New Feature: Track Household Member and Non-Household Member Reports on the Home Compliance Tab

We now have an official way to track reports for household members and non-household members (e.g. frequent visitors, substitute care providers, etc.) on a home’s compliance tab.

Here is how it works:

  • Add a home’s household members and non-household members to the home’s people tab, as you already do.

  • Your agency’s system administrator can create activity and report types that need to be collected for the household members and non-household members.

  • Those items will show up on the home compliance tabs automatically for each member on the people tab, with their name and expiration date.

We’ll be updating our manual to assist administrators with configuration questions shortly.

We hope you like this new feature.

April Update

WHAT’S NEW

  • Have you checked your user ID’s lately?

This isn’t really new, but we’ve seen a lot of old user ID’s out there. Agency Administrators should immediately delete the UserIDs upon an employee’s termination. Upon deletion of the UserID, make the Staff Profile inactive. If you haven’t been doing this, please do so now. Deleting a UserID will not effect any of the collected data.

To learn more, please see our user article and video Deleting a User/De-Activating Staff Profile: Employee Leaves Agency.

  • Advanced Financial Management

Advanced Financial Management is an optional add-on item. To learn more, please see our Advanced Financial Management articles.

To discuss adding this tool to your system, talk with your Agency Administrator, or Agency Administrators, please contact extendedReach Support.

  • Audit Log

Audit Log is live! For more details, click here to see last month’s blog post.

WHAT’S COMING

  • Calendar View in Task List

Workers will soon be able to view their Task List on their extendedReach Workspace, in calendar format.

  • When completing an incident report, you will have the ability to select multiple categories, instead of one primary category.

Thank you for your Feedback/Ideas Forum ideas. This idea is from your votes!
