MaxHealth Chiropractic Brings HIPAA Compliance Mobile

MaxHealth doctors leap in celebration

Kelly Murie was a cross-country runner at Durango High School in Las Vegas who had to deal with constant injuries. Chiropractic kept him going between workouts, and a lifelong appreciation for the practice was born.

Fast-forward through chiro school and Murie, along with his brother, Adam, opened MaxHealth in 2012, that specializes in doing muscle work prior to doing any adjustments. In less than five years, MaxHealth expanded to three clinics with 18 licensed therapists and four chiropractors.

But carving out a niche in the Las Vegas chiropractic world isn't the edge of the Murie brothers' ambitions. They're also working on an app to facilitate physician referrals, called RAPP.

"If we're referring to a pain place, or a physical therapy place, it allows us to track where patients have gone," Kelly Murie said.

By using software to track referrals, it allows the clinic to stay organized, efficiently following their patients on the road to recovery and ensuring the best outcomes possible.

They hope to launch RAPP to the public in the next three to six months (anyone interested in an invitation to the app's beta testing process can request an invite from Murie), but the app itself needs to be certified as HIPAA compliant in order to be of widespread benefit to healthcare providers. Ideal Business Partners' Caleb Zobrist is working closely with the Muries on RAPP to ensure patient privacy is safeguarded.

"We're trying to protect patient information because we have an obligation to do so. That's the biggest challenge," Kelly Murie said. "You hear horror stories that people almost unknowingly, or because they're lazy, don't protect their patient health information to a certain standard, then they get hit with a big fine. Here we are establishing a way to share protected health information and that's a stumbling block when you talk to other providers."
