The On-Site Consulting approach is critical when Monitoring your systems. Being on-site allows us to go directly to the source of the information we need in the evaluation of your practice. Extracting and analyzing data from your practice management system is the only way to truly critique the efficiency or inefficiency of your staff and office procedures. By extracting data ourselves, we are able to avoid possible manipulation or inflation of this data by staff members. This On-Site Consulting approach involves and requires the participation of the business owner(s), as well as the cooperation of staff members. Below we explain each of the 5.
