UNDERSTANDING DASHBOARD

Dashboard is a management tool that provides a graphical picture of several facets of your agency operations. It includes data such as financial results, payer information, and patient and associate statistics.

Dashboard presents current and historical snapshots of business operations that can be used to predict future results based on trends. This is commonly referred to as business intelligence. To that end, the purpose of Dashboard is to provide information to help analyze your agency operations and make better business decisions.

You can access information about your location as well as evaluate performance against budgeted or targeted standards set by your organization.
