medicfusion-logoRaleigh, NC – Want a fun 2-minute overview of how EHR can simplify a chiropractor’s life? Look no further than “A Tale of Two Chiropractors,” an animated video from Medicfusion EHR that examines the dramatic difference an electronic health records (EHR) system can make in a practice. The video can be viewed at
Hank and John, chiropractors with big dreams, star in this short piece.  They open their practices and quickly attract customers. Hank goes with an EHR system and one receptionist; John bypasses EHR and adds staff, a big investment in people. As their practices grow, the video depicts the vital role EHR plays in a busy office.
Efficiency reigns in Hank’s office thanks to EHR. Customers quickly move in and out; paperwork is done in advance; notes are completed by day’s end; payments are made electronically; profitability increases; and he also receives incentive checks. In addition, with a certified EHR system, Hank’s Medicare reimbursements go up.
It’s a different story with John. Without EHR, everyone is swamped with paperwork. Patients grow tired of waiting to check-in and checkout. Staff members are overwhelmed and leave, creating turnover, extra training and added costs. John must work late to complete his notes; he’s struggling to make it as his Medicare reimbursements drop, a penalty for not having EHR.
In “A Tale of Two Chiropractors,” one dream thrives, another dies. Take it from Hank and John... and Medicfusion. View the video at

Written by TAC Staff   
Sunday, 20 July 2014 04:34
The Academy of Chiropractic is proud to announce that Dr. Donald Capoferri has been the first chiropractor nationally to have completed a Mini-Fellowship in Neuroradiology, focusing on MRI spine interpretation. Dr. Capoferri, a 1981 Pennsylvania College of Chiropractic graduate, did so by completing a 40 hour program requiring a minimum pre-requisite 25 hours of MRI study.

capoferriThe Mini-Fellowship involves reviewing and being tested on a minimum of 40 MRI spine series with Robert Peyster MD, Neuroradiologist. Dr. Peyster attained his neuroradiology training at Massachusetts General Hospital in the Harvard Medical School system, has been published over 70 times and is now a professor of radiology and neurology and is the Chief of Neuroradiology at the State University of New York at Stony Brook, School of Medicine.

In addition to the image review and testing, Dr. Capoferri also had to study extensive research on MRI and neuroradiology . He then had to do his own research and write a case report suitable for publication on how MRI effects the diagnosis, prognosis and/or the treatment plan of a chiropractic patient.

According to Dr. Mark Studin, an adjunct assistant professor at the University of Bridgeport, College of Chiropractic, who both coordinates a neuroradiology clinical rotation for senior interns at the doctoral level and this program at the post-doctoral level, “This is a significant step for the chiropractic profession in advancing our knowledge and keeping pace with the medical community. Without these types of programs, we will forever be in the shadows of medicine and we need to control our own destiny in a collaborative marketplace. This cannot be done without direct knowledge.”

At the present time, six additional doctors are in the middle of attaining their mini-fellowships. Anyone in the profession is welcome to participate.
