The essentials you need to understand AN-ACC

This course will provide support for your funding management teams to understand AN-ACC for residential aged care funding.

This short online course will guide you through the AN-ACC funding model, the case mix classification and the AN-ACC assessments. You’ll gain an understanding of the complete AN-ACC process to help you advance in your role.

The role of an AN-ACC Coordinator is substantially different to that of an ACFI Coordinator. The AN-ACC model will require residential aged care providers to analyse data and make informed decisions on which resident to admit, when to ask for a reclassification (up or down) and how this will impact care minutes and the roster. AN-ACC Essentials will help you understand the differences and skills needed.

“The course was well presented and not rushed. The facilitator encouraged participants to engage in discussions and ask questions.”

Alex, AN-ACC Essentials participant, 2021
“All was valuable as my knowledge of the workings of AN-ACC is minimal. I particularly found seeing the clinical assessments that will be used to assess a resident most interesting.”

Erin, AN-ACC Essentials participant, 2021
“Having the items that I have read in current Dept reports and available info explained deeper and clearly so as now I understand AN-ACC processes and requirements in greater detail. I am looking forward to the advanced course.”

Catherine, AN-ACC Essentials participant, 2021

More about this course

What are the benefits of attending?

For aged care providers of residential aged care services, the introduction of AN-ACC means they will need to realign their people, processes, some organisation structures, and data reporting to understand the new funding model. They will need to look at their residents through a new lens and know how to start the revenue process and build the clinical evidence for the independent assessment teams to confirm. For Care managers and ACFI/AN-ACC coordinators, their transitional journey starts now as evidence shows the introduction of new funding models can take years to embed. This course will help by providing:

  • Clarity for revenue management professionals on what the new funding world will look like 
  • Connection with colleagues in the field to share experiences and practical steps to help manage change 
  • A roadmap for what you can start doing today in order to be ready for Shadow Assessments
  • Knowledge of Mirus tools that can offer insights and support
  • An understanding of the AN-ACC clinical assessment tool and process
  • A certificate of attendance with accredited CPD points
