Preserving the integrity of the NDIS and safeguarding against misuse and fraud is a collective responsibility shared by all individuals and entities involved in the NDIS ecosystem. The following points below are outlined by the NDIS as the responsibilities of all Providers within the NDIS.
At CareMaster, we are dedicated to proactively addressing these compliance areas by leveraging innovative technology solutions. Our goal is to empower our clients in fulfilling their responsibilities and surpassing the service standards expected by both their participants and the NDIS community as a whole. By embracing smarter technology, we strive to enhance their capability to deliver exceptional services that exceed expectations.
The NDIS explicitly defines the obligations of Providers in upholding the integrity of the Scheme. These obligations encompass six key areas of compliance, which include:
CareMaster offers robust assistance in fulfilling these requirements through various features. The software incorporates a price guide facility, allowing for easy management and adjustment of the NDIS price list. Moreover, the smart roster includes a range of tools that seamlessly handle aspects like travel measurement, calculation, and payment. These tools seamlessly integrate with CareMaster’s payment process, incorporating multiple checks and balances. For instance, alerts are triggered if a support service falls outside the funding scope of a Participant, ensuring clarity during invoicing and prompting attention prior to submission. In a holistic approach, CareMaster extends additional support to Providers through a dedicated help desk and onboarding specialists assigned to each business. Furthermore, a wealth of training resources is available to enhance transparency and accuracy in payments.
CareMaster has developed a robust and purpose-built financial process that meticulously tracks each stage of various financial activities, including scheduling, timesheets, and payroll for Support Workers. Additionally, Participant budgets can be easily accessed and viewed through the Participant app if activated, and budget reporting is available upon request. Furthermore, CareMaster ensures transparency for all stakeholders throughout the financial journey by establishing clear and non-misleading processes. This transparency aims to prevent conflicts of interest and adequately inform each stakeholder, whether through proactive notifications or reactive engagement with the software’s features.
CareMaster possesses advanced capabilities for tracking, managing, and updating data in order to ensure operational transparency across various features within CareMaster. This exchange and management of information play a crucial role in maintaining transparency not only in the collection and management of data but also in financial obligations such as pricing, quoting, and invoicing. Notably, participants of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) can have visibility into their budget if the CareMaster user has enabled this feature in their Participant app, accessible to them or their guardians.
Moreover, this transparency extends to Support Workers, who can easily document essential aspects of support attendance, including start and finish times, Participant signoff, and more. Additionally, participants have the ability to view their scheduled supports both past and future, provide signoff, and understand how these supports align with their goals. This comprehensive transparency encompasses not only support details but also includes dedicated document management and personal profile information. Furthermore, participants can proactively request additional supports, further enhancing their engagement with the CareMaster Software.
CareMaster has meticulously integrated the NDIA standards, utilising information and data within the software, to enhance support for the ethical utilisation and management of the NDIS system.
CareMaster’s NDIS software is designed to align with the compliance requirements specified on the NDIS website. With a strong commitment to ensuring adherence to these standards, CareMaster has taken extensive measures to provide comprehensive information that demonstrates how our NDIS software effectively supports NDIS Providers in meeting and maintaining compliance with the regulations set forth by the NDIS.
