Minnesota Therap News: CSSP Custom Form / ISP Agenda / Billing Claims Mandate for Waiver Services

CSSP Custom Form in Therap being updated.

Matt Wahl from PKT shared the updated regs regarding the inclusion of technology questions in the CSSP form.  ARRM has published an example of the prefered verbiage.  I have made the request to have the form updated for this purpose, with the ARRM sample copy.

Deb Koop from LSS shared the updated reg from 245D.07.Subd.4. “Service outcomes and supports”.  These points are earmarked for inclusion in the CSSP as well.  If anyone has a sample of the questions or verbiage the state is suggesting for “Service Outcomes and Supports”, please send them to me. 

Updates as available.

Request for the 245D “Progress Review Summary” form to be added.

Matt Wahl also asked if it would be possible to add the Progress Review Summary form to Therap.  I have advanced this to our development team for review.  If this request is granted, I will advise.

MN Specific ISP Agenda Questions.

At the August MN Regional Conference, during the ISP Plan / Agenda session we discussed the possibility of enhancing the menu of questions in the agenda for MN needs.  With the user community’s assistance, I have a proposal into our developers to add questions for…

  • Admission
  • 30-Day
  • 45-Day
  • Quarterly
  • Semi-Annual
  • Annual
  • Progress Review Summary
  • Other Meeting Type

…which also includes questions for the Final Rule Medicaid HCBS CMS 2249-F and CMS 2296-F.

Since this makes the menu quite long (62 options), I have also proposed the addition of a “guidance” section to help you make the proper selections per meeting type (e.g. Questions 11 through 25 are suggested by 245D for individual intake / admission / initial planning meetings).

We are keeping the developers busy!

Is your agency ready for the February 5th, 2018 billing change mandate?

On 2/5/18, the day-to-day billing submission mandate is effective for waiver services.  Batch claims without daily service line items will be denied by MN-ITs.   Per Barb Turner at ARRM, all other services have this requirement.  MN-ITs made the decision to bring waiver services into alignment earlier this year.

If you are using the Billing Plus moduleyou already know that Therap has been compliant with this upcoming mandate since the functionality was introduced in Minnesota.

If you still seek a solution, adding Billing Plus to your Therap system is very worthy of consideration.  Submit claims directly from your Therap service documentation or Attendance Data.  Therap & MN-ITs get along well!  

Contact me directly to schedule an informational webinar with Dawn Gilder, our Therap MN Billing Specialist.  Dawn can be reached at dawn.gilder@therapservices.net

And finally…

Our Data Driven Outcomes with Business Intelligence module answers the question of how to best Measure Your Organization’s Most Important Data.  Therap held a webinar for ANCOR in October on the topic.  It’s a great overview of DDO, click here to watch it.

Best,

Jeff

IOS Update for ISP Data App

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.

2017 National Conference Schedule is Out!!!!

 

It is that time of year again.  The 2017 National Conference is right around the corner.  Take an opportunity to look around at the upcoming event.  We have changed some things and added some workshops that will make this conference an awesome opportunity for you and your agency to get caught up on the new things going on in your documentation solution.

2016…Come a long way!

So this week I brought another Missouri provider into the Therap community through a webinar.  I was a little hesitant at the start of the meeting as the person joining the Go To Meeting webinar said, “I hope it is allright as I am joining in on my phone instead of the computer?”  My hesitancy was that at the conclusion of the call it would be necessary for the person to enter in some data and initiate the process and activate the process by clicking on a button off the Therap website.  Regardless, we began and we went through the process and the entire process was completed in a matter of minutes.  No problems whatsoever!  It was pretty cool.  It was amazing for me to think back to the first agency in Missouri that started using Therap and how different things were then in comparison to this brand new agency signing up.  It has been so exciting to be apart of so many agencies moving to greater efficiency, transparency, higher accountability, and less paper chasing through the last several years.  It got me wondering and thinking just how many agencies in MO are still out there lost in a paper world?  If you haven’t taken the time to see how Therap can make a difference for your agency give me a call so we can show you this solution.

Meeting with Folks in Nebraska

It has been a good first day meeting with the good folks in Nebraska as we kicked off the NE Conference in Omaha.  The excitement associated with the upcoming release and the new billing features that are going to be available in the billing modules has been very well received.  Therap’s new release will definitely expedite and provide efficiencies for providers to enter data thru the attendance modules to get paid and document services in NE.

In addition to the billing module updates we are also going over the release of the individual based caseloads that I believe will be welcomed by all the agencies.  This along with the other module enhancements are making this weekend a very welcomed event.

State of Oklahoma Governor’s Conference

State of Oklahoma Conference

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.

Employment History is a New Module Worth Taking a Look

So have you had some time to look at the new Employment History Module that has been added in Therap.  The module provides the opportunity for agencies to create employment and volunteering history for individuals. Using this module the Administrator can create, update or delete employers, contact persons and job templates. Users can create, update or delete employment referral, assessment, employment milestone, career development plan, training and coaching, application and interview and job details using this module.

As this module continues and more agencies utilize this module we can expect to see future enhancements and functionality.  Employment and the ability to track specific data points is becoming increasingly important for agencies to track and Therap is working hard to look at solutions to provide agencies to do just kind of tracking.

Take some time to click on the link to find out more about employment history…http://support.therapservices.net/display/documentation/Employment+History
