The workforce crisis in long-term care is not a new phenomenon, but one that has been decades in the making. Regulations make it difficult for facilities to stay efficient without investing in resources to manage the overload of daily administrative work.

Long-term staffing plans are certainly worth considering, but ultimately freeing up staff from administrative tasks and introducing operational efficiencies that allow them to spend more time with patients is in everyone’s best interest — the facility’s, the staff’s and the patients’.

Many administrative tasks in long-term care are repetitive and tedious, which leave care teams overworked and with less time to spend on patients. With minimal investment, however, hundreds of hours can be saved while delivering better patient outcomes, lower operational costs and faster revenue recognition.

In this episode, we’ll examine trends, challenges and opportunities facing long-term care leaders in skilled nursing. You will walk away with proven methods to enhance operational efficiencies while improving outcomes.
