Choosing the Best Chiropractic Software for Your Practice
Chiropractic software is a big investment, and not just financially. When searching for the best chiropractic software, you decide how records will be kept, how your calendar will be organized, how billing will work, and how much time your staff will spend managing it all. Additionally, you are choosing how much you need the PMS to do for you—a robust platform will save you time and go above and beyond by helping to grow your practice.
What to Ask When Choosing the Best Chiropractic Software
With that much at stake when selecting practice management software, weighing your options is important. You’ve likely heard of the major software options: ChiroTouch, ECLIPSE, Platinum, Genesis, PayDC, EZBis, etc. Below are the top questions and considerations when searching for the best chiropractic software for your practice.
1. Compare All Software Options
Dynamic Chiropractic has put together a “Face Off” to compare the leading Chiropractic software. If you are unsure where to begin, this list provides an excellent brief overview that can give you a general idea of what is best about each option. You can also check out product reviews—we found this excellent source of reviews at Capterra, a software review site.
Each chiropractic software has its own pricing model. Sometimes, you pay a monthly subscription—excellent for trying a product without a substantial financial commitment. Some charge based on features you plan to use, which works well if you have specific needs or want to only pay for what you use. And with some, you are offered full licensing rights—by paying a larger one-time fee.
3. Interface and Ease of Use
The best practice management systems are easy to use, saving your staff time. It’s an excellent idea to sign up to demo the interface and understand if it will be intuitive and easy for you to implement all of the features the software includes.
4. Features and Integrations
What features does the software offer? How complex are the billing, insurance, and credit card features? How do appointments work?
Will it work for your small practice or your multi-location system? What technology does your office need for the platform to work?
It’s also worthwhile to consider integrations. Can a platform like Zingit’s chiropractic growth software integrate with the practice management software and help turbocharge your practice? (In most cases, for Zingit, the answer is yes!)
5. Training and Customer Service
Understanding how to use and get the best out of your PMS is essential. So it’s worth discovering if and how your team will be trained to use the software. Also, how do you contact customer service with questions or issues?
You are a DC, not an IT person, so knowing what will happen when you need expert help is important. You could ask this question of other chiropractors in your peer groups. You will undoubtedly hear if customer service is good or bad.
