Pretty exciting stuff!!!
Isn’t great that your and your agency are using an industry leader? If you are not what are you waiting on? Give us a call and see what all the excitement is about.
I sent a note to check in on an agency that went live with Therap on September first. Allison Cary at Snug Harbor Home Health has been an awesome driving force to get Therap started at her agency. This is what she had to say about her first few days transitioning from paper to Therap. This response made me smile:
“We had 5 houses start on 9/1 and I did not receive a single call. I called homes on the 2nd just to see if they were ok. We now have 11 homes going and so far so good and not a single password reset.”
It is only the 4th of the month and things are moving along at light speed at this wonderful new agency in Indiana! We look forward to hearing more success stories of the transition from paper to Therap! Thanks for sharing this information Allison!
What a great agency! St. Coletta of Wisconsin is located in Jefferson, Wisconsin. They started with Therap Services just recently and are already doing wonderful things! One example of this is their family weekend that occurred last weekend. Bob Schmidt, the lead for implementing Therap at St. Coletta, put a great Therap overview together to inform families about what Therap is and how it is going to benefit their loved ones. Here is a photo of what Bob put together:
I can’t wait to see the other creative things this agency and all of our agencies will do to include family members.
I had the pleasure to attend the NAQ conference in Reno this week at the Grand Sierra Resort. I was able to exhibit and speak during a session about Electronic Health Records and the Affordable Care Act. I also had the pleasure of talking to many of our Therap customers from around the country and hear the wonderful things they had to say about Therap. We have some awesome agencies out there doing some really awesome things in Therap. It was a great time Theraping in Reno!
Welcome to Arrow Consultation Services, based out of Carmel, Indiana. They went live yesterday with Therap! We are excited to have Elizabeth and her team on board to experience, firsthand, the benefits of an electronic documentation and communication system. This is also a huge benefit for the agency, as they are located in different parts of the state, so all of their data can be managed remotely. It is an exciting day for these folks. I look forward to hearing more from Arrow and other agencies that are reaping the benefits of Therap! Great job!!!

If you haven’t taken some time yet to go through and look at all of the new elements coming out in our summer release I highly encourage you to do so. It is as simply as clicking on the link here or off the website…http://support.therapservices.net/display/support/Release+Notes+for+Therap+2013.2.
The release has some really nice features for those looking to have the new ISP more organized, or if you are looking for mobile apps in Therap. The new features provide some great functionality in this area that has been developed and is going to be available in the new release. Stay on top of all the ways you can capture data and improve the lives of the individuals you support.
So the message I received this morning in my email was that a Training Management Supervisor was literally in tears over seeing the features that are available in the TMS (Training Management System). I was then asked by the Director of the agency if it was Therap’s intent to bring people to tears with our software? My response, absolutely if the tears are tears of joy!
It is always great to hear how Therap is making a real difference in the lives of the people who are out in the field making a difference everyday. This person upon seeing how her job was going to be made easier by utilizing TMS in Therap was obviously pretty excited.
I hear a lot of suggestions of how to make the system better, and that is great keep em coming. I hear a lot of ways of how we should improve things, and we are. But it is also good to hear every once in a while how Therap is a pretty awesome solution right now and making a difference in the lives of individual all across the Midwest and beyond.
We are getting ready for our summer release in the several weeks ahead. I have seen some of the things that are coming and they are pretty exciting. Be sure and stay tuned into what coming you may end up with a tear or two coming to your eyes. Tears of Joy that is!
Hope all is well in the Therap Midwest, plan now to be apart of the NATIONAL CONVENTION in KC January 2014!
