Key Features of Alley Data
Cross Platform and Cloud Based
Our cloud-based developmental disability software is built to work across multiple types of platforms and working environments, including iOS, Android and the web. It can be used on almost all devices, with iOS and Android functionality specifically designed for field employees. Being cloud-based eliminates many of the costs associated with hardware, offers around-the-clock accessibility and provides the convenience of working from anywhere. Best of all, the added security is a welcome benefit when dealing with sensitive medical information.
HIPAA, also known as the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, sets the standard for sensitive patient data protection, which is a top priority when working with developmental disability management software. Alley Data is HIPAA-compliant, so you can be sure all the necessary security measures are in place for dealing with protected health information.
Designed For Field Use
Alley Data is custom designed to be easily used when not in an office. This is a necessary feature for direct support professionals who work remotely with patients in their home environment, with full offline support. If a staff member should lose their connection to the internet, they can still work offline and sync the data once an internet connection has been restored. The convenience of 24/7 access to the data cannot be overstated, especially for caregivers who need up-to-the-minute patient information.
Electronic Health Records (EHR) Management
Alley Data also acts as developmental disability electronic health records software by facilitating caregiver access to the electronic health records of the individuals you serve. The records are electronically stored in a digital format that can be shared across various healthcare settings. This is critical for storing patient data over a period of time, which in turn helps ensure accuracy, eliminate redundancy and reduce the risk of lost paperwork.
Direct Data Entry (DDE) Charting
When using Alley Data's developmental disability practice software, caregivers and other employees can enter a patient's chart data directly into the application. This eliminates the need to create a paper copy, saving time and resources and helping to ensure accuracy.
Multidisciplinary Employee Scheduling
Your employees provide different services and types of care for the patients you serve. Multidisciplinary employee scheduling makes it possible to schedule the various types of care based on what each caregiver provides.
Direct support professionals and other employees can use Alley Data to properly record their work hours. This function not only improves accuracy, but it also acts as an added convenience for field workers who are constantly on the go.
The developmental disability case management software makes it possible to establish a profile for every patient that includes an up-to-date list of his or her medications and scheduled treatments. The system automatically sends a push notification to alert the direct support professional before it's time to administer the medications or act on other tasks.
With Alley Data, direct support professionals in the field can easily record everything necessary, including HPC Documentation, Behavior Support Data, Medication Administration, Incident Reporting, Appointments, and all other charting necessary for providing care. GPS capabilities make it possible to also create a record of patient-caregiver travel, including mileage to various destinations such as stores, restaurants and medical appointments.
To aid with financial management, the direct support professional can use Alley Data to photograph everything from receipts, food stamps and gift cards to healthcare records from various medical visits. If an incident occurs that results in patient injury, such as a fall, the caregiver can take a photo to document the event and then add it to the patient's profile.
Alley Data comes with personalized training for administrators. Most of the training will take place in person or via videoconferencing, depending on user location and preference.
Customized Behavioral Plans
A customized profile can be created for each patient that includes input from family members and healthcare providers. It will also include a behavioral plan that caregivers can access when needed, along with some of the patient's likes and preferences. This feature is especially helpful during DSP shift changes or when a new caregiver comes on board.
Complete Vitals and Assessments
With Alley Data, direct support professionals have the patient's comprehensive medical history at their fingertips. This is particularly useful in emergency situations when healthcare professionals need quick access to the information for comparison purposes.
Utilizing Alley Data’s touch screen capability, e-signatures can be captured and stored within the system and used to sign documents as needed, including MARs, HPC documentation, incident reports, and more. If necessary, notifications of signed reports can be transmitted immediately via text or email.
In App Messaging
Alley Data's email-style method of communication allows for internal communication between direct support professionals and administrators to provide an easier, more effective method of conveying information.
Easily filter data and create reports in PDF format. Administrators can generate reports for virutally anything Alley Data can do. Created reports can be sent electronically or printed depending on your needs.
