Found on the performance board, this tool will include Source Data in the Menu icon of all Rescheduled Patients for the date range selected. View definitions and additional information by selecting the Information ( i ) icon.

Hint: If you click into any section of the Unscheduled Patients Pie Chart, it will populate a list of all patients who completed treatment within that time frame and are currently unscheduled for any future appointment. These sections include 0 - 6 months, 6 - 9 months, 9 - 12 months, 12-18 months, 18 - 36 months. In this same list, you will be able to view their total unscheduled treatment amount to see what production opportunity you have with these patients. Dental Intel will automatically highlight patients that are past due and unscheduled for Hygiene in RED:
