Explanation and Purpose of Revision Tracking

Revision Tracking within extendedReach is used to keep track of changes made to certain fields within Cases and Homes. Previous values and the effective date of the change are recorded so you can see changes over time. Revision Tracking is used to track changes in rates which are used for Days Care Billing calculations..

Creating a Trackable Revision

From a Case or Home, if you edit the following items (among others), eR will track the revision.

  • Case Name
  • Case Legal Status
  • Case Rate Level
  • Assigned Worker
  • Home Address

Some of these changes may prompt an effective date (when it is important) while others will just stamp the change as effective the day of your change without prompting.

Revision tracking occurs as part of the regular edit/update process. For example:

From “Edit Mode” on the Case Screen, change the rate level of an existing case to a different value and click on “Save”.

This dialogue box will automatically open. NOTE: Your pop-up blocker must be disabled for extendedReach. 

  1. Select an “Effective Date”. Click on the calendar icon to select if you wish.
  2. Check the box “Apply these changes to all siblings”, if needed.
  3. Click on “Continue”.

The revision has now been recorded.
