Data Errors Can Cost Your Practice

So, here’s something you probably don’t think much about.

Make sure you double-check your spelling when you record an insurance payer in your PMS.

Seriously. All too often, practices make small errors when inputting data into their systems.

Your PMS may think you’re working with 10 different insurance providers, when really, you (or your team) have just found 10 creative ways to spell Delta Dental.

This may not seem like a big deal. But it gets in the way of properly measuring your KPIs — which will make it harder for you to understand where your practice stands and make clear decisions when planning for future growth.

For want of a nail, right?
