Eight companies on Monday announced the release of 11 solutions compatible with FileMaker Pro 7. Many of them will be on display during
Macworld Conference & Expo San Francisco. Leading off the line-up was Life Success Institute’s
Schedula Agenda 1.0
Schedula Day Book 1.0, both of which sell for US$79 for a single license and $129 for a network version with no seat limit. While both are calendaring applications, the latter was designed for users who need to track multiple schedules. Both tools feature independent scheduling for multiple calendars, one-click data entry and more. Day Book also offers availability checks and configurable work groups.
The company also noted that it’s now shipping
Web Code 39, a program that prints Code 39 barcodes from within FileMaker Pro 7 databases without requiring special fonts. Also known as Code 3 of 9, Code 39 is a commonly used barcode that works well, even when printed slightly wrong. Web Code 39, which is networkable, enables remote users to access databases hosted on the Internet and print their own barcodes. Pricing is $129, with no limit on the number of seats.
Quality Medical Assurance has released
prnChart, a medical record and scheduling solution that includes dictation, transcription, template generation and other features.

PrnChart can also automatically import lab results from Quest Diagnostics and search for patients according to specific criteria. The up-front cost for installation, training and one-year support is US$9,000 per physician; additional doctors and staff are $4,000 and $300 each, respectively.
