Between making schedules, creating claims, doing payroll, and recruiting new staff, you are racking up hours of administrative time. Have you considered time spent on documentation by your clinicians? This time and therefore cost, can be cut down. First you must track current activities. Then you can implement a way to improve on unnecessary hours spent.
Ask your managerial staff to log hours spent on administrative activities.
- How long did they spend filling shifts this week, month, year?
- What is the length of time the average claim takes? How many claims do they generate in a year?
- What about conducting payroll? Do they look at hours logged and have to calculate totals themselves? Was your clock in/out software down one day, forcing them to manually input hours?
Ask your clinicians to log hours spent on administrative activities.
- How long does it take to document care given for each visit?
- Access previous care given?
- Sign up or search for a shift?
Cut down on admin time using technology
Home care and healthcare companies often use software to streamline activities. If there is a technology that can be used to lessen the work burden on your staff, then consider implementing it. Not only are you saving time by becoming more efficient, you are saving money in staffing and administrative expenses. If you are using a software created in the late 90s or early 2000s then you are not being as proficient as possible. Look into new software that have features you could only dream of before.
