HOME HEALTH CARE MANAGEMENT
As the demands placed upon home health care management have increased in the form of payment adjustments, regulatory changes and the care needs of looming baby boomer population, people in leadership positions at all levels have faced increased challenges. With a clinical staff that is more mobile and geographically spread out, getting and keeping people on the same page is no easy task.
Specific to therapy home health care management, there is wide variation between agencies with respect to the model being used – contracted staff, salaried / hourly staff, PRN / casual positions or any combination. With the degree of external scrutiny in place regarding therapy utilization and documentation carries a large amount of risk if not understood and monitored. Many leaders are not therapists themselves and can feel at a disadvantage when trying to manage both clinical and operational issues that relate to therapy practice in home care.
Kornetti & Krafft Health Care Solutions offers a variety of options for improving leadership skills overall with specific products and services targeted at the home health care management issues. Here are a few of the areas we can address:
- Management of an Interdisciplinary Team
- Developing Accountability in Care Delivery
- Leading a Therapy Team as a non-Therapist
- Mentoring for Therapists in a Leadership Role
With the ever shrinking revenue picture for home care, it may not be cost effective to have a therapist on staff in a leadership role. Kornetti & Krafft Health Care Solutions is able to partner with agencies to manage their therapy teams for them. We provide data analysis, documentation reviews, clinical development and both onsite and remote support based on the needs and goals of the agency. We can be the liaison between a home health care management agency and the contract therapy company to ensure expectations are met and that the highest quality is achieved.
