Need expert assistance with your upcoming DoN project? Strategic Care Solutions will help you get approval, and Radius Executive IT Solutions will manage the project from beginning to end.
Are you hesitating to get started on your elder care facility’s next big project?
It’s understandable — major capital improvement projects are expensive and time-consuming. That’s not to mention that you’ll also have to go through the process of getting it approved by the Department of Public Health.
Getting Determination of Need (DoN) approval is a highly involved process, and whether or not you’re approved will dictate if your project can proceed. Then, after all that, you have to actually manage and complete the project, ideally within budget and by your set deadline.
While this is certainly a complicated process, you don’t have to go through it on your own — Radius has partnered with Strategic Care Solutions (SCS) to help healthcare organizations like yours streamline DoN approval processes and manage the projects until completed.
If you want to improve your elder care facility, why is there such a complicated process preventing you from doing so?
The Department of Public Health’s DoN program (as with state-based Certificate of Need [CON] laws) is in place to encourage competition between businesses in your field, promoting both a high-quality service and low cost for your clients. Overall, this will help to develop a more beneficial statewide and national healthcare system.
However, regardless of how effective the program may be, that doesn’t mean it makes it easy for you to improve your facility. Fortunately, you can partner with Radius and SCS to get expert guidance and support throughout the application process and the subsequent project.
SCS has extensive experience in obtaining Department of Public Health regulatory approval, and Medicaid capital reimbursement, for projects that exceed the state’s DoN threshold. If you’re planning to replace, renovate, relocate or add or subtract skilled nursing beds, you’ll need approval to do so, and SCS can help you get it.
Once you have approval, the Radius team will oversee the project from end to end for you, including any and all IT components. We will perform audits and vulnerability scans, manage wiring, install video monitoring and Wi-Fi systems, and handle any necessary upgrades to your IT infrastructure.
