Reposting Known Issue:

Main Software Version Update 6747 dated 10/08/2020.

Clinical Software Version Update 2877 dated 09/23/2020 is now available.

There is a known issue when running the software via Chrome internet browser that is causing your screens/fonts to look blurry and distorted.  This appears to be an issue with the “zoom” settings within Chrome and/or your  computer’s “display” settings.

If this is happening to you, please check the following settings:

  1. Click on Customize and Control Google Chrome (3 dots in upper right corner of the screen)
  2. The “Zoom” setting needs to be at 100%
  3. You may need to log out and back into the software for this to reset

After this, please make sure your computer’s display settings are set for 100%

  1. To access your computer’s display settings right click on the desktop and go to the “Display Setting”
  2. Check within the “Scale and Layout” section
  3. Make sure this setting is at 100% (Recommended)
  4. You may need to log out and back into the software for this to reset.  Some computers may require a reboot.

Your agency’s IT Department may be able to assist you with this if needed.

You may also try running the software on a different internet browser –ex.  Microsoft Edge or Firefox to see if this helps.

If you are still experiencing issues, please contact Support at Allegheny Software for assistance.

New Listing labeled “Most Recent Therapy Assessment” available within Main Software Version 6718.

This listing will pull the date of the last therapy assessment and the number of days it has been since it was completed, to assist agencies in determining when the 30 day therapy reassessment is due. The listing will pull this information for each therapy assigned to the patient.

A new feature has been added to the Patient and Employee Attachments.  Users have the ability to assign the attached documents to a “Folder” and view the documents within the Folder assigned.

Add the attachments to either the Patient or Employee as normal.

Once Attachment is added:

There are designated folders available within both the Patient and Employee Attachments.

This feature is not available when you are attaching an item to an individual “Activity”

A new PECOS File is available for download as of 08/17/2020

Cloud Users:  If you are experiencing an issue with the software “freezing” within the Main Software with the main screen transposed over the Activities Grid, this is a known issue that Allegheny Software Programmers are working on.

A work around for this issue is to click on the “HHC 3000″ icon in the lower right corner of the page (see image below).

This will “un-freeze” your screen and allow you to continue working without closing out the software.  This seems to be an issue within the Activities Grid when exiting a document and prior to the Approval screen appearing.

Please contact Allegheny Software for any questions.

Texas Health & Human Services released Emergency Rules related to COVID – 19 for LTCR Providers on July 1st, 2020. A Home & Community Support Services Agencies (HCSSA) must ensure its staff are screened at the beginning of each workday per emergency rule §558.408 (Emergency Rule for HCSSA Response to COVID-19) Staff are employees, contractors, and volunteers. Staff include attendants, home health aides, hospice aides, health care professionals, and providers of hospice core and non-core services. Staff who do not pass the screen in §558.408 must not remain in the agency for make home visits. An HCSSA must implement the documentation requirements described in this alert by July 22, 2020.

A HCSSA must also ensure a client and the client’s household members are screened before a home visit. They must document that each screening occurred. Based on the Screening, the HCSSA provides services to the client with the protections described in the emergency rule.

Allegheny Software Publishers have added an enhancement within the software to allow for documentation of the COVID-19 screening for both Patients & Employees.

User will select the COVID -19 screenings button on the main screen.
User will then enter the date the screening was performed by entering the ‘Screening Date’, then will also enter the ‘Type of Screening.’ Within the Type of Screening, the user will select either Employee COVID-19 or Patient COVID-19. Once the ‘Type of Screening’ is selected, the user will select the ‘Load’ button. The User will then select the ‘Load All Active’ to get all of their active patient/employees. If the user wants to add a single employee/patient, they would select the ‘+’ button and select the patient/employee from a drop-down. The patient/employee will then display within the grid on the left-hand side of the screen. When the patient/employee is highlighted within that grid, they can perform and document on the COVID-19 screening. The User would then change the status to the appropriate response and select the ‘Approve’ Button.

The User has the ability to print the individual screening out, the ability to print a log of all screenings for a certain patient/employee, or to print a daily log/all patients/employees at one time.

A ‘+’ button was added beside the Attachments Button. This allows the user to add an attachment without having to open up the Attachments folder.
