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.

New Document Storage Option in Therap

Take a look at the new document storage option in Therap.  This information has been highlighted in Leah’s blog and I wanted to make sure you were all aware of this new option to store important client information.

If you would like more info on this feature let us know and we will be glad to add this to your account with us.


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

Winter Storm and Therap

The snow continues to fall across the region today as schools, business, churches, and countless other activities are brought to a halt.  Here in KC it looks like it will be a couple of days before things get back to normal as many will scramble to clear roads, drives, and sidewalks.  It is in these times that I am reminded once again of the value of Therap as people are able to stay up to date and current with what is taking place across an agency by simply logging into the system.  I hope you all stay safe today and take advantage of logging in and catching up on whatever needs to be addressed.

Snowfall in KC brings thing to a halt.
