With the current health care industry focus on home- and community-based services, we are entering a time of tremendous opportunity for home health, hospice, and palliative care agencies that are well managed, able to contain costs, and able to strategically align with other health care providers.
In spite of the opportunities ahead, many agencies are currently struggling due to poor reimbursement, complex regulatory requirements, and poor internal systems unable to provide critical information to manage the business. In truth, the ever-evolving health care environment is filled with uncertainties.
To be successful, your organization must:
- Balance a census of Medicare and non-Medicare clients to maintain profitability.
- Understand key indicators of staffing efficiency to maintain appropriate cost structure.
- Develop a compensation and benefit structure to recruit and retain a qualified workforce.
- Establish financial reporting tools to pinpoint areas of profitability versus loss.
- Understand and comply with face-to-face encounter and other clinical requirements.
- Meet stringent requirements for appropriate documentation.
- Build relationships with other types of providers including hospitals, skilled nursing facilities, and assisted living facilities.
