    I'm a new doctor starting my first clinic and I'm looking at practice management software. I found a free program on VersionTracker which struck me as a little odd. Software like this usually costs thousands of dollars but this one is free. I don't know much about the nuts and bolts of OS X so would you please have a look at the quicktime installation video that this guy has on his site? You have to do some stuff with terminal that I don't understand. My concern is that the program will somehow take over the system, force an upgrade, or be a source of ID theft. What do you think? I know little about programming. Why is the install procedure so extensive?

    Here is the link:

    Click on the Download Now link and it will take you to his website. Skip the email screen and download the quicktime video called "Life Record Installation Video"

    That installation reminds me of DOS :eek:

    Any way it is legit because Apple has a link to it on their website:

    Looks like a pretty robust App and also surprised it is free.

    Good luck in your practice! Using Macs should prevent a lot of headaches--sorry for the bad pun!
