Resource Connections Reports

  • Resource Connections” in the Service Reports columns replaces “Resource Referrals”
  • There are 3 reports now available to provide you with Resource Connection and Information Shared data
    • “Resource Connections” – This report will display all connections made within the date range specified. The connections displayed will be for those families that are assigned to the home visitor. So you may see connections entered by a different home visitor for a family that has been reassigned to a new home visitor
    • “Resource Information Shared” – This report will display the items where “I” is selected on each PVR in the date range.
    • “Guardians with no Resource Connection” – This report will list all guardians that have received private contacts in the date range but do not have any recorded Resource Connections in the date range.
  • These 3 reports are available to download in CSV format which can opened in Excel.

Re-assigning Families and Deactivating Home Visitors

  • Improvements have been made to deactivating home visitors and reassigning families.
  • You can now choose to deactivate a home visitor that has a current caseload. In this situation, you will be given the option to reassign the entire caseload to an existing home visitor or enter a new home visitor into the system.
  • Here’s a tutorial posted to the Knowledgebase: https://help.data-keeper.com/knowledgebase.php?article=31

Licensing Agreement Finalized with PAT

Visit Tracker Web and Parents As Teachers have finalized a licensing agreement which allows our Users to build PAT Records in Visit Tracker.

This license will ensure that you can use Visit Tracker as your chosen database to demonstrate how your program follows the essential requirements of the PAT model and the Quality Assurance process.

As changes are made to Essential Requirements and model fidelity standards, Visit Tracker will work with Parents As Teachers National to ensure that we understand what those changes are and incorporate them into Visit Tracker Web.

We look forward to continue serving you.
