The life of a Chiropractor is busy one. It’s not the sort of profession where you have time for much else. It’s appointment after appointment, Monday to Friday, for at least 10 hours a day. Chiropractors may see anywhere between 20 and 50 patients a day and that is why it’s almost impossible for independent Chiropractors to run all aspects of the business by themselves.
There is a lot more to it than meets the eye. Undertaking consultations and managing client relationships are a lot more intricate than some would expect. Medical records must be kept religiously, updated regularly with the relevant information. After a medical diagnostic assessment is captured, a chiropractic diagnostic procedure has been carried out, and an informed consent for treatment is obtained, only then will a chiropractic adjustment be given.
This is a time-consuming process and that is why a Chiropractor will usually have a personal assistant that works from a front desk, assisting with data capturing, appointments and various other day-to-day administrative tasks.
If you’re a Chiropractor, you’re probably thinking more expense and more space, and we understand that it isn’t always realistic. That is why a Virtual PA can go a long way in saving you time and money.
What is a Virtual PA? We’ll explain by giving you the top reasons for having a virtual PA if you are a Chiropractor:
What a Virtual PA can do for you:
You will receive hands-on, personalised administrative assistance for less than half the price and without having to rent a bigger office or practice space! Whether you work from home or consult from a free-standing space, a virtual PA can assist with coordinating the day to day operations of a Chiropractic practice, except virtually.
That’s right, from the other side of the world. Your PA will be at your service as if they were right there in front of you, except you don’t have to supply them with anything. Only information.
