MacPractice has launched MacPractice iEHR App with ePrescribe for iPad and iPad mini to US physicians. MacPractice iEHR works with MacPractice MD version 4.2 desktop practice management and clinical software and with the recently announced MacPractice Clipboard 4.2 App for iPad and iPad mini, which streamlines patient registration.
In an office that uses iEHR with MacPractice Clipboard 4.2, the doctor and clinical staff will begin their examination with demographic and clinical information including medical, social, surgical and family histories, reason for visit, medications, etc. having all been entered by the patient, saving time and eliminating redundancy and errors. While patient records may be securely locked at the end of a visit, the data can be pulled forward for a follow up visit, saving more time for the doctor and staff members.
“MacPractice iEHR is the simple-to-use, full-featured, native Electronic Health Records App for iPad and iPad mini that doctors who prefer to use Apple technology have been asking MacPractice to develop. Our engineers have worked diligently to deliver secure interoperability for our native iPad Apps: Patient Check In, MacPractice Clipboard 4.2, and MacPractice iEHR with our best-in-class desktop applications: MacPractice MD, 20/20, and DC, and with MacPractice’s EMR Ability,” said MacPractice CEO Mark Hollis.
Among many powerful MacPractice iEHR features is the ability to ePrescribe on the iPad and view all a patient’s prescriptions whether they were executed on the iPad or in MacPractice on the desktop. MacPractice iEHR facilitates medication reconciliation, Clinical Decision Support, and patient and account alerts.
Images and PDF documents stored in MacPractice’s Attachments Ability may be viewed, and photos or documents may be acquired using the iPad’s camera. The doctor can draw on or annotate photos, pictures, and line drawings used in standard or custom templates as well as those captured with the iPad’s camera.
MacPractice iEHR users can view clinical data recorded in MacPractice EMR or MacPractice EDR, Notes, Rx and Attachments. MacPractice iEHR builds a narrative for the patient visit, which can be viewed on the iPad and is also stored in MacPractice. Attachments captured with the iPad camera are also simultaneously stored in MacPractice on the desktop.
MacPractice iEHR tracks the fulfillment of Meaningful Use measures in the course of an examination and provides visual cues to assist the office in attaining the necessary objectives.
Doctors can use templates customized by MacPractice specifically for their practice in addition to standard templates and a growing library of primary and specialty practice templates. Every US provider can benefit from using MacPractice iEHR with MacPractice practice management and clinical software. MacPractice plans to release a version of MacPractice iEHR for its international users in 2013.
MacPractice iEHR App may be downloaded FREE from the App Store and requires a support agreement to interoperate with MacPractice MD, 20/20 and DC, MacPractice Clipboard 4.2 App and Patient Check In App for iPad and iPad mini.
