Establishing KPIs for Your HME Business
We all have goals. (How are those New Year’s resolutions coming along, by the way?) And your business is no different. One way to make sure you understand how well your company is achieving its short- and long-term objectives is through Key Performance Indicators, or KPIs. KPIs provide the data you need to evaluate your success against those goals so you can pinpoint areas of strength and weakness.
Yes, developing your company's KPIs can take some careful thought and time, but the benefits are far reaching. Not only do KPIs help you measure and monitor performance, they also identify problems early so you can shift your strategy, if necessary.
