The fact is that the physical therapy landscape is more competitive than it’s ever been. With inpatient and outpatient facilities opening on every corner, patients have more options than ever for getting the care they need — whether it’s post-operative rehabilitation or therapy for an athletic injury. While this is a good thing for patients, most hospital therapy program administrators understand the many benefits that patients get when they receive physical, speech and occupational therapy during a hospital stay.
This is why an effective overall developmental strategy for your department is so important. From expansion of service offerings, mapping out growth plans and creating effective messaging, the components of a developmental strategy can be key to long-term success. If you find yourself needing assistance in this area, a dedicated partner with specialized experience in physical therapy development can help you build a winning strategy.
How a dedicated physical, speech and occupational therapy management partner can help your strategy
We understand how easy it is to get lost in day-to-day operations. For many administrators, it can be challenging enough to keep staffing levels up and patient needs met, so it can be difficult to plan for the future. By working with an organization with decades of industry-specific experience and proven resources, you can create a truly long-term, growth-oriented strategy.
To accomplish this, a strategic development partner can help you through these steps:
- An assessment of your current departmental needs and growth opportunities, including your specific therapeutic service offerings
- An evaluation of competing therapy providers, both inpatient and outpatient, in your surrounding community
- A review of your current workflows, communication and marketing efforts
- Identification of your department’s strengths and what new services could benefit your patient profile
