MacPractice DDS to include aMac dental imaging
MacPractice Inc. and aMac Digital Radiography announced Thursday that the forthcoming release of MacPractice DDS -- dental practice management software for Mac OS X -- will include aMac 2.0, a Mac-based x-ray management system for dentists and specialists. As a result, MacPractice DDS users will be able to check x-rays acquired using aMac.
MacPractice DDS has been beta tested by clients since December. The software is anticipated for a March release along with MacPractice MD for physicians and MacPractice DC for Chiropractors. The software integrates accounting, patient and insurance billing and management and database report functions. The developer plans a second calendar quarter release that will add scheduling and e-claims filing. MacPractice has been developed in coordination with Patrick Clyne, the original designer of DentalMac, MediMac and ChiroMac.
aMac 2.0, released last November, enables dentists to keep track of the x-rays they take using a voice command system and either USB or FireWire-based interfaces.
