Production is the starting point from which collections are derived. An increase in production will typically result in net profits. By correlating your production needs to the goals you have set, you can begin scheduling to reach this number and succeed in obtaining your desired goals.

Note: This metric is calculated retroactively, meaning that Dental Intelligence uses historical data in order to determine the current outcomes.
