An update to the mobile app will be available on Wednesday, September 29 with Version number 2.17 for both iOS & Android. Caregivers will need to update their app on that date, prior to clocking in.

Introduction of Weekly Care Summary Report.

A Weekly care report has been introduced in the system similar to the DMAS-90 report with a more general aspect, so that it can be used in all the states.

a. In the Office settings, now there is a tab “Care summary” from which either DMAS90 or Weekly Care Summary can be enabled, and respective questions can be defined.

b. All the tasks and Service types will be part of the Weekly Care Summary report.

c. Client and caregiver signatures will be included

d. Under Admin Settings> Role management, a new privilege “Weekly Care Summary” is added under scheduling. Agency users will be able to manage the visibility of the DMAS-90 report and Weekly Care Summary individually.

e. Observations (if any) - The caregiver can respond Yes or No to questions in either the DMAS or the Weekly Care survey in the mobile app/browser portal.

f. When Weekly Care Summary is enabled, the Questionnaire tab will appear in the Schedule window (left menu), and Caregiver and Client signatures will be required at Clock-Out.

g. Caregivers will be prompted to answer the survey questions at the time of clock-out when the Weekly Care Summary Report is enabled from the office settings. Caregivers can leave narrative explanations on the Weekly Care Report, but they will not be required.

Realtime Invoice balance update while making Credit Adjustment.

Now, upon adding a value in the “Amount” field, the “Invoice Balance” field updates in real-time. This will help the Agency user to know the updated balance instantly and confirm that the correct function has been applied.

The caregiver will not be able to Clock-In/Clock-Out on an approved shift from the Caregiver portal/Smartphone App.

Earlier, the system allowed Caregivers to Clock-In/Clock-Out on Approved shifts. Now, the system will not allow this action from Caregiver Portal/Smartphone app. Caregivers will be given alert on the Caregiver Portal/ Smartphone app in case they try to Clock-In or Clock-Out on the approved schedule.

Improved Client Portal UX on handheld devices.

Client Portal is now adaptive to Mobile and Tablet devices. Thus, the user experience will be improved and will provide better browsing options.
