What version of the WeCare System am I using?

What Version of WeCare am I using?

Overview

The WeCare System is composed of a number of parts;

  • WeCare Database
    The central store of all information
  • WeCare Data Exchange (WDX)
    A .NET HTML/XML web service which allows a variety of authorized HTML/XML aware programs to connect to the WeCare Database
  • WeCare Care and Accreditation Manager
    The program used by Aged Care Facilities to Assess, Plan and Evaluate resident care needs and report various information to facility management and a variety of government agencies.
    This program connects directly to the WeCare Database
  • WeCare Point of Care
    The program used by Aged Care Facilities to deliver and document resident care needs.
    This program uses WDX to connect, when necessary, to the WeCare Database.

 

As of WeCare 2009 each of these parts can be upgraded and changed to allow greater flexibility in responding to a variety of Facility and Government agency needs and requests.

 

Every part of the WeCare System has a version number. This should not be confused with the overall WeCare System name.

 

WeCare System Name

Each year in September, the WeCare System Name changes to reflect the upcoming year. This allows customers to have a general idea on which version of the WeCare System they are using. For example in September 2009, the system name is changed to WeCare 2010.

 

WeCare Version Number

Each part of the WeCare System has a four (4) part version number. If a change to the WeCare System requires a change in more than one part of the WeCare System, this results in a Major or Minor change. If a change to only one part of the WeCare System is required, this results in a Small or Build change.

 

  • Major
    Major changes require a complete upgrade of the WeCare System and all parts of the WeCare System change their version number.
  • Minor
    Minor changes require an upgrade of those parts of the WeCare System which are affected and all affected parts of the WeCare System change their version number.
  • Small
    Small changes require an upgrade of only that part of the WeCare System which is affected. These may be small or large changes to that part of the WeCare System, but are limited to only that part.
  • Build
    Build changes require an upgrade of only that part of the WeCare System which is affected. Build changes are usually internal changes to reflect, for example a beta version and a release version.

 

WeCare Database

The WeCare Database will only report it’s version to the WeCare Care and Accreditation Manager. You cannot get the version number directly from the WeCare Database.

WeCare Data Exchange (WDX)

Open a web browser and enter the following address:

http://<IPaddress>:<port>/WDX2/WDX2.aspx?

Where;

  • <IPaddress> is the IP Address of the WDX Server
  • <port> is the port the WeCare POC connects to the WDX Server

Note: WDX must be in CAPITALS

The return message will be something like this;

__ERR__Missing Device Id v4.1.0 FB 100830 __END__


Where;

  • “v4.1.0” indicates the version of WDX
  • “FB” indicates WDX is connecting to a Firebird database
  • “100830” indicates the build date of WDX.
