|A Message from Our President and CEO|
HPSA designations support the goals of hospitals, clinics, medical education programs, and physicians. The benefits go beyond a 10% bonus on Medicare reimbursements. Designations infuse incentives into a medical service area - boosting physician recruitment, physician retention, positive PR for hospitals, and enhancement to your bottom line. The end result is improved healthcare delivery for the patients. And that is what it’s all about.
HPSA Acumen has conducted HPSAs since 1997. Our company is uniquely qualified to tackle the most challenging HPSAs. We take responsibility for every step of the process, from the preliminary study to submission of the data. We function to support state Primary Care Officers (PCOs) on behalf of the client.
There are several challenges today in HPSA designations. Obtaining designations can be very complex with guidelines changing on an on-going basis. It requires detailed and consistent surveying that is sometimes difficult to achieve with mail-outs. It is this detail that can make the difference in the type of designation you are eligible to receive.
HPSA Acumen has advanced IT capability. This ability along with our experience in collecting detailed data and then creating shortage area analyses enables the client to have an excellent probability of success. Concurrently, these capabilities have given us an impetus to conduct CHNA (Community Health Needs Assessments) and Evidence Based Assessments. These types of assessments research and analyze the barriers to healthcare and propose realistic solutions to the problems.
The end result is a unique product that is both a useful and working resource supporting the client’s strategic plan and operations model. The multimedia product is delivered in a mode that captivates the audience and becomes a tool to share the vision.
Another service we can deliver is taking the many reports and plans and creating one that connects the dots. Think about it. How much more useful and efficient would it be for your healthcare delivery system!
All of us at HPSA Acumen welcome you to our site.
