The post-acute industry continues to grow in necessity as the aging population rapidly increases. This essential branch of care is overseen by passion driven professionals, dedicated to providing necessary attention during life’s most difficult moments. Unfortunately, amid increasing burden and scrutiny, the availability and bandwidth of these practicing professionals is becoming increasingly thin. With growing concerns of understaffing, overworking, and burnout, agencies lack the resources to properly provide care to all in need. Transformative intervention is required to uphold satisfaction for both caregivers and patients alike. In an industry where time is of the essence, agencies need tools and provisions to address this issue, ensuring quality care is available from clinicians with the physical and emotional bandwidth to uphold passion and positive change. To address these issues, MHA’s Innovation team has created Caregiver Accelerator (CA), a people-focused scheduling tool that creates a real-time overview of availability, care outcomes, need, and overall productivity. Overall, the solution revolutionizes scheduling and care quality, providing a holistic outline of all caregivers by branch on availability, productivity, and non-visit activity, to ensure effective use of all resources.
Caregiver Accelerator is a transformative tool that aims to empower schedulers, caregivers, and accelerate positive outcomes in patient care by using time and resources in the most productive manner possible. CA combines worker summary data, calendar availability, non-visit time, and overall visit status to create a detailed overview of caregiver success. The comprehensive data is updated hour over hour, allowing schedulers to make real-time decisions supported by detailed productivity and success metrics. The CA platform provides valuable insights and actionable metrics while improving the productivity and satisfaction of caregivers juggling the need to do more with less.
Armed with real-time data, customizable dashboards, and an intuitive interface, Caregiver Accelerator empowers agencies to monitor productivity effectively while making instant decisions grounded in metrics. With elevated patient care, optimized utilization of caregiver time, and cost reductions, Caregiver Accelerator leads the way to remarkable revenue growth. Through a dynamic dashboard, users gain immediate access and seamless filtering for various caregiver types, including LPNs, RNs, PTs, OTs, STs, social workers, home health/hospice aides, and chaplains. With the ability to filter by productivity level, agencies can swiftly identify both over- and under-productive caregivers, optimizing resource allocation. These tailored caregiver filters effortlessly segment caregivers based on employment type while distinguishing new hires from those in training. This feature enables agencies to pinpoint areas requiring additional training or support, ensuring that productivity goals are not only met but exceeded. Caregiver Accelerator is a step above a scheduling solution; it's a pathway towards increased efficiency, satisfaction, clarity, and excellence in post-acute care.
