Clinical record keeping to fulfil your compliance obligations

In today’s world of ever-increasing standards it is reaching the point where it is no longer practical to use paper records to fulfil your compliance obligations. Your paperwork needs to meet and exceed the requirements of your registration board and your patient’s insurers. You also need those records to be rock-solid in a court of law where the weight of expert opinion comes from medical specialists, not chiropractors.

The Three Principles of Right Technology – 3 Moore’s Law

What does 3 Moore’s Law mean to your practice? It’s simple. If you are not using this technology in your practice you are missing out on harnessing an exponential driving force that is fuelling growth across the planet.

In 1965, Gordon Moore (co-founder of IBM) wrote a paper where he noted that the density and performance of electronic devices had doubled approximately every 2 years from 1958 through to 1965. He predicted that this trend would continue “for at least ten years”.

Ten years later, there was no sign that this increase in hardware performance had slowed down and others predicted it would continue “for at least ten more years”.

The Three Principles of Right Technology – 1 Pareto’s Principle

Using the right technology in your practice gives you tremendous leverage to increase your success, save time and make life generally more fun… but only if it is the right technology. If it’s not, you can actually make your office less efficient as your team is strangled by PC woes.

The Three Principles of Right Technology govern what works and what doesn’t and they are well-studied in business circles. They are Pareto’s Principle, Pilzer’s wealth formula, and Moore’s law. They have a powerful synergy and you can easily use all three of the together in your practice to get greater results in less time with a lean and efficient team leaving you free to spend more time doing what you want.

Let’s talk about each of these principles in turn and then bring them all together at the end. Continue reading “The Three Principles of Right Technology – 1 Pareto’s Principle”

The Amazing Power of Mail Merge

Mail merge is a fantastic tool in Microsoft Word (and other word processors) that allows you to take a list of patients and create personalized versions of a document template.

Marketing research has shown over and over that when you write to someone by name, they are much more likely to read what you write. Like, “Dear ~first name~”. In clinical practice the reality is that we are marketing good health to our patients and we really want them to read what we give to them.
