As more and more home health agencies shift to outsourcing their therapy services, it is important to understand the qualities that a great therapy partner should have. Certainly, therapy is an integral component of delivering quality care in the home and it’s critical to chose the right partner that can provide therapy expertise along with resources for success.
For many home health agencies, outsourcing therapy to an expert has brought the relief and expertise needed, due to the pressures of the COVID-19 pandemic and the implementation of PDGM, including PPE requirements and sourcing concerns, increased costs, staffing and productivity challenges, increased clinical complexity, and revenue cycle challenges.
Home health agencies should ensure that their therapy partner has these 5 essential resources:
- Clinical and Utilization Pathways
- Marketing and Growth Strategies
- OASIS Coding and Accuracy Expertise
- Competitive Marketing Analytics
- QAPI Review and Support
