As a result of the shift in patient financial accountability, more patients are failing to show for appointments today than ever before.  With every appointment no-show, you bear all of the overhead cost - and the revenue lost can never be recovered.

You’ll walk away from this webinar with an action plan to reduce missed appointments – and improve your bottom line.
