Actually I am a great fan of web browser based solutions and as you say not all are created equal. I currently use MYOB online solution and find it quiet pleasing when I make a suggestion that is advantageous for all concerned...presto next time you log on there it is...don't get that with traditional software solutions.
Sadly for once in my career I am not the boss and am stuck with Best practice.
May take you up on the trial offer for the sake of a test drive when I have a day spare to play...who knows I may need you if I break free.
I run a multisite, multipractitioner, multidisciplinary practice in the uk and redesigned (and continue to) practicepal with the designer. It is web-based and can be accessed on tablets, pc's, macs, smart phones and costs little to run.
It does have paper, email and text reminders, full stock control, barcoding, reporting (exportable to all .csv financial software systems for) although it does have income and expenditure reporting. Diaries are practitioner tagged and link to online bookings (including prepayment if you wish (this is how we run so no more failed visits and lost income) and changes/cancellations with us in control of the refunds). The clever bit is that physio patients can only book a physio appointment with a physio not a podiatrist (which seems to happen with other systems).
Clinical notes include charting, importable jpegs and pdf's (all forms are now added to patients notes), recalls are automated as the practitioner sets the recall date at the consultation.
I have no ongoing financial interest in this product other than I was paid for initial development so I won't benefit if you purchase it. Why not try it.....it's the best one we've found so far and it continues to change and improve....
