Great Neck, NY February 3rd, 2022
Home Care Consulting Firm in New York paves the way to help small struggling Licensed Home Care Service Agencies in NY. Avid Lead Consultant at Emmanuel Consulting Agency was interviewed and expressed deep concern for the home care industry in NY and across the country. Registered Nurse Julia Akinyooye, RN MSN Nurse Consultant at Emmanuel Consulting Agency, provides expert consulting services to home care businesses.
Since the state passed a moratorium back in April 2018, there has been a significant shift in the homecare industry. Further, the Covid-19 pandemic has drastically changed the home care industry in many ways. Shortages of home care workers are the leading cause of the significant struggles home care agencies are experiencing. Meanwhile, the more prominent home care agencies in NY are currently preparing to receive FMAP funding and awaiting approval from the state and CMS.
As an initiative to help small home care businesses get over the hump of the pandemic and as part of Emmanuel Consulting Agency’s 7th anniversary in business, the NY based home care consulting firm has formed an initiative to provide complimentary consulting to small businesses who demonstrate great need in consulting assistance and compliance. Emmanuel Consulting Agency will offer a limited number of hours of consulting to LHCSA’s that demonstrate great consulting need and financial struggle for the month of February. The consulting firm believes this will help struggling agencies stay compliant and allow the consulting firm to “give back” to the agencies that were not on the list to receive the pending FMAP funding(ARPA-funded Long-Term Care and Value-Based Payment Readiness investment). Furthermore, Emmanuel Consulting Agency has since signed a campaign initiated by the NYS Association of Health Care Providers (HCP), a home care advocacy group based in Albany, NY, to urge the state to assist LHCSA’s struggling due to the pandemic and demand emergency financial relief. One of the major concerns of the advocacy group relayed in a recent survey to its members stated that nearly 90% of home care respondents are having difficulty serving patients, and nearly 11% of respondents stated they are having financial losses so great that they are considering closing. If you are a small LHCSA grossing less than 5 million in revenue annually, you may reach out to Emmanuel Consulting Agency to see if you qualify for complimentary consulting as part of their comradery to home care agencies.
