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.

HIPAA Secure Document Storage Module Is Just the Thing doc storage1

As part of the Therap 2014.1 Release,  we have added the Document Storage module stand-alone feature that was previously only available as part of our CCHIT Certified EHR Package.

With the Document Storage module, different types of External Documents such as Admission Order, Authorization, Consultant Report, Discharge Order, Lab Result, Progress Notes and Referral Document can now be stored for Individuals. Additional details such as Received Date, Validity Range, Description and Comments can also be added while storing a document for an individual. This module allows users to store large amount of Individual documents at one convenient place.

Here are a few facts about the Document Storage module:

  • the list of document types is configured at the provider level
  • the module now has the ability to store a total of up to 1GB per individual and each file can be up to 10MB in size (the CCHIT EHR version remains the same size, with a max of 10MB) 
  • the 1GB per individual limit is not affected by documents attached within other modules
  • the module is currently controlled by the ‘Individual’ Admin role found on the User Privileges page
  • as with all Therap modules, the document storage module is a HIPAA-secure method of storing documents electronically
  • introductory pricing is available, to inquire about cost contact Therap’s Regional Director or Business Consultant in your area, or mail the sales team at sales@therapservices.net, or call us at 203-596-7553 Ext 4

Calvin joins the Central States Team.

Calvin Christensen joins Therap as the newest Training & Implementation Specialist in the Central States Region. Prior to joining Therap’s support team, Calvin worked at Developmental Services of Nebraska (DSN) for four years at a location with high risk adults. Calvin used Therap for efficient documentation of services in his work at DSN.

When asked about his first week at Therap’s East Coast office in Waterbury, CT, Calvin states: “I was able to meet some great co-workers and learn a lot about the process of implementation at the agency level.  I learned a great deal about how providers are utilizing Therap nationally and how to best assist our customers.”

Calvin has since headed back to the Midwest and will be spending time with members of our Support team, visiting provider agencies and attending Therap User Groups & Conferences in weeks to come. If you bump into Calvin, be sure to welcome him as the newest Therapite!
