Created, used and loved by Integrative Medical Professionals nation wide.
NaturaeSoft was founded in 2004 by Naturopathic Physicians and partners Tucker S Meager, ND and Aarin Meager-Benson, ND.
NaturaeSoft was born of necessity, out of the pain of our initial struggles when getting started as Naturopathic physicians. These same struggles we witnessed many of our colleagues suffer in the first several years of getting their practices under way. Some even to the demise of their practice and their return to another form of income for sustenance.
The struggles of the Naturopathic Physician and all integrative medical professionals as they have forged their way forward toward inclusion into and have begun to play a significant part in the needed change of the medical industry.
It is our intent to support those who carry the spirit of change in medicine by practicing under their own shingle, those who maintain the standard and ethics of their care of their patients, and who lead their staff, colleagues and patients toward better opportunity, personal fulfillment and inclusion in something greater than themselves.
For those of you with a "fire in your belly" and a "glimmer in your eye" for all that you touch, we are here to support your success.
"This software is what we wish we had when we got started."
We hope you will take advantage of our learning, and give your practice the benefit of the combined experience that has been embedded into the OfficePro practice management suite over the last 10 years of its development.
We urge you to take a moment to get to know NaturaeSoft, understand our products, and envision what it would be like to have your systems integrated automated, secure and accessible.
Dr. Meager and Dr. Benson met in Medical School, then students, ripe with the ambition of their future, fell in love over their aligned passion for excellence in medicine and their shared belief in the power of nature.
Over the past 14 years they have been blessed with great experience and learning that have helped to to come to the place that they are today and shaped the founding of NaturaeSoft.
Soon after Dr. Meager and Dr. Benson graduated, they faced the pains of our forefathers as they too reinvented the wheel as they set up practice. Such was the life of a Naturopathic Physician just a short time ago. Still today many of us are faced with the burden, challenge and excitement of running your own business. And for many of us we thrive in this setting, but there are far more of us whom would prefer to simply focus on the care of their patients, and rightly so.
Over the past 12 years practicing in licensed and unlicensed environments and practicing in almost as diverse an array of settings as can be found in the integrative medical professions, Dr. Meager and Dr. Benson have forged the NaturaeSoft solutions through their struggle.
In collaboration with many in the Naturopathic community we have developed a system, even a suite of systems, that integrate to bring you the combined knowledge of over 200 naturopathic physicians, acupuncturists, massage therapists, medical doctors, chiropractors and other professionals that have helped to shape the products that we offer today. Our systems confidently meet the diverse clinical and business needs of integrative medical professionals, from those starting out on their own to those operating large integrative medical centers.
We continue to work to design and hone our solutions with the help of our customers to continue to support their success in the face of the ever changing digital age of medicine.
