What is Mean to Know The Patient Life Time Of Your Dental Patients?

How to Measure Patient Lifetime Value

The Patient Lifetime Value is the key success factor in operating any dental practice and it shows the ability to retain patients once they come in the door. By focusing on this long-term value, the dental practice can enjoy higher returns from his existing client base.

What Is Dental Patient Life Time Value?

PLT value is a prediction of the total worth of a dental patient to dentistry over the entirety of their relationship.

Most often, a dentist starts looking for advertising when he or she notices an acute need for patients, hoping for a short-term influx of new work. If the advertising is successful in bringing in patients, it is often terminated – at least until the next time the practice is not attracting enough new patients. Similarly, new patients are deemed monetarily unrewarding if their service includes only standard cleaning and examination procedures. This lack of long-term focus is perpetuated by the absence of any meaningful material in the industry on the value of a dental patient. 

There are several key benefits to the development and retention of a long-term patient relationship including reduced acquisition costs, referral opportunity, and recurring revenue.

Analyzing Net Promoter Score using Machine Learning

Overview This article presents a reference implementation of a Net Promoter score analysis project that is built by using Machine Learning. In this article, we will discuss associated generic models for holistically solving the problem of industrial Net Promoter score. We also measure the accuracy of models that are built by using Machine Learning and assess directions for further development. Net Promoter Score The Net Promoter Score is an index ranging from 0 to 10 that measures the customer’s loyalty to the brand. Calculation Customers are surveyed on one single question.  “On a scale of 0 to 10, how likely are you to recommend this company’s product or service to a friend or a colleague?” Based on their rating, customers are then classified into 3 categories: detractors, passives, and promoters. continue.......

SQL Table-Valued Function to Find the Best Trend Line Using Linear Regression

Linear regression is probably one of the first regression techniques we run across. It is useful for explaining (and perhaps forecasting) data that has a linear nature, but where the underlying process is unknown.  Linear regression line between New Patient Data and  Marketing Expenses   This solution focuses on the practical aspects of finding the best trend line for a financial time series using SQL function. If you have a large dataset with multiple sets of x and y data points associated with some attribute, you can do a linear regression on each set with one query using GroupID. The great strength of the linear regression line is that it can clarify sometimes ambiguous line charts and quantify the results via the slope of the line.

Building a ML classifier on dentistry payment plans data using C#

I prefer the Naive Bayes approach, because while having small set of data, it seems to make better decisions than I did in many cases. Also, the other type of classifier seems to do better on clear-cut cases, but doesn't seem to handle uncertainty so well. In addition,   the naive Bayes classifier corresponds to a linear classifier in a particular feature space.                                                   Main Program Text Pre-processing Class   Naive Bayes Class
