    7. Big Picture - Overview Charting Our Course Joane Amick Early ACCESS Regional Coordinator We have built an Early ACCESS interagency system and will continue our collaboration. One of the benefits of the web based IFSP is that it makes it easy for everyone to access the IFSP and make their own entries. This will be the expectation for our staff.

    11. Lets Get Started At the Dock: Structure of the Web IFSP System Julie Tschirgi Co-web IFSP Administrator Sue Schulz Early ACCESS Administrative Liaison Co-web IFSP Administrator ===========================Next slide notes======================== There are a lot of similarities to the the web IEP. Julie and I are going to give you some basics that you need to keep in mind. You will locate the web IFSP information at the same URL as you use for the web IEP. Much like the web IEP, the IFSP program is written to handle the common 85-90% of situations that youll run into when writing an IFSP - and like the web IEP there will be times when we need to develop a work around because the system isnt equipped to do what we want it to. We would suggest that you go to the IowaIDEA.org website and update your subscription for announcements to include the announcements about the web IFSP. Were going to give you time to do this in a few minutes so please dont hop on your computers right now. ===========================Next slide notes======================== There are a lot of similarities to the the web IEP.

    12. Similarities to Web IEP Same URL - https://iep.aeaims.org/IDEA_Apps/ Application built for commonalities - 85-90% IowaIDEA.org Update Subscription Quick Reference Guide Passwords Bug Reports Time Out Typing not an activity Log Out Procedures When you select the IFSP tab at the IowaIDEA site you can follow the links to several resources including a Quick Reference Guide in pdf format that you might want to consider downloading to your desktop. This document will also be linked on our agencys Early ACCESS web page. (DEMONSTRATE) With respect to logging on - you will use the same password that you have for the web IEP system. Like the web IEP system, if you run into glitches in the system like the ones we have for the last week or so, you can submit a bug report. You might want to start with your OA, but if a bug report is needed it must come from your computer which will pull additional encoded info with the message. Another similar feature is the 2 hour time out. Like the web IEP typing on the web IFSP is not an activity so you need to SAVE OFTEN. Unlike the web IEP however, moving from screen to screen does not save your work. Finally we want to mention the log out procedures. It is important, like for the web IEP, that you log out of a page rather than simply quitting your browser. Not logging out can result in the page being locked and others will not be able to access the child for data entry.When you select the IFSP tab at the IowaIDEA site you can follow the links to several resources including a Quick Reference Guide in pdf format that you might want to consider downloading to your desktop.

    13. Browsers & Settings Browsers & Platforms Mac OS 10.4 - Firefox 3 Windows 2000, XP, Vista - IE7 or IE8, Firefox 3 Browser Setup (pp 13-19; Ref Guide) Cache, Popups, Print backgrounds Printing - similar features including incomplete data report printing only the pages you need Another similarity are the browsers and settings you can use for the web IFSP. These include Firefox 3 for those of us on Macs, and Internet Explorer 7 or 8 as well as Firefox for Windows 2000, XP, or Vista users. For Mac users you will need a MAC OS 10.4 or newer. We are aware that some of our community partners do not yet have these more current versions for their platforms and well be working on solutions for this. All AEA staff, however, should be be able to access the webIFSP without a problem. Information on set up can be found on pages 13-19 of the Quick Reference Guide that you can download from the IowaIDEA.org website. Good news is that if youve been using the webIEP youre probably set to go. If you have trouble with popups, banks or printing, please see your OA for assistance. We arent going to take time during this session to make sure everyones good to go. We will demonstrate a feature for many of the pages that lets you know how many items still need to be completed. However, if you are having difficulty figuring out what needs to be finished, you can select the same Print Incom-plete Data Report as a feature like the web IFSP. You can also select indivi-dual or multiple pages for printing. Some of the forms can only be accessed from the print command and well be explaining more about that as we go. 13Another similarity are the browsers and settings you can use for the web IFSP.

    14. Login Screen Use the same username and password you use for the Web IEP. (Community Partners - Will be given usernames at the training.)Use the same username and password you use for the Web IEP. (Community Partners - Will be given usernames at the training.)

    15. Main Menu Youve been able to set a default, but since web IEP was what you were using we didnt really cover this in web IEP training. Now we have the web IFSP option. If you primarily work in Early ACCESS forms, you can choose the IFSP default. This results in the web IFSP being the first choice in your applications and the tab which youll want to click on in order to access your child lists.

    17. Caseload Currently, your Caseload Page/Child List will look much like this one - without the red box - until you have a new referral or add children. Service Coordinator will see Caseload, Child List and Intake. You will not see Coordination as a menu choice unless you have add child permissions. Service Provider will see child list (for the children for whom they have been identified as the provider) The level of permissions is similar to the web IEP. You see those features that you need to. If you feel that you do not have a permission that is necessary for your work, please contact your office assistant.

    18. Intake Entered by Office Assistances at AEA, Lead by VNA - Meghan Wolfe, CHSC - Rae Miller The Office Assistants assigned to IMS will enter the intake into the web IFSP system and assign the service coordinator according to our current office procedures. Lead referrals intakes are entered by Meghan Wolfe, VNA. She will assign the service coordinator. AEA office assistance will enter all other intakes and assign service coordinator. If service coordinator is going to be from CHSC, she will indicate the agency and then Rae Miller will assign the service coordinator. In our region, that would be Janis Breitsprecher. Intake/referral information will be auto-filled to the Family Information Page. It is important to note that if the intake page requires editing, you must do so using the information initially entered for birthdate and name. It may be corrected once you get to the referral info page. For example, if a child was previously entered with the incorrect spelling of name select edit intake and type the same incorrect spelling. Then, change the information to the correct spelling on the referral page. Please note, however, that any changes to names and birthdates needs to be reported to the IMS data entry personnel. They will follow up to ensure that all student records are merged. You may also see that in some cases, that someone you team with does not have Edit Intake privileges. If this is the case and you note a birthdate or name that is in error, contact your IMS data entry person.

    19. Reason for Referral While the Office Assistant enters the Intake form, there may be times when you want to know the reason for the referral. The reason for referral will only be displayed on the Referral Intake page. To view the Intake page (reason for referral), you can go to the print menu, select Print Preview and the Intake form. Youll learn more about printing options as we go along, but it is important to note that your access to some forms is only through the Print process. That process will be described later in the ppt.While the Office Assistant enters the Intake form, there may be times when you want to know the reason for the referral.

    20. IMS Data Entry Staff Assign Service Coordinator Office Assistants will assign a Service Coordinator according to our current office procedures on this screen - one they have access to in their permissions but that you most likely wont see. From this screen a child can also be transferred to a new SC. Contact the office assistant in writing and provide a reason for transferring a child to another Service Coordinator if thats needed. (email is sufficient)Office Assistants will assign a Service Coordinator according to our current office procedures on this screen - one they have access to in their permissions but that you most likely wont see.

(email is sufficient)

    21. Youve got mail Once a Service Coordinator has been assigned, the system will send the new SC an email. It may be a good practice to check your caseload daily to see if you have a new child. The New at the top of your caseload list, lets the SC know that she has a new referral (As I stated a moment ago the system will also generate an email to let you know this). It is important that we do NOT abandon current and common sense practices like communicating with team members (e.g. when you are going to identify them as a potential provider). Therefore a copy of the intake form will still be placed in the service coordinators box. Note: The new cases are marked with an asterisk by the last name.

    22. Add Child Completed by Office Assistants The Add Child feature is used when entering existing cases (these children are currently in IMS). Right now we have given permission only to the OAs to add a child. When a child is added, the name and birth date must be accurate. This is another reminder, to ask the parent how childs name is spelled on birth certificate to ensure accuracy when you are doing initials. We are assuming the names and birthdates we currently have in IMS are accurate. If you are wanting to work on a periodic or annual and the child has not yet been added to the system, visit with your IMS data entry person. Again, we cant say this enough - be sure the IMS data entry person has the correct name and birthdate even when requesting that they add a student. We will also ask IMS folks to double check rather than simply add from the info you have provided. The Add Child feature is used when entering existing cases (these children are currently in IMS).

    23. Key Points of Caseload View Service Coordinators menu includes view case load Service Providers menu includes child list Service Coordinator providing a service will see both lists New indicates a new referral An email will also accompany the referral alert Dont abandon current and common sense practices around communicating with team mates Service coordinators will see a menu that includes view case load. Once we get to full implementation (probably a date between July and October) rosters from IMS will no longer be printed. Instead, you will keep track of your children through the view caseload option. For service providers only like our SLPs and community partners, their menu has a child list but no view case load. For those of you who do both roles youll see both the case load and the child list. When a new referral is entered by the IMS data entry the childs name will appear on your caseload list as New An email is also sent - although at the current time wed like to make sure that the referral process is working so a copy of the intake form will continue to be given to the SC. The Service Coordinator will want to maintain their current system of notifying team members that a referral has come in and their participation is needed.

    24. Tips for Navigating the IFSP Lets talk a little about navigation - Buttons (located at the top & bottom of each screen) include things like Save - Spell Check - and Print Bank B: Can be used to store information that is commonly used on IFSPs. This information is linked to the person entering the bank. Lookup field L: A non-editable field that contains signatory partner information or other types of lists such as the school districts name or county listing. Theres a special Agency Lookup L found on Intake/Referral, Provider & Exchange of Information. If an agency is not listed that you need contact your Web IFSP Administrator with the contact information and the agency will be added to the list. In some fields there is a blank option in the drop down menu, if you need to empty a field. The example on this slide is the Parent Field - you can see that the first line is blank in the pop up menu. This is similar to your calendar program that you use here at the AEA.

    25. Navigating Tips (cont.) Unlike the Web IEP, and much like the calendar program we all use, shifting from one screen to the next DOES NOT SAVE. Therefore, each time you start to enter info on a particular screen and you have not yet saved it - the Save button will turn red. It is imperative that you SAVE OFTEN especially on pages like the Evaluation document. In addition, you will access your PRINT commands from various form pages. Please note the Print button.Unlike the Web IEP, and much like the calendar program we all use, shifting from one screen to the next DOES NOT SAVE.

    26. Setting Sail Raising the Sails First Steps on Forms We have built an Early ACCESS interagency system and will continue our collaboration with all service providers throughout our region. One of the benefits of the web based IFSP is that it makes it easy for everyone to access the IFSP and make their own entries. The following section of information will be the expectation for our staff. We are going to walk through a couple of the forms and are aware that not everyone has a new intake to work on. So, we ask that you watch what we are demonstrating and listen to what we are sharing - with no direct work on your own computers. Then well provide some time for data entry and ask that you gather as groups around the folks who do have a new intake they can work on.

    27. Completing Family Information Alright - most of what weve shared with you so far has been background information to assist you with getting started. Now were going to move into content that youll need in order to write a web based IFSP. Begin by selecting - simply click on on the childs name - from the caseload/child list to access the family information page. The Family Tab will most likely be the one highlighted when this page opens. On the web the family information does not look like the templates youre familiar with (see tabs for family info, providers, insurance, etc.) but it will print exactly like youre used to seeing.This is true of most of the pages youll work on in the web IFSP. The web IFSP has been designed for data fields so that if forms themselves change, we dont have to rewrite the entire program for the change. The data fields will most likely still remain data fields. Much of the Family info page will be automatically transferred from the intake form if one has been done.

    28. Key points about the family information page Much of the family information page will be filled automatically if a New Intake form is being done. If the intake page is edited/updated it will not carry forward to the family information page. If Add Child process is used, family info will need to be entered. If family information needs to be updated, do this on the Family Info page rather than on the intake form. Once youve started the process, making changes on the referral/intake form will not result in updates to other pages like the family info page. For these first IFSPs you are entering - if the child is added through the Add Child process rather than the Intake process - you will need to add the Family Information. The web IFSP does not pull from IMS like the web IEP does. The reason for this is that with the re-write of IMS, more and more info will go directly from the web IFSP and in the future from the web IEP, into IMS. OAs will focus more on data accuracy to ensure that the system pulls in the correct info rather than entering the data themselves. In the meantime, you will have additional info to fill in. Let your OA know if you need assistance with this. If family information needs to be updated, do this on the Family Info page rather than on the intake form.

Let your OA know if you need assistance with this.

    29. Family Information Page There are three tabs that youll complete as part of the family information page. Some info may already be filled in. For children already in IMS you wont be able to fill in the Intake/Referral Date. Other information that appears on the tab may be filled out or changed and include: ethnicity (which wont print out on the page), district of residence and attending district, county, language in the home and the demographic info for adults. To add sibling information youll select the add button on the bottom of the Family page. Hit add for as many siblings as needed. Note to self: The Family Information tab does not have the number indicators on Insurance and Provider to indicate information is missing, as other tabs do.There are three tabs that youll complete as part of the family information page.

    30. Provider and Insurance Tabs These are providers involved in the childs/familys lives, like physicians, DHS workers, etc. Your familiar with this section as you currently complete it in your electronic forms. Guidance is forthcoming in the statewide procedures manual on how to have the conversation with families about insurance and Medicaid. Hold down Control and then click on the type of insurance to choose more than type. Medicaid number will fill in automatically.

    31. View of Completed Family Info Page Note X This deletes form from Print command only! When you think youve completed the Family Information tabs, you can select Print - And the Print Menu comes up.

    32. Obtaining Forms There are several forms that are only available via the Print command such as the consents. Use the print button I commented on a few slides back to obtain forms. In some cases (e.g. forms that require no inputs like consent for evaluation, consent for services, Medicaid authorization these are found under additional forms) using the print button is the only way to obtain the forms. This is also where you can do a print preview to view the Intake Page view Reason for Referral. The forms are divided into IFSP main forms and IFSP additional forms. For each page/form, you can select 1) a completed page/form, indicated as form or 2) a blank page/form indicated as blank or 3) both blank and completed indicated as both. If a page/form is empty or not required, the only choice is blank There are several forms that are only available via the Print command such as the consents.

    33. Print - Form Key Points On the Print Forms screen - Also - Note also the print preview, incomplete data report, and IMS summary on this feature. The program will require you to think some in terms of when you print forms and how the info is integrated. For example, you wont want to print the Medicaid form until youve completed the services page so that the info you put in on services pulls into the Medicaid form and is complete. Again - we recommend that Print Preview become your friend and that you use it to double check if ALL info has been entered to complete the form.

Choose the type of meeting, initial, periodic, etc. This may not be an option with the first IFSP you enter - as when the Add child process was done - we needed to identify whether or not it was an annual or periodic. Once you are using the system regularly you may need to select the type. A popup menu will appear like the one in the next slide. Think it through so you enter the correct response. Once you enter a meeting type, it requires deleting the plan and entering a new one to fix. The Meeting Tab is similar to our previous Meeting Details page.

This will give them access to the childs IFSP. The childs name will appear on the service providers list. This does not mean the service provider will end up providing IFSP services. That will be determined when evaluations are completed and the IFSP services needed are identified. At that time the service coordinator will delete any service providers not providing IFSP services from the service page. Well review this process again later in the presentation.
