Therap in Alabma

Therap is happy to be working with providers in Alabama! The Department of Mental Health Division of Developmental Disabilities has mandated the use of Therap for Incident Reporting throughout the State of Alabama.

Use of Therap for the documentation of Incident Reports will allow a more transparent and efficient process statewide. Implementation of Therap began in early 2016. Providers began using Therap’s General Event Report module effective July 1st, 2016.

Therap in Canada

This week I have enjoyed visiting with organizations across the Province of Manitoba.   It has been a good week of discovering more information about the services and the structure of services in Canada and the challenges they face in service provision.  In addition, I have had the opportunity to attend the CCDDA conference here in Winnipeg and it has been a tremendous opportunity to meet with folks.  In addition to the conference, my time has been well spent as I have had the opportunity to sit down with lots of different folks across many varied organizations and agencies.  The license plates have the tag line “Friendly Manitoba”.  I would definitely have to agree as they people have been very friendly and welcoming to me.  It is obvious that so many would benefit from a solution like Therap in aiding with communication and organization of data and information.  I look forward to meeting with more folks today as the conference continues.

 

We were at the 25th DDNA Conference in Dallas!

Last weekend (Thursday through Sunday) I was fortunate enough to represent Therap at the 25th Annual Developmental Disabilities Nurses Association (DDNA) Educational Conference.  It was held at the downtown Hyatt in Dallas, Texas.  This event was attended by nurses from all over the USA.   I counted somewhere near 300 I/DD nurses!  Obviously, all specialized in supporting individuals in service.   Quite a fun group!

Knowing that Therap was their Signature Sponsor, at the Friday evening Gala Celebration held at Eddie Deen’s Downtown Ranch, I was not aware that a photo booth with a live Texas Longhorn was included!  If you wanted, you could get your picture taken on this majestic animal.  Anyone who had a picture taken, received their picture riding off into the Texas sunset.

At first I thought the steer was a model, as it stood so still.  But, nope.  He was LIVE.  I asked the handler about his “pet” and, indeed, this beautiful animal was a family pet.  He was raised by the family as a companion animal.  Very much like a working dog, he loves to be around people and loves his job in the spotlight.  So much so that there is no need for any unnatural means of keeping him calm.

He lives in an air conditioned barn.  He travels in an air conditioned trailer.  He has a bed…not a bunch of hay….a BED.  And, is fed a top quality diet.  As the owner / handler stated, “His current life sure beats the alternative.”

This photo-op was a show stopper!!

Best,

Jeff

 

 

The ARRM Technology Conference is Nov. 15th

On November 15th, ARRM (the Minnesota Provider Association) is hosting their annual Technology Conference in Minneapolis.   If you are attending, please be sure to visit the Therap booth.  I am looking forward to seeing members (and prospective members) of our MN Therap User Community, as well as make new acquaintances.

Contact me at anytime! jeff.mau@therapservices.net

If you are seeking electronic solutions for your agency, this is the conference to attend.  ARRM sums it up quite nicely…

Technology solutions for our industry will soon no longer be the leading edge, but the status quo. The ARRM Technology Conference is Minnesota’s only event to help providers stay ahead of the business and regulatory curve.

The ARRM Technology Conference is an opportunity for professionals from every sector of the disability services industry, both public and private, to learn about the latest advances in technological supports for people with disabilities. Attendees engage with national experts, peers, individuals and families served by technology, and solution providers.

BTW – If you have not received one of those cool Therap water bottles, I am bringing a supply!

See you next week.

Best,

Jeff
