Consulting for Home Health

We are specialists that can help your organization adapt and succeed under the Affordable Care Act, healthcare reform initiatives. North Consulting Solutions team are veterans in home health and can help you develop a strategy for leveraging these opportunities. Whether it means, growing your agency, finding the most cost effective census that maximizes profitability, staffing solutions, revenue cycle management (billing processes), looking for a merger partner or being named a preferred provider for a hospital, we will support you with data and guidance to make the best decisions for your organization.

The home healthcare industry faces many ongoing challenges.

Consider that this era has shown us less reimbursement, skyrocketing professional salaries, more and more regulatory and governmental requirements, while the need for excellence in quality of care and customer service is at its max. All of this leads to shrinking profit margins, whether you are a small independent provider or part of a large national company.

Often the challenges seem insurmountable. To provide excellence in customer service and quality while remaining compliant and financially successful is not always easy, but we wouldn't be in this business if we wanted easy.

Our industry is needed by the clients we serve and this need will increase considerably over the next decade as the baby boomers become senior citizens.

So, don’t be discouraged!

We know our industry has great value, so let’s make it easy and fun as we go forward! That is why North Consulting Solutions is here to help your agency:

  • Have excellence in customer service and quality of care

  • Maintain regulatory compliance

  • Revenue Cycle Management

  • Increase profit margins

  • Locate and keep happy, satisfied employees
