Production Analysis Report - Production by Day

The Production by Day report shows information for charges posted during the selected time period, broken down by month, as well as the transactions (such as payments or adjustments) associated with those procedures.

Because of this, the payment information on this report will not match your other reports in MacPractice.

Example: A patient comes in for an exam in March. The exam is posted as a charge to the ledger. Insurance pays on the exam, but the payment is not received or posted until April. If you run the Production by Month report for March, the insurance payment for the exam will be counted in the Insurance Payment column, since it was applied to a procedure performed in March. However on the Gross Receipts report, the insurance payment would show under April's receipts, as that is when it was entered in the database.

This documentation contains the following sections:

As with many other reports, this report can be run with a variety of filters. For this report, all filters are based on the information listed in the charge window.
