How Much Time Does Each Patient Need?
Do you know how long it takes for the average tech workup in your office? How long does the average full exam take? Having good quantifiable answers to these questions will help you have more efficient scheduling and address training for staff if necessary. The Comlite LAN4000 Signaling Software allows you to assign buttons to be timers. You can label the buttons for individual techs or doctors in your office. Simply start the timer when you begin a workup or exam and stop it when you are done. The information is stored and available to print out (see below) The report will show all the times for each tech or doctor along with the overall average time for each person.
Time is money. Take the guesswork out of your scheduling. Practice Management surveys indicate that patients should be able to get in and out of your office in 45 minutes. Using the timing functions on the LAN4000 will help you achieve your highest level of efficiency!
