Facilities can be configured to represent venues such as offices, classrooms, and clinics where Services take place.
Facilities have many features in common with Clients:
- The ability to restrict scheduling to Employees with specific Skills & Qualifications.
- Forms functionality.
- Visit Reports.
- Coordination of Care Team, Availability/Unavailability, Notifications, Contacts, etc.
- Services functionality.
Once Facilities are created, there are two scheduling possibilities:
- Client Visits can be assigned to the Facility (for example, in the case of clinic Visits).
- Employee Visits can be assigned at the Facility without a Client (for example, in the case of on-call shifts or office hours).
Create/Edit a Facility
To begin scheduling Visits involving a Facility, you must first create and configure a Facility to start scheduling Visits.
Skills & Qualifications
You can also set Skills & Qualifications for the Facility. When you want to add a Facility to a Client's Service with required Skills, the Facilities will automatically be filtered by those that have those Skills.
This is useful in cases where specialized equipment is required at a Facility to carry out a specific kind of service, for example, a CAT scan.
