June Newsletter: Updates and News
NEW UNITE US MESSAGING FEATURE!
Unite Us Chat is a secure, real-time communication tool that you can use to:
- Centralize your communication about cases and referrals with other providers. No more sorting through emails, text messages, and notes on the client’s face sheet.
- Improve referral responsiveness and accountability while coordinating care for clients.
You can chat with another user at your organization or at a partner organization regarding a case or referral, further clarifying information needed about the client’s eligibility, timelines, resource availability, etc. The client’s name and chat topic appear in the message header.
Please remember to only include the minimum amount of information necessary to serve your client.
