James Carlburg has achieved more than 30 years of
healthcare software development productivity.
Beginning with Physicians Digital Resources, he has written over
a million lines of software code.
Since 1989, Mr. Carlburg has seen the days of virtually
unregulated chiropractic simultaneous billing, later to be scrutinized
in the early 1990's creating the need of the essence of dictation
These chiropractic requirements contributed to
the conception to random text generation engine in
1992. In the mid-1990's, managed care styled as HMO's, PPO's and
capitated care identified a void for what didn't exist in the
chiropractic profession at the time – seamless integration between the
dictation quality patient documentation and high-volume
appointment-centric office management software.
This concept gave birth to a chiropractic billing
software, a design which took several
conceptual design steps to "wrap" the concepts of competing office
management software. Whereas competing office management software
focused on entering transactions (merely as a cash register and
generally used in the back-office the following day from super-bill
travel cards), the chiropractic billing focused on setting appointments and ensuring
that appointments were kept by patients, and as such, was designated to
be used in real-time at the front desk.
Setting and ensuring that patients kept their
appointments was always a focus of the chiropractic billing software. Billing CPT codes,
processing insurance and patient statements came along naturally as the
result of patients and keeping their appointments.
