Guides for May 2019 Software Upgrade available

We are upgrading the interRAI Software System on:

  • 24 May 2019 for the Taranaki host site (Central)
  • 31 May 2019 for the Canterbury host site (Northern and Southern)

The upgrade will enable users to reset their passwords without having to call host sites and include changes to the software system.

All assessments need to be complete and checked in

Make sure all assessments are complete and checked in before your host site is upgraded. To do this you can run the Incomplete MDS/Assessments Report and, if applicable, the Checked-Out Client Record Report.
Visit the Upgrade page on the interRAI website for a full set of guides

Are you using the current National Standards?

The National Standards changed significantly in 2018. Make sure you are using the latest ones. They look like this:

Aged care: Enrolled Nurses cannot sign off on assessments

 Enrolled Nurses may conduct interRAI LTCF assessments but then require oversight by a Registered Nurse to complete them. It is New Zealand Nursing Council policy that Enrolled Nurses must not assume overall responsibility for completing assessments.
