Is this it? Is this the year that the ICD 10 insurance coding requirements will begin to take effect? Last year the implementation was delayed, so that all the players were capable of handling the new reporting style. Fortunately, if they do begin to be required, there are experts that have already identified some of the more likely codes that will be applicable to chiropractors.

Evan M. Gwilliam
No one will know which ICD-10 codes will be used commonly by chiropractors until the code set has been in place for a while and ICD-9 codes are in the rearview mirror once and for all. In the meantime, though, educated guesses can be made using the same resource that payers have in front of them: the Tabular List in the ICD-10-CM code set.

Tom wakes up early in the morning to music streaming from his favorite music app on his iPad. The coffeemaker downstairs, which is connected to his iPad, knows Tom didn’t hit snooze and begins brewing his cup. Tom gets dressed and dons his Apple Watch, which will send that same music to his Bluetooth wireless headphones.

As a population, Americans are overfed and undernourished. The average American is eating 300 more calories each day than he or she did in 1985, with added sweeteners accounting for a full 23% of these additional calories.1 For all of these excess calories, Americans aren’t getting the nutrients they need.

When it comes to creating a marketing plan to find new patients for your practice, there’s just one thing to remember: It’s not about you. Once you learn that lesson, you’re well on your way to enjoying a constant flow of new patients. Blame (or credit) social media and the new democratization of online content for this.

Behind a successful practice, there is an inspired team. Behind an inspired team, there is a courageous leader. However, we weren’t taught in Chiropractic College how to hire, train, and lead a team! In my previous (very successful) practice, my team members were dedicated, inspired, showed up on time, and rarely called in sick.

I’m not a pain-based practitioner anymore. I’m a health-based practitioner. I didn’t go into chiropractic to handle sciatica and hot disks, or to relieve a migraine headache. Yes, I was glad to be able to help those people, but my purpose was to increase the overall quality of their health and their lives.
