Use this report to identify how new patients heard about the practice or about a particular Provider. You can track how effective an advertising medium has been, or to identify patients who are referring friends and family to the practice.
Patients are only reported if they have had a completed appointment. Failed To Arrive patients are not included in the report.
It is not necessary for patients to have paid to be included in the report.

Patients who are not owned by a Provider are only included in reporting when the report is for all Providers.
