Decide what type of procedures you want to focus on getting accepted (most opt for crown, bridges, implants).
Create a Patient Finder filter to find patients who have this type of unscheduled treatment.
If you take insurance, you may also want to filter by those that have insurance remaining.
You may also want to exclude any patients who have large outstanding balances.

Step 5: In LocalMed, add specific appointment types for key treatment you are most interested in getting scheduled
Setting up specific appointment types you want get scheduled in LocalMed allows you to send those link to patients who have that kind of treatment.
Follow the Add a Reason for Visit process.
Provide the name and description of what treatment this link will schedule.
Select “schedule request” as the scheduling channel (this ensures it is only visible when you send it out so it will not be available to everyone).
It is recommended that you do this for each patient finder filter you created in the previous step to ensure you can send them a link specific to the treatment they have outstanding.

Increase Treatment Acceptance for Patients In Office
Step 1: Use the Morning Huddle to review yesterday’s performance
Without monitoring how you are performing it is hard to make steady improvements. The Morning Huddle allows you to quickly and easily see how your team performed yesterday with getting treatment accepted.
Celebrate wins & quickly discuss an opportunity for improvement
It is important that you keep it positive when discussing past performance.
We recommend you start by finding what went well yesterday and promoting as many good things as possible.
If there were multiple areas you fell short yesterday, pick one to focus on and make better today. There is no use in overwhelming your team with everything they need to fix.

Step 2: Review patients coming in today w/ Unscheduled tx
