TCM Software for Mac

AcuBase 2.001
AcuBase 2.001 - Acubase comes from the people at Trigram Software. They have created a combination reference guide and practice management software to be used by practitioners. The reference section holds information in database form of points, herbs (single herbs, patents & regular formulas), TCM theory material. In addition, it has a practice management section that contains patient information databases, billing forms, a system for keeping inventory and vendor information for patent herbs. It's very simple and allows you to modify the information in the reference section to your own knowledge. It comes for both Macs and PCs, and runs 199$ new, or 99$ if you already own their software and need to upgrade.

Acubase 2.01
Qpuncture II
Qpuncture II - The people from Qpuncture are back and they claim to be better than ever. Qpuncture II builds off of the beautiful 3d animation of the original and adds just a bit more. First it includes herbal information including formulas and pictures of the herbs. It also includes pics of tongue diagnosis and pulse. Finally, they added patient management software which seems good but it is just the basics (ptnt management is not included with the mac version for some odd reason). For windows and mac both, and costs 299$.

TCM Windows /Pro/Pro+
TCM Windows - It is hard to tell the quality of this software as their site is not so informative. The software seems to combine reference material, study tools, and practice management. The level of practice management goes up as you go to Pro and Pro+ but so does the price. They software claims to be a fully searchable database of all herbs, formulas, point combinations, diseases, syndromes, and point tables. The images seem 2d but again hard to tell. The pro version does billing and record keeping. The Pro+ version is for machines solely with that software on it, in other words it runs the software, patient management, scheduling, inventory and word processing. All are available for PC and Macs. TCM Windows is 199$, Pro is 299$, and Pro+ is 799$.
