Providers In Crisis

Notify us immediately if you need assistance with your Corrective Action Plans CAP’s/POC’s and evidence of corrections. Do not wait!

The minute the surveyor walks out of the facility, or even if you know prior to them leaving that you will need DIT’s, POC’s, CAP’s, or other assistance, contact us immediatly.  Your time period for response is limited!

A successful Corrective Action Plan involves many steps and these do take time. We need to ensure that you’re successful, and need to be able to work with you to:

  • Review your tags and citations
  • Develop your Corrective Action Plan
  • Provide training
  • Delivery and measure Quality Assurance
  • Plan around holidays and other calendaring issues

Provider Training

For over 15 years, Twogether Consulting has been delivering the best training in the state of Texas for HCS, ICF, and other providers.  We provide the best assistance you can find with training, survey preparation, billing preparation, policy and procedure development, and provider marketing.

Julie Blacklock, our founder and owner, has been an owner of an HCS program and understands the cost of running a program and the limited financial return sometimes for the amount of service the facility is expected to provide. As a provider yourself, you can trust us to deliver the best services at the lowest price.
