Is it March Already??

It’s just simply hard to believe that March is just a few days away.  Since the 1st of January, it’s been just a blur!  At least the weather wasn’t a ‘brrrrrr’.

In mid- January, I spent a week with Sarah Christiansen assisting with training staff at LifeScape Adult Services in Sioux Falls, SD.  (She was there for a 2 week run!)   LifeScape has been a long time Therap User for their children’s services.  They recently made the decision to begin using Therap in their adult services division, which meant there were many more staff to train.

The LifeScape team made us feel right at home.  They were wonderful hosts.  The IT guy even helped us tear down and pack the computers.

Thank for the dedicated internet access, the classroom…. and we really liked your Smartboard.

 

New Logo with TaglineThe following week I spent a day with Jeff Nichols, CEO at Opportunity Village in Clear Lake, IA, a long time Therap user.  We visited about use, different modules and solutions for the agency.  The fun stuff started when I was sent a link to a demo version of the new Business Intelligence for Demographics & GER’s.  This was the first time I had even touched the module.  Mr. Nichols and I explored and learned together.  Needless to say, we were both impressed.

Jeff was quick to point out how much time Opp Village could save with the GER Dashboard over the hours spent each month currently analysing GER data for monthly safety committee meetings.   The BI GER Dashboard could produce the analysis in minutes.   

Thank you, Jeff, for spending a very productive day with me.

The Therap “Jeff’s” at the 2017 Nat’l Conference.

On the following Sunday, I flew to New Jersey to attend the 2017 Therap National Conference.  More than 500 people attended from 35 states.  Every time I go to the Nat’l Conference I am just immersed into Therap for 3 solid days.   If you have not attended a Nat’l, you really need to go.  The exchange of information and learning is well worth the trip.

For those of you in IA, MN, NE, SD… you’ll be able to drive to the 2018 Therap Nat’l Conference.  It’s being held in Omaha!!

Mark you calendars:  Jan 30th through Feb 1st, 2018.  The Embassy Suites / LaVista Conference Center in “West O”.

 

On a personal note… Upon return from the Nat’l Conference, I had just a few days to wrap up some business and pack for a vacation.   Over the past 3Jeff and Anegada sunset. years I planned to take a vacation, but for health reasons in 2 of those years, it just wasn’t in the cards.   So… this was the year.

My crew and I chartered a sailboat and ‘cruised’ the British Virgin Islands.   The scenery was outstanding.  The food was great.  There was plenty of fun to be had…. but, to sail you must have wind.  The wind Gods took a break midway through our time and we ended up stay on Anegada a bit longer that we had planned…. darn.

Well, I am back at it.  The suntan…er….sunburn is fading, my feet are finally accepting socks and I cut off my dreads.

If you need assistance or have any questions, Therap or otherwise, feel free to reach out.

Best,

Jeff

Therap in Nebraska – Summer 2016

Greetings Nebraska Therap User Community!
While I have met and exchanged emails with some of you, please allow me a moment to introduce myself. My name is Jeff Mau, I live in the Des Moines area. I have been a part of the Therap team for 14 months. I assist my colleague Calvin Christensen, Therap Training & Implementation Specialist, who most of you have had the opportunity to already meet.

While my primary role for Nebraska providers is to assist when evaluating and adding Therap modules beyond the state contract to your system, please consider me as an additional resource when you have questions or seek assistance. Indeed, I have been recently fielding questions from Nebraska providers about the Mobile Basic module and how the recently released Pharmacy Interface module works.

Please feel free to contact me at jeff.mau@therapservices.net or at 515-423-3263.

Therap & Nebraska Stuff…

The Nebraska Regional Therap Conference is almost a month away. It will again be held in Omaha. Early Bird registration ends on the 28th of July. Let’s make it a point to connect.

Calvin and I will be at the NASP Conference being held in Kearney on September 19th and 20th. We are looking forward to this event and I hope to make your acquaintance.

There is a State of Nebraska webpage in the Therap website. I have found it to be a very useful resource for Nebraska specific updates and information. Please check it out.

If you want to have Therap information “pushed” to you, here are 2 options….

1) Send an email to conf@therapservices.net and request to be added to our corporate email distribution list. Be sure to indicate that you are from Nebraska. You will receive news and updates about once per month.

2) Sign up to receive updates regarding Therap’s technical status at TherapStatus.net. Therap will periodically post updates regarding Therap system status, downtime and unavailability. An email notification will be sent to subscribers.

See you soon!

Best,

Jeff

It looks like an HIE may be in your future?

Recently CMS has announced an increased match to promote Health Information Exchanges and Electronic Health Records.  This updated guidance expands the scope of State expenditures eligible for the 90 percent matching rate from the federal government.  It is anticipated that these additional funds will certainly influence the availability for state Health information exchanges to expand and include more sources into the sharing of data.  To read the entire CMS release click on the link…CMS release .
