No matter what region of the country you live in, chances are your production numbers have been affected by the weather. The question I have been asked by my clients has been the same for the past few weeks, how do I make up my missed production?
We want to take care of our patients. It is not their fault that snow and ice fell and kept them from being seen for their scheduled appointments. Because of these missed appointments, you have the opportunity to get creative with your schedule. I know for some practices it is easier to remain open a few hours later each day for a couple weeks to be able to reschedule those patients. There are others that prefer working a few Fridays to make up the time for their patients. The important thing is to add time to your schedule, so you take care of your patients.
Discuss this with your team and create a plan of action so you are able to meet your goals. Everyone is in this together and should understand that taking care of your patients is the priority of the practice.
