About This Release

Welcome to Practice Perfect 3.0!

Release 3.0.0.579

With this new release comes a major appearance change and a completely different internal engine that will provide for greater speed, flexbility and the handling of special characters and fonts in clinical documentation.

Due to the nature of the changes, if coming from a version prior to 560, this update must be installed by one of our support representatives and can take a substantial amount of time. Please contact us at support@practiceperfectemr.com or via phone at (877) 510-7473.

Thank you.
