ACOM Health Introduces Physician Referral Program; Free to First 50 Purchasers of RAPID Chiropractic Software

May 08, 2010 (PRLEAP.COM) Health News
LONG BEACH, California, May 8, 2010 ACOM Health has introduced a highly automated program that chiropractors can use to dramatically increase practice revenue by generating quality patient referrals from primary care physicians in their communities, it was announced today by Sam Mikhail, vice president of sales. As an introductory offer, ACOM Health will deliver the program free to the first 50 purchasers of RAPID Notes and Documentation Software after the official program launch date of May 10, 2010.

"Practices spend thousands of dollars on Yellow Book ads and other marketing activities with unpredictable, variable results," Mikhail said. "This program represents an extremely cost-effective alternative that is highly targeted and which raises the chiropractor's visibility in the local healthcare community while stimulating traceable increases in patient population. Conservatively, a chiropractor using this program should expect at least one or two new patients per month, and once it is in regular use, to see referrals increase by as much as 30-40 percent."

The economics are sound, Mikhail said, noting that estimates place the revenue-value of each new patient in the range of $1,200-$1,800, including initial exam, X-Ray and 12 weeks of treatment. "At those rates, the program pays for itself very quickly, after which the new revenue goes straight to the bottom line," he said.

Doctors know that patients referred by other physicians normally are exceptionally compliant and tend to complete the course of treatment, Mikhail said, noting that many have tried to develop programs to capture referrals but that most fail because of underdeveloped or disorganized outreach procedures and inconsistent application.

Conversely, the ACOM Health program emphasizes timing and the level of detail doctors need to see and it communicates in their professional language. In building the program, ACOM Health has drawn upon a wealth of knowledge and experience developed over years of consulting with chiropractors, testing and perfecting the program to bring the necessary detail and organization together in a systematic package.
