One of the areas of software often overlooked involves 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.

It also totals adjustments. Each column then totals by month.
