March 4, 2013 — The American Chiropractic Association (ACA) announced the addition of HealthGrid Inc. to its corporate member program. HealthGrid’s product, ReferralPro, is now available to ACA members wanting to optimize their referral and referral management capabilities.
“We are excited to support the American Chiropractic Association’s mission to advance chiropractic,” said Jim Rutstein, CEO of HealthGrid. “Back pain is a very common patient complaint. There are approximately 80,000 U.S. doctors of chiropractic serving approximately 280M U.S. patient visits per year. ReferralPro allows doctors of chiropractic to establish and participate in a virtually unlimited number of local care teams involving all types of non-medical and medical referral partners.”
“The entire healthcare system is increasingly collaborative. Collaborative care often produces better patient outcomes. ReferralPro gives ACA members access to a healthcare referral network that helps doctors of chiropractic collaborate with other healthcare professionals interested in an integrative approach to patient care,” said Keith Overland, DC, president of ACA. “Doctors of chiropractic have many referral patterns and partners on ReferralPro.”
