The Queensland Government has recently released a Tool Kit designed to provide practical assistance to providers who need to transition to the NDIS and respond to consumer demand.
Some of the tools are more useful than others. One we love is the Resource to gauge non-financial impacts of adding or changing a services under the NDIS.
We are always expressing how important it is to look beyond unit costing when developing or adding services. Tunnel vision on unit costing often leads to a sort of slash and burn mentality which can cause an enormous amount of damage to your business as unintended consequences can damage relationships with both clients and employees – the two most critical components of your organisation’s future success.
This resource provides a useful ‘zoom out’ tool to help providers identify those unintended consequences. It helps providers determine whether concerns are valid and what they need to do to resolve them, presenting all variables in a risk analysis for easy communication to key stakeholders.
As part of the Boosting the Local Care Workforce program, the Department of Social Services has released a new NDIS Demand Map that every provider needs to know about.
DSS recently announced new funding to assist providers and organisation to grow into the NDIS market. Rob Woolley explores the details.
Last year, we called out for nominations for the DSC Annual Provider Award for NDIS Transition. We are excited to award it to a provider who tackled the challenges of NDIS transition with creativity and fantastic stakeholder engagement.
Everyone is looking for the magical IT solution which will solve all their problems. But as Shiung explains, the problem is rarely ever about technology.
