Did you know that the practice management system you have drives your practice profitability and may need a tune-up? The reports you run daily, weekly, and monthly are the lifeline to practice profitability. That information measures doctor and hygiene production, collections, adjustments, continuing care, referral sources, treatment plans, case acceptance, and schedules, which are just a few of the areas that we get either accurate or erroneous data. An effective practice analysis should be performed regularly and includes:
- Evaluating the practice management software program and checking the system setups for proper coding, etc.
- Running reports to track practice numbers and determine the health of the practice.
