We are committed to helping our clients through the transition by providing advice and tools to support you as you work through the implications to your business across finance, people, processes, data and systems.

Learn the operating model where funding, admissions and care minutes are optimised in our February Webinar.

History shows us that transitioning a funding mechanism in Aged Care is hard. For several years, the industry struggled to draw the correct funding out of the model. This is mostly due to the steep learning curve required to understand the nuances of the new model and the subtle adjustments in operating model that is required to optimise the results.

A significant proportion of the industry is still working off their AN-ACC shadow assessments. This is creating inefficiencies in process as organisations are finding it difficult to optimise revenue and connect funding (case mix) to minimum care requirements. In addition, workforce shortages and legacy rosters are resulting in significant spend on overtime and agency staff.

This webinar will explore the essential elements of an AN-ACC target operating model that will drive efficiencies in your rostering.

clinical governance framework

Should I integrate AN-ACC assessments into my clinical governance framework?


While some care management systems have started to release AN-ACC assessment tools into their suite of assessments, providers should consider whether integrating these assessments into their clinical governance framework is beneficial and when is the best time to do this. In this webinar, we shared the experiences of over 40 aged care providers, representing 30,000 beds, on their transition to AN-ACC, what the are factors that providers should consider when making the decision if or when to adopt the AN-ACC assessments, which assessments may be more fit for purpose or beneficial than others, and some examples of the approach taken by providers on the industry panel.

AN-ACC care minutes

How to take care of your care minutes

The 200 minutes of care per day (including 40 minutes of Registered Nurse time) are an average target across the sector. Each facility will have a unique care time target, depending on the AN-ACC case mix classification of their residents, at a point in time. This will mean that watching your care minutes change will be an important part of predicting your future workforce demands. Through our work transitioning aged care clients from ACFI to AN-ACC, we field lots of questions related to care minutes and rostering. Along with an industry panel, this webinar shared these insights.

AN-ACC pain management

Transitioning pain management under AN-ACC

One of the key issues providers need to address with AN-ACC is pain management. We need to remember (1) There is no specific pain management claim under the AN-ACC model, and (2) Allied Health staff are not included in the care minute requirement. This webinar explored the key steps that can be taken to transition your 4b pain management program.
