Spending More Time on the Chiropractic Patient Than the Practice

ChiroSpring

Reading Time: 3 minutes

Is your chiropractic practice operating the way that you envisioned it? New graduate chiropractors begin their practices with the desire to truly improve their chiropractic patients’ lives by reducing pain and restoring mobility. But as chiropractors deal with the business tasks of running their clinic, they soon realize that time spent with patients becomes less and less. The idealistic stage wears off and a weary routine takes over.

For a practice to remain viable, the mundane day-to-day tasks must be completed, but it is no one’s dream to spend hours on billing, charting, bookkeeping, and other paperwork. Chiropractors often find themselves in the trap of spending more time behind a desk than with patients and more time at work after hours. This creates a cycle of pressure to move patients through quickly, more documentation burden, and a difficult time balancing work with the rest of your life.

Spend More Time with Chiropractic Patients

One study shows that overall, most health providers only spend, on average, 27% of their workday with patients. You know that word-of-mouth is your best advertisement and that patient satisfaction is crucial to your success. It is common sense that patients appreciate more time spent per visit, developing a strong relationship of trust with their chiropractor. No one likes to feel that their doctor is rushed and stressed. In fact, surveys of chiropractic patients show that time spent with the chiropractor in treatment, discussion, and planning is the most important factor in patient satisfaction.

Love Your Work Again

Just as important as chiropractic patient satisfaction is your own satisfaction with your job. Professional burnout is common in the chiropractic field, and long hours and the administrative burden are significant parts of that. Chiropractors reach for solutions, try different things, and get more frustrated and defeated.

Implement Real Solutions

Some chiropractors must hire more office staff to manage daily operations, and by doing so, they create the need to provide benefits, deal with staff turnover, and take time out to find the right people and train them. This expansion increases the practice overhead and is really more of a band-aid solution. You are treating the symptoms instead of the problem. The cure lies at the root cause: the volume of work itself. While all the work must be done and you feel that there is nothing that you can leave out, the difference lies in how your workflow is managed. Therefore, you might be amazed at how an integrated solution works.

CHIROSPRING does things you may not have thought possible by eliminating steps and repetitive data entry. Designed by people who truly know your business and understand the issues, CHIROSPRING frees up your day. Mobile apps and registration kiosks eliminate the need for receptionists and paperwork. They minimize the need for extra staff in the practice, increase revenue, and give you the time to do more.

The efficiency starts with fast SOAP notes with a touch interface to eliminate typing. Completed notes turn into claims and are scrubbed before submission. This allows you to spend more time with your valuable patients, without worrying so much about how you are getting paid. Your computer system works with you as you move through visits.

You will see that the data is already there and flows seamlessly into billing, invoicing, and claims. Less data entry creates greater accuracy and completeness, which can reduce insurance denials. There is no reason with CHIROSPRING’s technology that chiropractors should spend time that they don’t have on administrative and office tasks. CHIROSPRING creates the space in your day to do what you love: treat patients!
