Production per Hour
What is the Production per Hour Goal?
Production Per Hour (PPH) allows you to view an average of how much money you produce per hour you work!
Production Goals are calculated in Dental Intelligence based on two simple things:
Production per Hour
Let's say for example that I work 8 hours usually, and I need my daily goal to be $4500... Below is an example of the calculation that Dental Intelligence makes to determine your goals:
$4500 / 8 = $562.50 per hour
So, with that, I would make my Production per Hour goal $562.50 and then make sure my Scheduled Clinical Hours are set to 8 and Dental Intelligence takes care of the rest!
Production per Visit
How to Calculate a Production Per Visit Goal
Each provider should have a Production Per Visit (PPV) goal. Production Per Visit is the best way to determine the effectiveness of the provider in their efficiency and in getting treatment acceptance.
Production Per Visit is similar to Production Per Hour but calculates the total production divided by the number of completed visits for the selected time frame.
Set Production per Visit Goal
Before you set this goal you will need to find historical information to identify a realistic goal for the provider. Follow the steps below to learn how.
Go to the Provider Pulse
Go to the Production per Visit Metric
Change your time period to a Range of dates / Month / Year for a historical perspective
Look at the Providers and write down what their Production per Visit was for the range of dates that you selected
Based on historical performance we can set goals for each individual. As they consistently beat these goals we can increase them.
In this case it would be a good goal to set the Production per Visit for IS at $800/visit, JO at $500/visit, and SS (hygienist) at $200/visit.
If the providers are doing essentially the same job, seeing the same type of patients it may be a good idea to make their production per visit the same as both should producing at the same rate. In this case we would put them both at $800 production per visit.
Use this data to then enter in the Production Per Visit goal according to the steps listed above!
