Operational efficiency across all service lines is a goal that every hospital strives for, whether large, small, urban or rural. As an allied health profession with its own unique regulations and best practices, physical therapy is one area that can require specialized attention.
In a health care field where providers seem to be tasked with doing more with less each year, using the physical therapy resources you have as efficiently as possible is absolutely critical. Delivering high-quality physical therapy on a cost-effective basis can mean a number of benefits, including a better patient experience, increased revenue, reduced overhead and less costly readmissions.
An increasingly common solution that many hospitals are turning to is contract therapy services provided by a dedicated organization. Contract therapy can help you optimize your physical therapy resources so you can help your patients regain their functionality and the quality of life they deserve.
Streamline your physical therapy resources in the following ways
At a time when hospitals are required to run at peak efficiency in order to succeed, contract physical therapy can help hospital administrators in the following ways:
- Regulatory compliance ” Contract services providers can leverage industry-specific knowledge and resources to help you stay ahead of a constantly shifting regulatory environment.
- Recruiting and hiring ” A dedicated organization has access to top talent to help streamline your hiring process and get the right people working for you sooner.
- Performance management ” Keeping your staff aware and trained on the latest practices in the field is another area where dedicated physical therapy expertise can help.
- Systems support ” Physical therapy departments can be helped with proven workflows and proprietary health information systems to help maximize resources.
In order to get the most out of a contract therapy provider, you should seek out a partner that believes in working with facilities on an individualized basis to provide custom solutions.
