CliniDex is a powerful Assessment tool that integrates with other components of ResiDex, creating significant efficiencies for the nurse or supervisor.
When an Assessment question is answered, that answer will appear pre-filled in later Assessments that ask the same question, saving time in later data entry. Assessments can be integrated with service plans in ResiDex, allowing answers to an Assessment item to trigger services to be added to the resident service plan. Additionally, Assessment items answered once will appear on a number of relevant reports automatically, from assessment summaries to Abuse Prevention plans.
How to Schedule Services during an Assessment
The Assessment integration requires just a little setup, but once completed, service plan creation is simply an integral part of performing the assessment. Assessments performed either in desktop Residex or RTasks can take advantage of this feature.
How it works: when you do your initial setup for using CliniDex, we will help your staff configure links between individual Assessment Questions and Services your organization provides. Once this is in place, your answer to an Assessment Question will drive items that appear on the related resident's service plan.
When conducting an Assessment and selecting an answer to a linked assessment item is selected, a red message appears saying "1 service added," appears in the upper right of the Assessment screen. At this point, the appropriate service has been assigned to that resident's service plan. It is important to note that although a service has been assigned, no scheduling details have been provided; i.e., the scheduled time, assigned provider, start and end dates, etc....
You can either wait and add these details to the service plan once the assessment is complete, OR you may address them immediately. To do so, when the "1 Service Added" link appears, just click on the link; this will open a new window, where you can specify:
- The service's Start Date
- The End Date for the service, if any
- The time of day the service will be provided
- The day(s) the service will be provided
- What provider will be assigned the service
- Any task details or special instructions associated with the service.
