Health In 1981, Lisa Bilodeau didn’t even know what chiropractic was. Now, more than 20 years later, she’s the president of Chiropractic Success Systems. So, how did Bilodeau go from novice to industry expert? It all started in 1981 in northern California. I needed a job, and the unemployment office sent me over to a chiropractic office, shares Bilodeau, who is also a columnist for Dynamic Chiropractic. Needless to say, I had no idea what a chiropractor was. I couldn’t even pronounce the word. I just needed a job and they needed a receptionist. Bilodeau had no idea that interview would change her life and, through her, the chiropractic industry. She recalls that one of the five doctors in the practice had a small model spine in the consultation room where they interviewed her. He took the model and he explained to me what chiropractic was and what chiropractors do, and what subluxation is, Bilodeau says. I just got goosebumps. I fell in love with it, right there. I, of course, got the job, and the rest is history. Bilodeau says she knew immediately that she was entering an amazing profession. I .e from a medical background, so the whole chiropractic world was very foreign to me, but I just knew in my heart and soul, that’s what healthcare was meant to be, she explains. Despite her lack of experience, that initial step took Bilodeau on a 20-plus-year journey of discovery. She devoted herself to doing everything she could to improve the office side of the chiropractic profession. That included producing clean claims and billing techniques that resolved denialsexpertise she now shares with chiropractors and CAs through Chiropractic Success Systems and her many speaking engagements. Bilodeau also helps chiropractors with hiring effective staff, as well as other details that keep their offices running smoothly. Probably the biggest mistake when hiring is not doing a thorough testing procedure, reveals Bilodeau. The testing is very important, and following up on references is crucial. Bilodeau is in such great demand as a speaker, she’s even slated to speak at Karl Parker’s International Chiropractic Mega Event (ICAME) in Las Vegas in January, one of the top five chiropractic events of 2007. There, she promises to teach attendees the psychology of collections, how to make sure all claims are paid on time, and more. Part of her advice, though, might be surprising. Streamlining? Not quite. I think a lot of times chiropractors don’t use enough paperwork, believe it or not, Bilodeau explains. There are a lot of required forms, and that’s a lot of what we cover in the seminars. A lot of doctors think they need to cut corners because it’s going to upset the patient if they need to do certain paperwork, but it really is crucial, she concludes. They need to make sure they have all the proper paperwork for every new patient who .es through their office so they can avoid any problems further down the road. About the Author: 相关的主题文章:
