    PROGRAM INSTRUCTIONS
      • MIECHV & FSSD dual funding: For state-funded programs (ECI, Shared Visions, HOPES-HFI) that also receive MIECHV funding: programs must keep these funding streams separate and enter families into the module through which they are funded (MIECHV or FSSD).
      • New primary caregiver: When the primary caregiver of a family changes, the former primary caregiver should be given a discharge date, and a new primary caregiver profile should be created with an enrollment date equaling the date of the change primary caregiver. The new primary caregiver should then be associated with the existing children. The new primary caregiver will require all enrollment assessments and reports (i.e. LSP, AOD, DOVE, EPDS, Enrollment Report).
      • Re-enrollment: If a family exits then re-enrolls, they should be re-enrolled as a new family since otherwise it would appear as though they were being served during their break in services. Since the program will now have two records of the same family, the current one should be marked "active" in the profile status and the past profile should be marked "inactive" so that the FSW can identify the new profile when searching.
      • Program Transfers: If a family moves to a new county and is enrolled in a new program, they should be discharged from their current program and entered as a new family into the new program (as their DAISEY data is meant to reflect their changes while in the program). Additionally, if a record "transferred," the first program would lose that family's data. With signed client consent, programs may share assessments for transferred participants via printing and sending hard copies.
        • If a family moves to a new county but is still enrolled in the same program, nothing should change (since profile information is a snapshot of the family at enrollment).
      • Data Access: Statewide access: KU Iowa's DAISEY team (on an as-needed basis), IDPH state staff (Julie Tchoumkeu, Janet Horras, and Anne P.) The following individuals will have either read-only access or report-only access to their programs (decision pending):
        • ECI-funded programs: Shanell Wagler, Jeff Anderson
        • Shared Visions-funded programs: Amy Stegeman, Amanda Winslow
        • HOPES-funded programs: PJ West
        • Access within an organization: whoever the organization/program sets up. Individual DAISEY users can now be tied to a program, so security will be tighter for organizations with more than one program in DAISEY.
      • Blended Family Structure in DAISEY: When parents are divorced/separated and both parents are involved in home visiting services, treat this as one family in DAISEY. To do this, choose one parent as the primary caregiver to enter into DAISEY; the other parent can optionally be entered under a caregiver profile and marked as the secondary caregiver. If other children are involved in home visiting who are not tied to both parents, these families can be split into two families. An example of this would be if the father and mother have a child, separate, and the father has a child with another women. If both children and all three parents are involved in your program’s home visiting services, these families should be recorded as two families (with each child entered only once even if they are seen with both families).
       

      User Management

      User Management Template

      DAISEY account information should not be shared between multiple staff members.  Each staff performing data entry or running reports will need their own DAISEY account.
