Hether Macro for Chirotouch EHR-My Story

Written By James J. Hether, D.C. on January 29, 2018

     To introduce myself, I am Dr. James J. Hether.  I am a 1996 graduate of Life Chiropractic College.  I am a practicing chiropractor in DeLand, FL.  Besides seeing patients, I teach anatomy and biology at Daytona State College.  This includes in person lecture, on line lectures and in class labs. It is my teaching of online classes that helped me create the Hether Macro for Chirotouch.  I went digital with Chirotouch in October of 2013.  I chose Chirotouch based on its ability to customize the Macros.  It was this customization that allows me to continue seeing patients in the way I have been, without learning someone else's exam.  Not only are note clear and easy to read, I have created home exercises, patient education, recommendations and alerts.  I can monitor my patient's progress through Functional Outcome Assessment and Activity of Daily Living.  I can create short term goals and monitor their progress.  I can share this information with the patient's primary care medical provider, keeping them information on their patient's condition.  

     I spent about 180 hours in designing the Hether Macro. I am selling my macro for $500.00 to help other chiropractors save time and aggravation of creating something from scratch.  This is less than 6% of the cost I paid for Chirotouch.  I really enjoy the detail that I have put into both the exams and daily notes.  I have created what I call a right sided flow. This means that on the right of the iPad, I have anticipated what is to come next.  This prevent back tracking and speeds up the note taking.  A typical examination with one or two complaints takes about 15 minutes or less and generates a 9-12 page report.  This report I go over with the patient on their report of findings visit and I fax this report to their medical doctor.  Once the medical doctors read my exam and see that I am doing the same exam that they would have done, or more detailed, I started getting medical referrals for chiropractic treatment.  

     Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions and Chirotouch EHR or the use of the Hether Macro.  I have videos on YouTube, demonstrating it usage. I look forward to speaking with you.
