Appointment Analysis Report
Report Purpose: Use this report to find out how the practice hours are being used.
Recommended: regularly print a summary of appointments (many practices analyse their appointments weekly).
This report looks at the appointment book within a specific date range. It can be broken down by provider and a daily, weekly or monthly summary, depending on your requirements.
The bottom of the report lists all of the above in detail, including how the figures are calculated.
Requirements to keep accurate appointment data:
As the information is taken from the appointment book, it is important that the status and information on the appointments, your providers rotas, blocks are all accurate.
You need to use the Arrivals Door feature in the Appointment Workflow to ensure that patients are
being checked as having Arrived,
being properly Moved To Chair,
being marked as Appointment Complete.
