Home Health Manuals: Purchase One Or Do It Yourself? Which One Makes Sense In The Big Scheme Of Things?

policy and procedure manualYou have so many things to deal with running a home care business. Regulations change and so do policies and procedure accordingly. Keeping home care manuals up-to-date and useful can be tough sometimes. Here, we look at several reasons why purchasing one is your best bet. 

5 Reasons Purchasing Home Care Manuals Is A Great Option: 

If you aren’t sure, think through these 5 reasons and decide if buying a manual is your answer to policy and procedure: 

  • Time: First and foremost, it takes time to develop a manual. It takes a lot of time. From regulations to personnel, a well-written policy manual is no small task. 
  • Cost: It may seem like a lot of money to purchase a home care manual, but not when you consider the time element to start one from scratch.  In addition, updating an outdated one may even be more cumbersome. 
  • Electronic/Accessibility: If you purchase manuals today, electronic formats allow easy access for employees in the field or in the office. 
  • Convenience/Accreditation: Purchased manuals allow agencies to easily edit anything specific to your agency or state. This way, there is always up-to-date info in your manual without starting over every time.  Accreditation manuals are available to account for any additional standards with ACHC or CHAP. 
  • Customization/Compliance: There are so many different types of agencies. Whether you are a private duty home care, skilled home health, or hospice, manuals are ready dependent upon your line of business.  Senior level experts have been working on manuals for years, so you don’t have to worry if information is up-to-date.
