We’re here at the Parker Seminars conference in Las Vegas. The Chiro Eco staff are meeting old friends and making new ones. An impressive array of new products and technologies are on display.

On Thursday, the show opened with a tribute to founder Jim Parker. Notable presentations included the essentials of ICD-10 coding by Brandi Brimhall and a look at neurological implications of chiropractic by Dan Murphy.

It’s survey time again. Specifically, our 16th Annual Fees & Reimbursements Survey.

Our surveys are the best-known and most widely distributed samplings of the chiropractic profession in the U.S. We rely on you, our readers, to participate and tell us how you’re doing.

The results are used by the U.S. Dept. of Labor Statistics and are taken into account by potential students considering whether to make chiropractic a career. The more who respond, the better our results.

The survey takes about 10 minutes to complete and the information you provide is kept entirely private and confidential. The deadline is Sunday, August 25, 2013. Take the survey here.

This second day of the seminars continues to be a blast for the attendees. “It was a 90 min session but went by so fast,” is typical of the kind of comments we’re hearing.

Today’s opener with Joe Mercola, DC, was popular and generated substantial buzz, and Terry Yochum, DC, presented twice. Mercola spoke on the future of healthcare and Yochum focused on MRI.

We’re in Vegas and this time at the Rio Hotel and Convention Center. In a sign of the strengthening economy, this show looks to be a bit larger than last year’s.

In addition to a new venue, there are new events, too. Thursday’s opening session will be a recommitment to the profession led by Fabrizio Mancini, DC.

At 11 am Thurs., the F4CP celebrates its 10th anniversay with the “Champions of Chiropractic” – go to the Amazon Ballroom to meet Jerry Rice and Gen. Becky Halstead.

Other highlight:

At 2:30, Arlan Fuhr will be presenting the Activator Method, and Larry Markson will discuss charisma.

If you have a moment, come to the exhibit hall and say hi – we’re at booth 303.

We’re here in Orlando at the Florida Chiropractic Association 2012 annual convention. Chiropractic Economics is the official media sposor as always. Attendence is strong this year.

Of particular interest was the presentation by Dr Vreeland on functional approaches to managing anxiety and stress, the plenary session on Saturday by Jennings on ethics, and Lambert and Drigger’s talk titled “PIP in 2012 and Beyond, which drew considerable comment.

The documentary Doctored by Jeff Hayes drew interested viewers on both Friday and Saturday, and the staff of Chiropractic Economics was deeply impressed by the quality of the film. We urge you to see it when you can.

On Monday, April 9, HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius signaled her intention to extend the deadline for the International Classification of Diseases (ICD)-10 coding system to Oct. 1, 2014.

The previous deadline, Oct. 1, 2013, was seen as too aggressive, given the pace at which software developers, CMS, and insurers – along with healthcare providers – are preparing to transition to the new system. The deadline for HIPPA 5010 compliance remains unchanged: June 30, 2012.

Watch for Issue 7 of Chiropractic Economics magazine. Our feature story is a rundown on where we stand with ICD-10, how it differs from ICD-9, how it will affect you, and how you can start to make some basic preparations now before things get hectic.

Friday saw a lot of buzz and action at the Sessions. We held nearly continual meetings with authors and vendors at our booth – where Rep Janice Long was usually on hand:

The highlight of the morning was a fasion show held by Dillards in support of the Foundation for Chiropractic Progress. The music, catwalks and stylish clothing had the feel of a fully professional event:
