How long has it been since you really saw your practice data?
Would it help to visualize your medical practice data geographically?
Today’s BIG Ideas podcast describes how a practice used Excel’s 3D Maps feature to see the growth in patients at a new location. Microsoft has not done much with 3D Maps since it was introduced years ago, but 3D Maps can be very helpful in seeing where your patients are coming from, where your referring physicians practice, or how your marketing efforts are progressing. The maps are not super fancy graphic design masterpieces, but they are in Excel, making it easy to write formulas to analyze your data before mapping. Listen for ideas on how you might get started using maps with your data. Using 3D Maps is a very helpful way to see your practice in a new light.
