling two paths on the road to innovation and transformation into digital enterprises. The first path is the heritage trail – with “legacy” technology forming the background. Here, extant technologies are transformed by core IT teams to provide more API-driven approaches. Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lea...
What are the new priorities for the connected business? First: businesses need to think differently about the types of connections they will need to make – these span well beyond the traditional app to app into more modern forms of integration including SaaS integrations, mobile integrations, APIs, device integration and Big Data integration. It’s important these are unified together vs. doing them all piecemeal. Second, these types of connections need to be simple to design, adapt and configure...
What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself? As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate. Much like an orchestra without a conductor, without the ability to secure, control, and connect the link between a vehicle’s head unit, devices, and systems and to manage the ...
The Jevons Paradox suggests that when technological advances increase efficiency of a resource, it results in an overall increase in consumption. Writing on the increased use of coal as a result of technological improvements, 19th-century economist William Stanley Jevons found that these improvements led to the development of new ways to utilize coal. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Mark Thiele, Chief Strategy Officer for Apcera, will compare the Jevons Paradox to modern-day enterprise IT, e...
Major trends and emerging technologies – from virtual reality and IoT, to Big Data and algorithms – are helping organizations innovate in the digital era. However, to create real business value, IT must think beyond the ‘what’ of digital transformation to the ‘how’ to harness emerging trends, innovation and disruption. Architecture is the key that underpins and ties all these efforts together. In the digital age, it’s important to invest in architecture, extend the enterprise footprint to the cl...
