Best Practices for Chiropractic Care Plans
Chiropractors should employ industry best practices to effectively manage patient care plans. This includes defining the plan, demonstrating value, educating patients, and explaining the long-term health benefits.
Define the Care Plan
It starts by clearly defining the care plan, costs, and payment structure so patients have an understanding of what is being proposed and how they benefit. Your care plan should include a breakdown of the value that they are receiving, especially if you are offering a discount for patient commitment to a care plan or advance payments.
You should also take the time to educate patients on the overall benefits of chiropractic care and how the chiropractic care plan works, including both the short-term and long-term health benefits.
- Short-term benefits: reducing pain and restoring joint function and muscle balance
- Long-term benefits: restoring functional independence, return to normal activities, and wellness
Many patients stop going to their chiropractor once they resolve their short-term concerns and get pain relief or restored motion. To ensure that your chiropractic care plans create recurring revenue, you need to emphasize the health benefits of the long-term plan to keep patients coming back.
- Improved quality of life
- Pain relief and prevention
- Chronic pain management
You should also explain the ancillary financial benefits that result from a care plan, such as reducing prescription costs, doctor visits, and hospitalizations.
Make Payments Simple
Every time that a patient has to reach into their purse or pocket to pay you, it’s a reminder of the cost. You can lessen the impact of this reminder by implementing automation for recurring payments, monthly billing, and autopay. This enables patients and doctors to focus on patient health and progress without worrying about payments.
Make Chiropractic Care Plans Easy
Practices also need a simple way to create care plans, track patient progress, and handle billing, payments, and reconciliation. An electronic health record (EHR) practice management software, such as ChiroSpring, can create a seamless workflow that makes practice management simple.
