Let me ask you a question, how many of you have been hanging out on a Sunday night, with friends or family; life
is good, you just got home from a perfect Sunday Funday; you’re relaxed, the kids are asleep, you’re favorite movie
is on and you sit down on the couch to relax maybe have a glass of wine and then the thought strikes about everything you have to do on Monday and suddenly you’re stressed?! BEEN THERE!
Follow-up question…what are you actually stressed about? Is it the fact that you get to help someone? That you get to make someone’s day and make them feel better? No. It’s all the time-consuming tasks that take you away from your patients. Those are the things you’re stressed about. And those are the things that your team is stressed about.
Technology solves a lot of our daily problems. A lot of the stress we put on ourselves comes from not taking advantage of what’s right in front of us.
This is why technology is the key to pushing this industry forward because millennials, Gen Z, and beyond are not only the most tech-savvy generations, but they’re the most tech-dependent generations. Most of Gen Z doesn’t even know a way of life without a cell phone, iPad or laptop, etc.
Technology has become such an integral part of our daily lives because it offers a whole new level of convenience.
Everything we do is centered around convenience, even before technology. You go to the grocery store, the gas station, etc. that’s closest to you. You visit a certain store because it’s on your way home from work.
The same goes for your patients! Outside of your specialties, or referrals, or glowing reviews; many of your patients have chosen you because you were in their area.
We truly believe more people would take charge of their health if we made it as easy as possible for them. Right now, many people look at it as a chore rather than something
to look forward to. Because patients have to remember to break away from a busy day at work to call and reschedule their appointment. And what if they get put on hold!
Many practice owners are nervous that patients won’t adapt to technology, think again! 72% of people prefer self-service appointment scheduling over phone calls. Amy Southwick, the Office Manager at Southwick Chiropractic said the patients in their 80’s and 90’s love the scheduling app and text reminders because they’d lose the card reminders. Dr. Carolyn Griffin at Back to Health Chiropractic received 19 reactivations after sending 1 text message! Her patients love two-way texting.
The future of chiropractic care lies in working hand-in-hand with technology. The key is future-proofing your practices to cater to the needs of emerging generations for years to come.
