Reducing Patient No-Shows, Saving Revenue Streams and Improving Efficiencies
A busy surgeon's clinic manages back-to-back appointments all day, along with a surgical schedule for the doctor and a wait list of patients hoping to see the surgeon earlier than scheduled. Each day, at least 1-2 patients fail to show up for either an appointment or even worse, surgery. This results in a significant loss in revenue for the clinic. Sure, they appointment can be rescheduled, but that particular missed timeslot – and the associated revenue – can never be realized. Additionally, patient no-shows negatively impact productivity with office attempts to locate and reschedule the missing patient.
Patient No-Show is a key “Never Event” for hospitals, clinics and other healthcare organizations.
