The field of functional medicine (FM) is growing rapidly within chiropractic. It is showing promise not only as it relates to life-saving results but also as a tool that allows DCs to reshape their financial future. In addition, FM also allows the DC to interact with the 90 percent of the population that does not use chiropractic services. To understand whether FM fits into the profession of chiropractic depends on your stance. The long-standing debate between mixers and straights continues to exist in the profession.
Legal Ease Hiring staff for your chiropractic practice can be time-consuming, challenging, and stressful as, ultimately, you lean on your employees to create a positive patient experience. Background screening services conduct a deep-dive into an applicant’s history, helping practices make more-informed hiring decisions. A variety of services are available and the relevance of each screen is predicated on the position or job responsibilities.
Coding Keys There are many things to consider when determining whether active-care rehab is a service you would like to provide for your patients. Among them, and perhaps most importantly, is how to describe the various services with the correct coding. Most exercise options available in a typical chiropractic rehab room will fit into three categories: Therapeutic exercises, coded 97110; Therapeutic activities, coded 97530; and Neuromuscular reeducation, coded 97112.
Marketing Matters/em> You’ve seen changes in how you code and bill for services. You’ve seen changes in reimbursement. And you’ve seen changes in the software you use to run your practice. So of course it makes sense that there are changes in the world of marketing as well. As with the other aspects of making a business work, it’s important to keep up with trends and changing consumer behaviors. And not all patients are the same—you need to tailor your message and your medium to best match your target demographic.
Practice Central Ideally, the design of your practice should increase the success of your business. Consequently, the success of your practice is directly related to the quality of your space. And the quality of your space is shaped by the depth of forethought and experience that is put into the process of designing it. From your location, through the space plan, to the sound systems, every detail is important to the efficiency and effectiveness of the environment.
