Do I need a network?
A network is recommended if you would like to share a common database among multiple computers/sites. A network is convenient if your patients visit different sites and/or different computers (rooms in the office). If you have a network and a patient visits two different sites or computers, the fetal growth can still be easily viewed on the reports and graphs.

Is your software HIPAA Compliant?
Our software is a tool for your site to become HIPAA compliant. Although the HIPAA security standards do not mandate the use of any specific technology, BABE™ includes many features that may help you achieve and maintain compliance. These include:

For software, HIPAA compliance often refers to billing functions and submission of electronic claims. BABE™ does not do electronic claim filing, and compliance with the HIPAA transaction and code set rule does not apply. HIPAA compliance is the responsibility of users of protected health information. Healthcare users and organizations are required to implement administrative safeguards, physical safeguards and technical safeguards to comply with the HIPAA standards.

How can I customize BABE™
There are many ways to customize BABE™. Some examples include:

See the Program Manual under the Help tab on how to customize these options.

Can BABE™ store/archive images?
No, BABE™ does not store images. BABE™ is not a PACS system. It does not perform image-archiving. A picture can be inserted into a report, but cannot be saved. If you are interested in using BABE with your PACS or RIS system, please contact us. We can work with your vender to provide an interface.

What do maintenance fees pay for and are they required?
Maintenance fees pay for your usage and technical support of BABE™. Yes, they are required. They must be paid annually. Please check the price page for the current maintenance fees.

How can I pay for my software and/or maintenance fee?
We accept payments by check or purchase orders (hospital's only). We do not accept credit cards. Checks can be drawn through US Banks. We will accept only checks drawlable in a US bank. Please make checks payable to Medical Soft, Inc. Attention: BABE ORDER on the PO or check.

How do I place an order?
Placing an order is very simple. You can call us or send us an email. We will then ask you to fax us a PO or mail a check. Once a PO or check is received, the order will be processed and shipped. We generally use FedEx 2 Day Service for shipping.

Can I connect my ultrasound machine to BABE™?
No. This feature has been discontinued.

I want a printed help manual. How can I get one?
The program manual can be accessed in BABE™ by clicking on 'Help', then 'Program Manual'. After the manual appears, click on the tab 'Contents'. Then double-click 'Entire Manual'. This will list the different sections of the manual, which can be printed. If you would like to print this for your users, I would recommend printing the following sections: Getting to know BABE™, The Obstetric Ultrasound Report, The Main Menu, Searching the Database, Maintaining Your Patient Data, and Customization.
