Want a total ACFI solution for ongoing, sustainable funding? This option is designed to capture any potential lost funding initially and equip the provider with the internal capacity to maintain ACFI funding potential for the long term.
This service option is comprised of two phases: Initial Upgrade Phase, and an optional Ongoing Support Phase.
ACG ACFI Specialists are on site five days a week providing hands-on support, education, guidance and improved staff motivation until all reappraisals are submitted. They are open and approachable, enabling staff to voice their concerns and ask questions in a positive learning environment that allows them to build on their existing skills and expertise.
In the Initial Upgrade Phase, ACG takes the lead role in all ACFI requirements and manages staff compliance for completion of compulsory requirements under ACFI. This not only increases ACFI funding immediately but also acts as an integral learning process for facility staff.
For residents who are not eligible for an ACFI reappraisal, ACG investigates and identifies any areas that are not consistent with the ACFI business rules and provide solutions in consultation with the RACF.
An educational focus is emphasised throughout this Initial Upgrade Phase to provide the foundations for staff to help maintain high ACFI funding into the future.
ACG then recommends an optional Ongoing Support Phase where our staff work together with RACF staff for all new admission, mandatory and ongoing voluntary reappraisals and submissions and implement, where appropriate, improved ACFI structures and systems.
This option features an increased focus on education and sustainability including:
- Full support with ACFI submissions throughout the Initial Upgrade Phase
- ACG staff are on site weekly during the Initial Upgrade Phase
- Regular ACFI training and education for all levels of staff
- Optional ongoing support with ACFI submissions for new admission, mandatory and ongoing voluntary reappraisals throughout the contracted period to ensure the assessed care needs of each resident are aligned to the correct level of ACFI funding and all documentation is consistent and compliant with the ACFI business rules
