    Banner Home Health’s structure is set up to provide Home Health Physical Therapists multiple avenues for support that isn’t available at other agencies – a field preceptor, an IT specialist, a dedicated scheduler, a nurse educator during orientation (available every day to help with documentation questions and challenges), a telehealth team, a clinical manager (intimately manages only a small team of 20 clinicians), and in office triage support.  This structure is designed to assist field clinicians in managing their caseload appropriately and not feeling “alone” in the field!
