It’s APR season! Our goal is to make submitting your APR easy and painless! Here are a few frequently asked questions about the APR. If you have any additional questions about your APR, please feel free to contact us. You can submit a ticket under the Support tab, email email@example.com, or call 1-800-532-7148.
How do I know what families or children are being counted on my APR?
- Anywhere you see a blue number on your APR, you can click the number to see who is counted in that question. Click the number and a pop up will open with the list of Guardians/Children.
Why is the number of families and children so low?
- Check to make sure all of your home visitors are listed as PAT Affiliated. Only those home visitors that are designated as Affiliates will count on your PAT report. Go to the Home Visitor tab and select a home visitor in the dropdown list. Make sure the dropdown option is set to “PAT Affiliate Home Visitor”.
There are children being counted on my APR that have been exited for several years. Why are they being counted?
- Check the Contacts for the Child. When adding a contact, exited children will show on the list. If the home visitor accidentally added an exited child to a contact, that child will count on the APR. Any child with a contact in the date range will be counted. To fix this, pull up the Contact History for the Family and click the “pencil” icon on the right side of the contact. You can unselect the exited child.
There are families that we have been seeing for a long time that are showing up as newly enrolled. Why is this, they are not new?
- Check the status history of the family. We have seen situations where a home visitor may have forgotten to enter some data so they will reactivate the family. Once they have entered the data, they exit the family again. By re-enrolling the family, this will cause the family to look as though they are newly enrolled. Visit Tracker will look at the last enrollment date. The last Exit and Active status can be deleted to take the family to the original exit status. * In the future, when you need to reactivate a family or child, just delete the Active status from the Enrollment History table, instead of exiting again. This will just take the family back to the previous status.
Our Annual Health Review is really low. I know that Home Visitors are checking off that the Health Review has been completed in the screening section.
- The Hearing and Vision are part of the health screening and do need to be completed as well. So for the Health Screening to be counted as completed, the Health, Hearing and Vision section of the screening needs to be marked as completed.
How are Immunizations counted on the APR?
- The immunization field from the Health Record and Screening will auto-populate to the Child Data page (unless the date on the child data page is more recent, then it will leave the most recent date). This will be the date that is used. For the APR, it is specific to children 19-35 months of age at the end of the date range or at the time of exit. So you will also need to look at any children that were exited while in that age range.
