Why Should our Clinic Contract Chiropractic Services?
Top 5 Reasons Clinics Contract Services Over Hiring In-House Services
1. Provider recruitment, credentialing, and peer review assistance. All chiropractic H.R. service costs associated with contracted doctors are included.
2. Specialty chiropractic equipment is supplied and included. The chiropractor hired on also doesn’t have to go through many steps to obtain resources. We are here to directly serve.
3. The DC is contracted through the organization and trained to work in an integrated clinic setting. In general, chiropractors work in a private practice setting with lower volume and aren’t trained on proper documentation, as they do not typically work with insurance, affecting billing and payment to the clinic.
4. Training and protocol expertise in billing, patient scheduling, and patient education by the chiropractor and support staff that produces optimal utilization and compliance by the patients.
5. Ongoing program development initiatives are also held by the outside organization to grow your program. This means internal and external marketing so that staff and providers feel more at ease about referring patients to the chiropractor. This also allows for more patient attraction.
What Does a Chiropractic Visit involve in a Community Health Center?
How Integration Begins...
Every patient's health and wellbeing is our only priority.
Scheduling an Appointment
Can be done via a referral from the clinic provider or the patient can self-refer.
Consultation and Examination
The Chiropractor will do a full assessment of the patient, diagnose, and examine the condition, and begin collaboration with the necessary providers of the care team. In order to properly treat and assess further diagnostics studies may be ordered.
Chiropractic care is safe, effective, and gentle. We will take time to explain chiropractic care to patients and the care team. Every treatment is customized to fit the specific needs of the patient and is in congruence with the overall collaboration of providers.
Treatment/Chiropractic Spinal Adjustments
Treatment/Chiropractic Spinal Adjustments Chiropractic treatments usually involve spinal adjustments. A spinal adjustment is a treatment that uses pressure on a joint of the spine. It is used to improve pain and function. Chiropractic adjustments can be done with the hands or special chiropractic instruments. The careful, controlled force used on the spine can range from gentle to strong, and from slow to rapid. Sometimes other joints of the body are also worked on to help treat the spine. Treatment is interactive with you so patients can express any concerns they have about the style of adjustment they are most comfortable with.
Other types of treatment may include:
Patients may be sent home with an exercise and stretching plan, as well as suggestions for the best ergonomic set-up.
Report of Findings to Care Team
After discussing with the patient, the history, goals, examining the spine, and reviewing any x-rays or tests, the Chiropractor will follow the set protocol for collaboration with the clinic providers. They will discuss recommendations with the clinic team to ensure a cohesive working environment after discussing with you your history and your goals, examining your spine, and reviewing any x-rays or tests, the doctor will discuss recommendations with you. If you have a condition that requires care with other providers, the doctor will tell you. If with open lines of communication.
