MacPractice MD Receives ONC-ATCB Certification

MacPractice MD 4.1 has been certified as a Complete EHR for 2011/2012 by the Certification Commission for Health Information Technology (CCHIT), an Office of the National Coordinator - Authorized Testing and Certification Body (ONC-ATCB), in accordance with the applicable Eligible Provider certification criteria adopted by the Secretary of Health and Human Services.

This certification “allows doctors who prefer the user-friendliness of the Mac platform to qualify for federal incentives intended to encourage the adoption of electronic medical records,” said Mark Hollis, president of MacPractice, Inc.  In each case physicians are eligible for up to US$44,000 over a period of 5-6 years toward this goal.

MacPractice software works with iPhones, iPads, and Macs and allow physicians to manage their patient health records, accounting and billing.  With MacPractice installed physicians can use either an iPhone or an iPad to enter patient information off-site as well as access patient information and records off-site when decisions need to be made.  Physicians can also prescribe medications directly to pharmacies.
