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.
A great number of agencies were excited with the release of the IOS version of the ISP Data app for Apple devices. The app allows for collection of data with the ability to have a signature and a GPS location attached to the note provided by the staff entering the data for the service provision. In our latest release that came out March 12 an update for the IOS app was released and those using the app need to make sure and go to the Itunes store and be sure to update or reinstall the Therap app to take full advantage of the functionality newly released.
This week I am catching up with folks in Norman, OK at the Governor’s Conference on Developmental Disabilities. The event is taking place at the Embassy Suites in Norman and featured Tina Campanella as the keynote speaker. The theme for this year’s conference is “A Journey to a Good Life” and continues through today. The conference has provided several opportunity to network and connect with current Therap users as well as speak with some folks yet to experience the efficiencies of a web based documentation solution.
Therap now connects directly with all Managed Care Organizations in Kansas.
The Kansas Department of Aging and Disability Services (KDADS) has outlined billing guidelines for Day Support Services, Code T2021, with Unit limitations per day, per week, as well as monthly and annual service limits for individuals. Therap Services electronic billing solutions assists I/DD service providers in meeting the KanCare and the Kansas Medical Assistance Program (KMAP) Medicaid audit compliance regulations.
Jeff Case, Central Region Director at Therap Services states: “The Therap team is committed to supplying I/DD Providers inKansas the most effective software solution for direct submission to the state Medicaid system. We anticipate agencies supporting individuals with disabilities will benefit greatly from the Therap System’s efficiencies as they seamlessly document supports, bill electronically and track utilization of services.”
Each month, Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities Service Providers utilize Therap’s electronic Billing Support applications for submission of professional claims, institutional claims, for tracking of service authorizations, completion of goal-related data to validate service provision and attendance data. A service is configured to generate billable units automatically from its attendance data or ISP data that are already entered into Therap by agency staff. Therap’s Billing Support module uses an integrated approach for creation of claims/invoices, regardless of whether an agency will submit their ANSI X-12 837P and 837I claims electronically or through the professional paper claim form (CMS 1500). The option to enter units manually is also available. The automated generation of billing units using information from different Therap modules ensures a simplified experience for our customers.
Therap Services electronic billing applications assist providers in avoiding any over-billing errors and unnecessary recoupments of payments for services. Therap’s electronic Billing Support applications incorporate a variety of billing reports including a utilization report that tracks service units utilized over a given period of time. This report grants providers the ability to chart percentages of total utilization, plan and monitor service units, reduce number of unused service units and view remaining days, expiration status, and unit costs.
Therap Services applications are certified as an electronic health record (EHR) under CCHIT’s Long Term and Post-Acute Care Standard. Therap has been reviewed by SOC 2 Report which is relevant to the security, availability, processing integrity, confidentiality, and privacy practices of a service organization. The SOC 2 Report for Therap’s Intellectual and Developmental Disability software solution covers the AICPA Trust principles; a set of professional attestation and advisory services based on a core set of principles and criteria that address the risks and opportunities of IT-enabled systems and privacy programs.

I would like to welcome the newest agency to Therapville in the Midwest, Ruth Jensen Village! They are located in Bowling Green, Missouri and are a group of awesome people who are full of energy. I had a great time while I was there. Not only was I able to meet new people but I was able to enjoy awesome breakfast at a nice local diner. (I actually had it twice in the same day!)
I have a lot of confidence that they will do awesome with Therap!
I was able to spend a fantastic week and a half in Minnesota with 3 awesome new providers who are beginning to use Therap! It was also a nice escape from the Midwestern heat and you cannot beat scenery like this…
My week started out at Access of the Red River Valley, then I spent a few days at Synstelin Community Services, and ended my week and a half with Connections of Moorehead.
So excited to welcome these 3 awesome agencies to Therap!! Also, thanks to the folks at Connections for suggesting I spend my weekend in Minnesota here…
