Treatment Acceptance in Fuse (Video)
Case Metric Definitions:
When a patient comes into the office they are "diagnosed" when procedures are added to their treatment planner.
What is Acceptance?
A procedure is considered accepted when a patient schedules procedure on an appointment or when is it completed that same day.
When a patient accepts anything that was added to their treatment planner that day (diagnosed), that is a patient acceptance. For example, if 5 procedures were added to their treatment planner and they scheduled 1 of those procedures that would be 100% patient acceptance.
When a patient accepts procedures that were added to their treatment planner that day (diagnosed), the dollars accepted versus what was presented make up the treatment acceptance. For example, if 5 procedures were added to their treatment planner totaling $1000 and they scheduled 1 of those procedures for $200 that would be 10% treatment acceptance.
