Unit Visit Tracking System
The Unit Visit Tracking System (UVTS) is a tool for those in commissioner service to record and review information about their contact with the units they serve. With regular and consistent use, this system can provide each commissioner an "at-a-glance" overview of recent visits and a history of communications with each unit, which can help to provide timely and consistent support.
The Journey to Excellence system has a criteria for unit visits recorded in the Unit Visit Tracking System (UVTS). Commissioners need to record their unit visits in the UVTS in order for this criteria to be met. Most important to Commissioner Service is making quality visits to units on a regular basis. Entering unit health and unit issues in UVTS and talking about them with the Commissioner team will ensure quality service to units. The recording will give historical information about a unit and how a problem was solved. This will also be helpful when there is a change of personnel calling on the unit.
