Many aged care facilities in Australia believe they’ve maximised their AN-ACC funding, yet substantial amounts often remain untapped. In a dynamic aged care landscape, fully utilising AN-ACC funding can significantly enhance your facility’s financial health. 

Here’s how aged care facilities can uncover hidden funding opportunities and leverage them to improve operations and care quality.

Understanding AN-ACC Funding: The Australian National Aged Care Classification (AN-ACC) funding model is designed to allocate resources based on individual care needs. Key elements include comprehensive assessments and ongoing reviews to ensure funding aligns with the care provided. 

Staying informed about recent changes and updates to the AN-ACC model is crucial for maximising funding.

Identifying Hidden Funding Opportunities: Many facilities miss out on additional funding due to incomplete assessments or outdated documentation. Regular evaluations of each resident’s needs are essential. 

Key areas to focus on include:

Detailed Assessments: Ensure all health conditions and care needs are thoroughly documented.

Regular Reassessments: Schedule periodic reviews to update care plans and funding claims.

Training Staff: Equip your team with the knowledge and skills to accurately assess and document care needs.

Strategies to Maximise AN-ACC Funding

Implementing these strategies can help uncover hidden funding:

Consultancy Services: Partner with aged care consultants like Health Generation to gain expert insights and guidance.

Comprehensive Staff Training: Regularly train staff on the latest assessment techniques and documentation requirements.

Utilise Technology: Adopt software solutions for efficient record-keeping and reporting. While many facilities rely solely on software, Health Generation’s approach combines technology with expertise, often uncovering over $100,000 to more than $1 million in additional funding for aged care homes.
