And you’re left prioritizing. And some things just get left behind. And then the survey comes, and there’s 3 years of empty binders, policies that were never updated, staff who were never supervised or in-serviced. And some conditional deficiencies. And a re-survey. And a consultant who charges crazy amounts of money to fix it before the surveyor is back in 40 days. And you stop taking patients while your entire team tries to fix 3 years of issues in a month. That’s a full staff of payroll.
You know, those things. The things you worry about before you fall asleep. The things that make a surveyor come back. The Emergency Management, Infection Control kind of things. The things that need to be done weekly AND monthly AND quarterly but aren’t done at all. The things that give you more and more anxiety and stress the closer you get to a survey. The things people in perfect home health agencies pay an Administrator 10k a month to do.
We do those things, for much, much less.

We get it. Whether you’re looking for a full time job or to supplement your income, you want to work at ONE company that’s organized and efficient, that gives you freedom and saves you time. Except most companies don’t have enough patients in your area so you’re stuck working with multiple companies, all with different softwares that you need to learn, different rules you need to follow and different payroll cutoffs you need to keep track of. Because you don’t get enough work from any one company, you’re also stuck going to further areas and driving longer. When you finally get home, you have a mountain of notes waiting. You either ignore them and have them pile up, along with your anxiety about the incomplete work, and phone calls from all the companies, requesting notes submission. OR you do them right away and spend hours a day documenting, leaving little time and energy for leisure. Both options suck, don’t they?
We’re large. In fact, we’re the largest in California, and growing in other areas across the nation; so you can work with one company and stay in one area. We’re the number one choice for almost all of our customers so in most areas, we can give you as many or as few patients as you need. And you choose which patients you want to take and which ones you’d like to skip.
We have a million ways, small and large, that we save you time on patient care, patient coordination and documentation. Add that to the time you save driving less and only dealing with one company and you’re left with a decision. What do you do with all that time you just saved? Do you spend it learning to Salsa dance, hanging with friends or relaxing with family? Up to you :)
Maybe you spend that extra time making extra money. Maybe you do 1 more visit a day. Multiply that by 22 work days. That’s like an extra grand a month ($800-$1,800 monthly depending on the discipline). Which is like 10k - 22k per year. What if you’re a workaholic and do 2-3 extra visits a day? Then, you take a month off a year to travel or pay off debt.

Unless the company is brand new, its history is vital to making an informed decision.
It’s important to really know if:
There was fraud, abuse or neglect.
There are any pending inspections or ADR’s.
There’s any outstanding debt.
There are overdue taxes.
The company has a bad reputation with industry vendors.
The referral sources will stay or go.
The charts are in good shape.
The staff know what they’re doing.
We conduct a full agency evaluation, looking at all relevant due diligence items such as billing history, office productivity, chart quality, industry reputation and financial trends.
We broker the transaction to ensure that your contracts are upheld properly.
We file all the paperwork to ensure it's done correctly.
Don’t get duped out of your money. Buy smart with Smart Business Solutions.
Smart Business Solutions began in response to the mediocre (and terrible) staffing and consulting companies in California. We know what it’s like to wait for an evaluation for weeks, while a staffing company gives you the run around. We know how it feels to not know the status of your enrollment application at the Health Department. Meanwhile, your consultant isn’t answering their phone after cashing your $8,000 check. It wasn’t OK then, and it’s not OK now.
We believe in honesty and transparency. In keeping our promises and taking responsibility for our actions. This is our promise to you: We will always do our best to be organized and communicative.
You have enough to worry about. Let us convert some of those worries into peace of mind by handling your administrative compliance, such as QAPI, Emergency Management and Infection Control.
It all starts with the best people. Add effective processes. And you get magic. Staffing with Smart Business Solutions means high level professionals see your patients on time, turn in notes on time, and get every visit approved before doing it.
Would you perform your own surgery? Then why would you handle your own company sale? Hire the best in the industry to ensure that you’re not getting a company that will shut down 6 months after purchase.
We're proud at how far we've come, but we're not satisfied. There's still so many ways to improve and further serve home health agencies, home care/private duty companies, and hospice care agencies!
