Software and Attorney Mail

By Michael Dorausch, D.C.

A chiropractor in Little Ferry New Jersey sent me a brochure regarding some chiropractic management software. I’ve posted a few times that have been seeking out software that’s going to work for the types of chiropractic offices I’m familiar with.

This particular software was made by a company called Eclipse and the screenshots in the brochure made the package look like it was designed for Windows 95. I don’t know if the software is any good, but they certainly could’ve used some better formatting to not make the application look so archaic.

I ended up talking to quite a few chiropractors this past weekend about the software they’re using in their offices. With some packages ranging around $15,000, and none that have completely satisfy the needs of the over 20 chiropractors I spoke to, we decided to get together and talk to some folks about having a package designed based on the types of practices we have. I got volunteered to head up the project so I’m going to look into some open source possibilities and see what opportunities there are to develop a platform that will perform on Linux operating systems and Windows. I don’t know many chiropractor offices running ubuntu but we’ve gotta start somewhere.

I also received another invitation from a personal injury attorney to attend a conference of the Torrance Marriott. The event was complementary and included dinner and it’s actually a great way for attorneys to market their services to chiropractors. I receive more e-mails and phone calls from attorneys then I do from any other group. Almost all are seeking out chiropractors to see their clients and they’re performing local searches and discovering information about Planet Chiropractic.

If anyone has attorney offices in the United States they’d like to recommend you’re welcome to add their information in the comments or e-mail me so I can add their information to a database of law firms that handle personal injury cases.



  1. Michael, drop me a line. The local Linux User Group may be very interested in this project!

  2. Michael,
    I found your site today and think it is great. I read the comments about finding a software SOAP note program that doesn’t look like it is from Win 3.1. I have been a practicing chiropractor for 20 years and wrote a program that is entirely touch screen driven, works on windows or mac can be networked and is extremely stable. It is called Touchnotes QuickSOAP and can be viewed at:
    We are launching the network version at the Vegas 2008 Parker Seminar Feb 7-9. I would be willing to donate a percentage of the sale of each copy to your favorite charity or chiropractic organization if you found it worthy to recommend to your user group.
    Thanks and keep up the great site!

  3. Michael, I read your blog post and wanted to let you know about a project we have been working on. We have built an entirely web-based practice management system. It is delivered as a Software as a Service so there are no big up front costs. We have worked with over 20 chiropractors in developing our software and are continuing to seek feedback to make our system as user friendly and effective as possible.

    We would love to talk to you about what you are looking for and see if we can deliver that for you. Being web based we are able to implement changes to our software very rapidly. Since we released our REDPiNE Services in October we have been releasing updates to it at least once a month. If you are interested we would love to give you a presentation of our system and then you can decide if you want to talk further or go a different direction. You can go to our website for our phone number.

    Thanks for your time.
