Could your practice use an air traffic controller? — Floor controller/managers can maximize exam room profitability
Abstract: An empty exam room with a physician ready to see a patient can cost a practice between $45 and $125 a day in lost revenue. And that’s revenue that the practice may never recoup. This article discusses reasons to consider hiring a floor controller/manager, an employee who acts as sort of an “air traffic controller” to ensure exam rooms are cleaned and turned over in a timely manner.
