From Twogether Consulting!

Hello IDD providers!

  Twogether Consulting is happy to announce that we have scheduled our 2-day Care Coordination (Case Management)  training in Austin, Tx for May 15th & 16th, 2024. (Private Providers Association of Texas is letting us utilize their office for the training.) After consulting with a variety of providers this seems to be the best time to have this session, as many of you may be taking vacation at the end of May or later in the summer. (This is a wonderful training opportunity for new providers, new program managers/directors, new case managers/care coordinators, new nurses, QA staff, and even as a refresher for current staff).  We will also be discussing the current survey process and some tips on preparing for survey on the day 2.  The cost is $275/person, but we can provide discounted group rates. In addition, Core-VA Solutions will be sponsoring a “Lunch & Learn” on day 1, for anyone who wants to attend on our lunch break.  You are not required to attend.  Core-VA Solutions will be discussing all the wonderful virtual assistant services they can offer IDD waiver programs as well as other health-related programs. Brittney Russo, the founder of Core-VA Solutions will be presenting.  As an HCS provider herself, she found herself needing assistance and tools to work more efficiently to run her day-to-day HCS program and out of this need Core-VA Solutions was born!  Brittney does understand the need for assistance and support for your nursing program, HR department, billing department (they are very adept at billing in THMP), and much more.  For more information about the Care Coordination training topics, agenda and registration, please go to www.twogetherconsulting.com website or  click on this link 
     Anyone is free to join us on May 15th, 2024 for the “Lunch & Learn” sponsored by Core-VA Solutions, even if you are not attending the Care Coordination training, but please contact Meghan Jones below, to register to attend the free lunch and learn if you are not attending the Care Coordination Training!
     The following webinar, “POC’s, Corrective Action & Follow-Up Post Survey” (HCS/TxHmL) has been rescheduled for June 4th, 2024.
      I will not be available from April 25th to April 29th.  Feel free to e-mail me or contact Meghan Jones to schedule an appointment.  Please contact us directly for your care coordination, QIDP, and nursing needs at info@twogetherconsulting.com or you may contact our assistant Meghan Jones at meghanjones.tx@gmail.com.
     We are happy to say that we will continue to provide whatever assistance we can with questions you may have, especially concerning HCS/TxHmL Care Coordination, Nursing, or general survey requirements from LTCR department in these programs.  We continue to assist those working with the ICF/IID program as well.
     We are currently providing on-site live training at this time and live training is open to the public as well.
     FYI-We do still have “mentoring” assistance (especially great for new nurses) from our RN consultant on an as-needed basis.  If you have new nurses who need training quicker than classes posted on the calendar, please let me know and we do offer some of our previously recorded sessions for a low cost which includes the handouts.  We are also happy to schedule one-on-one training sessions and mentoring with either of our 2 nurse consultants.  We can also provide you with some other nursing consultation resources.
     For HCS Providers who want to purchase specific services and/or specific forms we have on our website, may go to the following link “purchase services” page. If you are having issues downloading forms, please feel free to contact us at info@twogetherconsulting.com and I will be happy to send them to you.
