Tuesday in St. Louis Missouri

Today is Day One of the 8th Side by Side Technology Conference.

 

 

It’s amazing how each one of these conferences is different with its own personality but equally cool and wonderful.

Jeff as always makes for a great host and after a day of teaching and learning I’m looking forward to seeing something of St Louis.

Much, much more to come over the next two days.

More Exciting Sessions for Therap's National Provider Administrator Conference

I am very excited to announce that the keynote address on Day Two of our conference will be given by Oracle.  We have come across many situations where agencies have tried, with the best intentions, to develop their own system running local databases.  Therap’s top of the line hardware and infrastructure is one of the many things that separates us from any competition that might be out there.  You will now have an opportunity to hear from Oracle about why their software and hardware help to keep your data safe and accessible.  Enjoy…

There are also a number of other outside speakers to make sure you catch up with.  Remember that these folks will be happy to talk to you between sessions as well as at their presentations.  Small group and 1:1 discussions are what our conference is all about.  Be sure to look for folks from:

ANCOR talking about their Performance Excellence program and services for agencies.

Talintel with a remarkable system to make sure that you hire the right staff.

CLO talking about their Homelink monitoring service

CARF talking about quality, measurement, data, and certification

and of course our friends from The College of Direct Support

We have a tremendous group of people coming from all over […]

Come and join us in Minnesota
