Utilizing Interim Management: Why This Can Put Your Agency Back On The Map Instead Of Struggling To Survive!

Interim Management HelpingInterim Management isn’t always something most agencies consider. However, maybe it is time to look a little closer at what an interim can do for your agency. You work every day trying to put together the pieces of the homecare puzzle between financial, clinical, and organizational. If you need to refocus efforts and streamline processes, now us the time.  

Changes With Home Health: 

Ok, so we had new COP’s. We have a new payment system rolling into next year. You may need a new administrator. Maybe, you just took over a home health or hospice agency. There are so many moving pieces that anyone can get stuck. On top of everything, you may see that efforts to comply with new regulations have meant outcome management doesn’t look the way it should. Maybe, compliance with regs has meant you can’t be as focused on marketing efforts and have lost market share. Many admins with nursing backgrounds still see patients on a routine basis. You must remember that no one can fill all these roles and expect to thrive even if it is a small agency. Admins working 20-hour days aren’t doing themselves any favors.  

If you are one of those people, then it is time to talk to employees. Are you available to “run” the agency? Is the impression that you are completely exhausted and really not available when they need you. Maybe you have historically been too available, and it keeps you from moving forward in a meaningful way. Administrators are often so concerned with employee burnout that they forget to check themselves. The way to do that is interim management. 

How Can Interim Management Help Me? 

Consider all the items we spoke of in the last section. If you begin to run off the rails, then it is so hard to get back on track. You may need someone to help with other parts of operation while you dig into something and give it your full effort. Also, you may need someone to completely fill a spot in your agency while you look to hire someone new. If an admin has resigned or will be gone for an extended period, you can’t afford to let pieces fall. We live in a world audits. If you don’t have all the pieces in place, something will give and normally that means someone isn’t monitoring compliance with regulation. This sets you up for more auditing. Interim Management can jump into whatever administrative function is necessary to keep the ship running smoothly.
