You can figure out just how much time and money your practice will be able to save when switching to xDocs. Simply replace the assumptions below with your own practice numbers and complete the calculations.
- Your average monthly revenue: $20,000.
- Your average patient visits per month: 280.
- Your monthly hours of operation: 180.
- Your average documentation time per patient: 10 minutes.
Calculations: Potential savings with reduced documentation time of 2 minutes:
- Your average time per visit: 180 hours/ 280 visits = 39 minutes
- Time with patient: 39 minutes – 2 minutes= 37 minutes
- Your efficiency: 37 minutes/39 minutes = 95%
=> Total Monthly documentation time with 2-minute documentation time:
280 visits x 2 minutes = 9 hours
Compare to efficiency with documentation time of 10 minutes:
- Time with patient: 39 minutes – 10 minutes = 29 minutes
- Your efficiency: 29 minutes/39 minutes = 74%
- Your hourly value: $20,000/(180 hours x 74%) = $150
=> Total Monthly documentation time with 10-minute documentation time:
280 visits x 10 minutes = 47 hours
=> Time Savings with 2-minute documentation time:47 hours – 9 hours = 38 hours
By reducing your documentation time from ten to two minutes, however, you can save $67,200 per year ($5,600 per month). Additionally, you will be saving 38 hours per month that you can now spend on treating more patients.
