Are you continually working towards clinical and financial goals and not getting there? It is a story heard so often in our industry. Whether you are in homecare, home health, or hospice, evolving with the industry feels like a constant. Being an efficient and successful change agent within your organization is key to remaining fiscally sound in our world of ever shrinking reimbursement. If you are making changes and see staff consistently leave as changes occur, then looking outside your organization may give you exactly what you need.
What Can Someone On The Outside Do?
Well, that’s a big question with multiple different answers. Using a home care consultant to help you make meaningful change can happen in many forms. Let’s look at the ways:
- Organizational Assessments: These assessments provide an objective and holistic view of your agency and can be for clinical, operational, and/or financially focused. A home care consultant can analyze every department and include items such as marketing plans and goals. They can also help with recruitment and retention strategies. It may be analyzing staffing ratio within departments to help you make changes in job roles and numbers of employees.
- Education: Many agencies have a non-clinical administrator. Therefore, communicating clinical change to an organization is a challenge. Clinical consultants can help with educating staff as to regulatory change and exactly what has to occur. The home care consultant has run agencies and knows how to effectively educate staff.
- Operations: To piggyback on the previous function, the clinical consultant can also then help translate the actual changes into operations and work with staff to do it successfully. If finance is your issue, the financial consultant can analyze current processes and help you to understand and develop the changes to help your agency function efficiently. The organizational planning of change is just as important as the change itself. So regardless of the origin of your problem, the consulting agency helps you work step-by-step through it.
