Long-term care operators know first-hand the complex behind-the-scenes work that goes into running a facility, particularly in the middle of a pandemic. Burnout is real and widespread, even among administrative staff.
One of the greatest challenges for skilled nursing facilities during this time is retaining sufficient staff to handle the most essential administrative tasks. It is no wonder, then, that many providers are struggling to capitalize on opportunities for growth and improvement when their key staff is already overwhelmed with a swollen workload and pandemic uncertainty. This is why more long-term care operators are increasingly turning to healthcare outsourcing.
Leveraging the expertise of third-party vendors is a fundamental benefit of outsourcing in the healthcare industry. In the midst of a pandemic, patient welfare is your top priority. Many of our partners have learned to lean on affordable experts who can take the load off their essential staff.
SRX offers healthcare outsourcing solutions by deploying our intelligent technology alongside expert guidance. When you partner with SRX, you empower your employees, save money, and improve service for your long-term care, post-acute care, or skilled nursing residents.
Why Do You Need Healthcare Outsourcing?
As the complexity of managing a long-term care facility becomes an increasingly herculean task, the ability to optimize a facility’s operations in-house becomes equally implausible, even for the largest operators. When we begin talking about LTC drug cost management, that complexity compounds.
Thankfully, with healthcare outsourcing, you can bring specialty knowledge into your operations and relieve the burden on your full-time staff. The most common examples of outsourced healthcare services include:
- Billing services
- Claims processing services
- HR services
- Payroll services
- Data entry services
- Patient care services
- IT services
SRX’s technology offsets the extreme burden of staff having to comb over the minutiae of a LTC facility’s drug spend to uncover drug rebates and possible cost savings. The benefits of outsourcing in healthcare often outweigh any associated out-of-pocket costs when providers find the right partner. Our partners are able to experience the following benefits:
- Save money. Outsourcing to experts means accessing specialists with existing workflows optimized beyond what in-house staff can achieve while affordably managing multiple priorities. For example, SRX helps long-term care facilities automatically identify and maximize drug manufacturer rebates, resulting in tens of millions of dollars cut from our clients’ drug costs. Trying to capture every single rebate yourself is arduous, but outsourcing this task can result in significantly lower facility drug costs.
- Avoid mistakes. The right healthcare outsourcing partner can help keep your facility’s operations within agreed upon contract terms and regulatory body compliance requirements. This is especially important with your pharmacy spend. SRX’s software and advisors reduce waste and prevent facilities from ordering off-formulary.
- Focus on patients. When you have a third party handling administrative tasks, you have more time to focus on patient health and welfare.
- Increase offerings. It’s easier to expand your services when you have the time and money to do so.
Access experts. Healthcare outsourcing adds value to your organization by adding non-permanent, flexible resources that can be deployed as-needed.
