Vendor Selection and
Contract Optimization

Selecting the right therapy vendor and negotiating favorable contract terms is critical to resident satisfaction, clinical reputation and strong financial outcomes. Selecting the right contract therapy company does not mean using the largest company, or the one with lowest contract pricing, but rather weighing a variety of factors and how they fit with your organization. This has become more important with the introduction of PDPM.

Axis Healthcare professionals bring unique insights from experience operating a contract therapy company to develop a process for evaluating the best options for your organization. This process involves evaluating a variety of factors including payer mix, historical census and the clinical needs of residents. From there they develop a process for evaluating therapy providers including guidance on negotiating the most favorable contract terms. The goal is to find a company that is the right fit for your organization while also generating significant savings in monthly therapy costs.
