Provider Bonus Announcement; CCMI Annual Meeting – Save the Date!; Best Chiropractors of 2015; Patient Safety Awareness Week
Provider Bonus AnnouncementWe are pleased to announce Chiropractic Care of Minnesota, Inc.’s Board of Directors has approved a 2015 bonus payment for the ChiroCare network. Members who receive a bonus are doing so in recognition of their ongoing commitment to CCMI’s Mission, which is to “improve the quality of life for our communities by delivering high value healthcare network and support services.”
A provider who receives a bonus does so based on their patient volume, billing patterns and efficiency of treatment, as compared to other network providers. These factors help reflect the degree that each provider contributed to funds being available for this bonus. Therefore, providers who exhibited an approach that more closely aligns with ChiroCare’s best practices were awarded a bonus, verses providers using higher levels of services, passive modalities and manipulation coding.
Bonus amounts are based on claims paid between the dates of January 1, 2015, and December 31, 2015.
Payment to those who will receive a bonus will be made through direct deposit to the claims payment bank account on record for their business. Additional information about the bonuses, including specific bonus amounts for those who receive them, will be mailed to providers in the next couple of weeks.
CCMI Annual Meeting - Save the Date!We are excited to announce our annual meeting is planned for April 28, 2016, and will take place at our Shoreview, Minnesota office from 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.
In an effort to be good stewards of our resources, this will be our last in-person meeting. In addition to our annual report, a recording of the annual meeting will be made available on ChiroCare.com following the event. We will notify you via our News Flash newsletter once they are available.

Patient Safety Awareness WeekNational Patient Safety Foundation and United for Patient Safety present 2016 Patient Safety Awareness Week: March 13-19.
Did you know, medical errors cause the death of approximately 44,000 to 98,000 hospital patients per year, according to United for Patient Safety? While every day should be patient safety day, the National Patient Safety Foundation developed this annual campaign to increase public awareness about patient safety among health care professionals and the general public.
Here are two simple ways to apply patient safety in your clinic:
- Infection control through adequate handwashing and clean tables
- Complete patient history reviews
Patient safety is a public health issue and we must work together to ensure patients are kept safe and free from harm. To learn how you can join the national campaign, visit United For Patient Safety.
