The premiere of "Doctored - The Movie", by producer Jeff Hays, will take place in New York City on September 21, 2012, in Los Angeles, September 26, and in Chicago, Atlanta, and Dallas September 28. The film will also be screened at those same theaters for one week following the premieres. Between September 5 and 15, a director's cut of the movie was viewed by more than 1,500 chiropractors from San Diego to New York City, and their comments have been nothing short of impressive .

A few years ago I began sharing a dream from the platform at chiropractic conferences: "I have a dream that within this decade chiropractors will be recognized as the go-to health experts around the world."  As the chiropractic envoy for this movie I have had the honor of viewing the director's cut more than 10 times, and I now know that my dream will become a reality, probably much earlier than expected. This movie is a must for every DC to view and share with their community. The impact of this message will change the face of healthcare in America. One of the DC attendees in San Diego wrote a truly touching testimonial  and shared it with colleagues on social media. One of his statements is:  "I am proud to be a chiropractor and proud of Producer Jeff Hays for taking on 'our story'. This is a PERFECT springboard and opportunity to once again tell our story to the public, only this time it is coming from a third party."

Anthony Ebel DC stated: "Every mother who views this movie will be deeply touched and know that their children are in good hands with chiropractic. Every DC needs to get these personalized DVDs and share them with their community, even if they just stand in a grocery store and give them away. Doctored will deliver. When moms see this film, they will do the most important thing we could ever ask of them - ask questions. Chiropractors hold the answers."
Many health experts across the professions were interviewed for Doctored; chiropractors, naturopaths, physicians, osteopaths, medical scientists, former drug reps. Everyone interviewed agreed that there are serious issues and that the healthcare system in America is broken.  Chiropractor and scientist Dr. James Chestnut stated: "There has been a deliberate and sustained effort by allopathic medicine and Big Pharma to label any intervention other than drugs, surgery and radiation as unscientific quackery. Doctored- The Movie exposes this truth effectively."  

Doctored effectively shares these messages with one goal in mind - to change a system and lead the American public to healthier lives, to help the public understand that they have options for healthy living. In the opinion of many health experts including Patrick Gentempo DC, "The documentary Doctored - The Movie, like chiropractic, started as a great idea based on truth and has now morphed into a true force of nature."

In my opinion every chiropractor must support the distribution of this movie, stand up and be counted. Either we stand for something or we fall for everything. Jeff Hays and his team at Jeff Hays Films with their passion and amazing talent have succeeded in revealing the truth about healthcare in America, and achieve what no one in the world has yet been able to do - telling the story with accuracy, passion and ultimate truth.

He’s published several articles in industry trade magazines on the topic of digital radiography, and now brings his expertise to ImaSight.
“The opportunity to move to a better company presented itself to me, and having competed against ImaSight for years, I was aware of its strengths, better prices points, higher quality, and broader scope of offerings in the marketplace,” added Cheesman. “There is no question that ImaSight understands the value in making high-quality equipment and software available, and affordable, to the chiropractic community. I’m honored to now be a part of the team.”
ImaSight recently made its Vision Chiropractic Power Tools annotation software, designed with and for chiropractors, available directly to practices without the requirement of a hardware investment. This, combined with offering practices the option to retrofit their existing, film-based equipment with its Infusion System, or a complete turnkey key solution with its Ultimate System, gives chiropractors more options to go digital than ever before.
“We are pleased to bring Andrew onboard,” said Steve Johnston, Vice President and Co-founder of ImaSight. “He has brought with him considerable industry experience, understands the chiropractic market, and has a passion for developing long-term client relationships.

About Mighty Oak, Inc.
Mighty Oak was created in 1999. Our President, Judith Barnes, has been a computer teacher/ consultant since 1980. Taking their cues from Star Trek, students would always dream, "... do you think it would be COOL if you could just talk to the computer and it would type what you say?"

When Judith discovered Dragon Naturally Speaking, she knew it was a good time to start her own consulting company, specializing in speech recognition.
In 2001, Judith met a software developer who created a program for his wife (a chiropractor). The program used Dragon Naturally Speaking for a totally "voice activated" database application for chiropractors. Judith started selling the program, called DC Talk, and in 2005 had over 350 clinics installed. In March, 2005, Judith acquired DC Talk and hired her own programming staff. Most of our features are based on current customer's input. Don't be afraid to share your great ideas, your voice is heard at Mighty Oak!

Today, Judith teaches continuing education throughout the USA, specializing in computer creativity, productivity and speech recognition applications.
Mighty Oak and Judy are proud of their reputation for providing creative and timely customer support.

ChiroTouch Launches Donation Program to Provide Additional Support to the Foundation for Chiropractic Progress

San Diego, CA – September 19th, 2012 – ChiroTouch™, the nation's leader in chiropractic software, recently launched a donation program to provide additional support to the Foundation for Chiropractic Progress.

“It’s important for us at ChiroTouch to continuously find ways to give back to the chiropractic community we serve,” said Robert Moberg, President of ChiroTouch.  “We’re excited to launch our latest program – from now until the end of the year, ChiroTouch will donate $250 to the Foundation for Chiropractic Progress for every ChiroTouch advanced total practice management software system purchased.”

The Foundation for Chiropractic Progress, a not-for-profit organization, was founded in November 2003 by Kent S. Greenawalt, President of Footlevelers Inc., as he felt a strong need for the entire chiropractic profession to receive positive media representation nationwide. The Foundation's Executive Board is comprised of chiropractic leaders, stakeholders and others. The Foundation embraces a mission of generating positive press for the chiropractic profession and increasing public awareness to the many benefits associated with chiropractic care. The Foundation's public awareness campaign consists of monthly press releases, advertorials, public service announcements, advertisements (print, radio, television), and partnerships with high profile spokespeople.

ChiroTouch is a fully-certified server-based software designed from the ground up to maximize efficiencies for virtually every process, including patient self check-in, scheduling, SOAP notes, billing, interoffice communication and more. ChiroTouch has developed its HIPAA-compliant system to drastically reduce the time it takes to perform tasks that chiropractors are already doing. That gives chiropractors more time to see more patients—resulting in increased referrals, improved efficiencies, and a direct, measurable impact on practice profitability.

“The Foundation’s commitment to the chiropractic profession inspired us to identify new ways we could support the tremendous work it does,” added Robert. “Our hope is that everyone associated the profession will be as inspired as we are and help this donation program flourish by investing in our software system.  Doing so will ensure that the Foundation can continue its tireless work in supporting and advancing the chiropractic community.”
