Learn How Many Patients in Your Practice are Overdue

The average practice has 750 to 1000 patients overdue for their recall appointment. This is largely due to weak or lacking recall and reactivation systems. Patients get left behind because no one goes back and works the past due list and they stop sending cards and letters. Most practices are surprised to learn how many people need to come in, especially when they have open time on their schedule most every day.

To learn how many lost patients you have in your practice you will need to generate a report utilizing your computer software. You want to find out how many patients haven’t been in six months or longer. Go back three to five years. You may have to call your software support to learn how to get the report you need. You will be surprised.
