Atlanta Doctor goes paperless, optimizes space

Dec. 15, 2009

ATLANTA, Georgia, December 11, 2009 – After Dr. Joey Hans, D.C. made the transition from champion body builder to chiropractic physician, he operated in a number of space-limited environments, ranging from a Winnebago RV to a 250-square foot office/treatment room in a health club. Space is not an issue in the doctor’s current 1,050-ft. shopping center location but the lesson was well learned and Dr. Hans had decided before moving in that he wanted to do business without paper documents and files.

“With limited space it made sense to go paperless and after researching numerous software programs online, the ACOM solution was just what I was looking for,” said Dr. Hans, owner of Active Health & Wellness Center and an enthusiastic user of ACOM Health’s RAPID Chiropractic Documentation and Practice Management software. “Now I’ve virtually eliminated the need for paper documents.”

Dr. Hans had tried several practice management and billing programs before settling on RAPID Documentation, the automated SOAP notes and clinical reporting solution from the ACOM Health. Shortly before moving to his present office and adding staff, he added Practice Management, integrating the two software modules in an end-to-end chiropractic software solution that virtually eliminates the need for paper documents. Integration of the modules allows charges to be imported directly into the Practice Management program for billing third party payers electronically and for printing HICFA 1500 forms and printing patient receipts for patients.

Patients self-register, opening or updating their electronic file using a kiosk in the reception area. Dr. Hans views the file on-screen in the exam/treatment area, expanding it using the software’s on-board helpers. Notes and observations are saved in a highly organized database that allows the doctor to generate interim and final reports with just a few keystrokes. A wireless network allows documents to be transferred, stored and managed almost entirely without printed copies.”

 “Having the complete ACOM Health chiropractic software suite is the only way to go if you really want to do it right,” he says. “For the most part I use RAPID Documentation and my staff uses RAPID Practice Management. The solution has positioned us to where we could easily double our patient volume.”
