If you are connected to the internet, Careficient automatically confirms that you have the most current version of Offline Forms. If you do not have the most current version (and you are connected to the Internet), Careficient automatically downloads it. When you initially sign in to Offline Forms, the Service List displays. The Service List displays the patients scheduled and assigned to you.
You can use the Create New option when you have orders but the service does not appear on your schedule. Creating a new service note is the same if the patient is not on the Service List.
It is strongly suggested that you refrain from using the Create New option, or at least reserve its use for urgent situations. If you use this option and orders do not exist, the agency cannot process the service.
