If you manage a facility or office that uses interRAI, it is a good idea to become familiar with what is required of your staff, to ensure you are providing the right support for them and get the most out of using interRAI.
Managers may also benefit from attending a Manager’s Training Course, which provides an excellent programme explaining how the tools work and the data and reporting interRAI is able to generate for informing care planning and improving service delivery. To request manager training fill out the user access form and select Clinician Read Only in the training required section.
When assessors join your facility, we need your approval to grant them Momentum access. Fill out the User Access Form to request this.
It can be completed on a mobile, tablet or computer. A copy of the data submitted, is automatically emailed to the person completing the form, and also to the user’s manager for approval, please ensure you input email addresses accurately. A form is not classed as complete until it has been approved by the manager, this is done by the manager following the instructions in the email that the form has generated.
To complete the form you will need to have the following information ready, as the form can't be saved until complete:
o Your contact details, including personal email address and mobile number (required for the Learning Management System)
o Your workplace details
o Your manager's name, work phone number and work email address
o Registered health professionals: your registration or APC number
o Enrolled Nurses: name and contact details of your clinical supervisor
To deactivate a Momentum user please email the name of the person, the facility and your name to interRAI@tas.health.nz.
How to avoid creating duplicates
The interRAI national software system offers additional modules. The Wound management module is available within the Long Term Care Facilities software.
In New Zealand, as of October 2020, interRAI has been optimised to work on devices with particular minimum specifications.
It is possible to 'Check Out' a resident's interRAI assessment record from the production site (blue screen), that requires internet connection, to a mobile device to enable an interRAI assessment to be completed at the resident's bedside, without an internet connection.
The 'Check Out' application must be pre-loaded to your mobile device. Contact your IT support to discuss this option.
