Product Quick Facts
Founded in 2006 by Dr. Leo Bronston, a Chiropractor with 30 years of clinical experience, BackChart was originally developed solely for use in Dr. Bronston’s 6 Wisconsin clinics. Backchart was eventually released in 2010 for use in other practices and received Meaningful Use certification in 2011. Backchart’s electronic health record (EHR) software solution was specifically developed for chiropractors, with the goal of providing this specialty with an affordable, reliable, and user-friendly software solution.
A web-based platform, BackChart offers chiropractors access to their electronic health records from outside the office as well as from mobile devices, which eases the flow of communication and lets providers access and record clinical information as they see patients. BackChart also features robust charting features that streamline common office workflows. These tools let clinicians and office staff organize notes by incident, track quality care measures for Meaningful Use, create custom medical alerts and set progress exam reminders. Additional BackChart tools include a billing queue that lets users add or subtract procedure codes and modify diagnostic code, as well as clinical processes features that include diagnostic imaging and internal messaging functions. As a Meaningful Use certified EHR, BackChart helps Chiropractors qualify for federal incentives in 2014 and avoid Medicare penalties in 2015. This software platform also includes a comprehensive patient portal that gathers demographic information, manages incoming check-ins and lets patients review their medication prescriptions, allergy information and lab work.
Dr. Nathan Kadlec, a practicing chiropractor with clinics in Ipswich, South Dakota, reported increased productivity among office staff, an average increase of 2-4 patients per day, and a decrease in time spent charting after implementing BackChart.
