If you can identify big cost drivers, you can prevent increases from happening. We provide administrators at our partnering schools with a sophisticated analysis of all relevant program data at no additional cost to the district.
With careful analysis by PTS’s Clinical Directors, you can detect the sources of potential cost increases far enough in advance to take decisive action that prevents or mitigates an undesirable outcome. This allows you to maximize the productivity of your therapy team and help more students while staying within budget.
When BudgetWatch™ helps us uncover a potential cost-savings opportunity or financial concern, PTS recommends proven initiatives to address challenges, such as excessive or inaccurate referrals, unchecked caseload growth, or decreasing therapist efficiency.
By analyzing the data, our Clinical Directors get to the root cause of the issue. Then, they equip teachers with pre-referral, classroom intervention strategies to support students without referring them to related services. Doing this:
BudgetWatch™ also helps reduce the time you spend on compliance reporting. That’s because our Cost-Per-Child Reports provide administrators with a permanent attendance and service record for every student PTS serves.
This report enables you to track Individualized Education Plan (IEP) compliance and document the real cost of each student because it itemizes every minute of billing applied to a specific child by category, date, and therapy type.
