CCPS 2.0 Updates

CCPS Fall/Winter 2019 Planning Cycle is underway. 

At the beginning of the year,  in preparation of  the Fall/Winter 2019 clinical placement rotation period,  CCPS training for newly hired coordinators was offered, with 18 coordinators from schools and 2 coordinators from clinical agencies trained. 

The next CCPS training will be held prior to the next placement cycle in late August or early September. Exact dates will be communicated this summer. 

Health Impact  and the Foundation of California Community Colleges  ( FCCC)  are continuing to work together to improve the Centralized Clinical Placement System tool. 

New features in CCPS  developed by the Foundation of California Community Colleges(FCCC) are now available.
  1. CCPS Alerts - Users will receive automated placement cycle reminders when it is time for providers to update availability, schools to submit placement requests and providers to review and respond to placement requests.
  2. Schools have more flexibility when entering dates for placement requests. If a school's term is outside of the usual semester dates, the system will not limit the date range for their requests.
  3. Providers can now "activate / deactivate" a location to assist in maintaining a listing of active locations. If a location is deactivated, by default it will not appear in the locations listing.
  4. Providers can edit and add information on the Affiliation Agreement page. This includes placement types, expiration date, and provider contact information.
  5. Preceptor Requests - if a student name is included in a placement request, the student name will appear on the Placement Calendar report.
Coming soon!

Key features include:
  1. Providers list standard and site-specific requirements
  2. Schools list standard and site-specific requirements
  3. Schools bulk upload student information
  4. Schools assign students to approved placement requests
  5. Schools view requirements for each placement and attest to student compliance

  7. System generates reminders when a student is out of compliance
