If Running Your Business Is Giving You A Headache, Then A Thorough Organizational Assessment Is Better Than More Medicine!
You need an organizational assessment. So, we have all been here. Whether it’s staffing, personnel, or regulatory change, its frustrating. If we are so locked in the day-to-day of running our business, then it can be difficult to see where operational changes would really make a difference. We’re too in the thick of it. Enter the objective person to complete an organizational assessment. It’s not just looking at your business where you know you have issues; that’s not what I’m talking about here. Let’s really understand what an organizational assessment brings to the table.
Organizational Assessment 101:
Anyone who knows me has heard me say it is sometimes difficult to see the forest for the trees. But, it’s true. We are so in the middle of all the trees during every day we work. So are our staff. We don’t take a step back to see the forest. We see agencies all over the United States making decisions that don’t benefit their businesses in the long run. Trying to manage the forest by making decisions only about trees will ruin the entire forest. Ok, enough about the tree analogy. So, do you find yourself stuck? Not making the dollars you should? Struggling with recruitment and retention? Is efficiency an issue? Are you not getting market share or seeing the benefits from your marketing efforts? Are clinical outcomes not where they need to be? These are all reasons to consider an organizational assessment.
What Is Typically Evaluated?
First of all, we focus organizational assessments around what your biggest concern is as an agency. Here are a list of targeted focuses within our organizational assessments:
- Clinical Documentation
- Clinical Efficiencies
- Coordinated Care Planning
- Clinical Management/ Visit Management
- Clinical Outcomes
- Financial Health/ Growth
- Marketing/ Sales/ Competitive Analysis
- Operations From Referral To Billing
- Job Roles Within Agency
- ICD 10 Coding
- Strategic Planning/ Potential Diversification
I hear you saying, “We already look at those things”. Well, we look at them differently. We are going to look at you compared to those in your area as well as those around the US. This includes realistic solutions you may not have considered. If you haven’t considered them, then it can be tough to know how to implement the change. This is where we can help. At Peek Consulting, we have the decades of background to educate, evaluate and promote the financial, clinical, and operational outcomes you want. It takes effort to make any change, but it’s time to work smarter and not harder. Call us today at 419-790-4454. We can show you how truly seeing the entire forest makes managing it much better. And maybe, we can help you pitch the big bottle of Excedrin in your desk drawer!
