Within the dental industry, it is commonly understood and agreed upon that when patients accept treatment that has been presented to them it wasn’t the result of one person’s efforts. Most of the time, when a patient accepts treatment, it is because they had positive interactions with a few different people at the practice, leading them to accept the proposed treatment.
Because of this, Analytics has designed the Treatment Teams function! It is intended to show the case acceptance performance of different “teams” of people in the practice working to get patients to accept the treatment they have presented to them. The Treatment Team that is automatically added after syncing is based off of what providers had codes walked out on the ledger. It is not based on what providers are attached to the appointment. From there, you can view the case acceptance performance of different Treatment Teams on the Case metrics in the Provider Pulse.
