Top 3 Reports You Should Know About

One of the areas of software that is often overlooked is the reports section. Obviously, it is important to have a software program that makes entering data as easy as possible. Just as important is how you can then group, sort and view the data in the reports to keep your finger on the pulse of the practice.
There are over 100 reports in the reports section of our software and more than 150 that are available and just need to be imported from the TotalMD folder. That means there are over 250 reports that are available with the TotalMD software, which can be a little overwhelming. This is why it is often difficult to know which reports are best for you. Although we cannot tell you which reports are best for your specific practice, we want to highlight three of the most popular reports.
Day Sheet by Patient: This report allows you to see every transaction by patient in a date range. At the very end of this report you will get all totals of payments and adjustments, divided by insurance and patients. It also includes an AR total for the date range.
It is also very common for us to add a “date created” range so it can be run by the date something was put into the software and not the date of service. This is especially popular for billing services because they are entering data into the program days after it actually happened.
Deposit Slip: The deposit slip is the easiest way to know how much money was entered into TotalMD in a date range regardless whether it was applied to a charge or not. It will show you each deposit and give you subtotals by type, for example, Insurance Check Payments, Patient Cash, Check and Credit Card payments. This report can even include your bank account number so you can give it to the teller at the bank when you deposit all of your checks.
Flash Report: The flash report gives you a great overview of the practice by day and then it is totaled by month. It can be run by date range and it only shows dates in the date range that have transactions. So if the practice is closed on the weekends, then Saturdays and Sundays won’t show on the report. For each of the days that do show it will give you the number of patient visits for the day as well as the total charges. Then it will show the total of all insurance payments as well as patient payments. Adjustments are also totaled. Each of the column is then totaled by month.
