ClearPractice, a provider of cloud-based software solutions for physicians and medical groups, today announced the launch of Eden – the company’s comprehensive medical office solution for Apple Mac, iPad and iPhone devices. Eden combines the highly functional, intuitive, and connected nature of Apple computers and devices with a powerful cloud-based practice management and EMR solution enabling medical groups to establish an optimal practice environment.
“There is significant movement within the medical community around the use of Apple computers and devices, yet doctors have had few compelling solutions to choose from that operate within an all-Apple environment,” said Joel Andersen, President of ClearPractice. “Eden provides a powerful medical office solution for those progressive physicians looking to leverage the form, function, and simplicity of Apple technology within their practices.”
Numerous, recent studies indicate interest and adoption of Apple technology among physicians is significant, showing that 27% of primary care and specialty physicians currently own an iPad or tablet computer – a rate five times higher than the general population. Of the remaining physicians who do not yet own mobile devices, 66% are likely to select Apple products. An independent study conducted by ClearPractice found that more than 90% of physicians surveyed were interested in using iPad within their practice, 61% were interested in using iPhone, and 59% were interested in using Mac.
The Eden practice management and EMR solution includes all the clinical, financial, and administrative features and functions physicians need to operate their practice in a cloud-based environment, eliminating the need for expensive on-premise hardware or software. Physicians and medical office staff can access the solution via Mac computers and through native applications developed by ClearPractice for both iPad (Nimble) and iPhone (Fetch). Eden is also Meaningful Use certified, enabling eligible physicians to earn up to $44K in incentives as part of the HITECH Act.
“Eden from ClearPractice is the first native, all-Apple solution for physicians who want Apple’s innovation, power, and ease-of-use,” said John Doerr, a Partner at Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers and ClearPractice board member. “Together with mandates for meaningful use of electronic medical records, Eden is a game changer: one powerful platform for iPhone, iPad, and Macintosh computers.”
“Our practice has been using a PC-based system for quite some time and, having used an EMR before and seeing its limitations, I knew what I wanted in a new solution,” said Dr. Scott Yates, Managing Physician at the Center for Executive Medicine in Plano, TX. “I use Apple products at home – have a Mac, iPad and iPhone – and wanted that to translate into our practice environment, but we also needed something that would be comprehensive, flexible and easy-to-use. With Eden from ClearPractice, I’m already realizing all the benefits I had expected.”
