EMR REQUIREMENTS FOR CLINICAL STAFF
You must have a PC in order to work with our EMR system. The computer needs to have 4+ GB of RAM and must operate on Windows 7, 8, or 10 only. You "may" use a MAC, however, it is not recommended, since the process is very complicated & you will have to incur costs of approx. $150 to get additional needed software. Effective 10/2/17 we are no longer using PIMSY.
RELATIONSHIP WITH MANAGEMENT
Support from your Supervisor. Your supervisor (Regional Clinical Director) is there to:
-- help you with any problem or issue related to your job
-- discuss cases and give you recommendations on clinical issues
-- encourage and motivate you to maintain your minimum billable-hour requirements
-- help you maintain an accurate caseload
-- encourage you to document notes in a “Medicaid-compliant” way
-- motivate you to become an effective clinician or case manager
-- share feedback, suggestions, and successes, as they know exactly what the aspects of being a field-clinician are like.
PAYMENT, TIMEKEEPING, ETC
W2 Clinical Staff gets paid on a Fee-For-Service Model (FFS) -
Overtime. Overtime is not allowed for Case Management staff. For Clinicians who are Registered Intern or Licensed, you are exempt from overtime requirements/regulations.
Draws/Advances. In order to keep up with federal requirements, you must log-in all worked hours in the ADP system (see # 4 below). On those weeks in which you log-in work hours but you don't have any (or enough) billable notes turned-in, we will pay you a draw (or advance) to cover your Minimum Wage amount. You supervisor can inform you about this procedure at a later time during orientation.
Payment Calendar. Since we operate on a Fee-For-Service basis, you must know that there is a three-week gap, from the end of the work-period, to the direct deposit date. Please plan accordingly. For 99% of clinicians, this does not pose a problem after understanding, that eventually if you do your work, you will get a steady paycheck every two-weeks. Of course, this varies depending on how many cases you have, if your are working PT or FT, etc.
