Coming Soon :: No more Internet Explorer 10

Along with all exciting new features and updates we will be bringing this summer, we continue to work on Therap under the hood both in terms of hardware and software. In order to meet the latest standards for functionality and security, we need to make sure that you are not using software that is out of date and possibly unsecure or not able to take advantage of the latest tools. As part of this, over the summer, we will no longer access from Internet Explorer 10.  This is a browser that is no longer supported by Microsoft.  We will continue to support IE 11 and above along with Firefox and Chrome. You can see our latest requirements here. If you [...]

Coming Soon :: Changes to Abuse/Neglect/Exploitation roles

Along with the changes we will be making to the GER User Interface this summer, we are also changing the way that we handle the role which controls access to GERs with an allegation of abuse, neglect, or exploitation. This role is currently an agency wide one.  This means that it is assigned on the User Profile and once given it, the user can access such GERs for anyone they have access to. We are changing it to being a Caseload based role so that it is assigned as part of a super role.  This will give you finer control over the access and also mean that it will work in cross-provider situations such as Case Management access. In [...]

South Carolina Annual Case Management and Early Intervention Conference

Today in Columbia, South Carolina we have 400 or so Case Managers from all over the state coming together to learn more about Therap, most specifically a whole bunch of Case Management modules that are in the process of being rolled out. We are running five concurrent sessions co-teaching with our colleagues from DDSN. This is a great hotel to run a conference in, incredibly helpful staff and a nicely laid out facility.  We have a full team of support staff here so it's looking like a great day! Not only that, then we have two days for Day and Residential Providers to come. Before that though, a wee bit of Fireflies Baseball! :: Justin :: [/fusion_text][/fusion_builder_column][/fusion_builder_row][/fusion_builder_container]

Changes for Independent Providers in Nebraska

https://youtu.be/YIodUrrGORk Independent providers in Nebraska (all 1000+ of them) who log into Therap will discover that there is a whole lot more functionality available to them within Therap. Up to now, Independent Providers have just been doing Attendance and Billing in Therap.  With upcoming waiver changes, providers who are offering habilitative services will have to complete additional documentation. To help with mastering these new skills, we have made some new classes in The Therap Training Academy specifically for Nebraska. :: Justin ::

Already Here :: GER Event Category Rule

This is actually a feature that we released a few months ago (part of getting ready for the new GER) but I have spoken to a number of people that weren't aware of it, so I thought that this would be a good opportunity for us to review. If you have used GERs for any length of time you will have received a message letting you know that a given event type needs to have a certain notification level.  You may well have wondered "What are the rules for which event types?" or "Can I configure those rules to match my agency policies and state regulations?". [author's note:  I really hope that you are the sort of person that asks [...]

Coming soon :: GER Update this Summer

The first of our exciting new features that I'd like to talk about is the new and approved GER which we plan to roll out this summer. Those of you who were lucky enough to be at our national conference had a quick peek at this. We've made several improvements since then. The two most obvious changes are the move to our new User Interface (UI) and the change from a long scrolling form to a paged workflow.    Not only is the new UI cleaner and easier to use, it is also what is know as a reponsive design. This means that it configures itself to the size of screen that you are working on, be that a desktop, [...]

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 ::

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. Business Intelligence (BI) works with both Oversight and singer provider accounts and gives [...]

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.
