Managing information so you can manage care.

Welcome to INSight from NDS.  Over 30 years ago NDS developed a Practice Management System (PMS) called MENDS.  MENDS was used in as many as 6,000 practices nationwide.  Today MENDS has morphed into INSight, a comprehensive, seamless patient information solution sold and supported out of our Falmouth, Maine office.

Open Architecture

INSight runs on an SQL database which allows the open environment and scalibility required in healthcare computing today.  With Open Database Compliance (ODBC) and Extended Markup Language (XML) capabilities, INSight can be customized to meet the ever changing needs of your practice.


INSight’s open environment allows your practice to integrate the Electronic Health Record (EHR) of your choice.  INSight is currently integrated with several EHR’s including NextGen, Centricity and MicroMD through an HL7 interface.


Designed for both single physician and large multi-specialty organizations, INSight  provides a real Return on Investment (ROI) due to its intuitive, user-friendly interface.  Using the latest Microsoft technology, INSight streamlines the workflow for your entire practice, maximizing patient care, information management, communication and accuracy.  In fact INSight has repeatedly proven itself with a lower Total Cost of Ownership (TCO).


With INSight’s drag and drop scheduling, users can view provider preferences, link a room or equipment to the procedure and provide a complete waiting room management system.  Too many no shows?  Missing Encounter form?  INSight tracks these too!


Accurate charge entry with code validation is key to strong reimbursement.  Comprehensive Open Item processing and billing “scrubber” routines allow practice management to ensure that claims get paid when submitted.  Plus with INSight’s  EDI capabilities with partners such as Change Healthcare, claims are adjudicated as rapidly as possible.  With Electronic Remittance Advice (ERA) available for just about any carrier, posting of payments is easy too!
