Puerto Rico joins the Therap Community

I am very excited no announce another exciting development for Therap. We have been selected by Puerto Rico Department of Health, Division of Services for People with Intellectual Disabilities (DSPDI) to implement Therap across the Commonwealth. While we are still in the very, early stages of the project, we already have met a great group of people who seem to be as excited to get moving with Therap as we are to help them in achieving their goals of better services and supports for Puerto Ricans with intellectual disabilities. It should also help many of our other users as the team here have agreed to work with us to enhance our Spanish translations within the application and our training and [...]

Staff Ratio Tracking :: New in Therap 2016.0

This is one of those modules that you are either going to think is the greatest thing since T-Logs or you are going to wonder what the point is.  Which camp you fall into will most likely depend completely on which state you work in.  Folks in places like Maine, Ohio, and Indiana should really like this. The basic goal is to allow you to easily record in real time what the ratios of staff to individuals are in a given program on any day. This is an agency wide module, so it is not filtered by caseload (hence it showing on the agency tab). You start off by making a template.  A template is just a list of the [...]

Locking and Deactivating Users in Therap 2016.0

We are making a slight change to the way that you temporarily keep users out of the system in our upcoming release.  Don't forget that you can try out Therap 2016.0 at https://beta.TherapServices.net There are two user statuses that do not allow them to log in, Locked and Inactive. (actually Pending doesn't either but that doesn't really count in this conversation! Locked has been what happened when you entered an incorrect password too many times or did not change your password within the required time.  This will still be the case, but we are now offering the opportunity to set a user's status to Locked.  This is what you would do if you wanted to temporarily stop them logging in, [...]

Have you tried the new Individual Home on your phone?

The new individual home which you can find by logging into our Beta release of Therap 2016.0 at https://beta.TherapServices.net is the first module showing our new User Interface (UI) which we will be gradually rolling out across the whole application. The UI is designed to be "responsive".  This means that it will configure itself to whatever size screen you are working on, even your phone! If you remember what Individual Home looks like on your regular screen, it is something like this:   On your phone though it looks like this:  or this   or this   or even this  What might be even cooler is that is the information is too big for that box, you can just slide it [...]

Therap for iOS :: Coming in Therap 2016.0

There are many questions that I get asked repeatedly, pretty high on the list is "When are we getting an iOS App".  Well, the answer is now "With Therap 2016.0".  While it won't be as fully featured as the Android one yet, what we have done is establish an iOS team to work specifically on this.  What you will see first is the foundation which the other modules will be added to over the course of 2016. Starting with the new login screen, you'll notice it is very similar to the Android App.  It does use exactly the same data, but there are places where the look and feel differs a little as we conform to device specific standards. As [...]

Coming soon in Therap 2016.0 :: Therap for Android updates

Along with our new web application, we will also be releasing a new mobile application (or two). Let's start with Therap for Android: We've tidied up the login page a bit: And look! There's something new on the Dashboard, let's take a look at T-Logs for Android: Tapping on the T-Log link will bring you to a list of unread T-Logs.  You can look at them all or filter by Notification Level. Choose the one you want to read and there it is: Tap the icon at the top right to mark it as read and you can be on your way: If you want to write you own T-Log, just click the pen icon on the list page you [...]

Coming Soon in 2016.0 :: New Individual Home

I had hoped to get to some posts about our next release right after our National Conference, but was unfortunately smitten by some dreaded lurgy.  So, now I am (more or less) back on my feet, let's get started. The first thing that you will notice when you go to https://beta.TherapServices.net is our new Login Page.  This now gives us an opportunity to give you information without forcing you to click through too many splash pages. You can click on the screenshots to see them full size.   Once you log in (remembering that this is beta and not production) you should start by heading over to Individual Home.  You'll see that it has been completely reworked.  Our goal is [...]

Looking back on another amazing Therap National Conference

As I am making my way home from the Pacific north-west, it's quite remarkable to look back and reflect on the progress we've made over the years and the exciting things that we talked about this week. Firstly I want to thank everyone who made the conference such a resounding success, especially my amazing colleagues and our customers who traveled from all over the country to join in some great discussions. There were a number of  new things that we touched on, showed off, or talked about at the conference that I will get into in much more detail over the coming weeks as we get closer to our 2016.0 release: Pharmacy Interface While this won't be in the 2016.0 [...]

Welcome to our National Conference in the Pacific Northwest

We are all ready to go here in Vancouver, Washington (across the river from Portland, Oregon).  Not even the snow storm to the east could stop us. We always have internal meetings the day before.  Each year our team just gets bigger and better! If you are lucky enough to be coming to join us and are flying to Portland (PDX), get your bag, walk out the door and look for this bus at the second island, just to the right. We have an exciting programme put together for you and can't wait for you to get here! :: Justin ::

Monday at the Scottish Parliament in Edinburgh, Scotland

As you may (or may not!) have noticed, I've been slacking a bit recently on the blogging front. Hopefully, that is about to change.  We have our National Conference and an exciting release just around the corner, so I am going to have a lot to talk about! Right now though I am in Edinburgh, Scotland in the cold and dark and rain visiting with family (and seeing Hearts win 6-0!). Today my brother Nick and I took a tour around the (relatively new) Scottish Parliament building which was rather cool (and like Nebraska is unicameral). More soon when I get back to the States. :: Justin ::

Therap at the NASDDDS Annual Conference in Washington, DC

Peter and I are at the National Association of State Directors of Developmental Disabilities Services (NASDDDS) conference in Washington, DC (well actually Alexandria, Virginia if you want to be really accurate). This conference is a great opportunity to mix with and list to many of the leaders from across the country in services for people with intellectual disabilities. We're delighted to be involved and are already looking forward to next summer in Kansas City, I hear they even have a baseball team out there! :: Justin::

Happy Days in Metsville

I was introduced to the New York Mets in 1985, my first summer working at the Southampton Fresh Air Home.  The Mets were great with Gooden, Strawberry, et al and all the kids (at least the smart ones) loved them so I hopped on the bandwagon.  With a World Series the next year it seemed like I had made a pretty good choice! The next 30 years though haven't always been as easy and being a Mets fan has become very much like being a Hearts fan.  In fact, even more so over the last couple of years where financial problems have forced a reliance on your talent (which might have been a smarter plan in the first place!) This [...]

Six State Summit in Keystone, South Dakota

I have spent the last few days in Keystone, South Dakota at the Six State Summit.  This is one of my favourite conferences, featuring leaders from the provider communities and states of North Dakota, South Dakota, Wyoming, Colorado, Utah, and Montana. It is an opportunity to gather and learn and share and relax in a more informal atmosphere and one that Therap has had the privilege to support for about ten years. This year was an exceptional conference in many ways.  Great presentations, excellent discussions, and a gorgeous environment. I also learned that Rapid City has its own collection of presidential statues:        And Keystone has a wonderful steam train! https://youtu.be/7LibVXFlvYA :: Justin ::
