Strategies to keep your schedule full

1. Make sure all patients have an appointment when leaving, except those on your "no fly" list. 

2. Keep short/ASAP/Will-Call lists.

3. Offer targeted discounts to schedule hard-to-fill time slots, such as in a pedo practice. 

4. All NPs should be scheduled within a week, two weeks max.

5. Only allow well-trained employee(s) to schedule patients, especially NPs. 

6. Keep a well organized morning huddle. 

7. Have phone answered within three rings during business hours.
