What is a Revenue Dashboard?
Revenue Dashboards for healthcare providers are considered performance analysis tools and are used by Executives and CFOs to monitor revenues metrics. Some of the main functionality in this type of dashboard is that it gives users a very easy and clean interface to review: 1) Revenue by patient type, 2) Revenue by facility, and 3) Monthly revenue trend with actual and budget comparison. The filters enable users to slice the visuals into more granular data. You find an example of this type of dashboard below.
Purpose of Revenue Dashboards for Healthcare Providers
Healthcare organizations use Revenue Dashboards to analyze trends and comparisons of income by patient type and from different facilities. When used as part of good business practices in a Financial Planning & Analysis (FP&A) department, an organization can improve its revenue generating strategies, and it can reduce the chances that important trends are missed with resulting impact on margins and surplus/deficit.
