It’s been a while… exciting things are coming

I have always found that blogging is a habit.  As such, it is easy to do while you are doing it and easy not to do at all! Recently I have been much more in the latter camp! However, we have a whole bunch of exciting things happening over the coming months so I think it is about time to get back in the blogging habit. Watch this space... :: Justin ::

We are now a day and a half into this year's National Conference and things are their usual crazy, wonderful, selves.

The Joys of Testing

So, Business Intelligence will be coming soon, just not quite as soon as we hoped! As usual, we have been putting our next release through some rigorous testing.  As a result of this, we have found an issue that we are not completely comfortable with and so we are delaying the BI portion to a later date. It won't be long, and it will be well worth the wait. :: Justin ::

Coming Soon :: Therap Business Intelligence

I'm very excited to announce that with our upcoming release (Therap 2016.1.6 - details here) will include our first production release of Therap Business Intelligence. This is a very powerful tool, based on Oracle Business Intelligence that allows the mining of massive amounts of data and the presentation of intuitive graphical dashboards. As always, with our iterative approach to development, this release will contain some initial dashboards (demographics and General Event Reports to start with), but we have plans for many more things to come.  Of course, those of you getting on board now will be able to take advantage of some very advantageous early adopter pricing.

Day 2 at the Rehab International World Congress

Another great day at the Rehab International World Congress in Edinburgh, Scotland. Today was my turn to present, taking about Therap's approach and the impact it has on people and their circle of support. The format was a new one for me.  Four presentations were grouped together with each presenter talking and then a time for questions.  I wasn't sure what to expect, but I actually really liked it.  I think it helped have more people in the session for all of us and the other presentations were very cool. Making gait analysis quicker, cheaper, and more affordable.

Internet Access Issues on October 21st

A lot of you (our current estimate is about 30%) may have had problems reaching Therap today. At no time during the day was Therap down.  There have been thousands of people logged in all day long. However, a service called Dyn which we (and many other major sites like Twitter and Reddit) use for directing web traffic was down due to a DDOS attack.   This meant that when you typed www.TherapServices.net into your browser, there was nowhere available to tell your browser where to look to find our website or application. Here are a couple of links on what happened: Dyn Status Page NPR: What's up with the internet today? If you have any questions, please get in touch. [...]

A much better day at the office – and a great day in Western New York

We have now fixed the issue that was impacting the system over the past couple of days and since releasing the fix, everything has been running smoothly. I have again been reminded of what a great community of people we work with.  While many folks have understandably voiced their frustration, I have been amazed and humbled at how many of our users have sent messages of encouragement and support.  We really appreciate the feedback and it inspires us to continue to improve and enhance our services for you. Meanwhile, Jeff Case and I have been visiting with folks out here in Western New York.  There have been some great discussions about our upcoming connection to HealthyLink, the pharmacy interface, and [...]

Update on System Issues

Unfortunately today has continued some of the difficulties that we were seeing yesterday. We have been working really hard to address the issues and believe we have narrowed it down.  For this reason, we have temporarily disabled GERs while we work on finding a final solution.  This allows you to continue to do nearly all of what you need to do as we work. We aren't happy with this situation, but sometimes it really shows how difficult what we do is. At this time all I can do is apologize for the aggravation that I know this is causing you and assure you that we are doing all we can to get back to the stability you expect and deserve. [...]

A Rough Day in Therapville

As you have probably been experiencing, things have not been running very smoothly today with our application. This would appear to have something to do with our release this past weekend, hence the reason for temporarily disabling T-Logs. We are working hard to diagnose and fix the issues. We appreciate your patience and truly regret the inconvenience and annoyance that instability causes. I'll update you when I have more concrete news. :: Justin :: UPDATE: 8:00pm Eastern: We have re-enabled T-Logs, things are looking good, but we are watching very closely. UPDATE: 8:20pm Eastern: Unfortunately that didn't work and we need to take T-Logs down again.

Filming at Charles Lea Center, Spartanburg, South Carolina

We spent a great day today filming a video with the very fine folks at The Charles Lea Center.  We are focusing especially on how they use technology (especially Therap and Simply Home) to help folks become more independent within their communities. They have this great setup called "Easy Street"  where they have all sorts of home (kitchen, bedroom, bathroom) and community (bank, fast food, doctor, dentist, van, streets) setups that people can explore and get used to. I'm really excited to see how the video comes out. :: Justin ::
