Using the KPIs Huddle Dashboard
KPIs or, Key Performance Indicators, are discrete data representations that offices can use for decision making and planning. KPIs are part of the Curve Playbook Huddle Dashboards.
Note - Only users logged in with the 'Reporting' role can view the KPI dashboard.
What is displayed in the KPI dashboard
- Total AR over 90 days - This KPI shows accounts receivable amount owed to the practice from both patients and insurance that is past due over 90 days. Below the dollar value is the percentage of total practice AR that this portion represents. It is recommended that AR over 90 should not exceed 10% of the practice AR.
- Report To Run: RP Aging with no filters.
- How to Compare Numbers: Add the column 'Insurance Total Owing >90 Days' and 'Patient Total Owing >90 Days' to get the Dollar value for AR over 90 days. The percentage is a representation of how much that dollar value represents as the portion of your total AR that is over 90. This is calculated by dividing the total of 'Insurance Total Owing >90 Days' and 'Patient Total Owing >90 Days' and dividing by Total AR.
- Collections this month - The percentage funds collected this month by the practice are shown in this KPI. Below the percentage the outstanding funds to be collected is shown as 'Over production'. If collections are greater than production, that amount will be shown. A well established target for collections is 98% or better.
- Report To Run: Period Summary. Filter the date range for Current Month.
- How to Compare Numbers: The percentage is found by taking the Production number on the Period Summary and Dividing the Collection number on the Period Summary. The Dollar amount is found by taking the Production number on the Period Summary minus the Collection number on the Period Summary.
- New patients this month - This KPI shows number of new patients to the practice this month compared to last month.
- Report To Run: New Patient Report. This report will need to be filtered by First Appointment Date NOT PROFILE CREATED DATE. Filter for first appointment date.
- How to Compare Numbers:Run once filtered for First Appointment Date with dynamic date set to 'Last Month' to get a number of patients. Run the report again for the First Appointment Date with dynamic date set to 'This Month'. This is the number displayed on the KPI. Divide the number of patients this month by the number of patients last month to get the % change.
- Production this month - Total production value for the practice this month so far is shown in this KPI compared to last month.Use this Production this month to compare where the practice stands compared to the month before.
- Report To Run: Period Summary or Production Summary. Use the date range filter using this month to get the production number for this month and then filter by last month to get the production number for last month.
- How to Compare: Production Number this month is the number displayed. To get the percent, take this months production number and divide by previous months production number to get the % of change to get calculation for this month. Subtract the number calculated by 1 to get the comparison to previous month.
- Recare retention rate this month - This KPI shows ratio between the number of scheduled Recare appointments this month so far and total number of Recare appointments due this month. This value can help establish if Recare is being scheduled appropriately. A suitable target is 88%.
- Report To Run: Recare Due Date report. Filter by due date using dynamic date option with this month selected. The report should include recare status as a column. The report should then be grouped by Recare Status.
- How to Compare: When grouped by recare status, you will get the option showing schedueled and due recare. Divide the scheduled recare patients into the total number of patients to get the % for retention values.
Unscheduled treatment plans value - Each active patient may have more than one treatment plan in their file. These may be created as options for treatment, or as separate treatment plans.
Until a specific treatment plan has been selected, estimating the value of these possibly used unscheduled treatment plans can be difficult. They exist in multiple possible forms, but it is unknown which form will be selected.
- This is why we provide a minimum total value and a maximum total value for unscheduled treatment plans.
- The maximum value will represent the total of the highest valued single treatment plan on each active patient, while the minimum value will represent the total of the lowest valued single treatment plan on each patient. So, of course, if a patient only has one unscheduled treatment plan available, this one value would contribute to both totals. If your practice tends to present many treatment plan options to patients, it is likely that the maximum value will be much higher than the minimum value in this view. The closer these two values are, the fewer treatment plan possibilities that are being considered.
