Running a healthcare practice requires much more than just managing Doctors and Nurses. One relatively new role that is creating a lot of excitement in healthcare is the Data Analyst.

The Data Analyst is not only someone who captures key patient flow data, but someone who will put that data to work for your practice.

Keeping a constant eye on the Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) of patient flow allows you to produce a more efficient and harmonious work environment. By capturing how long a patient waits in the reception area, how long they wait before seeing a Doctor, and determining where patient flow bottlenecks occur, the Data Analyst is able to recommend adjustments to improve their bottom line.
