Tracking Outcomes: Case Study #3 - Male With 15 Years Of Back Pain and Sciatica

Posted by Dr. Jeff Winternheimer D.C. on Mon, Feb 08, 2016 @ 05:19 PM

Patient_Outcome_Girl3a.jpgI recently travelled to the Harvard Business School to discuss how to better serve our patients through the publishing of patient outcomes. It is our belief that by publishing these outcomes, patients will be able to identify what is the best course of action to take to treat their conditions. As a result, we are going to be publishing our catalog of over 3000 patient outcomes one-by-one, so that our patients can better understand the outcomes for the conditions that we treat.

If you do not know how to read the following case study or need a refresher on it, read the instructions in Case Study #1 by clicking here.
