Where Do You Start?
Some of the challenges facing early childhood intervention services providers include planning and allocation, i.e., they struggle to find allied health workers. In addition, many are not accurately measuring KPI’s such as utilisation, plan completion, customer engagement and so on.
This means they don’t have clarity over their data and can’t make informed decisions.
So, if you want to grow your early childhood intervention services organisation, you’ll need to identify your gaps and opportunities and develop a plan to maximise efficiencies while still delivering your services.
On the surface this may appear overwhelming, however, it need not be complicated.
When you know how to assess your early childhood intervention services organisation correctly, you’ll obtain all the data you need to develop a plan for sustainable growth.
Where Do You Start?
Once completed, you can use your key drivers and unit costs to determine your budgeting requirements and cash flow forecasts.
Then, it’s time to undertake scenario modelling, which will help you determine what decisions, systems and processes are needed to achieve the results you aspire to.
Some decisions may include making changes to your back-office processes, implementing software to support your growth, new job descriptions, and re-defining roles of management.
Other things to consider are how you can reduce waitlist times, open new revenue opportunities and how you can monitor your operations for quality and continuous improvement.
If you don’t have the capacity to undertake this process in house, you may consider engaging a Not-for-Profit and NDIS Provider business transformation specialist to assist you.
