 ‘Sharing’ in Central Reach with other providers and agencies works ONLY if:

  • OR the provider or agency is listed in your 'Provider Network'

  • AND the agency/provider has the correct Region/Team labels

 

  

How To Communicate Adding New Providers or Changes with Provider Region/Team

 

  • If a new provider joins your agency, send the following request to the ACT CR Data Manager:  “Please connect new provider Brittany Spears (CR ID#) with the ACT account.  She is in R7T1 (insert correct Region/Team label here).”

  • If a provider changes regions/teams, send an email to the ACT CR Data Manager with the new information.  She will ensure label changes are made in the ACT account.  Once the Data Manager makes the changes, you should be able to see the new labels in your account the next day.

  • If you need assistance with connections and sharing, please contact the ACT Central Reach Data Manager jennifer@azcooperativetherapies.org
