Consumer (Client) Profile Overview

How to Create a Consumer Profile

Consumers will only be added to OR PTC DCI once they have been approved for in-home services and worked with their Case Manager to hire an approved provider.

  • The consumer and provider profiles will be created by the PTC Support Team. The PTC Support Team will receive a daily report of new consumer and provider combinations and from these reports, they will be able to create all necessary profiles, funding accounts, and service accounts.
  • The authorization process is initiated by the Voucher Specialist using the APD 546 to enter the authorization in DHR to create the voucher. Authorization information will be sent in real time from DHR to OR PTC DCI once the voucher is created in DHR. If the authorization fails to go to OR PTC DCI, it goes to a queue for the PTC Support Team to fix those failures. The queue will indicate the consumer and/or provider associated to the authorization are not in OR PTC DCI, this will prompt the PTC Support Team to create all the necessary profiles, funding accounts, and service accounts related to that specific authorization. Once all those pieces are added, the PTC Support Team will have the ability to resend the authorization to OR PTC DCI.
  • If more than two full business days have passed since the Voucher Specialist created the voucher in DHR and the consumer has not been added to OR PTC DCI, Local Office Staff can request the profile and associated account information be setup by the PTC Support Team by submitting a request form to Support@odhsoha.oregon.gov, Local Office Staff will narrate in Oregon Access the request was sent. Once the profile and associated account information has been created, the PTC Support Team will narrate and respond to the requestor.
  • Please include the voucher number and voucher created date in your request. These request forms can be found on the PTC website by clicking into the AAA/APD Staff option at the top left: oregon.gov From there, scroll to the bottom and click “New User Forms.”
  • See business process 3.1 Add Consumer Information for more details.

    Note

    Before submitting a request, check the system to make sure a profile does not already exist for that consumer.

How to Create and Update a Staff User Profile

Staff profiles are created and maintained by the PTC Support Team.

  • To request new staff Access, a manager will need to complete the Staff Profile maintenance request form and submit it to Support@odhsoha.oregon.gov. The new user will receive an email from support@dcisoftware.com to complete account setup once their account has been created.
  • If the request is to modify or close an account, a manager will complete the Staff Profile maintenance request form and submit it to Support@odhsoha.oregon.gov. Once the request has been processed the PTC Support Team will email the requestor to let them know the actions have been taken.
  • The Staff Profile Maintenance Form can be found on oregon.gov under AAA/APD Staff by clicking New User Forms.

    It is the Manager’s responsibility to:

    • Request access to OR PTC DCI from the PTC Support Team for all new staff members who require access.
    • Notify the PTC Support Team as soon as a staff member no longer needs access, so the PTC Support Team can deactivate their account.

    See business process 5.1 State Managing PTC User Accounts for more information.

Unlocking Profiles

A User’s Profile will be locked if they enter their password incorrectly 5 times. If an account is locked, the User will receive an email notification stating their account was locked.

External Users can have their account unlocked the following ways:

  • A locked profile will automatically unlock after 24 hours. If they need to use the system right away, the Local Office may be able to assist.
  • The User can contact the Local Office and a State User with the Supervisor Role over the individual’s Cost Center can unlock the account.
  • If their account status is disabled/terminated, email the PTC Support Team at Support@odhsoha.oregon.gov asking them to unlock with the information listed on the “Information Needed for PTC Support Requests” sheet on the PTC website (found in the Materials and Resources section on the right of the AAA/APD Staff page to unlock.

  2. Click Unlock

If the individual does not know their PIN and/or Password these can also be reset in the Authentication Information in the next sections.

Authentication Details & Status

Profile Authentication Status

A User's authentication status determines if a user can access OR PTC DCI. For each profile type, the following Authentication Statuses exist:

  • Active: The User can log-in and access OR PTC DCI. New profiles default to a status of active.
  • Disabled: The User cannot log into OR PTC DCI. This status can only be changed by a PTC Support staff member.
  • Locked: The User cannot log into OR PTC DCI. This status is set by the system when a User is locked out due to entering their password incorrectly 5 times. A State User with the appropriate role and/or permission can unlock the profile.

A State User with the Supervisor Role or the PTC Support Team can update an individual’s Authentication Status. If the status of an individual is updated, it needs to be updated in Oregon Access for consumers or a note added in OR PTC DCI for providers and consumer employer representatives.

The next section will show resetting the Authentication information in the event a user has forgotten their login information.

Note

Resetting Authentication Information will remove the PIN, meaning they must go into OR PTC DCI and set a new one upon logging in.
