The Analytics Morning Huddle is intended to be used every day with your whole team. This helps to improve communication & organization. The Morning Huddle will provide you with tons of valuable data AND the reports you would have to run manually in your typical team meeting. All you have to do is point & click!

In this article, we'll review:

Access your Morning Huddle by clicking the Coffee Cup icon found on the left hand menu of your Analytics dashboard & get ready to be blown away! πŸ‘

Note: It is very important that you attach ADA production codes to the scheduled appointments in your Practice Management Software. If the scheduled appointments are not associated with a production code, Dental Intelligence will not be able to recognize the appointment. This might result in the Dental Intelligence Tomorrow tab showing a date that differs from the next scheduled day in your Practice Management Software.

Review Yesterday

Looking at what happened yesterday on a daily basis allows you to keep a pulse on what's happening in your practice! If you've set goals, this is where you are able to keep track of your progress. Celebrate wins and talk about how to improve other areas!

Important Note: The yesterday view shows the last day your office had production. This means on Monday you will see Friday as yesterday. If your office is closed for a week, you will see yesterday as the last day with production before you closed.

Tips & Tricks for Yesterday

Use the Yesterday Headline to get additional information about performance metrics and potential opportunities.

Customize the Metrics that appear in the Yesterday tab to identify the most important statistics for you and your team to discuss each day. Simply click the Edit Metrics button to start.

Take Action Today

When looking at today in your Morning Huddle, you want to make it all about the opportunities to provide better care for each one of you patients!

Note: Today and Tomorrow will have the same format and metrics available, however these tabs will show different dates & different schedules.

Tips & Tricks for Today
