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.

A N E Profile

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.

A N E Super Role

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 […]

Already Here :: GER Event Category Rule

DASHBOARD - GER Event Rules

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 […]

Coming soon :: GER Update this Summer

New Ger start

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.

Mobile GER  Mobile GER List
Not only is the new UI cleaner and easier to use, it is also what […]

Therap 2016.1 :: Are you ready for the changes in Medication History and MAR?

Pharmacy Interface

This coming weekend we will (finally!) be releasing our Pharmacy Interface (much more about that in later posts).

The big deal with with this release is that we have made a number of changes in Medication History which you need to go and take a look at before the release.

These changes make our Medication History compliant with HL7 standards and add in functionality that we have been looking to add for quite some time like component medications, more flexible scheduling, and definitive end times.

In some ways, the biggest task for us is the migration of all our existing Med History and MAR data over to the new structure (you will see we have quite […]

Staff Ratio Tracking :: New in Therap 2016.0

This is one of those modules that you are either going to think is the greatest thing since T-Logs or you are going to wonder what the point is.  Which camp you fall into will most likely depend completely on which state you work in.  Folks in places like Maine, Ohio, and Indiana should really like this.

The basic goal is to allow you to easily record in real time what the ratios of staff to individuals are in a given program on any day.

This is an agency wide module, so it is not filtered by caseload (hence it showing on the agency tab).

Staff Ratio - Dashboard

You start off by making a […]

Coming Soon in 2016.0 :: New Individual Home

I had hoped to get to some posts about our next release right after our National Conference, but was unfortunately smitten by some dreaded lurgy.  So, now I am (more or less) back on my feet, let’s get started.

The first thing that you will notice when you go to https://beta.TherapServices.net is our new Login Page.  This now gives us an opportunity to give you information without forcing you to click through too many splash pages.

You can click on the screenshots to see them full size.

New Login Page

 

Once you log in (remembering that this is beta and not production) you should start by heading over to Individual Home.  You’ll see that it […]

Therap 2015.0 :: GER Resolution

With our release this weekend we will be bringing you a new module called GER Resolution.  This gives you a separate place with its own permissions to record the results of any investigations and what the final outcome of an incident was.

You can learn much more about GER Resolution here: http://support.therapservices.net/display/support/Release+Notes+for+2015.0.0#ReleaseNotesfor2015.0.0-GERResolution

(There also has to be a Tony the Tiger joke about “GERR”!)

Also, you can visit Therap’s Training Academy for a new self directed course all about GER Resolution.

Coming Soon :: Therap 2015.0 :: Event Summaries

Agency Wide Roles 2015_0

There will now be two roles associated with Event Summaries, the roles role is an agency wide one.  This will allow users to run reports across all individuals regardless of their caseload.  Access to this version of the Event Summary is on the Agency Reports tab.

Agency Reports 2015_0

Users with the existing caseload based Event Summary role will be able to run reports on up to 10 individuals at a time (based upon their caseload).  Access to this version of […]

Thinking about wording in GERs

As I am sure you all know, words are very important, especially in our corner of the world.

Last year, we even say the updating of ICD-9 to recognise more current thinking.

Now, we are looking at the wording with in the “Restraint Related to Behavior” and “Restraint Other”.  The word “restraint” is quite understandably a very emotive one, bringing with it reminders of a shameful past.  However, it is used in many states to refer to practices that are used appropritely and safely.  

We would like to replace the word restraint and some of the related terms within those sections.  Obviously where we have state forms, those forms will continue to use the state wording.

I hope to present alternative language soon […]
