A timely break for disability service providers

NDIS asks providers to hold off registering until after July 1.

The long-cherished aspiration to have consistent quality in service standards Australia-wide in the disability sector, will soon start to become a reality.

The NDIS is hoping to provide a smooth transition for service-providers when its new Quality and Safeguards Commission (NDIS Commission) rolls out in NSW and SA after July 1.

For this reason it is encouraging caution.

Quality Management in the Disability Services Environment

The change to the NDIS in the disability services provider market within Australia has forced providers to look at their viability and quality standards, and organisations must adapt to a new person-centric business model or perish.

The disruption means services now have stricter pricing controls and there are considerable administrative overheads in everything from requesting payment for services, to meeting the quality standards. These have contributed pressure to the bottom line. Most providers have responded positively to this by looking at ways to improve productivity; however there are still opportunities to streamline operations further.

As the NDIS continues to gather momentum, many disability service providers are feeling the effects of significant change. Holocentric’s research at the recent NSW National Disability Service (NDS) Conference showed that 76% of NDIS service providers were highly concerned about achieving a clearer understanding of NDIS policies and changes as well as streamlining the approach to NDIS compliance.
