Community Integration (also known as Community Participation Supports) is scheduled to begin implementation in Pennsylvania in 2017 with roll out to many programs on January 1, 2018. The roll out will continue throughout 2018 to other programs.
Many agencies in Pennsylvania are already ahead of the curve, ready to meet the challenges of 2018 with effective agency time & attendance solutions already deployed or being deployed. But many more agencies are still using paper timesheets or ineffective generic systems whose gaps will be even more obvious under Community Integration. Some of the challenges that can arise due to Community Integration include:
- Electronic documentation will become more important
- Withstanding audits may be more challenging
- Accurate attendance records for clients as well as staff will also be more important
- Streamlined billing procedures will become required
Fortunately, new MITC technologies are providing low-cost ways to meet these new challenges. For more information, contact MITC today.
