Therap Services applications and certified Electronic Health Record (EHR) provide the documentation components needed by Intellectual Disability and Developmental Disability Service Agencies to maintain their focus while adapting to a changing environment within the Human Services industry. State and federal agencies and standards, including CMS and HIPAA, mandate strict requirements on accurately tracking incidents, including those reports of abuse and neglect and prevention of Medicaid fraud. Therap’s customers can complete and monitor documentation efficiently across secure domains, enabling them to focus on providing higher quality services to individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities.

Therap is used across disciplines in the I/DD field per the CMS home and community-based services (HCBS) requirements.

Meeting with the State of Nebraska

This week Justin, Sazzad, and myself have been in beautiful Lincoln, NE for a little snow, a little planning, and a little program forecasting.  All in all it was a good couple of days.  We even had an opportunity to stop into one of my favorite restaurants in the Haymarket area at the Oven Restaurant.  Here is a pic of deliciousness… take a look and watch the latest video blog.

Get your curry on

In addition I have another installment of the latest Midwest video blog, enjoy!!!

Is Illinois trying to reinvent Therap?

I was sent a snippet from the HB 5124 Steering Committee Report today and it reads:

“Progress continues on the development of the Central Repository Vault (CVR) with the addition of the pilot agencies information, the designation of a “Record Master” for each state agency and the development of an evaluation tool. At this time the only people who have access to the site are the pilot participants and state agency staff. Surveyors will be attend training that will include instruction that they are to utilize the CVR prior to conducting their survey. Eventually each provider will have access to the site to upload documents to your file that will enable your surveyors and/or auditors to obtain this information on line. Surveyors will have view and print access only, they will not be able to alter any documents.”

Sounds a lot like Therap, doesn’t it? Those of us in Illinois that are already benefiting from Therap should direct some attention to the Department of Human Services and Public Health to have them look at Therap seriously as a whole state provider.

If you want to look at the Steering Committee report, you can find it here.
