Behavioral Health Interim Management Approach
As Interim Managers, we work to sustain and improve operating services, consistent regulatory compliance, quality of care, clinical and business functions, and introduce field best practices. We work closely with staff.
We use a structured sequence of positive hands on management based on daily interaction with the hospital, organization, psychiatrists, medical staff, practitioners, administrators, quality, safety, and compliance managers, nurses, therapists, billing and other departments
Experience supports a reasoned process of deepening our understanding of the key issues and impediments, then working as collaboratively as possible to define and monitor actionable operations management and improvements that staff can embrace
Teaching and modeling are important tools along with quantified metrics that shift problem solving from perception and guessing to innovation and solution
We use tools / metrics we have developed to improve quality and performance of the operations
Positive momentum and change occurs through team effort guided by hard data, responsive, inquisitive, and transparent leadership
We provide frequent, structured written communications and status reports to the health care system’s leadership
Interim Behavioral Health Management
We work with hospital leadership daily and on-site to successfully operate and improve the psychiatric service line. Our interim management services may include implementing a turnaround plan that was developed as the result of compliance issues of an operations assessment and management action plan. In addition, we offer various deliverables that can range from problem-specific correction to full-service interim management.
