Software Review

We are pleased with the overwhelming response to Chiropractic Economics' first software review (we are still getting requests for the first edition) and our second one offers even more products and services for today's practitioner.

We have improved the review with an easy-to-shop and compare grid format, with cross references to the alphabetized index of companies and their practice management software products. Each entry lists company-specific products and service information such as key features, price ranges, and where to purchase. We have made it fast and simple for you to obtain more information from all listed companies.

Our most recent reader survey1 indicates that 78% of our readers are computerized to some degree. Another 34% of you plan to buy a computer this year and 40% want to buy more software. Advanced software is bringing exciting new clinical and practice-management applications and chiropractors are finding the computer to be an essential tool for the demands of today's modern practice.

The information in our review was obtained from questionnaires completed by the listed companies. We have made every effort to provide complete and accurate information on the features that will best fit your needs. The companies listed in our review welcome your inquiries and will provide more information upon request.

We are pleased to provide the industry's most comprehensive software review and welcome your comments.

­­Happy shopping!
