Production Totals

To the right of the appointment schedule there is a field for Daily Prod. This field gives you a general idea of the day's production.

Note: To view actual production numbers, see Production and Income Reports.

By default, the value reflects the daily production sum for all procedures attached to appointments for providers whose bars show in the appointment view. To instead calculate the value based on the sum for all procedures scheduled in operatories that show in the appointment view, check Appointment module production use operatories in Appointments Module Preferences.

If Add daily adjustments to net production is checked, adjustments are included in the net production total. The net production on appointments may not equal net production total if adjustments are not attached to procedures.

To show a value in this field:

  • 'Production' must be added to the selected Appointment View.
  • Providers must be associated to the Appointment View. 

Only one amount shows when gross and net amounts are the same. 

If two amounts show, gross and net amounts are different. 

  • The first number is the gross (sum) of the procedure fees.
  • The second number is the net after subtracting all writeoffs and writeoff estimates. Writeoffs will be used when viewing dates in the past; estimates will be used when viewing current or future dates. 

Note: Net production can be greater than gross production if a patient in the appointment view has received a refund.
