The following new features and functionality have been released in CentralReach:

  • Introducing Single Sign On (SSO), a more efficient way to sign into CentralReach, CR Mobile, and the Client Portal. The following new features and updates have been released with SSO:
    • All users, providers/employees, clients, and generics will experience the same login experience and email validation process. Users need to have access to the “Primary Email” listed in their CentralReach account and will validate that email address prior to signing in.
      • Network Providers are not affected by SSO, but will need to go through the “Forgot Password / First Time User” workflow in the login page to set a password in SSO and access their accounts.
      • Once the email address has been validated, that email is registered to the users’ SSO account. If a user needs to change their email address, they will need to go through the validation process again.
        • When changing their email address, users will be notified if it is registered to another account.
      • Users can now convert contacts that do not have access to CentralReach, by selecting “Convert to User” in the Basics section of their Profile. Please note, contacts need to have a primary email and date of birth in order to be converted to a user.
      • The “Login & Access” section can only be viewed by the account owner. However, users can view login activity in the Contacts module, by adding that column to the grid. Login & Access now also directs users to their SSO settings, to manage:
        • Basic Information: includes the email address, display name, profile image, time zone, and locale.
          • Users can modify their email addresses in this section.
          • Please note, only users with the following permissions can edit contacts’ first and last names:
            • (Contacts > Manage Own Basic Info): modify their own first and last names.
            • (Contacts > Manage Employees): modify other users’ first and last names.
            • Client-Admin level: modify clients’ first and last names.
        • Security: contains the current account password and a “Password” field for users to change their passwords. Users can enable Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) if their organization does not require it.
        • The organization account has the following additional SSO settings:
          • Company Information: includes the organization name, time zone, locale, and date format.
          • Security Settings: password expiration and session timeout can be adjusted for all users. Organizations can also enable and disable MFA.
            • Password expiration: 15 days, 30 days, 45 days, 60 days, 90 days, or 180 days.
            • Session timeout: 15 minutes, 30 minutes, 45 minutes, 60 minutes, or 120 minutes.
          • Manage Users: search for users that have validated their email address and view their profile settings. Organizations can enable and disable MFA for individual users.
      • Please note, editing SSO settings will not sync with users’ CentralReach accounts. Therefore, editing the profile image and display name will only update SSO credentials and will not change in the CentralReach profile.
    • When users forgets their CentralReach password and are locked out, they can now reset the account password, instead of contacting an account administrator.
    • The “Birth Date” and “Primary Email” fields are now automatically added to contact forms. If the “Send Welcome Email” checkbox is selected, the Birth Date and Primary Email fields are required when creating a new contact with access to CentralReach.
    • SSO has also been added to the Client Portal. Clients will experience the same login process and can enable MFA. If more than one user, such as a parent/guardian, is signing into the Client Portal, both users should have access to the email address listed in the client’s Profile.
    • Single Sign On (SSO) provides the option for organizations and individual users to enable Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) to CentralReach accounts. CentralReach’s current Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) feature is no longer available. MFA adds an extra layer of security by requiring an authenticator application or access to the validated email address when logging in. Upon logging in, users will be required to input a security code sent via an authenticator application or email.
      • Users will experience the MFA login process every time they sign out and then into their CentralReach or CR Mobile account.

Colorado Overtime Settings

The Human Resources module now support Colorado overtime rules which allow you to generate the correct overtime rates in the Standard Payroll Extract Report as per the State overtime laws. To update the overtime calculations, the organization account will need to configure Colorado overtime in Payroll Settings. Once done, when running payroll for any given period, overtime will be calculated as one-and-a-half times the employee’s regular hourly rate, and will automatically select the calculation that generates the greatest payment of wages when working in excess of (1) forty hours per workweek, (2) twelve hours per workday or (3) twelve consecutive hours, regardless of whether the work period overlaps into the second day.

“Copay” Fields are Now Updated to “Patient Responsibility”

The term “Copay” was used across the CentralReach Billing module to refer to the client total out of pocket payment due for the services rendered and included insurance copayment, coinsurance, and deductibles. However, since the term “Copay” only refers to the insurance copayment amount as defined in an insurance policy, we have updated all invoice and billing screens “Copay” fields to “PR AMT” or “Patient Responsibility” to better describe that this amount represents the client’s financial responsibility and total payment due.

Permission to Download Files

Organization’s accounts can turn off a new permission (Files > Download) that will disable a users’ ability to download documents from the Files Module .  All users currently have the permission enabled. If the permission is disabled, the user will only be able to preview files within CentralReach and there won’t be an option to download in the file details page nor the document preview page.

Configure Organization’s Payors

Organization’s accounts can set up and define the approved insurance plans (payors) the organization accepts payments from. This update prevents employees from assigning an incorrect or non-accepted payor to a client’s profile and consequently avoids claims, authorizations and billing errors. Once the organization account sets up the approved list of payors, those payors will be the only ones available to be assigned to a client’s payor profile.

Add Existing Billing Entries to a Claim

Approved Time Off Updates

New updates have been made to the Human Resources Module to help employees and HR managers streamline time off workflows. The organization’s account is now able to configure new settings so approved time can be automatically added to employees’ calendars with the corresponding time off service code. This prevents employees from having to manually add time off to their calendars, so they’re not booked for work during their scheduled time off, and will no longer require HR managers or employees to make manual service code updates when converting timesheets, as the proper service codes will be included in their timesheets.

Additionally, a new option has been added to the Human Resources Module drop-down, titled Employees Time Off Requests, to quickly access and view the employees’ time off requests in the time off grid.

Knowledge base articles & user guides:

Contact Forms Automations

Contact forms have an additional functionality so employees added through a contact form are automatically added to permission groups and service codes. This helps onboard employees in CentralReach faster, by providing them access to all required modules and configuring their service code settings as soon as they are added in CentralReach via a contact form.

Payroll Export Report

A new field titled Service – State has been added to the Standard Payroll Extract report to complete the address information of where the service was rendered.
