Practice Diagnosis displays Vital Statistics for Running and Managing your Practice.
The Practice Diagnosis report is ONLY available to Alignlife Clinics - due to their unique patient status flow.
Here is a quick look at what you will be looking at:
Practice Diagnosis works with other areas of CoAction(Alignlife ONLY) to provide the most accurate and reliable data possible.
Areas of CoAction where data is generated from:
- Assigned Provider- The Provider Assigned in the patients file, Patient info tab. This provider is linked to the patient for financial reporting, regardless of who sees the patient.
- Designated Provider – The provider linked to a Specific Patients’ case, under their case tab. Anything performed, sold and received on this case only is linked to this Provider.
- Treating Provider- The provider that saw the patient during a Patient appointment.
The Admin Section of CoAction:
- Referral Source- This area allows you to create specific reasons why patients would be referred to the clinic. You will also tell the system if the source is an External or Internal Source.
- CPT Groups- CPT Groups are categorized so, the Services Breakdown portion of Practice Diagnosis can produce stats for each category.
- Global Settings- Houses New Patient (Adjustment Codes) and Lead codes (Exam Codes) so, a patient can move from status to status appropriately.
- Case Type- The case type is selected in the Patients file, Case Tab, Case Type Dropdown.
Practice Diagnosis Key:
When you see the * symbol next to any statistic, this means that specific area is a rolling 12-month statistic and is unaffected by the date range entered.
These areas are broken down to Current and Previous.
When you see this ^ symbol next to any statistic, this means it is a Real-Time stat. It is not affected by the date range selected and these stats do not offer a previous statistic.

PATIENT STATUS STATS
Ran by Assigned Provider
This area of Practice Diagnosis is designed to show you where the communication breakdown takes place during a patient’s flow and where efforts should be focused.
In Practice Diagnosis any newly added patient starts off as a Prospect, moves to a Lead and then becomes a New Patient.
- A Prospect- Any newly added person added to CoAction, that has not been in for an Exam.
- A Lead- A Patient that has come into the office for an Exam.
- A New Patient- A patient that has had 2 consecutive appointments where an adjustment code was entered. Classified as a patient that is actively seeking care.
If you have a large Active Prospect Total and very small Lead Total, this means that patients are expressing interest in coming into the office but, not committing to be seen for an Exam.
If you have a Large Lead Total and small New Patient Total, Patients are coming in for their Exam but, not committing to care.
- Total Active Prospects: How many New People have been added to your CoAction software during the date range selected.
- Internal Leads: How many Leads that have an Internal Referral Source selected in their Patient File during the date range selected.
- External Leads: How many Leads that have an External Referral Source selected in their Patient File during the date range selected.
- Total Leads (Conversion %): Internal + External Leads = Total Leads within Date Range selected.
- Conversion percentage: Of the number of Prospects in a 12- month rolling statistic, how many converted to the Lead status.
- Internal % / External %: Break down percentage of Internal vs. External. Internal percentage is displayed on the Left and then External percentage on the Right.
