Today, there are so many things for clinicians, back-office employees, and administration to handle on a daily basis. If you get behind working on something in a department, then you can miss what changes in the process. Homecare education is key so that those involved in all cogs of the wheel understand why the process has to work a certain way. Let’s talk about how a homecare education consultant helps put everything together while making sure those involved understand the puzzle.
Pick The Right Consultant:
Listen, reality is that it doesn’t make sense to hire someone who is entirely clinical if you need assistance with billing or financial issues. Likewise if your issues are financial due to clinical issues such as Oasis, documentation, or coding then you don’t need an accounting consultant. It is important to understand where the initial deficit lies. If you are unsure, you may need to start with an organizational assessment from your consultant. This will give you an in depth look at your clinical and financial operations to determine where to start. Regardless the deficit, education is so key to making successful changes occur within your organization.
What Does Homecare Education Look Like From A Consultant:
Your homecare education from the consultant will be planned based upon what the deficits are. It may mean classroom format with all your clinical staff or a webinar series with your staff and the consultant that moves through clinical and care planning processes. If you are a new agency or adding new service lines, your consultant will go in the field and assist staff with hand-on care or working through the proper Oasis assessment process. Your education may be working with billing staff who have never completed the process and do not understand terminology or the steps from RAP to final billing. Ultimately, home care consulting is a very broad term because there are so many facets to the work in home care. Pick a consultant or consulting firm that can work directly with your educational needs.
