You CAN Put a Stop to These New Patient Problems
Do new patients arrive late for their evaluation?
Without completing their paperwork? Or do they forget important documents, like insurance auths or their ID?
Do your patients get lost on the way to their evaluation...which makes them late getting started?
Or maybe you’re dealing with new patients who no-show or cancel the day of their appointment...that’s the WORST one of all in my opinion.
Each of these IS a problem because it makes your front desk less efficient, and it carries over into patient care.
But there IS a solution. With the right scripting, and the right training, your new patients will follow through with your expectations.
And when they don’t? You simply work with your front desk to make sure the systems are back in place to ensure they do.
All front desk training should focus on and apply to the 5 main stats at the front desk:
Teach them HOW to build a relationship on the initial call --> MORE leads converted to scheduled evaluations on that 1st phone call
Teach them HOW to confirm the day before --> New Patients will arrive for their evaluations and be ready to start right ON TIME
Give them the right scripts for scheduling out a plan of care and how to reschedule appointments --> Patients are meeting their weekly plan of care and less drop offs
Help them to understand WHY money is a button and how to explain the cost of care --> They’ll collect MORE at the time of service and have less to bill later on
Give them an EXACT process for cancellation PREVENTION --> You’ll have happier, more compliant patients who arrive for care or give the notice you need to help someone else; and you won’t have to threaten fees to do it
When your team is trained well, they’ll understand the importance of schedule control and their role in helping patients. And they’ll be able to fill the schedule with patients who wil larrive.
And when you have consistent training you can go back to over and over again, you will have more certainty and can focus on building a thriving practice.
