Group testing is one of the key elements that allows our mobile testing service to be practical and affordable.
Testing groups of five to 20 patients at a time allows the costs of our travel time, supplies, printed materials, equipment, etc to be reduced greatly for each person involved while still making the mobile concept viable as a business model.
However, beyond the obvious advantage of improving cost-effectiveness, an even more important .... set of elements has become apparent:
* It is easy for docs and staff to periodically build excitement and in-office promotion for events. That excitement is contagious, gets shared, and stimulates referrals.
* Docs and staff become fluent and cohesive around the message of providing new levels of service.
* Nutritional patients will all be at roughly the same stages of management for several weeks. Docs greatly appreciate what this does for their scheduling and "sanity". No more switching gears repeatedly between adjustive and nutritional patients. Patient flow and program management become smooth while ....discussions become honed by repetition and proximity.
* A great amount of training, teaching, and discussion can be built into the group event. Consider the time saved by explaining the basics of a BIA one time rather than 20. Multiply that by zinc tally, saliva pH, etc. Hours saved. Patients learning from each others' questions. Patients' interest will remain heightened while the whole experience unfolds. Questions and teachable moments will be benefit everyone present.
One of our most valuable services provided is our help in setting up events. We have pointers on logistics, verbage, printed materials, etc.
And we can tailor our presence to your desires. We can essentially run the whole event or just perfom the role of subcontracted technicians. We can return to your clinic to provide the reports of findings, provide that service remotely, or consult only with the doc so that he can report findings personally to his patients.
What doc doesn't have a handful of patients they know could benefit from a better nutritional program? But don't those patients require a lot of thought and time compared to our typical chiropractic adjustive appointments?
