Most hospitals recognize the importance of providing occupational therapy to patients under their care. After experiencing a serious injury or recovering from surgery, patients need to begin their journey back to normal activity as soon as possible. Having an occupational therapy unit on site allows for a continuity of care that gets patients learning the skills they need from day one.
The challenge for many hospitals is that there are many unique administrative requirements that come with managing therapeutic services such as occupational therapy. From recruiting and staffing to remaining compliant with specialized regulations, hospital leaders dealing with limited budgets and resources have to face either compromising the level of service or not providing occupational therapy to patients.
How outsourcing occupational therapy can be a cost effective solution
This is why hospitals are increasingly turning to outsourced occupational therapy services with contract providers. A dedicated organization can provide a larger scale of expertise and resources that hospitals can leverage. By outsourcing occupational therapy, hospitals can gain the following benefits:
- Less administrative overhead
- Access to recruiting and talent networks
- Industry-specific knowledge on best practices
- Compliance and billing support for increased revenue
Working with a contract therapy services provider means your hospital administration is able to focus more on your core service lines without sacrificing the quality of this essential step in the recovery process.
