Updated: Dec 10, 2021


SANDIS 7.8 Updates

DDS POS Expenditure Report – DDS created this report which is frequently used for SDP cases. After program modifications, SANDIS has completed the restoration of the email feature.

Intake Tracking Report – Excel report option added.

Manager POS Approval Queue – Additional column called “# of Days” was added to the Manager’s list of POS requests waiting for approval. The # of Days column displays the difference between today’s date and the POS Start Date.

Medi-Cal # Upload Report – Program revision and consolidated reports. SANDIS has adjusted the reports so they generate a printout even when the default is set to “Email as PDF.” This will go to the printer outque assigned to the person running the job. With features of the new spool file clean-up these reports will be purged regularly.

National Core Indicator (NCI) Contacts – A new field was added in SANDIS to identify the Primary Family Contact for NCI Surveys. When the NCI letters are sent to families, this feature will make it easy for DDS to identify the appropriate person and pull the information from all regional centers.

Spool File Cleanup – SANDIS has created a new program to purge print jobs routinely without having to do it manually. The program uses a table to indicate how many print jobs to keep, and then eliminates the rest.

Vendor Resource File Document Imaging – In addition to the new link for imaged vendor records, SANDIS has created an automated program to add the needed Storage Comment on all active vendor records.

Vendor Interface Reports – Revised and consolidated Vendor Bridge reports which include: Vendors being Added, Vendors being Changed, Service Codes for New Vendors and Service Codes for Updated Vendors. The reports can be sent to a printer or an outque. The Vendor Bridge Interface can be run manually or automated to run on the job scheduler at any regional center.

SANDIS 7.7 Updates

Client Immunization Tracking – This new feature is found under the Client Health Information section. It allows tracking of Client Immunizations. In collaboration with DDS, this new area will allow the collection of COVID Vaccination data to be transmitted to DDS each month. This new program also allows regional centers to gather information on other client vaccinations as well. Reports will be available for tracking purposes.

Reports to PDF – To better accommodate staff working remotely throughout the state, SANDIS has modified the following reports to offer a PDF option: Notes (T19, Progress & Resources), POS Roster, CDER Overdue and Intake Tracking.

Resources Document Imaging – The Resources Program has been updated to include the Document Imaging link on each page. Previously, the link only resided on the “Vendor Search by Name” screen.

SANDIS 7.6 Updates

Character Count – New feature that will count the number of characters in text or comment fields. The program will either show a count down or provide a warning when you approach the end of character spaces allowed in the field. For example, this will be helpful when writing a very long Title 19 ID Note.

Client Contacts – A new tab called “Contacts” was added to allow staff to capture the client’s Primary, Emergency and Legal contact information. SANDIS worked with DDS on this solution to clearly identify these important contacts, consistent at all regional centers. DDS is planning to provide a Statewide Training on requirements and expectations for capturing Client Contact information. A Technical Announcement from DDS and meeting invitation from SANDIS is forthcoming.

Client Medical – Each text area in the client’s Medical section, has been increased and character counts added.

Data Integrity – Data checks have been added to ensure proper email address using an “@” symbol, and phone numbers now require an area code.

Referrals – Each comment text area in the Referrals program has been increased.

Self Determination Program – The Self Determination Program (SDP) status is now displayed on the client’s Primary screen. This will assist staff to easily identify those clients currently enrolled in SDP.

T19 Time Stamp – The time a Title 19 was originally written is now included in the display.
