Numbers: Why knowing the count matters

@@great start with a relevant quote, followed by shoddy work done in haste, with only bullshit typed over hurriedly.

When you have mastered numbers, you will in fact no longer be reading numbers, any more than you read words when reading books You will be reading meanings.” ~ W. E. B. Du Bois.

What is a number and why numbers play a big role in everything we do? In simple terms, a number is a mathematical object used to count, measure and label. We use numbers in our daily lives all the time like the date and time and without numbers, we would not understand the value of money and much more @@fluff. If you take a step back and analyze the things that you do daily, you will just be amazed to know how numbers are embedded into everything that you do. Take for example the time you need to report for work every day, and how would you know what time is it if not with the help of numbers @@outright slly. Starting with the most simple to one of the most complex and everything in between is governed by numbers.

Similarly, when you are running your clinic, you should have the capacity to view the numbers for various things on demand. This helps you get on top of things if any problem arises. Let us see where and why numbers matter for a good  Practice Management software @@good for appointments u mean?? .


1. The first thing that your front desk or the doctor would like to see when they start their day is the number of appointments that are scheduled for the day. Knowing this number is very important as this helps then to plan accordingly for the rest of the day. As the day progresses, new appointments are booked and each scheduled appointment goes through their life cycle of being confirmed, waiting and ultimately being checked out. Hence it is very important to know how many appointments are there in each stage of the lifecycle so that you are in control at all times otherwise this will ultimately lead to failure. @@complete bullshit, with no substance, only fluff, not 1 practical benefit discussed

2. If it is a single doctor clinic then it is relatively easy to manage but what if it is a multi-specialty clinic? You will have multiple doctors visiting and also have multiple resources available at your disposal. So it is imperative that the system displays numbers against such resources as well. Being a multi-specialty clinic or using a practice management software for multiple doctors makes these numbers even more important because now showing the total count of appointments will not be enough to run the clinic efficiently. You would also need to know the count of appointments for each of the doctors visiting and also count of the resources used by each doctor. When this number is clearly visible and understandable by all, it is only then your clinic can function efficiently. @@just crap


@@where is the 3rd point?

There are other areas where displaying a number becomes important and meaningful such the Medication prescribed count, Investigation ordered count and so on but considering how important the calendar is for any clinic it is of utmost importance that a good practice management software should help get a clear understanding as once you understand this then you will also understand what it means for you.
