PHOENIX, Sept. 19 /PRNewswire/ -- Activator Methods International (http://www.activator.com), pioneer in chiropractic instrument manufacturing and technique training for 40 years, has formed an alliance with three leading chiropractic companies to create the Activator Advantage seminar series. The series, designed to help doctors improve the level of care they provide patients, kicked off September 15th in St. Louis.
"What's new about the Activator Advantage seminars is that we are focusing first on the patient," says Dr. Arlan Fuhr CEO, co-founder and inventor of the Activator Method. "In the past, companies have placed a lot of focus on managing the practice. At times this has resulted in less than satisfactory service to patients. Our new Activator Advantage seminars teach doctors how to ethically improve patient satisfaction and outcomes through technique, documentation, technology and management solutions."
The Activator Advantage, formed this year, includes contributions from DC Mentors, Inc., (http://www.dcmentors.com), MyoVision, (http://www.myovision.com) and Future Health, Inc., (http://www.futurehealthsoftware.com). Together the three companies along with Activator Methods make up the building blocks of the Activator Advantage: Technique, Technology, Documentation and Outcomes. According to Dr. Fuhr, the alliance works because it brings the right disciplines together at the right time in the right way. "We've found in our own pilot clinics that when you put all of these systems together it clicks for the patient and the doctor."
DC Mentors, headed by Dr. Frank Sovinsky, offers a patient care system that honors the intelligence of the patient. Through his program chiropractors will be able to identify the emotional triggers that impact a patient's likelihood to follow through with treatment recommendations.
MyoVision, founded by NASA-trained researcher David Marcarian, is the maker of the only American Medical Association-approved surface electromyography (sEMG) machine available. Through the Activator Advantage seminars MyoVision will be training doctors how to use the device to detect and visually display the impact chiropractic adjustments have on patients.
Future Health, headed by Dr. Steven J. Kraus, brings patient documentation to the digital age. The system includes x-ray storage/display, range of motion documentation, intelligent billing, electronic health records and patient scheduler.
Activator Methods International, Ltd. is the most widely used low-force adjusting technique in the world, with over 2,100 chiropractors passing the Activator exam on an annual basis to become Proficiency Rated. The technique is recognized for its leadership in research and education, with over 134 peer-reviewed research articles to its credit and educating over 40,000 chiropractors since its beginning 40 years ago.
