Last week (August 3-4) I had the opportunity to attend the ARRM Technology Showcase in Bloomington, Minnesota. The focus of the event was to discuss how technology is impacting the I/DD industry and to visit with vendors about their various tech tools. Of the 150-200 attendees, there were 30-35 current Therap users representing about 20 Minnesota agencies.
I had the pleasure of meeting these users, answering questions and visiting about the recent Release, Individual Based Caseloads, how the Billing Plus functionality works with the MN-ITs system… lots of great conversation.
It was also great to meet agencies that were not electronic database users and show them the advantages of using the Therap System. This group was interested in seeking solutions.
The conference adjourned Tuesday afternoon, and after talking to the last agency in the hall, I packed the booth, gathered my materials and decided to not work in the hotel room. I had been there since Sunday afternoon and was seeking some outdoor venue to check email and touch base other clients and contacts. Since this was a technology show and I do “work in the cloud”, why not checkout a local lake with internet access? There are 10,000 lakes in the state, right?
So, by 5:30pm, I was sitting at Lord Fletcher’s dock on Lake Minnetonka, doing catch-up work, having a walleye sandwich and ice tea. A great way to cap off a very good conference.
(BTW – No mosquitoes!)
Thanks to ARRM for hosting the event. I look forward to attending next summer.
I was fortunate enough to be selected to attend the 2015 ARRM Conference this past week in Bloomington, MN. Wow… I met a lot of people and many Therap users, all of which were quick to share that they “love” Therap. As the “new guy” (this was week 3 for me with Therap), it was great to meet new people and our customers. Thank you for taking the time to seek me out. I appreciated the conversation and kind words.
There were times that the vendor area was so busy, I was not able to jot down names and contact information. So… please take advantage of my offer of sending me an email to get information you seek and/or to simply say ‘hello’. Again, my email address is firstname.lastname@example.org .
If we do not connect in the near future, I will be attending ARRM’s Technology Conference & Showcase, Monday, August 3rd & Tuesday, August 4th, 2015.
Also, please feel free register for the Therap Regional Conference being held in Burnsville, Minnesota, August 18-19, 2015. Like our other regional conferences, this training intensive event will include beginner, intermediate advanced level sessions conducted by Therap experts on various Therap modules including:
- Incident and Event Reports

This will be a good opportunity for prospective users to learn more about Therap’s web-based applications for the Developmental Disabilities community. You can learn more and register via this link: Minnesota Regional Conference 2015
See you soon!
This week Jeff Mau and I had the wonderful opportunity to spend time with our awesome providers in Iowa while attending the IACP conference in Ames. All of the folks we talked to seemed pretty excited to have a Therap representative local! Jeff Mau resides in Des Moines and is more than excited to begin getting to know all of our current Iowa providers and all of the Iowa providers who want to know more about Therap!
We have some pretty awesome Therap orange water bottles and large individual home posters to give out so make sure you stop by our Therap booth next week at the ARRM conference in Minnesota to pick some up!
