Today, we're focusing on a critical aspect of care management within CareNote: assigning care requests to providers, tracking their completion, and managing reports. This tutorial offers a detailed walkthrough of the process, from the initial assignment of a care request to the submission of a care provider’s report.

Assigning a Care Request

Step 1: Creating and Assigning the Request

  1. Create a Care Request: Begin by creating a new care request in CareNote.
  2. Assign to a Provider: Assign the request to a specific care provider, such as Jack Provider.
  3. Provider Notification: Once assigned, the provider receives a notification and alert regarding the assignment.

Care Provider’s Actions

Step 2: Provider Accepts and Completes the Request

  1. Provider Login: The care provider, Jack, logs into CareNote.
  2. View Assignment: Jack views the assignment and has options to accept, reject, or request reassignment. For this tutorial, the provider accepts the assignment.
  3. Report Submission: After delivering care, Jack submits a report detailing the care provided, including the date, method, and any follow-up requirements.

Managing and Closing Requests

Step 3: Closing the Care Request

  1. Closing the Request: By deselecting the follow-up requirement box, the care request is automatically closed upon report submission.
  2. Viewing Closed Requests: CareNote includes a filter to exclude closed records for clarity, but this can be turned off to view closed requests and their reports.

Step 4: Reviewing Reports and Requests

  • Accessing Reports: Providers and administrators can view the details of care requests and submitted reports, including whether any follow-up actions were attached.
