Product News

MatrixCare 2018 R5 Coming Soon

The next MatrixCare release for Senior Living users is planned for early 2019. For organizations that have multiple communities, we are working to improve how evaluation templates are created and updated. With this release, you will be able to assign evaluation templates across multiple communities. Previously, evaluation templates had to be added and managed for each individual community.

    • Your organization will save time since a single evaluation template can be used at multiple communities.
    • All communities that use the same evaluation template can be updated at one time.
    • An existing evaluation template can be easily assigned to new communities.

arrow

Value: Your organization can save time and drive more consistency by managing corporate level evaluations that can be used by one or all of your communities.

arrow

To Prepare: In order to maximize the benefit of using evaluation templates across multiple communities, ensure:

  • Evaluation names across all communities are unique. If you have two of the same evaluation names in different communities, they must be changed. You cannot use the same evaluation name more than once.
  • If linking forms to your evaluations, ensure the names of the form that should be triggered from that evaluation is the same across all communities. The evaluation can only be linked to one form for a specific situation.

arrowWorkflow Change: When setting up or managing an evaluation template, it can be done across all of your organization’s communities.
