April 29, 2014 – Want a fun 2-minute overview of how EHR can simplify a chiropractor’s life? Look no further than “A Tale of Two Chiropractors,” an animated video from Medicfusion EHR that examines the dramatic difference an electronic health records (EHR) system can make in a practice.
Hank and John, chiropractors with big dreams, star in this short piece. They open their practices and quickly attract customers. Hank goes with an EHR system and one receptionist; John bypasses EHR and adds staff, a big investment in people. As their practices grow, the video depicts the vital role EHR plays in a busy office.
Efficiency reigns in Hank’s office thanks to EHR. Customers quickly move in and out; paperwork is done in advance; notes are completed by day’s end; payments are made electronically; profitability increases; and he also receives incentive checks. In addition, with a certified EHR system, Hank’s Medicare reimbursements go up.
It’s a different story with John. Without EHR, everyone is swamped with paperwork. Patients grow tired of waiting to check-in and checkout. Staff members are overwhelmed and leave, creating turnover, extra training and added costs. John must work late to complete his notes; he’s struggling to make it as his Medicare reimbursements drop, a penalty for not having EHR.
In “A Tale of Two Chiropractors,” one dream thrives, another dies. Take it from Hank, John and Medicfusion. View the video at http://medicfusion.com/taleoftwochiropractors/
