I set up a report, for each hygienist and we have 2, that will give me their production for that week. It is set up through Reports....Accounting.....Registers.....Period. I set it up and added it to the report manager so I don't have to set the parameters each time. I run it weekly, but you can set up your time frame biweekly if that's how you do payroll AND you can set your days. Our payroll goes from Wed through Tuesday, biweekly. From there I can calculate 33% of their production. I am wondering why they get credit for an exam, which is a doctor fee? Our hygienists get credit for all their cleanings and xrays, including if they have helped the doctor take them, and whitening trays if they make them. If they sold a Sonicare, they got credit for that but we are moving away from selling Sonicares in the office.
Just now able to respond back to you.....
The report generates the production for that hygienist for the time period I select (Wednesday through the following Tuesday) and is based on the fees we have set for the codes they are allowed credit. It is irrelevant if it's insurance related or written off (we are not contracted) or if it is an employee who gets their dental care at no charge to them. I do our payroll on Quickbooks and it will calculate the 33% based on the number I put in for them.
I feel our hygienists also do a thorough job too of helping with examining the patient prior to the doctor coming in but our understanding is 120 is a doctor code, so we don't give them any credit for that. Since we also track doctor production, all exam code fess go to the doctor production.
BTW. we are on Softdent 16.2.8 and I use the Report Manager to have this report. Since I set the parameters, all I have to do is run it on Tuesday once they are done for the day and it will give me the production numbers without setting it up each time. I have 2 reports set up, one for each hygienist. Easier that way.
I just saw this on Practice Booster -
And we are in Florida. FYI.......
Ladies, I am sorry that I have been MIA as of lately.
