Following are the changes in this release:
NOTE: Not all features are immediately available to all portal users. Many agencies limit user access to just what is important for doing a specific job. Any new feature below marked with an ** will need to have access granted from the Admin Settings>Role Management.
User will be able to select the records per page, say “100 records” in grid and system will save that value as preference for that user. The number of records will stay intact when the user will logs into the system later.
Also, paging on the top (addition to bottom one) is being shown on client, caregivers, staff, payer, prospective clients etc. section for user to select & not scroll every time.
Add client & caregiver Status filters on the EVV Clock-In/Clock-Out Location and Mode report so the user can get just the necessary data.
Under Release Visit Plan, when the user is publishing the visit plan, the system will highlight the caregiver name to let the user know before releasing that the assigned caregiver is not available for the shift that has been planned for him/her.
Under Payroll, View finalized Payroll Batches, the CSV export will include, the unique Time tracking ID of the caregivers.
Just like caregiver receiving weekly notifications on Open Shift(s) present in Agency database, agency user(s) can also receive the same notification. This can be enabled by going into Office Settings > Notifications section.
From now on, agencies will NOT be able to create multiple caregivers /admin/agency users/other staff with same email address. If the agency tries to create a user with an email address that already exists, the system will generate the validation message that the email address already exists for another user and needs to be unique.
Risk Factors and Communication Barrier fields from Personal Care section of assessments can now be managed from Admin Section > Clients > DDM – Client Management section.
New report under Reports >> Clients >> Client Bill Rates showing service type & bill rates for client in a date range selected.
User can search for the caregiver to fill the shift from schedule calendar without opening the schedule.
When a user clicks on the Open Shift schedule, there will be a new button on the quick view labeled “Find Caregiver”. By clicking on this link, the system will redirect the user to the Find Caregiver screen and system will perform the auto search for available caregivers to fill the open shift selected.
Agencies from California or other states as well, can now configure their agency instance to pay caregivers for double overtime as well.
We have revised the overtime control in office settings > Payroll section so that agencies can configure the regular hours, OT Hours (1.5x) and Double Overtime Hours (2x) configuration.
(Above mentioned scripts are just for illustration purposes)
If an agency does not consider overtime under any condition, they can leave that section blank. e.g. If an agency does not want to give 1.5x multiplier on 7th consecutive day worked, then they can leave the multiplier blank and system will not apply the overtime multiplier.
Payer Name and Caregiver Name columns have been introduced in all 5 HHA Exchange compatible reports for better visibility on schedules.
Please Note: Payer Name and Caregiver Names are used only in HHA Exchange reports view. These names will only come in the report export file if it is required as per HHA Exchange guidelines.
On Client Portal > Calendar section, Calendar export format has been refined to become more printer friendly.
Similar export is implemented on Main Agency > Client Profile > Schedule Section > Print option.
From now on, whenever a scheduled shift status is changed to ‘Canceled by Caregiver’, the agency user will put in the reason for changing the shift status and CareSmartz360 system will automatically remove the caregiver from shift and make the shift as Open Shift.
**A new report named “Call-Off” report has been added into the system where agency can go in and put the schedule date range and see all the schedules which were marked as ‘Canceled by Caregiver’ and what was the reason given and who canceled the shifts.
Whenever a shift status is marked as ‘Canceled by Client’, system will capture the data on reason given, who canceled the shift and show this data in form of report so that agency can view these cancellations at office level.
On Time Tracking screen, clicking on Client or Caregiver’s name link, agencies will be able to perform two operations: Send SMS or Open Profile.
Till now, users were only able to send SMS from Time Tracking Screen, but from now on, they will be able to open client/caregiver profile in new tab as well.
A new report has been introduced under scheduling report category named as Care History.
Currently, users have to open each schedule shift and then navigate to open the Care History of that specific shift.
But from now, it will be very easy for the agency to open the Care History of a shift with the click of a button.
Users can search all the schedules for one or multiple client(s) with date range as well.
On Time Tracking Screen, Client Type Filter has been introduced on Time Tracking screen to filter out Client list.
Under Client Profile > Schedule, system will now show Service Type name in the Authorization strip so that its easy for the agencies to track clients who have multiple Authorization with same number but configured with different service type.
