Frequently Asked Questions
Why Do I Need a Subscription?
Becoming a provider is only the first step in delivering supports to vulnerable members of our community. Provider Institute’s resources are designed to support providers through any industry changes that may impact on day to day business operations. With an ongoing subscription, you can rest assured knowing that our templates and resources will always be updated to align with changes, and that our Watch.Read.Do compliance feature will keep you and your team informed and educated about what those changes mean to you.
How Will a Subscription Save Me Money?
As a provider operating in the community sector, you will be required to undergo Audit. Whether this is an Audit under the NDIS, or a Quality Review in Aged Care, audits are, and will continue to be, a pivotal part of maintaining your approval status. Not only this, but audits exist to ensure your business is doing the right thing by the people it supports.
A large part of the Audit process is a review of your documentation and processes to ensure your business is up to date and aligned with the latest legislative and regulatory requirements. Unfortunately, with the consistent changes, staying current with this information is a cost of your time, money and internal resources. And that’s precisely why Provider Institute’s subscription model exists – we source the changes, send you the updates, let you know what they mean and provide advice on how to implement the changes in your business.
By staying on top of these changes with up to date documentation, you reduce the risk of non-compliance at audit – saving you time, money, stress and resources in the long run. It’s that simple.
How does Provider Institute differ to a compliant CMS?
It is common to see CMS providers offering a ‘compliant’ system, however we need to be mindful of the wording associated with some of these systems (e.g., NDIS Compliant CMS or NDIS Compliant Software) as it can lead to confusion and misunderstanding. Software providers may say they’re compliant by providing the latest Price Guide or Fee Schedule as an example, but this does not mean your organisation will meet its compliance requirements at audit. A compliant CMS absolutely helps, but it doesn’t explain how to manage and implement a client’s funding, how to update Service Agreements or ensure that staff understand what requirements are in practice. And that’s where Provider Institute comes in! You can read more about the differences between CMS compliance and organisational compliance here.
