A chiropractic doctor focuses on the relationship of a person’s spine and nervous system and evaluates how that relationship affects health and wellness. Chiropractors provide treatment to reduce stress, eliminate pain and restore function throughout the body. With computers being an integral part of life, it is no surprise that computers are helping the chiropractic industry. Health information is easily obtained and patient’s conditions are analyzed much quicker with chiropractic software.

Most chiropractors use software to store patient information. Not only is their medical history contained in this data, but treatment notes and preventative care instructions are also kept on computers. This makes it easy for a chiropractor to access patient health information quickly to share it with other doctors to find the best treatment method.
Using software for preventative care and treatment also ensures that treatments continue in the correct manner, as the details of every patient’s condition are quickly accessible and reviewed by the chiropractor. Organizing the data on a computer can eliminate the negative consequences that a paper filing system can have. For example, it’s harder to misplace an electronic file. It’s also easier to read computer fonts than some people’s handwriting.
Platinum System is one of the more popular software programs used by chiropractors. It is customizable so each doctor can alter the program to meet the specific needs of the practice. Thousands of chiropractic doctors in 17 different countries currently use this software. Other similar programs include ChiroTouch and AltaPoint.
As technology continues to advance, so will the chiropractic software used to store patient’s health information. The better the technology becomes, the better treatments will be.
