Perhaps it’s time to think about how to get those patients that may have fallen through the cracks back into your office.
Primary care practices, as example, may want to consider running a list of patients, who will become Medicare eligible within the next year, remind them to enroll, and then offer them the New annual wellness visit. Tell them this visit is without co-insurance cost, so no out of pocket for them, and it may get the patient on a regular routine follow up in your office.
Gastroenterologists may want to run a list of patients who are turning 50 this year. Contact them and schedule their first screening colonoscopy.
GYN practices should run that list of annual checkups, who didn’t show last year? Call and make that appointment.
Think about your specific practice, what type of patients do you see annually? At what age do you start seeing them on a routine basis? This may be a way to increase volume and the bottom line. If you need patient listing by age or by a specific diagnosis, give us a call. We are more than happy to help.
