A Practice Management System for New Chiropractic Practices
As a new chiropractor, you are probably anxious to start your own practice. You want to start putting those years of schooling to work by helping ease patients’ pain and suffering. The problem you face, though, is either getting overwhelmed with administrative tasks and paperwork or being forced to hire office staff whom you really can’t afford.
What you need is a practice management system that will move and expand with you, easing the pressure of keeping up with paperwork while also allowing you to spend most of your time doing what you’ve gone to school for: helping people with their health.
The Needs of the New (and Veteran) Chiropractors
As you begin your chiropractic practice, back-office work is something that you want to minimize, at least as much as you can. You became a chiropractor to improve people’s quality of life, after all, not chase paperwork. What you really want to focus on is doing as much face-to-face patient interaction as possible. Your goal is to spend your working hours treating patients and improving their health through chiropractic care.
Unfortunately, that paperwork still has to be done. There are patient charts to complete, SOAP notes to maintain, and patient and insurance billing to handle. With the old-fashioned way of managing a chiropractic practice, you have two choices: do everything yourself and put in eight-hour work weeks, or hire several office staffers to handle the reception duties, billing, and insurance paperwork. But what if neither option is appealing?
ChiroSpring Practice Management System and Patient Notes
Fortunately, there is a third option. With the right practice management system, such as ChiroSpring, you’ll be able to keep up with your SOAP notes and other administrative tasks without requiring hours of tedious work that you’d rather spend with patients.
First, ChiroSpring provides you with a proven way to improve your SOAP notes. You’ll find yourself writing fast, efficient, and audit-proof patient notes in no time. With fully customizable templates, you can also tailor the practice management software to your individual needs and preferences. Even better, ChiroSpring is touch-friendly, so you can work on a tablet just as well as on a laptop or desktop computer.
Eliminate or Streamline the Front Desk
Front-desk work can often require hours that could be better spent on other tasks. With ChiroSpring, the front-desk process is improved in many ways, including there being a virtual front desk to manage patients. See which patients have arrived or have missed their appointments. Streamline the paperwork process by making it 100% digital using ChiroSpring’s online intake (which patients do before arrival) or the patient Self Check-In Kiosk (which is done inside the practice).
The front desk allows for the practice to move patients through the process in an organized and efficient manner. Upon the doctor completing the visit, the patient can be checked out and re-scheduled with ease. If payment is needed, this is also done, and a receipt can be provided to the patient if needed.
ChiroSpring also fully supports online scheduling and managing missed appointments. Patients can schedule online without the need for a receptionist or other office worker to help them through the process. Since the system automatically sends patient reminders, you’ll see fewer missed appointments. That will lead to increased revenue, which helps you improve patient access and care.
When a patient does miss an appointment, the software automatically moves it into a separate queue for follow-up. Patients can schedule their appointments at any time of the day or night, even when nobody’s in the office. Your practice could see more patients each week as a result of this frictionless experience.
Even Your Back Office Is More Efficient with ChiroSpring
In the back office, ChiroSpring practice management software is just as useful. The secure billing and claims process draws information automatically from your SOAP notes, saving you and your staff precious time and keeping all of your claims and bills accurate.
Your accounts receivables and insurance claims can go directly to a clearinghouse via secure FTP, without any hassle or stress for you or your back-office staff. Once the bills and claims are paid, ChiroSpring gives you an extremely fast and easy way to handle your reconciliations. You can maintain your focus on patient care without taking away from getting your services paid.
Multiple Locations Are a Breeze with ChiroSpring
ChiroSpring is ready to grow and expand as you do. Older practice management systems might say that they support multiple locations, but they often work by forcing you to duplicate all your data. If you practice in two or three different locations and your patients schedule their appointments in those different spots based on their convenience, you or your staff will have to input that patient’s information in each location, and previous charts won’t follow the patient unless you manually copy the software’s database from one place to the other. That’s not true multi-location support.
With ChiroSpring, however, all the data is stored in the cloud, using industry-standard security to maximize patient privacy while affording your practice the flexibility that it needs to branch out to multiple locations. All of your sites will share the same data, so your patients will show up as expected at Location A, Location B, or any other office you open. There are no double entries to worry about—just your patients’ charts following them from office to office so you can treat their ailments as needed and help them feel like new again.
