  3. Confirm the client needs an assessment. If you just created a new client, obviously they’ll need an assessment. However, if the person was already a client in the system, you’ll want to check to see if they already are connected to services. Look at the Client Programs to see if the client is already open to a program that can share an assessment with your program. If the client does need an assessment, enroll them in your program by clicking the New icon. If the client is already receiving services, contact their current provider.

If you have documents that were completed on paper that need to be scanned in to SmartCare, see How do I scan a document into the client’s record?
