Kronos for Long-Term Care

Today’s long-term care providers face sweeping demographic, legislative and economic changes that are transforming their delivery of care. Reduced reimbursement, the Affordable Care Act employer mandate, and an aging population are just of few areas of concern. Your success navigating through these changes will depend on the quality of care your residents receive and how efficient you are in delivering it.

  • Staffing Post-Acute Care and Senior Living Facilities to Meet the Demands of Increasing Acuity

    Post-acute care and senior living providers are facing increased staffing challenges due to higher acuity residents and patients. From a demographic perspective, the over-65 population is expected to double by 2030, and this will place more demands on post-acute care and senior living providers and their staff. This growing over-65 population has a high burden of chronic disease, resulting in increasing acuity levels among residents. Labor is the top source of operating costs for post-acute providers, and managing these costs while striving to staff facilities with the best mix of people and skills to deliver high-quality care appropriate to the workload intensity levels of the resident will become a bigger challenge. These issues make effective workforce management solutions that allow providers to staff specific to workload intensity levels a critical issue.

  • Advanced Home Care Sees $900,000 in Labor and Timing Savings with Kronos for Healthcare

    Advanced Home Care's previous workforce management system and processes were not working, nor was it allowing optimized use of the McKesson Homecare™ solution. Following a patient home visit, employees logged onto a laptop to enter their hours and select a billing code in McKesson. Some clinicians waited until the night before payroll closed to enter 2 weeks of their time and activities. Faulty memories and code misinterpretation led to a 30% error rate. Automating payroll and adding performance management capabilities within its existing system would have been too costly. Using the Kronos solution integrated with McKesson, Advanced Home Care has virtually eliminated paycheck corrections — reducing its compliance risk and increasing productivity — and saves more than $900,000 annually in labor and time.

  • The Value of Evidence-Based Human Resources in Healthcare Organizations

    The latest developments in HR management are about changing the way human resources professionals gather, process, and evaluate information, as well as changing the questions they ask. Often characterized as a “feeling and intuitive” profession — one that relies primarily on observation and instinct rather than data and strategy, human Resource (HR) healthcare executives must evolve from  guardians of the status quo to trailblazers for innovation and growth. Using Evidence-Based Human Resources, HR professionals can now focus on both business strategy and standards of evidence which allows them to demonstrate how “intangible” human capital can be observed and measured, and add tangible business results.
