F4CP to Attend Institute for HealthCare Consumerism (IHC) FORUM & Expo

This month, the F4CP will sponsor Dr. Bill Updyke as a speaker at the annual IHC FORUM & Expo, June 23-25, 2015, in Atlanta, GA.

On June 25, 2015, 10:30 a.m.—11:30 a.m., Dr. Updyke will lead the workshop, "Cisco Attributes Clinic Success to the Selection of all the Right Specialty Services," focusing on the integration of chiropractic services within on-site corporate health clinics.

On-site corporate health clinics have evolved into an expanded model that reflects post-health care reforms and addresses challenges: control and reduce costs, enhance access to primary care, and function as a medical home for employees and their dependents. There is increased focus and demand for offering services that effectively address conditions that are both prevalent and costly — for example, musculoskeletal pain and specifically low back pain (LBP).

This session will present the latest evidence supporting the integration of chiropractic services as a trifecta solution– reduced cost, outstanding patient satisfaction and excellent patient outcomes — and offer an insider perspective to the operations and outcomes of Cisco’s on-site health clinic.

The IHC is the only multi-platform, collaborative environment focused solely on innovative health and benefit management. It offers employers, TPAs, solution providers, brokers, advisors, consultants and administrators of health plan providers a place to learn, connect and share.

For more information about the event, please visit www.theihccforum.com/2015atlanta and/or read the F4CP release here.

 
Preparing for Athletic TIPS™ Launch

Athletic TIPS™ is gearing up to launch its program publically later this month. For the past two years, the team has focused on the completion of a five-star training curriculum, certification of dozens of doctors to conduct community workshops and completion of developmental activities related to its website and fundraising platform. Although minor adjustments are still being made to ensure success of the program upon launching, the team is positive about the program’s present position and its launch schedule.

The launch of Athletic TIPS™ will include numerous media activities, including distribution of several press releases, advertisements and advertorials, as well as focused campaigns on social media. Check out the first Athletic TIPS™ ad below, which will soon run in national publications.
