IMA Desktop Tour Service Management
Crucial to the automation of a human services agency is the integration of the system within the workflow of the office. The IMA Desktop is designed to fit seamlessly into the existing workflow of the agency's front and back offices.
Tools for service management include:
- Client referral, transfer and discharge
- Centralized scheduling
- Check-in and cash receipt
- Managed care authorizations
- Group rosters
- Electronic rolodex
- Correspondence indexing
- Document imaging
- Word processing
The Centralized Scheduler presents a macro view of the agency schedule and resources and allows access to all calendars of agency personnel for appointment coordination. Client appointments, groups, staff meetings and the like can be scheduled preventing double-booking and lapses.
The Front Desk Check-in allows for client check-in for appointments and the ability to receive cash, co-payments, etc. A check-in slip or receipt can be printed and a record of the transaction is created. Walk-in appointments can also be accepted from this window.
These tools serve a dual purpose. They provide a simple and useful method to perform repetitive, time-consuming and burdensome office tasks. Additionally, they capture important information on a real-time basis, as soon as it is received. This provides accurate and timely data, with a minimal amount of data entry.
These features allow the IMA Desktop to automate most of the processes of day-to-day office work which are critical to the overall clinical, financial and managerial health of every human services agency.
