There are three reasons why chairtime utilisation is not always 100%: FTAs, short notice cancellations and un-booked time.
Are you treating every minute of your day in practice as a revenue opportunity?
If you’re wondering how you can increase your revenue without increasing opening hours or adding another chair, then the answer will lie in your chair-time utilisation. Reducing white space in the diary and increasing the number of high value treatments delivered will help push up daily revenues and average hourly earnings in any practice. To do this, you need to be implementing an effective recall system as well as managing your short notice cancellations and failure to attend rates.
We all lead busy lives and are bound to forget things time to time, which is why it comes as no surprise that every so often patients fail to turn up or cancel their dental appointment last minute; but by automating your recalls and short notice lists, you can help minimise the negative impact on your business without relying on human resource. The ability to automate using EXACT dental software gives you complete control over the process and confidence that these important tasks are being undertaken in a timely and efficient manner, and can help boost chair-time utilisation from the average 72% up to 95%.
