AASP BEGINS MATCH-MAKING CHIROPRACTORS WITH NEUROSURGEONS
Computer programmers for the
American Academy of Spine Physicians worked hard in May to develop a user
friendly online resource which members can access to facilitate a referral
relationship with one or more neurosurgeons in their area. The program
essentially serves as an automated match-making function which can be used to
introduce a local neurosurgeon to the local chiropractic member, to the benefits
of cooperative spinecare, and to the benefits of membership with the AASP. This
approach will help facilitate the development of regional interdisciplinary
spinecare referral networks and it allows the AASP to focus on developing
networks in areas where there are currently chiropractic members.
The AASP is committed to
helping its membership achieve efficient cooperative spinecare. To use the
technology the AASP member simply logs into the member area of the AASP website
and goes to the designated region titled Referral Network along the left margin
of the member welcome page. The member is prompted to submit the name or names
and contact information of neurosurgeons they would like to work with. The
contact information is submitted to the AASP online and is subsequently placed
into a database which is used to generate a personalized letter to the
neurosurgeon(s) from the AASP. The letter of introduction is printed at the AASP
office of member services and sent to the neurosurgeon via regular mail along
with an application to join the AASP. The AASP member receives email
confirmation when the letter is sent along with recommendations for follow up.
The AASP believes that this
revolutionary approach is the first of its kind provided by a national
healthcare organization. Through the AASP online match-making (referral network
area) function members of the American Academy of Spine Physicians can directly
search for board certified neurosurgeons in their area by name or geographic
location. The member can then apply the contact information on the AASP find a
neurosurgeon template which they submit to the AASP.
