Each campus providing cares to residents will need to divide up each day's workload into manageable blocks that can be assigned to either to a team, or an individual caregiver. In RTasks, we call these teams/ individuals "Providers."
Campuses can have their own configuration for Providers - a small setting may just have AM, PM, NOC providers and no others. A larger facility may break down providers by location, and have multiple providers operating at the same time (Assisted Living AM 1, Assisted Living AM 2, Memory Care AM 1, etc). These Providers are configured for each individual location to meet that location's needs.
Providers can be configured uniquely for each location using RTasks. Each Provider is assigned a Type (so we can limit users to only see Provider options appropriate for their role), a Primary community (to make it easier to assign cares to the appropriate provider) and a Shift (so cares can only be assigned to providers working at the appropriate time).
When a 'Provider' is no longer needed, it can be retired.
Each campus list of providers must include an 'Unassigned' Provider. Do not inactivate this entry! This unassigned provider is used:
