New technology allows patients to scan themselves, saving staff time;
shareable Report of Findings boosts referrals
ROANOKE, VA—September 18, 2017—Celebrating 65 years of serving Chiropractic, Foot Levelers has introduced its latest advancement, the single-foot Kiosk. This revolutionary scanning device is designed to help healthcare providers save time, ensure all patients are scanned for orthotics, and increase referrals to their practice.
Patients Scan Themselves, Orthotic Usage Increases: Statistics prove that the Foot Levelers Kiosk helps doctors increase the number of patients they fit for custom orthotics. By going in the practice’s reception area, the Kiosk allows patients to scan themselves, before the doctor’s exam even begins. This saves the staff time, allowing them to spend more time reviewing the comprehensive Report of Findings with each patient.
Doctors who have already integrated the Kiosk into their practices have seen orthotic usage skyrocket, some by as much as 100%. Better outcomes for patients, better income for the practice.
Shareable Report of Findings, Increase Referrals: The Foot Levelers single-foot Kiosk offers two Report of Findings. The most comprehensive is the doctor’s version, which should be reviewed with every patient.
But new to the Kiosk software is a Report of Findings that is emailed to each patient, before they even step off the scanner. This new report is shareable on several social media platforms. When the report is shared with friends and family, referrals to the practice increase, resulting in a steady stream of new patients.
Invitation to Foot Levelers Training Center: With each single-foot Kiosk comes an invitation to one of Foot Levelers’ FREE Training Center events. The Training Center is an extensive, half-day session that focuses on improving outcomes and income through increased orthotic usage. Data shows attendees of the Training Center have seen an increase in orthotic usage by up to 400%.
The new, single-foot scanning Kiosk is part of an ongoing story of growth for the 65-year-old company. Started as a small, family business in Dubuque, Iowa in 1952, today Foot Levelers serves thousands of providers and millions of patients in over 85 countries. In 2014, Foot Levelers opened an office in Sydney, Australia, followed by a second in Belgrade, Serbia in 2016. Foot Levelers has long been the leader in orthotics for Chiropractic patients, with an expanding presence in Physical Therapy, Podiatry, Family Medicine, Massage Therapy, and Acupuncture, among other health disciplines.
In September, the Archives of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation published a watershed study proving that Foot Levelers custom orthotics, particularly in conjunction with Chiropractic care, significantly reduce Low Back Pain (LBP)—by 40.4 percent. This study is critically important because the National Institutes of Health (NIH) reports 80 percent of adults experience LBP. LBP is the single leading cause of disability worldwide, with many patients taking dangerous opioids for relief. “Foot Levelers and Chiropractic can make a difference in the opioid crisis,” Greenawalt adds.
