Contract therapy refers to the outsourcing of therapy and rehabilitation services to a third party on a contract basis. By working with a company that is dedicated to this sector of health care, hospitals can gain resources, experience and expertise that they may not otherwise have had access to. Contract therapy providers can deliver a wide range of services to hospitals of all sizes and geographic locations at a scale that can match budgetary and operational requirements.
Working with the right contract therapy provider can help your facility improve patient outcomes and satisfaction while meeting compliance and reimbursement goals. To help you determine if contract services are right for you, and better understand what they can offer, we’ve prepared the following guide.
What specific services can a contract therapy provider offer your hospital?
Hospitals that work with a contract therapy service typically receive assistance and support in the following areas:
- Recruiting and hiring — A dedicated therapy and rehabilitation provider will have access to personnel networks that can help bring in top talent.
- Performance management — Therapy and rehabilitation units often have unique operational needs that hospital administration can have trouble coaching and developing. Contract therapy providers have the specialized skills and workflow systems to streamline and improve service.
- Compliance support — A contract service has the resources to stay abreast of the latest regulatory changes and billing practices to ensure proper documentation and reimbursement of the services being performed in your facility.
- Strategic planning and marketing — The industry expertise of a contract therapy provider means they can provide recommendations for expanded services and marketing to keep your therapy program growth oriented.
