Thank you for your interest in engaging the services of KU HealthPartners. If you are interested in providing clinical services at a KU HealthPartners clinic, please contact Michelle Naus, CPA, co-treasurer, by email or 913-588-1604.
KU HealthPartners maintains an active database of advanced practice nurses and other health professionals. If you are interested in direct care services, an on-site evaluation of your clinical needs will be conducted, including an analysis of your capacity for receiving reimbursement for clinical services. An inventory of the nature of the work to be performed; the personality and knowledge, skills, and abilities required; and any other special requirements that would influence the success of a placed candidate will also be taken into consideration.
Typically, KUHP works with clients on an extended-term basis only (one year or longer). Initial dialogue between your organization and KUHP will serve to delineate the exact nature and terms of the agreement, and also ascertain the type of individual experience and characteristics that will fit within your current organizational structure. Ideally, a minimum of three candidates will be recruited, screened, and presented for your review. Unlike some placement agencies, KUHP presents only candidates that meet the exact specifications of your organization. The candidates may vary in terms of experience and style, but it is the goal of KUHP to present your organization with a diverse slate of candidates. After all the pieces have fallen into place, a formal Agreement for Professional Services will be prepared for signatures.
In addition to direct clinical services, KUHP also provides consulting services to healthcare providers and systems. Areas of consulting expertise include:
Work analysis and design
Human resource management
Regulatory interpretation and clinical systems development
Magnet hospital preparation
Advanced practice nursing and allied health reimbursement
Executive and leadership coaching
Quality improvement and program evaluation measurement
Direct care services includes hands-on care delivery to patients in a variety of clinical settings. Examples of this model of care include: care delivery by nurse practitioners in a family or specialty clinic setting, health screenings conducted by a multi-disciplinary team at a daycare or community center, audiologist services rendered in conducting hearing screenings or hearing aid fittings.
Consulting services include assisting organizations with work analysis and design, regulatory compliance through a systems approach, performance measurement, and Magnet Hospital evaluation and planning.
Clinical consultation is available to assist organizations with program development, establishing clinical standards of care and practice, and competency evaluation/verification. Examples of consulting services include: assistance provided to an acute care hospital with developing a clinical program from its inception, provision of expertise in documentation system development, or direct work with clinical staff in clinical pathway development.
Organizational and educational development offers assistance with staff development by providing content experts to assist with program design and evaluation, development of web-based training, provision of executive or leadership coaching, or facilitation of groups. Examples of organizational and educational development include: development of an ongoing training program for HIPAA compliance, conflict management coaching for leaders of organizations, or setting standards associated with staff competency measurement.
