It is helpful to review a clinic’s client lifetime value (CLV) to see if the practice is optimizing its existing patient care. The calculation requires answers to a few key questions, such as how long patients stay with the practice and the total amount produced per patient. The exercise itself can help you project what adding a patient does to a practice’s bottom line. Each aspect of CLV gives insight into how much each patient moves the financial needle as well as identify missed opportunities in a practice, such as collection efficacy and patient loyalty, and can provide insight to strategic decisions.

Examples of Opportunities:
