Dr. Jenny Crosby established Crosby Chiropractic in 1995 and constantly strives to improve and update her knowledge in the field of chiropractic, acupuncture, and nutrition.
Currently, her emphasis is more focused on chronic illnesses that encompass depression, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, autoimmune diseases, and GI conditions such as Crohn’s, ulcerative colitis, and celiac.
She pursues targeted nutrition and helps patients focus on improving their gut health and their ability to absorb nutrients as a pathway to less inflammation and a healthier immune system.
In June 2021, they joined the Review Wave family with a mission: to grow their reviews. Little did they know that this would lead them into an entirely new world of possibilities! From a surge of new reviews to attracting new patients, reactivations, and more. The team was blown away!
Within two months, here were their results:
The patients are raving about the new capabilities as well! It’s so much easier to do paperwork on their phone or laptop, which means more free time for other things. Same goes for the Crosby Chiropractic team it saves them hours every day from manual data entry. Doesn’t get much better than that!
Thanks for sharing your story, Crosby Chiropractic. Keep on crushing it! 🎉
Do you find yourself in this situation?
You’re so excited to welcome a brand new patient, get them all set up in the system, and start changing their life. But, things get delayed because the new patient forgot their paperwork at home or they forgot to print it out, or they don’t even own a printer.
If you’re still gathering patient data via paper forms, faxes, or scanned documents, your answer is undoubtedly, yes. And you’re not alone. Countless practices have yet to fully join the digital age when it comes to data management.
In 2019, HP, one of the leading printer companies, reported a decline in sales. HP thought that more people working from home now would lift those sales, but printer sales are still on a steady decline year after year.
A recent study showed that only 30% of millennials owned a printer. And of those who do own a printer, 60% said they barely use it and prefer to fill things out online.
Online forms play an essential role in a patient’s experience. Handing them a massive stack of paperwork they barely understand as soon as they walk through the door is not only overwhelming, it’s frustrating!
If the patient is running late, in a rush, or just exhausted from a long day of work, getting slammed with paperwork and a longer than expected wait time is the last thing they want.
You’re also asking them to take another step out of their already busy day by printing things out. And deep down, people just want things to be easy.
The patient experience can quickly become negative.
Let’s not forget it leaves a lot of room for error that you could be held accountable for later when you can’t decipher their chicken scratchings. The person manually entering that patient data could misread or misunderstand what the patient wrote, which can affect their care plan.
With online forms, you can make certain fields required so that the patient can’t submit until they’ve entered vital data. With paper forms, you have to trust that patients fill out all the required information without accidentally leaving something blank. And not to mention the awkward conversation when you have to ask them to fill it out again .😬
There are many benefits for both the patient and the practice with online forms. But bottom line, patient records will be more accurate, and the patient experience will be stellar! Practices that use online forms notice an immediate change in these key factors after day one.
In an increasingly digital world, online forms aren’t going away any time soon.
WE ADDED A NEW CAPABILITY TO OUR ONLINE FORMS
Our online forms now have branching options. This means"...send a patient to a different question or different section of the form based on how they answer." you can send a patient to a different question or different section of the form based on how they answer. You’ve probably experienced this if you’ve taken a survey that takes you to more specific questions based on how you answered basic questions. For instance, if you need to ask a patient, "Are you pregnant?" or "Have you had any neck injuries?" It could then jump you to another section to ask more specific questions. Pretty cool right?
