For treatments such as at nursing clinic services, rehabilitation classes, and other forms of group treatment that may take place at a Long-term Care Home, Retirement Home, or a Clinic, Agencies are able to monitor their workforce and the care provided in these facilities by using AlayaCare's Facility Scheduling feature.
Step 1: Add the Facility to AlayaCare
By hovering over the 'Patients' tab on the left, Users with permission will be able to view the 'Facility' tab. Click this tab to create a new Facility in AlayaCare by populating demographic information.
When creating and/or editing Facility information, Users have the ability to indicate capacity thresholds, in order to provide more visibility into scheduling and resource requirements. For Agencies scheduling both Employees and Clients to Facility visits, make sure that 'Include patient schedule' field is checked.
NOTE: If the 'Include patient schedule' is not checked, Users will not be able to view the 'Patient Scheduling' tab seen at the top of the screen in the image below.
Once all general information is added, click Save.
Step 2: Configure and Set-up Facility Services
To begin coordinating client care, Users have the ability to add important information to a Facility, such as the Care Team, Care Provider Notes, Do Not Send (blocking employees from a Facility), Key Contacts.
Next, continue with Service Set-up but adding the Services that Employees will be scheduled to for that Facility:
The facility is now created and ready for scheduling!
