    Track Trends

    Track your office's trending performance and uncover seasonality by using the calendar navigation in the upper right corner to toggle between timeframes.

    Appointment Attendance

    One of the key drivers of your no show rate is your confirmation rate. Confirmations reduce no-shows, and RevenueWell can help by automating this task. Click the lightbulb icon on the No Show Rate & Confirmation Rate cards to learn strategies RevenueWell recommends to drive up your confirmation rate and drive down no shows!

    Treatment Plans

    Better understand the health of your treatments business (as opposed to hygiene) and how you can improve. Case Acceptance tracks the percentage of patients who accept at least one of the services they were presented. This looks at days when patients were presented treatment plans and determines the percentage with an accepted service.

    Case Acceptance data is available for customers on all practice management systems except multi-location groups using Dentrix Enterprise, Denticon, Ascend, & Cloud 9. 

    Click on the light bulb in any card to read about how to benchmark this result and get tips to improve it.

    Hygiene Department

    A thriving hygiene department is vital to keeping patients healthy and - for most General Practices - powering a profitable restorative business. We want to help you understand if you're getting the expected return from investments in your hygiene department.

    The main key performance indicator tracked here is the number of hygiene visits. Another metric we are tracking closely is reappointment, which is the share of patients seen for hygiene that have their next hygiene appointment scheduled.

    Click on the lightbulb icon to read about how to understand & improve this result. Get tips to decrease your no-show rate, improve your reappointment rate, try one of the new tactics we have outlined to recover from a late cancellation, & more!

    Patient Base

    This metric is intended to drive awareness to the overall size of your patient base. It will show you how many new patients you have acquired, how many are lost, and what impact that has on the size of your overall patient base. 

    Click the light bulb icon on any of the cards in this section to read our recommendations on how you can leverage RevenueWell features to dazzle new patients, nail the in-office experience, provide continuous care from afar, and improve reappointment!


    Prevent No-Shows

    Prevent No Shows by Directing Patients to Notify Your Office of Reschedule Requests Via Text

    Some no show patients know in advance they can’t make it… but don’t tell you! No shows make your day chaotic, so you’re well aware it’s better to get ample notice when a patient needs to reschedule. Did you know you can easily tweak your text confirmations to get that advanced notice more often?

    By default, your confirmation texts include the snippet “Respond C to confirm or P to get a call from us.” Some of the patients -- who know they can’t make their appointment -- won’t respond because they don’t want a call. And some of them would have told you if they knew they could text it.

    Here’s a tip -- in your Appointment Confirmation Settings, scroll down to the First Reminder. Click on the drop down that says “Email Confirmation” and change it to Text Confirmation: Insights1.png

    Then click Edit Message, and change the text to something like this:

      Insights2.png

    Note: don’t remove the C or P prompts, because C tells the system to mark the appointment confirmed and P gives you an alert that the patient wants a call.

    When a patient responds R, you’ll get this alert:

    You’ll know immediately to move the appointment to your unscheduled list so the spot can be rebooked. And you can respond via text to get them rescheduled.                

    Don’t forget to apply the same change to your other confirmation messages if desired: the ones for families, the Spanish version, and your Second Attempts as well.

      • Hygiene Visits: This is a count of appointments with a hygiene service code billed within 7 days.
      • Reappointment: the percentage of patients seen for hygiene who are scheduled to come back.

    Patient Base

      • Active Patients: The number of patient who had a completed appointment within the last 18 months.
      • New Patients: The number of patients who completed their first appointments (no shows excluded).
