MacPractice Releases Integrated, Customizable Clipboard 4.2 App And Launches HIPAA-Compliant Patient Check In App For IPad And IPad Mini

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.
