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.
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.
