Why Cost Savings is Critical in the IDD Industry

Cost saving in the IDD industry has never been more critical. Because the IDD industry is sustained in part by local and federal government funding, the availability of funds can vary significantly based on the current economic conditions and changes in local and federal legislation. As a result, IDD agencies must be able to adapt their operations quickly and efficiently in order to maintain the quality of services they provide despite lower cash flow. This blog will discuss why a cost saving solution for IDD agencies is absolutely critical for maintaining quality services and compliance.

New Challenges in the IDD Industry Necessitates Cost Savings Solutions

Changes occurring in the IDD industry have urged many IDD agencies to take a second look at how they are handling their funds. Factors such as industry growth and fluctuation have had significant impacts on the IDD workforce alone. Further, many Vertex customers work with grant-funding and in tough economic times previous donors may not be as willing or able to make the generous donations as they have in the past.

Unexpected challenges like the current pandemic have wreaked havoc on cash flow, adversely impacting the IDD community. Now, IDD agencies must be more strategic than ever about where their money is going and how they are spending it. Factors like inaccurate reporting and data discrepancies can lead to unintentional overspending, which can in turn put immense pressure on an IDD agency’s budget. With all this in mind, your best defense is having a good offense. This means being able to control costs and maximize the revenue you are entitled to.
