woman reviewing software on computerAt MatrixCare, we’re dedicated to innovation, and to providing our clients with an ever-improving experience. And to better accomplish both of those goals, we continuously gather feedback to understand what changes to pursue. In our usual spirit of full transparency, then, we’re offering this preview of our newest LPC platform enhancements and updates for 2022.

As always, these platform enhancements reflect direct feedback from our valued clients. We know that heeding that feedback is essential to your success and ours, and we’ve designed these features accordingly, offering better usability and UI, simpler workflows, faster onboarding for reduced training costs, and other benefits.

“Empathy with the user is the core of product development at MatrixCare and is the conduit to a great user experience,” as Kedar Kadam, Director of User Experience at MatrixCare, explains.

“Our designers make a deliberate effort to connect with users to understand their needs and to observe their subconscious behavior while engaging with their environment and our systems. That helps us design solutions that users can interact with instinctively,” he adds.

“We have a mature design system that helps us design software that is consistent, accessible, and adjusts smoothly to all device sizes. It gives users the flexibility to use a device of their choice. That increases our user’s work efficiency and creates moments of delight, which is why our users often have an intangible emotional connection to MatrixCare.”

With that in mind, here’s a quick look at what’s being rolled out in our latest LPC platform modernization enhancements, and how it’s different from before.

Dashboards, profiles and menus

Dashboards and menus will have an all-new look and feel, designed to improve ease of use when securely searching profiles for important info. The resident banner at the top will now follow the user throughout the solution. There’s also a new option to collapse or hide the left-hand panel, giving you a larger screen and an expanded view of the fields you’re looking at.

“Don’t worry — all of the content you already know and rely upon isn’t moving, but will still be in the system in those same locations,” as Tina Doerr, our new MatrixCare LPC Product Manager, described the updates. “But now, everything will be easier to see, as well as being better organized and easier to follow and understand.”

Contacts

The new MatrixCare LPC platform enhancements also include improved and streamlined viewing and managing of contacts. That means better organization and categorization, as well as the ability to view each entry in greater detail. Resident type and contact type are also easier to identify, as are telephone numbers and emergency contacts.

Users still have the same option to expand and collapse as before, to easily reveal features such as insurance identifiers. Medical preferences are still listed in the same spot, too, and so are referring physicians, hospitals, pharmacies, ambulance preferences, and so on. But now, new data can be added with the click of a button.

Care plans

The entry program and landing page layout for resident care plans are also being updated. With new approaches to categories and problem resolution, goal adding, form letter management and more, a series of enhancements will promote ease of use and navigation, and better facilitate getting the right data in the right spot.

Information can be sorted in a cascading system with individual and grouped cards, similar to the updated resident profiles. Beyond the care plan entry screen, a good deal of other supplementary screens has also been updated, such as restorative documentation codes.

In addition, printing now works through a regular browser — a big change that we know will be welcome among many of those who have provided us with the feedback to make these LPC platform enhancements!

Point-of-care

One of the central goals of the ongoing MatrixCare LPC platform modernization is the standardization of point-of-care, and the latest updates represent a big step in that direction. With these updates, the management of documentation will be more streamlined, offering standard items for specific activities of daily living (ADLs).

Users will still have the opportunity to input information related to care plan items that are different than the point-of-care, and those care plan items will still be able to be accessed through this new point-of-care. For now, a new series of standardized items can make the recording of that input faster, easier and better organized than before.

“We hear you,” as Tina sums it up, “and we hope that these latest platform enhancements show that we’re listening!”
