Users can access their data at the office, print reports, capture transactions and even run month end procedures remotely,

ME+ runs on multiple operating systems connected to a single LAN (Local area network) or WAN(Wide area network). Because ME+ can run a multi-tier network, the user has the option of using Windows or MS-DOS terminals (Character terminals) to connect to the same database on the same network.

The Clinic module in ME+ allows the user to handle patient admissions and discharges with ease and produce invoices on theatre and ward stock. As with the appointment diary, the Patient Admission screen can be used as the focal point of the program to ensure maximum efficiency.

Accounting, reception or clinical staff are able to track all tasks related to their responsibilities by making use of the range of user-defined parameters that can be implemented in the Patient Admission screen. From a single point of access the user is able to monitor all patients currently admitted, access clinical and demographic information per patient and financial information at an account holder level.

Me+ is optimised to cater for industry changes with little or no development required resulting in fewer program releases.

ME+ offers application customisation options for any medical discipline or user preference. These options range from statement and reporting preferences to account numbering styles. The speciality specific options allows the user to enable features that will otherwise be hidden, for example: a Dental practitioner or Dispensing practice.

The Appointment Diary, Patient file or Account file can be used as the focal point of the program and all transactions can be posted from there. This feature optimises efficiency of reception personnel, accounting staff, and doctors using the program.

All lookup screens feature a dynamic lookup function which instantly guide the user to the closest match while typing regardless of the volume of data to look through.

Code Categories and Cost Centers can be used to group together sets of procedural codes for reporting purposes. This allows the user to accurately transfer totals to Ledgers or help with budgeting.

ME+ can be scaled to full, light and mini packages to cater for individual practice needs. ME+ has very low bandwidth requirements and can be used in all network connectivity environments. This enables ME+ to offer unsurpassed speed and connectivity, even if low specification hardware is used.

Incorporating true multi-tasking functionality, ME+ can execute requested procedures such as statement and print runs, while the user carries on with normal day to day activities in the program.

The ME+ program has proven its stability in the market. Most of its components are kept separate from those of the operating system, which makes it largely independent from the operating system. If Windows is upgraded or reloaded, the impact on ME+ is minimal. If data is backed up to a re-writeable C, the program can be initialised and run directly from the CD.

As the The bulk of ME+’s features were derived from it’s fore-runner Med2000 the product is ensured of an extended lifespan within the private healthcare industry as ME+ provides a solid upgrade path to Med2000 users.
