Jane's Guide Here's all the help you need to use Jane.

Importing from MacPractice

Here’s what we know about moving over from MacPractice to Jane.

Disclaimer about our import guides: We create our guides through the experiences we have importing from different software, as well as searching for guide documents from these softwares to assist our customers in transitioning over to Jane. If you have any difficulty while retrieving your data, it’s best to reach out directly to your current software provider.

Exporting your Patients from MacPractice

So coming from MacPractice, we’ll need you to upload your Patient List export with as much detail as possible. We have seen this report come to us in Excel format which is perfect for importing to Jane. We would recommend reaching out to the Support Team at MacPractice for any guidance on how to export these types of reports.

Exporting your MacPractice Appointments

MacPractice appointments can also be exported to Excel from what we have seen in the past. Be sure to export both past and future appointments if applicable.

Exporting Charts from MacPractice

MacPractice allows users to batch export DR Images, EDR/EMR Narratives, and Notes to PDF from what we have seen in the past.

We have seen practices bring over a full batch export of charts in PDF format - This would include individual PDF files labelled with patient names for all of your clients with a single export. Jane can then import these files for you.

Images, however, can only be exported from MacPractice one patient at a time from what we have seen.

This means that while Jane can import the Notes and Narrative files, Images need to be moved over manually one at a time. Many people will choose to do this on an as-needed basis - much as if you were moving from paper charts. You might want to review the next day and download and upload these as files to the correct Jane Patient profile. Here’s some more information about how to add files to a Jane chart.

Note: As always, we would recommend reaching out to the Support Team at MacPractice for any guidance with the Data Export process.

You can also learn more or get a refresher on the best approach for linking chart notes to a specific patient in our Basics of Importing guide documents.

MacPractice Billing Data

We don’t import billing information as there are formatting issues between the two systems, but we can show you how to manually transition your patient credits and receivables into Jane.

Uploading into Jane

To ensure that your data is uploaded to the correct account, and for security reasons, we do not accept patient data via email. You can upload the files to us in the Settings > Schedule an Import area.

You can find an overview of this process here: Scheduling Your Import
