PATH QCMRs and Data Export

Previous Topic  Next Topic 

The AWARDS PATH QCMRs and Data Export feature, located in the Fiscal module, enables PATH Services programs in New Jersey to generate two Quarterly Contract Monitoring Reports (QCMRs) for the purposes of monitoring the performance of PATH grantees:

  Level of Service Report - Focuses on how many services were provided to each client.

  Client Movement Report - Shows how many clients were admitted, discharged, or transferred during the reporting period.

In addition, this AWARDS feature includes a QCMR Data File component, which combines data from the two reports into a single Excel file.
