The individuals that are running a Home Health Agency feel like one-armed wallpaper hangers these days. Home Health Directors are faced with many challenges during the workday from clinical issues to reading financials to finding and retaining good clinicians. In this webinar we will review key items that every Clinical Director or Director of Nursing needs to know to perform their job. Included will be how to use data to drive results, key performance indicators, scorecards and dashboards and what to do with those finance reports.
This webinar is part of the Clinical Defensible Documentation Series, where we are highlighting how each discipline can improve their documentation skills, maintain compliance, and provide better patient care. This session will educate your Social Workers on how to perform quality assessments and document them correctly.
Home care agencies have become vital in ensuring that individuals can remain home safely and independently. Social workers have consistently been the frontline workers in times of crisis and have always provided a social safety net to ensure that everyone, particularly the vulnerable in our society, has access to needed services and resources.

Homecare is the only segment of the Healthcare continuum which isolates its nurses to assess and chart, do complete care planning, and manage a patient’s outcomes. This has created long gaps between OASIS assessment completion and being able to care for the patient. Good outcomes are difficult to attain because of this in many cases.
With margins shrinking and competition growing, it’s critical to utilize industry-wide and agency specific data, not generalized assumptions to identify agency strengths & weaknesses as well as areas for growth & improvement in both sales activity and financial outcomes. Using current and historical trended data agencies can develop a plan to decrease operating costs, identify key areas of margin improvement and focus on specific tasks to impact change.
