BackChart - Chiropractic EHR Software


 

Designed to provide robust, web-based EHR functionality designed specifically for chiropractors, BackChart is a great fit for small to mid-sized practices seeking to achieve Meaningful Use, improve quality of patient charting, reduce paperwork by providing a sleek patient portal, and more. Training is fully integrated within the system, and includes a variety of training mediums, from one-on-one training to simple FAQ videos. These varied mediums help reduce the learning curve for office staff and doctors alike, while ensuring the optimal level of support is always available.

The BackChart user interface has been streamlined to save time and simplify movement from one function to another, ultimately giving staff and doctors more time to spend with patients. The user-friendly patient portal gives patients the ability to independently enter their own health history, insurance, and demographic data, while also offering a secure place in which to access and update their information at any time.

BackChart boasts several features that improve the quality of chiropractic notes. Customized templates speed up the documentation process by creating note-taking formats that can be customized for each practice's individual workflow and documentation procedures. BackChart allows you to fully integrate your voice recognition software to accurately interpret dictated notes, which leads to more original, unique notes for each patient. 

One of our favorite aspects of the system is the Medical Alerts capability. This function provides notifications within patient profiles to improve provider awareness of specific circumstances when treating a patient, such as certain allergies, conditions, or anything else that is noteworthy in regards to patient care. 

BackChart also fully integrates with Kareo's Practice Management & Billing system, creating a full-suite of functionality. For Chiropractic practices seeking an end-to-end, certified EHR system, BackChart can help organize patient records, streamline practice workflow, and improve the overall quality of patient care.

I like the ease of use and that it meets Meaningful Use requirements.

I have not had any issues thus far. Customer support is very helpful with any questions that arise.

Recommendations

Look for a program that meets all Meaningful Use requirements while still allowing you to have streamlined notes. The ability to create and use macros saves tons of time.

I like that it is easy to use without compromising the quality of the notes you take on a day-to-day basis. I use this program along with Kareo Practice Management, which interfaces nicely with BackChart. So when I finish a certain note, it generates a bill, and all I have to do is check it and send it over to Kareo (which is how I heard about BackChart). Kareo is a top-of-the-line medical software company, and it says a lot to me that they chose BackChart to interface with for Chiropractic. I've used a few software systems (that I was very disappointed with), and I am so happy I found BackChart. It's exactly what I was looking for in an EMR.

Likes Least

I honestly love this EMR. I'm a recent grad that has practiced on a few EMRs, and I tell you this is the best EMR for our profession by far. It's not too "clicky," but it's open enough to have varied notes (so they don't look the same). The use of macros and previous notes makes things quicker for tasks you perform repetitively on a day-to-day visit like CMTs.

Recommendations

It's not complicated, and it honestly takes a couple hours to learn to use this nice, affordable, certified EMR that looks professional without any glitches. It's very reliable, and the cloud system is great for logging in anywhere.

I have to admit that I dragged my feet when it came to Electronic Health Records. I looked at four other companies but rejected them for two reasons. First was the price, which was a combination of the initial purchase price, the cost to update, and the cost to have tech support. The second reason was the notes didn't sound or look like me.

BackChart took some time to set up because we use macros. But every chart note, exam, and entry sounds like me because it is me! While BackChart has macros already in place, I was able to add my own. Now when I treat a patient, the notes reflect my care, not some generic verbiage that no one, including myself, is going to read.

In addition to personal training, there are web videos which were especially helpful as I could watch them on my own time. It took me a month to train and personalize BackChart before I went live with patients. Honestly, because I am NOT a computer person, I thought the first 6 weeks were going to kill me. It took time to learn the program and get people entered in for the first time. Like any major change it disrupted the flow of the office for a while. But now, I have to say, I would never go back to how I did notes before. I am seeing more patients and spending less time on chart notes, while still producing quality, personalized notes.

If you just want electronic records and aren't interested in qualifying for stimulus money, you can't go wrong with BackChart. Because it is stored in the cloud, I can finish up notes from home while my children are sleeping. This way I can attend their school functions and still get my work done.

If you want to try for the stimulus money, then there is an easy pie graph that keeps track of your progress towards making those goals. This requires time to click on all the pertinent boxes, but I can't say it has improved patients quality of health. I am just documenting more of what I was already doing. So now instead of escorting patients to the front desk, I finish clicking away, and then I am ready for the next person.

The only thing I don't like is the patient history on their portal site. It is way too cumbersome. I have stopped using it because patients didn't like it and it didn't work for me. If I could, I would like to pick and choose the pages from the history that do work for me, but for now, I can't. So I do my own paper history and gave up on BackChart's. My patients and I are much happier.

Overall, I would encourage anyone to seriously consider BackChart. It has worked well for me.

BackChart - Chiropractic EHR was easily integrated into our clinic one year ago. We had it up and running within 2 weeks, without much training as the program was so user-friendly. The customer support at BackChart has been great to work with. We have made numerous suggestions over the past 12 months of ways to improve the software, and they have implemented almost all of them in a very timely manner. My clinic has ran more efficiently since using this program. I am spending less time at the office charting, as I am able to keep up with note taking as I see patients, rather than doing paperwork at the end of the day.

Patients love to view their graphs that they provide showing their Outcome Measure scores - it is a great educational tool. I am so grateful to have found such a quality product that a small office can easily afford. As an added bonus, we were able to qualify for the EHR Incentive Program and received our check earlier this year! Thank you BackChart for all that you do and for understanding that we need your product!!!!

We started using BackChart in our office starting in April and were able to be up and running using the software exclusively in May. The training sessions were helpful and the ability to talk to someone directly about questions is a big plus. The templates are great and really save time, especially with initial examinations and re-exams. It's wonderful having notes in the cloud and not have to worry about server management and a lot of technical up-keep.

I have been using the Back Chart EHR now for a couple of years. I have found my clinic notes to be excellent, I have not seen any other clinical notes that looks as good as what I can produce. I am a "dinosaur" as it pertains to technology (at least that is what everyone tells me), and I have no trouble navigating through the system. My records are detailed, polished and extremely professional. I am very pleased with the Back Chart System.

My name is Steve Cohn and I am the owner of Back In Line Chiropractic & Massage. We are a small clinic with very little room for storage of extra paper, excess files, or any more non-essential 'filler". This reason alone was enough for me to look for an electronic cloud based record. As I started my journey, I came across many systems that were either very expensive on the front end, or way too complicated. We needed something that addressed what we did on the visit, and document fast. I had used a voice recognition system for many years, but it always had to be upgraded, and eventually was not supported. I started using BackChart chiropractic about 3 months ago and things are going well. You sign up, and in 2 minutes you can literally put in patient information. The screens are easy to learn. Jordan came out and met with me a few times to work through some things, but most things are easily done over the phone. The support is quick and gets issues taken care of right away. BackChart has really helped to speed up my notes and allow me to focus on other things in my practice - the patients. If you want to save time, give BackChart a try.

I've used several EHR programs and I have found BackChart to be the easiest, most straight forward of them. It was extremely easy to learn, as well as to enter data into. I feel that there are many other programs out there that include many functions, which makes the programs more complicated and cluttered. BackChart includes only the most vital functions needed for successful note taking and data entry.

The customer service has been prompt and extremely helpful. The system is very user-friendly and easy to use. My only complaint is that some of the formatting is a little off when inserting text.

A recommendation that I have is to make the orthopedic exams, muscle tests, etc, more of a one-touch option instead of having to go into the text and edit as needed. Over all it has been pretty good with functionality. Younger patients seem to like the portal but seems over the head of my older patients who aren't tech savvy. The cost of running Kareo with it seems a bit steep. But I have only just started with my practice so those costs seem high.

I am a chiropractor that practices in a town of 600+ people. So much of what works for larger practices, does not work here, or is too cost prohibitive. It took me a couple of years of searching for an EHR program that was not so complicated that I needed to hire a specialist to do my entry work, would meet my needs, but not bankrupt the office at the same time. I waited to purchase a program until I could find one that I was comfortable with. I am glad that I did, because Backchart has more than met those needs.

I have the basic version of Backchart. I purchased it in September, 2012 and was able to participate in the last quarter of the 2012 CMS incentive program, starting in October 2012. I do not do the billing program with them, as I already was well-established in a previous program. However, I do the Electronic Health Record program.

At the beginning, it was pretty overwhelming. But the instructors were very patient and scheduled their trainings so that it was not overwhelming. My staff and I were easily able to learn the procedures. It is a very forgiving software program, and most errors can be corrected easily. I especially like the macros and transfer of information options. Customer support is always excellent.

I was able to attest in February 2013, and I qualified and received a CMS bonus in June of 2013. If I can meet the qualifications for the CMS incentive program-ANYONE CAN!

I'm in a solo private practice and have been using the software for over a year now. I'm extremely happy with the program. The key features that helped me spend more time with patients and less time on paperwork were the patient portal - I'd send a link and they fill out their paperwork electronically prior to the visit including demographic information, health history and functional outcome measures. Also, the Macros/Copy Previous Note/Copy Word Document - I have created templates and macros specific for my practice style and methodology. My notes can be completed faster and more complete. And finally, their Web-based platform - which is extremely convenient.

We have been using BackChart in our office for just about one year. Naturally, we were hesitant to trying something new, but Jordan and his team provided very good training to get us up and running, and have been there every step of the way when we had problems or questions.

They are also very receptive to suggestions on how to improve little things in the program to make day to day things easier. Customer support is second to none, and that is one of the most important things we considered when choosing BackChart.

I have been in practice for eight years at New Hope Chiropractic. I have a small office setting with one doctor and two office assistants. We have been using BackChart for the last two years. Before I began using BackChart for my electronic health records, we were using traditional patient files and a separate billing software. In most situations, my office staff was being forced to enter data into the paper chart as well as the billing software. This was becoming redundant overtime and we were looking for new software that might be able to consolidate much of the front desk workload and also improve my note-taking efficiency to enhance my patients chart information. Our office had looked for quite some time for the right software and when we began our trial version I spoke with customer support. It immediately looked and felt as if it was going to be a great fit for our office. I can honestly say that I have not been disappointed by my initial instincts after two years of using BackChart.

When we began utilizing BackChart, we spent some time becoming familiar with the system before we converted 100%. The customer support during this training was outstanding and it made the transition from our old paper records and previous billing software a very smooth and almost error-free transition. I believe that we did an initial training. About 6 to 8 hours spread out over a week of webinars. Following that, we were able to implement back chart very quickly. Throughout the implementation process we were also given continued support and if we had any questions they were answered directly through e-mail or phone, which is a great asset to have from any cloud-based company. Many companies will offer bells and whistles with their specific software, but if they lack customer support many of the tools that they might offer you is essentially useless. BackChart's customer support team from the beginning has been outstanding.

At this point, after two years of using BackChart and becoming more familiar with it over time, and modifying my specific version through my own office needs, the customer support teams helps our office. I feel that the efficiency has improved significantly, the workload has been reduced significantly, and from a patient standpoint - the clinic flow has improved as well. In general, making the decision to utilize BackChart has been a great asset for our clinic, patients, and staff. Thank you!

BackChart has been a great asset to my practice. It is efficient and user-friendly, allowing me to spend less time charting while still writing a high-quality note. Helpful features include the macros function, the ability to export multiple notes at once, upload information from other healthcare providers, and reduce waste by implementing the Patient Portal. I have recommended BackChart to many of my colleagues and will continue to do so!

BackChart has been a great system in my first year of practice. The customer service has been excellent, and they are always willing to help in any way they can. With the customizable macros for SOAP notes, my notes only take minutes a day to get caught up after a busy day. It's customizable, and very easy to use! Well done, BackChart!

My clinic started using BackChart approximately two years ago and I have been extremely pleased with the product and the service they provide. The transition into the EHR was unexpectedly easy. Customer support has been personalized and productive when we have needed it. Top to bottom productivity/efficiency of my clinic has improved more than I thought possible.
