iCOMPLY - Practice management and compliance automatically
iCOMPLY is now in beta testing. It automatically schedules compliance and essential practice management in an online calendar. You can use it on a PC, iPad or tablet.
Your year of activities are listed in a calendar/scheduler with a daily email to remind you of the tasks that need to be done to stay compliant and perform your essential practice management tasks. The CODE modules are built right in and you can access them from the relevant activity. For example if you are working on the safe use of x-rays, the relevant modules are linked to the activity you are working with. Work can be delegated to team members and they will each have their own dashboard and email reminders. You can also print off a compliance report at any time/ You can read more here.
