Software for Developmental Disability Service Providers
Therap is working with the State of Nebraska implementing state-wide solutions to offer improved and efficient services to individuals with intellectual disabilities in the Cornhusker State.
Incident Management, Individual Budgets and Annual Plans have already been implemented and in 2015, billing for services with be done through Therap. See below for upcoming trainings.
Providers in Nebraska have a wide range of Therap’s modules available to them at no additional cost through Therap’s state contract.

Referrals for Agencies in Nebraska
We have prepared guides to explain Referrals in Therap. The Referral module is used by Oversight Agencies in order to refer an Individual for services to other linked Provider Agencies. At the end of a successful Referral process, the Individual referred is admitted by the linked Provider Agency.
Import individual related information from an Excel sheet into Therap’s Individual Data Form (IDF). The Excel sheet has to be in a specific format. Read the guide linked here to learn how to do this.
More Nebraska specific guides.
If you have any questions or concerns at any stage of this process, please do not hesitate to get in touch with us. We will continue to update the page with more information and training materials as the process moves along.
Therap Services is an online software service that provides secure, HIPAA compliant documentation and communication for developmental disability provider agencies. The suite is made of programs that cover extensively supports provided to individuals as well as programs that help an agency manage employee training and certifications, and also schedules.
Visit our Products page for more information.
Therap also provides extensive support in setting up and handling the transition to electronic documentation, and has lots of great online tools for training staff to use Therap.
With the Individual Budgeting module, the Service Coordinators in the State of Nebraska can define the total Individual Budget Amount (IBA) and create Budget specifying the applicable Individual Budget Amount within a specific Budget period. Service Coordinators can then create Service Authorizations and send them to Linked Provider agencies.
Linked Provider users can acknowledge the Service Authorizations sent by the Service Coordinators. If the Service Authorization is incorrect, they may directly contact the Service Coordinators via SComm.
For further details, refer to the following guides:
Send Service Authorizations to a Linked Provider – For Service Coordinators
Acknowledge a Service Authorization – For Linked Provider Users
There are also recordings of recent webinars you could watch:
Adding Service Authorizations
The Health Tracking module in Therap allows users to efficiently track different categories of health data including Vital Signs, Blood Glucose, and Medication History, and create detailed or monthly reports. With Health Tracking Appointments, users can schedule and organize upcoming appointments for individuals. It allows users to obtain the contact information of physicians/specialists and hospitals from a pre-populated list. Users can specify the reason for appointments, record results, and include follow-ups on future appointments.
All About Incident Reporting
The Incident Report (IR) and Medication Error Report (MER) applications have been combined in the General Event Reports (GER) application to ensure wider features, flexibility for tracking multiple, related incidents for an individual. Using the General Event Reporting tool, users can report and follow-up on a wide range of incidents including injuries, behavioral concerns and accidents among others.
To allow the greatest amount of flexibility there are separate Submit, Approve, Review, and View roles for each event type. Users with the appropriate roles can create, approve, review, view, and delete these reports.
