The Balancing Act: Maximizing Quality Care and Profitability in a Rural Therapy Department
August 8, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am MDT
Rehabilitation departments are normally profitable, but with decreasing reimbursements and rising costs, therapy programs need to find ways to be more efficient without sacrificing quality care. This webinar will discuss the key indicators within a rural hospital therapy department and share strategies to help grow rehabilitation programs. Attendees will learn how to develop dashboards that can reduce the stresses of management and set clear goals. Tools will be provided to construct incentive plans based on both quality and volume metrics within the therapy department.
- Examine and track key indicators for rural therapy departments by using a dashboard.
- Explain how to market strategies in the community and to physicians.
- Describe the benefits of outcomes and quality measurement with a third-party administrator.
- Develop engagement initiatives for the entire rehab team.
Physical, occupational and speech therapists, rehabilitation managers and administrators who oversee rehabilitation departments.
