 Emergency Preparedness Development & Planning Consulting

Every business needs a disaster plan, a strategy that will help you recover from man-made or natural emergencies.  Now CMS is requiring all businesses that accept Medicaid/Medicare have specific data in their Emergency Preparedness Plan. Your plan will need to be developed  by November 15, 2017, and practiced annually. Whether you are a new agency, or already have been in business for a while. In this day and age you will never know when a disaster may strike your agency as a whole or a client, or employee.

Does  the new Emergency Preparedness Plan have to be complicated? No. All you need to do is determine what disasters will affect your agency or clients, establish a plan, and practice different types of disasters on a yearly basis. Don’t let Emergency planning and strategy fall by the wayside; plan today and keep your business and staff safe for years to come. Using my Emergency Planning eBook or Online training program will help you set up and establish an Emergency Preparedness Plan to guide you through a disaster if one should occur.

The psychological loss of a business is very devastating.

25% of businesses that are involved in a disaster do not recover due to:

  • Loss of Income

  • Loss of Adequate Staff

  • Loss of Qualified Staff

  • Being under insured, therefore unable to rebuild

  • Costly price to rebuild

  • Owner doesn’t have the desire to go through the difficulties of starting over.

What types of disasters can affect your agency?

  • Fire

  • Blizzards

  • Floods

  • Man-made disasters

  • Work-place violence

  • Tornados

What types of disasters can affect your clients?

If you haven’t prepared for Emergencies that will affect your agency then maybe you may want to purchase the Emergency Preparedness Handbook on the front page on sale, consulting services (I will create your EPP with your assistance) $249.00.

Stop Struggling to be a Wonderful Leader and Take the First Step to Greatness!

Leadership is influence

Leadership is a Process, not a position.

Management keeps things the same.

Good leaders advance their team, employees and/or co-workers.

Some people who are bosses are not leaders. The don’t consider their staff as team members. They control their staff with rules, regulations, and policies. Their staff won’t give their boss extra effort or time. They have trouble working with people who are more educated than them. Employees follow bosses because they have to not because they want to.

Position Level Leaders:

Anyone can be in a position level leader.

What is a Position Level Leader? A position level leader is a no other option leader ( ex: Royalty, business owner children, or the owner of a business). This leadership level does not require the ability or effort to achieve a higher level.

Don’t settle for a position leadership level!

If you want to have a more positive, and lasting impact within your agency then this leadership program can help you quickly take the right actions to:

  • Learn how to Empower your staff
  • Manage conflict, disruptive behavior, and bullying in the workplace
  • Organize/Manage Daily Operations more effectively
  • Develop an Effective In-service Program
  • Implement strategies to build a Positive work environment

The home healthcare industry is the only industry where RN’s from any level of education/or training can be placed in a leadership position as an Executive Director or Director of Clinical Services. And this is the only healthcare industry where anyone can be thrust into a management situation without having advanced degrees for non-medical home health agencies.

If you are interested in rising from a “position leader” to a great leader, then click on the tab for the home health leadership program.

Marketing Program-Ready to Take Your Agency to New Levels?

If you’re ready to transform your agency and start growing an exciting and profitable future, then you’ll want to explore my Marketing Program.

Home health marketing has become very challenging over the past few years. As more and more agencies pop up, the competition is gaining more of your potential clients. To survive this new trend with home health you have to plan and execute a marketing program that takes advantage of all tactics to gain and maintain new clients. From traditional marketing methods such as attending networking events to connecting with adult children online, you need to be both creative and active to establish a larger presence in your community.

Word-of-mouth is always the best form of marketing, but you should never rely only on referrals to acquire new clients. Therefore, you need to look at some other effective low cost tactics to make your telephone ring off the hook. Having a new approach to marketing and to clinical programs or services, can make a difference in striving or surviving.

A highly effective home health agency rep needs a proven process for selling to focus on a clearly defined set of current referral sources and high probability prospects. When a skilled sales rep applies this proven process, they are able to generate measurable increases in referrals.

The opportunity for home health agencies to receive referrals physicians and discharge planners is no longer a good option. The increase in home health agencies bombarding physician’s offices and discharge planners are over whelmed with home healthcare marketers making it difficult for sales reps/marketers to get past gatekeepers or make appointments to see discharge planners. It is important for Agencies to create new and effective marketing strategies to bring in new referrals. Having an integrated and cohesive marketing plan allows each marketing technique you use to create branding and growth for your business.
