ResiDex allows users to determine both the types of Assessments being performed as well as customizing the names of these Assessments. The facility's preferred name (rather than our defaults) will appear on reports such as Assessment Summaries, Worksheets, Forms and Reports. More information on Assessment Types may be found here.
In the process of completing an assessment, the individual's care and services needs are identified. Our "Assessment - Service Link" option will allow you to identify and add services to the resident's plan of care while you are performing the assessment. The process allows you to:
Link one or more services to any assessment evaluation option
Select the service(s) you wish to schedule for the individual
Enter specific information about the service (Days, time, provider, task details, etc.)
Every evaluation option will NOT need to be linked to a service
An evaluation option can be linked to one or more services
ResiDex can be configured so changes to a resident service plan will not be allowed until a corresponding assessment item has been updated for that resident. This has the effect of ensuring your residents' service plans are always consistent with their assessments.
Assessing and minimizing risk of falling is an important nursing activity and a common quality management concern. ResiDex offers a fall risk tool developed by the Missouri Alliance for Health Care (the MAHC 10) that offers several advantages:
It is a tested and validated tool
It is integrated into data already entered into ResiDex (diagnoses, medications, fall incidents, assessment items, etc.)
It is updated with each assessment or clinical review
It can easily be updated and printed as a subset assessment
