What Do Successful Practice Owners Have in Common?

So many struggling  physical therapy practice owners focus all of their attention just on the critical tasks that must be done and, often times, little else.   Things like compliance, providing a support team, ensuring the clinic is equipped and functional, getting patients documented, and paying the team and the suppliers consume all of the owners time and attention.

metrics for physical therapists

Top 10 Metrics You Should Track

What Metrics Should You Track in Your Practice?

Our clients have determined that these are the most important metrics to track in your practice:

  • Collections
  • Patients Visits
  • Charges
  • New Patients
  • No Shows
  • No Future Appointments
  • Accounts Receivable
  • Unbilled Visits
  • Unsigned Notes
  • Claims needing to be corrected by the Practice

They’re all related to each other and they all affect each other.  These Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) must be measured to know the health of your Practice.  Some practices want to track other metrics and that’s easily changed within our PT billing software.  Which ones do you track?  Do you even care about these numbers?

How do you track these metrics? Do you have a tool to monitor them with a simple glance at a chart? The tools to track these numbers are built into our PT billing software and your Practice Success Coach will help you to understand the metrics and their relationships to the other metrics. Your Coach will help you set-up a Practice Health Monitor and that’s where you can see these numbers at a glance at a radar chart.

Other tools are available in our software as well.  Learn more with the free webinar that can be viewed right on this page.
