Change is now an essential element of doing business in our current healthcare environment. When keeping pace with constantly changing consumer needs/demands and various third-party payer and regulatory requirements, managing change well is extremely important.  Expanding your knowledge in change management will not only help you survive but thrive with the upcoming integration of Post-Acute Payment Models in the skilled nursing and home health settings and maintain a constant state of readiness for future healthcare changes.   

In this webinar, the presenters will address challenges your organization may be facing in moving towards a value-based therapy system.  You will be provided with a framework for managing change in your organization; strategies to assess and engage front-line staff when implementing these changes into practice; and, a process for compliance and sustainment.

  • Assess organizational and individual readiness for change.
