San Diego, CA – July 06, 2010 – ChiroTouch™, the nation’s leader in chiropractic software, in collaboration with Dr. Steve Yeomans, notable author and industry pioneer in the development of outcomes-based assessments for chiropractic practices, has officially launched CTOutcomes – the industry’s first ever outcomes-based software suite as part of the ChiroTouch Total Practice Management System.
“The launch of CTOutcomes marks an important milestone for ChiroTouch,” said Robert Moberg, President of ChiroTouch. “To be able to offer the industry’s premier tool for helping practices achieve evidenced-based care is an achievement we are all proud of collaborating with the Dr. Yoemans, the industry’s leading authority on the subject, is indeed a critical component in the successful delivery of this additional element of our determination to enrich the practices of the chiropractors we serve, and the profession as a whole.”
CTOutcomes allows providers to track their patient’s pain and disability through a sequence of questions. Furthermore, doctors can submit a request via the patient’s email to have them fill out their own outcome assessment online, where it is incorporated automatically in the patient’s file. The feature also includes a graph/chart function, providing both the patient and the doctor the opportunity to get a visual representation of the patient’s progress. Additionally, a full summary report, inclusive of all the assessment detail, can be exported for dissemination as well.
Chiropractic software designed from the ground up to maximize efficiencies for virtually every process, including patient self check-in, scheduling, SOAP notes, billing, interoffice communication and more; ChiroTouch has developed its HIPAA-compliant system to drastically reduce the time it takes to perform tasks that chiropractors are already doing. That gives chiropractors more time to see more patients—resulting in increased referrals, improved efficiencies, and a direct, measurable impact on practice profitability.
“CTOutcomes will become a critical tool for providing evidence-based reporting to insurance companies, workers’ comp administrators and providers, as well as patients,” added Robert. “And to compete in today’s healthcare practice environment, providers require objective tools that can demonstrate the effectiveness of treatment to all concerned parties. We look forward to CTOutcomes becoming the tool that practices turn to for illustrating the effectiveness of a patient’s care. Add to this the ability to see the outcome of care within a cross-section of patients in a practice, to a grouping of practices within a region, and then on to clusters of regions and techniques of care, we hope to capture what our profession delivers and promote and provivde necessary reinforcement.”
