Interim Home Health Management Fast Tracks Your Agency’s Success

interim home health management

The competition for home health care companies is growing, especially as more and more Baby Boomers reach retirement age. With more agencies entering the industry every day, you need to be on top of your game if you expect to compete. But that can be difficult when you don’t have a solid management team to chart the way forward.

If a key member of your team suddenly leaves or your agency experiences any other disruption, you have to be able to move very quickly. When that happens, interim home health management can be the temporary solution you need to get back on track. An experienced home care consultant can step in to fill the void, assess the situation, and provide guidance when you need it most.

Organizational Assessments

Performing an organizational assessment is the first step in any interim management plan. The assessment takes an in-depth look at your operations, procedures, systems, and staff to identify problem areas. Once these are uncovered, you’ll be able to see exactly where you are and what steps need to be taken to improve your home health agency. Then a strategy can be developed to tackle each issue head-on and begin to make the necessary changes.

An interim home health manager’s organizational assessment will include:

  • Identifying problem areas and staff that are not contributing to a positive and healthy organization
  • Identifying challenges with recruiting and retention
  • Discovering compliance issues that may be putting your agency at risk
  • Finding billing and payroll issues that are impacting your cash flow and bottom line
  • Understanding staff performance issues and training needs
  • Identifying hidden issues that are putting your business in its financial position

Expert Access

Interim home health management comes with direct access to a senior-level manager. This is the professional who conducts your assessment, interviews management, and helps create a plan of correction. Whether you want a financial advisor or someone to run your operations, a senior-level manager will draw on years of experience to find whatever’s preventing your agency from achieving success. She can also provide needed resources and access to networks, which may include everything from essential training to better human resources tools.

Tracking

It’s important to track the overall success of your correctional plan. An interim home health manager can develop dashboard metrics to allow for accurate tracking of key elements of your agency’s success or failure. Keeping a close eye on progress also allows you to implement new strategies to help correct areas that need improvement.

Locating a Replacement

In addition to putting your agency on a path to growth, one of the main goals of interim management is finding the ideal permanent hire. An interim manager can help create a detailed position profile and assist with the recruitment process. This will include understanding the demands of the role and the skills needed to lead your agency. Ultimately, you have to follow a step-by-step plan to ensure your hire the right replacement for your team.
