All Homecare Workers and Personal Care Attendants enter their time electronically in a system called OR PTC DCI.

  • You are responsible for entering your time correctly in order to be paid.
  • If you can't clock in or out during your shift, you will need to add a historical time entry. You can use either the Web Portal or the landline option.
  • If you need to enter mileage or correct a time entry, you need to use the Web Portal.

Getting started

There are three different ways you can enter your time in OR PTC DCI: 

  • A mobile app that works on your smartphone.
  • A landline phone.
  • A device called a fob.

OR PTC DCI landline

You can use the consumer’s landline phone to clock in and out. You don't need internet access, a smartphone 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 to learn how to use the landline option.


The fob is another way to capture time when a smartphone/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 the 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 OR PTC DCI Learning materials page.

To take a course on entering fob time: Go to Adding a Fob Entry to the OR PTC DCI Web Portal.
