  • Cory Frogley

    DC

    Cory Frogley DC

    Cory was born the 10th child of Ron and Lee Frogley. His father was the Executive Vice President to David Palmer at the time Cory joined the family. Being raised at the footsteps of Palmer College, Cory got to enjoy all the benefits of a naturally healthy childhood. Cory had 5 of his 6 brothers become Chiropractors and with that influence knew at an early age that he would also like to follow his father’s footsteps. After graduating with honors from Palmer on the very same day his father retired at the age of 76, Cory began his career as his father finished his. There was a feeling of “passing the torch” on that day to serve our profession.

    Now Dr. Frogley, Cory joined one of his brother’s practices to develop his skills where he quickly learned how much he loved both the patient and the business side of running a practice. Cory started his own practice in 2003 while furthering his education in business administration. After several years of building a consulting firm focused on practice administration Cory fell in love with the data generated by the doctor/team/patient experience. Seeing that Chiropractic, as a profession, was lacking “big data”, Cory decided to co-found a practice data analytics company named BlueIQ. Cory’s focus was on helping Chiropractors learn to grow their patient impact by making better healthcare and business decisions focused on data. BlueIQ now services over 1000 doctors and growing fast. Cory’s greatest desire is to bring greater research data from the real world of chiropractic, from the doctors themselves.

    Course Description 

    Every chiropractor is treating athletes from pee-wee to high school to the professionals, and many high school teams are taking a play from “The Pro’s” and beginning to include chiropractors as part of the on-site medical staff. As the popularity of the team chiropractor grows, we all need to be prepared to handle both the treatment and the documentation appropriately. When you are with an athlete on the field, at practice or in the training room, efficiency is key. This course will be held in an interview fashion with Chiropractors from Pro Baseball teams & Pro Hockey teams. These interviews will outline the differences of documentation when treating athletes in your office vs. in the training room, when to refer to other professionals on the sports medicine team, as well as how you get paid and when/where to send the bills. The Sports Medicine Licensure Clarity Act of 2018 allows an athlete or a team to travel and treat in other states, but how you document the coordination of care during travel might depend on the type of team or athlete you are traveling with. Whether you are considering being a chiropractor for a local or professional team, knowing the details of this class will aid your communication with the community that you treat! 

    Learning Objectives 

    • Identify when to treat/document/record your patient-athlete encounter as well as what CPT codes are appropriate 

    • Recognize when to document the coordination of care when referring to other professionals 

    • Differentiate the treatment protocols between athletes in the office vs. training room
