Pro is the 9th major upgrade from the original, best-selling AcuBase Standard.
It was developed by a team of programmers from Trigram Software, most
of whom are intimately involved in various medical modalities. In this,

effect in April 2003. While there is no objective standard of certification
for software to be HIPAA-compliant, AcuBase Pro complies with HIPAA
standards through the new password protection features. You now
have the option of setting a password to keep private patient and

patient record for each of these different potential payors, keep
