Best Practice releases "top pocket"
Best Practice has upped the ante with the release of Top Pocket, a Pocket PC extension to its flagship product Best Practice.
While not intended as a replacement for BP Remote (the Best Practice off-site logging solution), clinicians using Top Pocket on a compatible PDA can download patient files from Best Practice, view and add notes, refer to important demographics, and record prescription information and allergies. Interaction checking and access to the BP Drug Database is also possible.
Marketed as a "drop in replacement for MD2", Best Practice has more than 1000 doctors spread over 200 sites using its flagship product with the same name. Despite being in business for less than two years, the company is enjoying an impressive growth rate of 5 sites per week, and expects to hit 500 sites by 2008-2009.
Lorraine Pyefinch, Director of Best Practice says that while most of their customers are converting from Medical Director 2, they are surprised by the number of newly established practices wanting an integrated, advertising free solution.
Lorraine went on to say that enquiry is also strong from users of other clinical packages, however she admits that data conversion routines will need to be written before this market can be catered to fully.
