Preamble: many of these issues are small, yet each issue is just that… an issue. If you take care of the small issues, then the larger issues often take care of themselves and you can focus on the larger issues… a larger, more profitable practice and more family time.


Medical Director vs. CEO, CFO & Board of Directors
“Did you check all the boxes?” Mark Studin 2017

Last week I sent a consult sharing with you a letter from a neurosurgeon recommending Dr. Lee from Utah for hospital inclusion. That letter was widely accepted by the medical director, the emergency room doctors and the attending physicians related to spine at every level. In fact, the invited him to a series of meetings requesting that he speak on mechanical spine issues because THEY want him… right now!

HOWEVER…. The CEO, CFO and Board of Directors have a much different agenda. They are concerned over compliance and going against an apparent previous decree to NOT allow chiropractors to have inclusion in the hospital system.  My personal insight is they tried this before and it was a disaster. Most likely the previous chiropractor(s) they tried, or investigated was a typical “chiro 1-step, 2-step bullshit artist” and that is incredibly transparent to all parties in hospital systems (although we think we are much smarter then those in the system… we are not…I promise you). 

In the end, it ALWAYS comes down to credentials and the credential that is apparently the arbiter with Dr. Lee and always with hospitals is formal hospital credentialing and is the reason we created the “Hospital Qualified” program. All medical personel has to have the same type of credential to gain privledges.

That is the reason we have created that program and is not only being cited by hospitals, but used by lawyers to further separate you from the “pack” when going through expert hearings (Voir Dire, Frye and Daubert) in the courts. 

In additon, I have shared with you previously that I urge you to get Hospital Qualified RIGHT NOW as the “winds of politics” is changing and so are we. I know what we have now, but cannot promise the future for the Qualification program, but once you have it… it cannot be taken away. In additon, we are going to be teaching MUCH more of how to get into hospitals in New York in September at the Primary Spine Care 4 Symposium (or you can take it online at if it is after 9/2017 and you are reading this for the first time). Based upon what we are learning going through the process with hospitals, we will be tweaking the “Qualification” requirements to meet as many needs as possible. 

These are exciting times and you MUST stay on the cutting edge to separate yourself form the “pack.” Our future success can no longer be predicated on bullcrap!!!
