That was enough for a long time, but Chiropractic practice today demands more. Regardless of your practice style or philosophy, outcome assessments are the universal language of health care.
Outcome assessments are the gold standard of justification for treatment; whether that be at an elevated interval due to acute pain or dysfunction or at a reduced interval with minimal pain but persistent dysfunction.
Outcome assessments bridge that gap and justify care within the very diverse chiropractic community, reviewers, payors, insurance companies, judges and juries. Being well versed and able to utilize them is essential for patient care in the 21st century.
