Benefits of Chiropractic Software

Chiropractic software offers chiropractic practices a host of benefits, including:

1. Centralized and Secure Data Storage

With in Chiropractic EHR software, patient data can be entered and stored quickly and securely. The software offers multiple options for data entry, including point and click, voice recognition and handwriting recognition to allow both chiropractors and staff to easily document patient encounters and maintain patient data. Once entered into the EHR, data can be retrieved instantly thanks to intuitive search functionality. The search feature examines the entire patient database based on specific requests and criteria, eliminating the need to search for missing charts and information.

2. Critical Alerts and Notifications

These features within chiropractic EHRs allow chiropractors to alert their staff about patient health information and issues in order to minimize provider liability. Information conveyed in alerts and notifications might include allergies, prescription and/or medical history, drug interactions and more. EHR notifications and alerts offer the ability to issue such notices at frequent and timely intervals.

3. Seamless Communication

Chiropractic management software allows chiropractic practices to communicate seamlessly with other providers and medical facilities. Important health information and data can be shared easily with laboratories, physician offices, pharmacies and other care providers, as the software supports multiple interfaces and is designed to “talk” to other EHRs and systems. This seamless communication improves collaboration between offices and providers, and ultimately produces better patient care outcomes.

4. More Efficient Chiropractic Billing

ICD codes are assigned to each complaint within the chiropractic EHR, making the billing process easier and more efficient. Built-in E&M coding also improves accuracy, offering providers the assurance that the appropriate level of service has been charged based on the patient encounter. Reimbursements also become faster within a chiropractic EHR, as encounters can be easily converted to billable EDI and paper claims.

5. Current and Capable Technology

Chiropractic software is designed to be compatible with the latest technology and devices commonly utilized in chiropractic practices. From desktop computers to laptops, tablets and smartphones, chiropractic office management software provides a solution that can be utilized easily across platforms and at all points and all applications within a practice – from scheduling at the front desk, to chiropractor consultations with the patient.

Chiropractic Billing  : Key Considerations and Best Practices

While the billing processes associated with chiropractic treatment may be less complex than some specialties, using relatively few CPT codes, there are very specific considerations and unique processes that must be performed in chiropractic medical coding and billing.

Outlined below are some key considerations and best practices:

  1. It is important to note that Medicare is a separate entity with its own fee schedule and billing policy. Medicare only covers adjustments that are performed by a chiropractor. In paying Medicare chiropractic claims, diagnostic codes are critical, and the order in which they should be listed is also important and specific.
  2. When billing for workers’ compensation, personal injury and auto accidents, there are also specific requirements. These include: the date of the accident and the state in which it took place.
  3. If the notes do not reflect that a service was performed, the claim should not reflect and bill for it.
  4. For diagnosis codes, the notes should reflect the regions adjusted and the claim should outline at least one code for reach of the regions that were adjusted.
  5. A five-region adjustment is very rare, thus billing this code is likely to flag the submission with insurers and trigger an audit.

Common Chiropractic Procedure Codes

Below are some of the common procedural (CPT) codes for chiropractic clinics:

  • New Patient (99201-99205) - Office or other outpatient visit for the evaluation and management of a new patient
