Subject: Client Plan Tiers Issue – MUST READ!!
This memo is sent on behalf of Michalene Hiltsley, Quality Improvement Supervisor
Good afternoon all!
As some people are aware there has been a hiccup in the Anasazi Client Plans recently and we have been working with Anasazi on correcting the issue. The largest issue seems to be corrected at this time however we need your continued assistance to report and track if the issue does continue. In a nutshell here is what users are seeing occur:
In reported cases, staff was adding a planning tier to the Client Plan and the system changed the tier type. For example, a Strength was selected and when staff proceeded to the next step correctly the system converted the selected Strength to an Area of Need, an Objective, or an Intervention. When this does occur staff will receive a prompt asking for additional information that is not required (such as frequency).
If you see that this has occurred within a Plan you are working on – please stop, save the Plan (not Final Approve), and contact the Help Desk. By doing so and providing specific information you are assisting us with correcting the issue promptly so that you are able to continue on with your clinical work as quickly as possible.
Some things to keep in mind if this occurs:
· Progress notes can be written on a non-final approved Client Plan as long as there is at least one Need, Goal, Objective and Intervention. This means you should be able to continue to document progress notes in this situation. You will receive a message reminding you that the Plan is not final approved and ask if you want to continue – it is ok to select “Yes”. The service may be indicated as an “unplanned service” – in this situation that is acceptable.
· Timelines are still in effect – if this issue does occur and you are unable to final approve the Plan within timelines, make sure to complete a paper Plan with all signatures within timelines and keep it in the hybrid chart. As soon as the item is fixed you will need to enter and complete the Plan in Anasazi with the dates documented on the paper Plan. (Reminder – paper plans are only to be used when the system is down and must be entered in to Anasazi as soon as the system comes back up).
· Contact the Help Desk immediately to determine if this is truly the same issue or if something different is occurring. If you do not report it we cannot fix it.
Thank you all for your patience in managing this issue and for assisting us with continued reporting and tracking of issues as they arise!
