Effective Home Care Package Design

The Australian Government announced improved payment arrangements for Home Care Packages in the 2019-20 Budget. Under this measure, home care providers will be paid in arrears and for actual services delivered.

From September 2021 Home Care Providers will only be paid by Government for services delivered. This is a fundamental shift from the current home care package model and requires providers to "get their skates on" and start planning for the future.

Attendance at this contemporary workshop will provide attendees with a different way of thinking about designing their services and encourage innovation.

Why Should I Attend?

  • If you are concerned about your growing level of unspent funds
  • If you are concerned about consumers leaving your service and switching to other providers
  • If you want to offer a consumer-directed model whilst maintaining your financial sustainability

The webinar will provide you with an overview of what other providers are doing and some of the creative options that are available to consumers. There will be an emphasis on the importance of a wellness and health promotion approach to care models.

What does the webinar consist of?
This practical webinar has been designed to give you the knowledge and tools to package service offerings into relevant and attractive products for Home Care Package consumers. Particular attention will be given to what the changes to the Home Care payments mean for providers.

The webinar will cover excluded and included items in HCPs; the importance of a self-directed framework, linking assessment domains to care provision, and how to ensure compliance with standards and legislation.

The webinar consists of practical examples and extensive resources to assist you in implementing changes to your model.

Who is the webinar suitable for?
The webinar is suitable for care managers, finance team members, sales and marketing members, and Home Care Managers.

How will it benefit providers and consumers?
Providers will be able to reassess their model; consider what resources may need to be allocated for innovation and find out about what others are doing. Consumers will benefit from having access to a more consumer-directed model where their health needs are considered paramount so they can remain living at home.
