Bone Health Institute Enters 2014
Cedar Valley Bone Health Institute of Iowa is growing. Added staff and increased hours accomodates increased numbers of patients. New programs will roll out in early 2014. BoneDocBlog.com now exceeds 250 posts over 3 years.
Adding Nurse Practitioner Katie has expanded our hours to full days. Working together we can see more than twice as many patients. She is covering most of our return visits and doing lots of patient teaching.
Medical Assistant Kim joined in October. She has quickly learned the details of DXA and VFA. Kim also completes most of our patient intake and deals with pre-authorizations.
Receptionist Shari is managing scheduling, initial patient intake, and the ever increasing electronic “paperwork”. She is the familiar face to our established patients.
I have finally found an aspect of our mandated Electronic Medical Records that I like. We now print detailed Patient Instructions along with a Clinical Summary to give to each patient before they leave the office.
More about our new programs as they roll out over the next few weeks.
Let us assist you on the road to better Bone Health.
