1. In 2014, the developers of ECLIPSE (Karen Walters, DC, and Mike Norworth) were honored by the Board of Trustees of the American College of Chiropractors and inducted as Fellows. These honorary degrees recognized their decades-long contributions to the chiropractic profession via a wide-ranging series of software innovations; along with their ongoing roles in an educational and advisory capacity to chiropractors across the United States.
Today, the tradition continues with the introduction of exclusive features such as Real-Time Data Flow that allows every staff member in the office to simultaneously access, edit and view updates by other staff members to the same patient data. If someone makes a change, everyone sees it instantly.
2. ECLIPSE has robust features that can handle scheduling, billing, document imaging, mail merge, reports and documentation. Every aspect of ECLIPSE was designed in-house, and every feature has received accolades from users and auditors alike.
3. ECLIPSE, used by thousands of practices nationwide, has topped multiple independent surveys by chiropractic state associations as recently as 2012 and 2013, and is typically the highest rated chiropractic software on sites such as Software Advice and Chiro Monkey.
Not only is ECLIPSE the only software in the United States used by chiropractic offices that have grown into behemoths, but these offices – with hundreds of employees – acknowledge that ECLIPSE has been indispensable to their growth. From the start, that's been the goal, and it's part of the reason Dr. Walters was able to grow her own practice to easily handle more than 100 patients daily. ECLIPSE puts more money in your pocket.
4. Prices begin at $3,126 (all-inclusive).
