Running a physical therapy department in the modern health care landscape comes with a set of unique challenges. You likely started your therapy department with the goal of helping patients return to a better quality of life, but it’s easy to quickly find yourself overwhelmed by administrative and operational concerns that you were not prepared or trained for.
Trying to manage operations for your therapy department independently, either by yourself or by hiring in-house administration, can be both costly and time-consuming. While tending to these issues is completely necessary, it can start to feel like it’s taking away from your ability to provide the direct patient care you were trained for.
This is where a physical therapy department management consultant can assist you. By leveraging the expertise of a larger organization with a dedicated focus on therapy services administration, you can streamline your operations and put more of your time and resources into helping patients and truly growing your department.
Ways physical therapy departments can rely on management consultants
If you are looking for operational assistance in any of these four areas, there’s a good chance a physical therapy management consultant can help you:
- Billing and compliance support — Regulations and best practices are always changing. The right partner can help you stay on top of the latest updates and put systems in place to help you increase revenue from payers.
- Human resources management — Recruiting and hiring top talent can be time-consuming. Therapy services consultants can have access to recruiting networks to bring the right people to your therapy department.
- Professional development — Keeping your staff fully trained and compliant with industry-standard practices is another area where a partner can be of assistance.
- Marketing — Getting the right message to the right audience requires experience and resources that a dedicated physical therapy management consultant should have.
You should look for a partner who not only has decades of experience in these and other areas, but also someone whom you are comfortable building a personal relationship with.
