My presentations at national and regional meetings in recent years have focused often on financial analysis, benchmarking and measuring performance. Id like to share with you my proven methodology and steps for completing your own analysis-in just minutes-which will provide a general sense of how your medical billing performance measures up. The specific steps include: Pull data from financial reports Input data into "dashboard" tool (spreadsheet) Compare your results to industry benchmarks ("healthy" ranges) Identify practice trends and areas of opportunity Below I will outline the first two steps; tomorrow Ill walk you through the analysis process, and discuss the key data you should be looking at.

The good news is that there are many software tools specifically designed to help you manage your finances better. Some tools are more complex than others. If you have never used a budgeting software before, pick out one with a platform that you can understand. You shouldnt have to be very techie to be able to use the tool. A good software intuits the needs of its users, and helps them along by simplifying the process as much as possible. Evaluate, Update At the end of a certain period, assess how helpful your spreadsheet is to you. Were you able to see how youve been spending your money? Have you finally figured out which areas of your spending to cut back on? Can you now estimate how much you can reasonably set aside as savings every month? Keep your budget spreadsheet up to date so you can use it to make an informed decision about your finances anytime, all the time.

Range Names group like cells together by some logic you decide. So rather than adding together the monthly sales in cells M5-M100, you can instead identify those cells by a name (say, MONTHSALES). Any data inserted between the first and last rows will be counted, your formulas will be easier to understand without all of those alphanumeric characters, and any errors will be much more obvious. Finally, use the "Trace Precedents" and "Show Dependents" functions in the Formulas tab for a visual representation of the values used to populate a sum, average, or other formula. This wont help you is the values themselves are bad, but itll help you visualize the flow of data into a destination cell and make any extraneous data obvious.

It seems unlikely that Excel spreadsheets will disappear from the finance department completely; admittedly, they are still a really useful tool for auditing, even for very large businesses (of 1,000+ headcounts) and they will probably remain the go-to program of choice for creating graphs and charts. However, businesses that are managing to grow and are serious about both productivity and regulatory compliance will likely move their reconciliation and monthly close process to specialist programs, as opposed to makeshift spreadsheets. Especially as the need for advanced reporting and intuitive financial analysis expands beyond the capabilities of Excel.

After you have spent some time collecting figures and transforming them into a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet you may need to present your workbook to clients and colleagues. Thanks to the huge array of features offered by the programme, you can design your workbooks in many different forms. Some entrepreneurs prefer information to be presented in straightforward tables, while others benefit from the varied functions of the software and they create coloured pie charts to reflect the data. Whichever way you choose to present information, you are likely to find that MS Excel is the backbone of many workplace documents that require analysis and presentation of data. A great feature of the product is that is has been designed to help you produce workbooks that can be easily moved to other applications. For instance, if you have recently put-together a spreadsheet that shows which departments are underperforming, you may wish to transfer information to other MS products.

If its used to anywhere near its full potential it can allow you to amaze your friends and colleagues and more importantly allow you to save time and work smarter and faster. Many people spend a long time building spreadsheets with little forward thinking and therefore making it difficult to re-use a spreadsheet or work book or really difficult to even just update the same sheets without having to repeat a lot of the work already put into it. The first important rule that I always follow when creating a spreadsheet is to have the long term vision in mind. I do not mind investing time and energy into something I do once that can be reused over and over again.

Another useful function is that you can add hyperlinks to your PowerPoint slides that lead to your MS Excel documents. This can prove useful should you want to have spreadsheets available to add extra information, if it is required during your presentation. Once you have created charts in MS Excel you may like any changes to them to be linked to PowerPoint slides. This is possible using the Microsoft Office Excel Chart Object, which allows you to create links to diagrams that have been updated, ensuring your presentation contains the most recent adaptations to spreadsheet data. Another application that you can paste your MS Excel data into is MS Word. This can be beneficial to those who need to create informative documents that feature spreadsheets.

Then youve come to the right place. The LEFT or RIGHT function returns the leftmost or rightmost characters from a text value. Example: =LEFT(A2,3) If value in cell A2 were 184770 the formula would display the number 4. =Right(B3,2) If value in cell B3 were 16579 the formula would display the number 7. LEN (length) returns the number of characters in a text string. Example: =LEN(A2) If the value in cell A2 is 16498 then the formula will display 5. Combine the two in a single formula example. Say you have a single digit which indicates length in.125 increments. Double digits indicates length in whole inches AND.125 increments. =IF(LEN(D2)=2,LEFT(D2,1)+(RIGHT(D2,1)*0.125),RIGHT(D2,1)*0.125) If the length of the value of cell D2 (the length number) equals 2 (which means it is double digit), then add the left digit plus the right digit multiplied by 0.125, otherwise take the single digit and multiply by 0.125.

After measuring and counting I take my numbers and go to my office and prepare my estimate. If you do a search in Ezines, you will find other articles by me describing how I use the Excel Spread Sheet to total up and multiply high time factors to those elements of the job that are over eight foot high. Why? It takes you a lot more time to paint a window at twenty feet that it does at eight feet of height. After I total everything using the formulas built into the spreadsheet, I go to my estimating software and prepare the estimate. I itemize everything, I never do an estimate that says $2000 (or whatever amount it is), for painting the interior. I itemize everything, and its easier because that is how I count things. Also, because if I count 16 shutters and when I am painting them I count 20, I tell the customer that I only charged for 16, and they can see it in black and white, so they have to pay extra for the extra shutters, this way I dont get cheated. Anyway the subject of itemizing your estimate is a whole new article.
