AN-ACC funding and workforce optimisation helps you validate the accuracy of your subsidies and review your rosters so that they are achievable and efficient

AN-ACC has created a direct link between funding classifications (revenue) and care minutes delivered in your rosters (cost). To maximise your business performance, you now need to optimise both key profit drivers together.

This program will help you to: 

  • Educate your key clinical and funding staff on the funding framework so that you can be your own assessors and be in control of your own process
  • Identify gaps between actual care needs and classifications so that you can prioritise the most valuable requests sooner
  • Make sure your clinical documentation supports your requests so that you get more of the results you expect
  • Analyse the impact of classification changes on your current rosters and what your target rosters should be at different levels of cost and compliance
  • Ensure you have reporting and processes in place to make sustainable decisions.

Five components of the AN-ACC funding and workforce optimisation program

Phase 1 – Funding assessment and site education
Phase 2 – Resident case conferencing to map current versus forecast classifications
Phase 3 – Care Management System alignment to funding assessments
Phase 4 – Roster analysis and scenario building
Phase 5 – Process and reporting review and transition planning

Phase 1 – Funding assessment & site education

Two staff members per site will receive training in the Mirus Academy AN-ACC Advanced course. This course focuses on the clinical and quality framework of AN-ACC and helps team members to learn to apply the assessments to achieve a classification outcome by ensuring your clinical information is relevant.

This process lays the foundation of education ensuring assessments are run properly to give the best forecast prediction when assessing residents. It also gives your staff the tools to validate the assessors after they have classified your residents.

Phase 2 – Case Conferencing & mapping to classifications

We will conduct case conferencing sessions with your staff for all your existing residents to establish a forecast classification while also upskilling your teams so they can continue this process after the engagement is complete.

Case conferencing with your AN-ACC team will help to determine a current forecast classification for all current residents. This results in a gap analysis report we present to your team for actioning. Some residents would result in a funding uplift, some a decline due to reablement, and some would remain the same. We will help assess which residents you would like to request reclassifications for.

Phase 3 – Care Management System alignment to funding assessments

In this phase we ensure your Care Management System’s care plans, notes and documentation are in alignment with the results identified and the associated assessments. This strengthens your team’s documentation practices and helps with identifying future reclassifications.

To do this, we gain remote access to your care management system and look for incongruencies between what has been written and what was identified in discussions with staff. Discrepancies are presented to your clinical team so that amendments can be made.

Phase 4 – Roster analysis and scenario building

We will collect your roster data and analyse it to determine what your starting position is and the variables you can control while managing a classification and care minute process. We will take into consideration other compliance factors such as model of care and Star Ratings to ensure you have the data you need to make strategic decisions on each facility you operate.

Phase 5 – Process and reporting review and transition planning

As part of phases one to four, we will assess the maturity of your systems and processes and help you make a plan for transitioning to a sustainable operating model for AN-ACC. This will help you ensure the data is being collected and reviewed at the right frequency by the right people to deliver sustainable results. Managing these two primary profit drivers effectively will help you to ensure you have greater transparency and success with your business under AN-ACC.

Ongoing Support

After the process is finished you will feel comfortable that the processes and systems are available to you and that a sustainable process is achievable. In some cases, however, you may decide to maintain a level of support to the process to ensure it stays as efficient as possible.

We offer several levels of ongoing partner support that can be discussed at any time.
