Therapy management service refers to working with an outside service partner that works with hospitals in several key ways. Since physical therapy is such a highly specialized field, many hospitals, especially those with limited resources, can benefit from leveraging the expertise and resources of a dedicated organization.
Patients who are in the recovery process for any number of reasons, from surgery to auto injury, require physical therapy no matter what hospital they are admitted to. By working with a therapy service provider, facilities can leverage focused expertise that scales to a wide range of budgetary and operational needs.
Indicators that a therapy service provider can help you
Compared to other hospital service lines, physical therapy has a unique set of workflows, regulations and billing practices, not to mention patient care methodologies. For hospital administrators, it can be challenging to manage a patient-friendly program on a cost-effective basis.
If you’re looking to optimize in these following areas, it’s highly likely that a therapy services partner can help:
- Achieving regulatory compliance
- Streamlining systems of work and billing practices
- Strategic planning and program development
- Improving patient satisfaction
- Recruiting and staff development
Therapy services should be about more than outsourcing to another organization; it should be about building a functional, long-term relationship with a partner that understands your program’s needs.
