San Diego, CA – July 8, 2010 – Dr. Steve Yeomans, notable author and industry pioneer in the development of outcomes-based assessments for chiropractic practices, and ChiroTouch™, the nation's leader in chiropractic software, have partnered to deliver CTOutcomes—the industry’s first ever outcomes-based software feature as part of the ChiroTouch Total Practice Management System.
“We were honored to have such an esteemed industry leader as Dr. Yeomans to guide the development and deployment of CTOutcomes,” said Robert Moberg, President of ChiroTouch. “Lending his knowledge and expertise in outcomes-based assessments directly to the development process has resulted in ChiroTouch being able to offer its family of practices the most valuable outcomes-based software tools this industry has ever seen.”
“Outcomes assessments have emerged from economic and therapeutic concerns to become a practical reality in today’s clinical practice,” instructs Dr. Yeomans, graduate cum laude from National College of Chiropractic in 1979, board certified in 1985, and author of The Clinical Application of Outcomes Assessment. “Federal, state, provincial, and private third-party payers, patients, and consumer organizations are requiring that chiropractors provide objective evidence of the outcomes of therapeutic interventions. This is where ChiroTouch and CTOutcomes will play a very big role in the industry’s ability to meet these requirements.”
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.
“As Dr. Yeomans has stated so well,” added Robert, “accountability and processes must be implemented that will allow for the evaluation and assessment of all procedures in the delivery of chiropractic care. CTOutcomes allows the doctor to be proactive in this regard, with specific tools to implement strategies that ensure that the provider can stay on top of the patient’s progress, and to be able to respond to any request for documented evidence of the success of the care provided. CTOutcomes will be available to our entire family of practices as a specific integration with their ChiroTouch software and MyChiroTouch Portal by the end of July.”
