Connect Chiropractic identified that cost was the biggest barrier for people needing professional spinal care. In response, it introduced a koha-based fee system for its services.
The Koha Fee System has had a ripple effect of positive impact. More than 30 not-for-profit and community organisations are involved in the Community Connect Programme that helps identify people needing treatment. Connect Chiropractic then ensures that the right care is financially available.
Connect Chiropractic also runs a programme that helps to support community organisations. Three different community groups are profiled each month with the winner receiving a percentage of the practice’s revenue for that month.
By 2022 it aims to have contributed more than $1,000,000 to the community and to be providing care to more than 1,000 patients every week.
