Families to view IHC MySupport information
IDEA Services and Choices NZ are trialling an extension of the IHC MySupport database to allow the people we support and their families to view their information. It’s important for the people we support to have a good team around them. A big part of this is involving family members at the right time. At present, information such as support plans and goals can only be viewed by staff.
We have asked 40–50 people to take part – a mix of people we support and their family members. The 12-week trial started at the end of January. When it ends we will ask people if they found it useful and whether it’s something they want to continue with. We will let you know the outcome.
