Managing an independent medical practice, medical center or hospital-based physician group can be a challenging task. It requires attention to a number of variables including patient care, facilities management, physician recruiting and management, not to mention the bevy of regulations and compliance matters requiring attention. This may leave little time for financial planning and reporting activities essential to the financial vitality of the practice. That’s why the implementation of key performance indicators and industry benchmarking are essential to measure against on an ongoing basis. The insights gained from this valuable exercise provides key information that can be used across the organization.

KPI Dashboard Services

Monthly Financial Dashboards

A practice’s financial statements are the starting point for any financial KPI dashboard. Your revenue, operating expenses, and profit or loss should be compared to prior periods and your budget to help judge the viability of the organization or a specific goal. How do your numbers compare to industry benchmarks, averages or top performers?

Monthly Clinical Dashboards

Evaluating physician productivity is a fundamental indicator that should be reviewed monthly. Comparing practice and individual work relative value units by month can help you understand fluctuations in cash receipts. Using national benchmarks for comparison will help identify potential capacity issues. Many physician compensation programs are based on productivity, so measuring monthly and providing the data to the physicians eliminates much of the surprise that may come after the compensation is calculated.
