To insure a successful transition, we developed a Contract Training program that can be customized to each client’s needs and contract terms. This program helps level-set expectations for improvements to be achieved by the provider over the life of the contract in cost and quality of service delivery. It also helps the retained staff of the client understand their roles in managing the provider and the levers in the contract they can use to hold the provider accountable.
The Contract Training Program begins with a contract abstract document capturing the key elements of the contract and appendices. Next, a contract training curriculum and materials for a client’s stay back team as well as the new account team is developed. Finally, Capstan conducts training sessions for client staff to learn the ins and outs of the contract.
