Practice Master Pro software is perfect for use in a Nutritionist practice, or for a nutritionist working as part of a multi-disciplinary practice. You can take advantage of the built-in features as well as extending the functionality yourself using embedded spreadsheets and other file types. Flexibility is key to allow you to work how you want to work.

As this page shows a selection of the software features that can be tailored specifically for a Nutritionist clinic it is recommended that you also browse the rest of the site. In particular the 'Features' area and the 'Videos' area. There are many other features such as SMS reminders, online booking, cloud access, credit card payments etc that are covered in more detail on the other pages.
The Practice Master Pro software system lets you create your own nutritionist templates to use in the patient notes area. You can create templates for other modalities if your practice supports that, or you can create templates for slight variations on your own modality. For example, you might want to include the following nutritionist templates:
There are also lots of ways you can extend the features offered by embedding spreadsheets and other file types or taking advantage of diagrams. You can read more about the patient notes features on the Patient Notes page.
The patient notes forms in your nutritionist practice software let you embed files directly in to the tabbed pages. This means you can extend the features offered by Practice Master enormously and you no longer need to manage files for patients in folders outside of your patient notes.
You can embed spreadsheets in to your notes to help you track changes in your patient's data, for example the anthropometry of your patient. The spreadsheets can be set to track data over time and even show the results as a chart for quick interpretation. You can even take advantage of complex calculations to help you understand and draw conclusions from your patient's data.
You can embed Microsoft Word documents, which you may already have at your nutritionist practice and use currently. They do not need to be changed, just import them in to the patient notes templates and off you go. This means you do not need to fit in with any software's pre-determined ideas about how you should take your notes, or follow rules about the layout or question types you are allowed to use.
You can read about the other file types and their uses on the Patient Notes page.
You can use the built in 'Patient Handout' area in the patient notes software to create highly customised, professional quality handouts for your patients. The handouts in the patient notes are different to the 'Documents & Templates' area (which allows pre-formatted info-sheets). The handouts area lets you build your handouts on-the-fly for your patient during their visit and print or email the document straight to the patient.
These handouts are perfect for compiling custom dietary requirements, or specific recipe ideas for your patient to take away and use before their next visit.
The software has a professional quality document generation engine built right in. This means you can add in Microsoft Word templates which you are most likely already using in your nutritionist practice right now. You can add them in as 'templates' and then just add them to your patients with a single click. Your patient's key data items can be merged in to give your generated templates that personal touch.
You could include templates for things like recipe ideas, information on food groups, shopping guides and kitchen setup to help them get the most of their food intake. You can also add in a custom formatted food diary for your patients to maintain.
Practice Master has excellent email integration so once your templates are added in to your patient's record you can send them off with a single click. You can event take advantage of fully templated emails to provide a bit of extra info to your patients on the way.
