Providers use the app to clock in, clock out and view hours.

OR PTC DCI Landline
You can use the consumer’s landline phone to clock in and out. You don't need internet access or smart phone or device for this option.
If your consumer’s landline phone number is on file with the local office, you are all set to use this option.
Check out the
Landline Tip Sheet for instructions on how to use the landline option.
OR PTC DCI Fob
The fob is another way to capture time when a smart phone/device or landline is not available
The fob is a small device that is kept in the consumer's home. The provider pushes a button on the fob to display a unique code at the start and end of their shift. The provider writes down the fob codes with date and time of clock in and clock out on a fob timesheet. The provider must enter the fob codes in the DCI Web Portal by the end of the pay period.
To request a fob: Talk to the consumer’s Case Manager.
To download fob timesheets:
Go to the Provider section of the Learning Materials page.
To take a course on entering fob time: Go to
Adding a Fob Entry to the OR PTC DCI Web Portal.
