(5138) Evaluating a Practice

Thursday, October 5, 2023 from 2:00 - 3:30 PM ET
Location: S330D, CE: 1.5

In this interactive session, Dr. Suzanne Ebert will walk through some examples of how KPI’s can tell the story of a practice’s health. Together, you will explore several typical practice statistics, such as new patients and average lab fees, to determine how you can use those numbers to infer how the practice operates. You will learn how to evaluate a practice’s processes to decide if you can thrive in the practice — or if you can make improvements that will boost the bottom line. You will also practice calculating how much your take-home pay might vary based on production, adjusted production, or collections.
