We were talking about Facilities Management and came up with some interesting ideas about how you could handle some of the following:
- Fire Safety Checklists
- Safety inspections
- Vehicle inspections
- Vehicle Maintenance
- Maintenance checklists
- Property or Vehicle incidents
- lots of other non-individual-related stuff
The idea (being used by PrimeCare in Connecticut) goes something like this:
- Create a new program called something like “Facilities Management”
- Within the program create an individual for each program (eg 1st Street Group Home, etc)
- Create a bunch of ISP Templates for each of the forms above
- Assign the ISP templates to each of the individuals as ISP Programs
- For each standard (“CL:”) caseload, add the individual as an individual
Now each member of staff can go and fill out the appropriate forms (and T-Logs and GERs) for their program without them being made readily available to state/county case managers and families (unless you want them to). You could also get a report on (for example) vehicle inspections across your agency. Groovy huh?!
On the face of things I think this looks like an absolutely tremendous idea. My major concern is that sometimes when you try to do something a little funky like this where you are engaging in “off label” use of a Therap Application. There can be side effects that you don’t want. So far I haven’t thought of any yet though.
What do you think? I would love so more ideas and discussions on why you would or wouldn’t do something like this.
