In this era of reimbursement not keeping pace with overhead and healthcare reform an unknown, it is more important than ever to assess the use of the doctorsâ€™ and mid-level providersâ€™ time in your practice. There could be a very large untapped revenue source in the misallocated time of these providers that could help your practice increase patient volume and therefore practice revenue. Accessing this untapped revenue source may require additional resources in space and staff. To determine the level of untapped revenue and the investment that will be required to access that revenue, an objective assessment of your current practice flow is required.
