This report is used to print a report listing the top paying patients referred to the practice or dentist, grouped according to the recorded Referral Source.
This report can be used to track how effective an advertising medium has been or to identify patients who are the most profitable by referring friends and family to the practice.
This can be an extremely useful report as you will be able to see very quickly if your advertising methods are being profitable enough to warrant keeping the advert running.
The resulting report can include the following:
Phone numbers for Referral Source
Patients referred by each source (if ‘Include Details’ is ticked)
Total amount receipted and invoiced for each patient (if include details is ticked otherwise just the total amount receipted and invoiced for the referral source will show).
