Justin and Sazzad attending the Buffalo, New York User Group

Therap Applications for State and County offices to monitor the support effort in the region


Sazzad and I have a very busy week coming up.  It all kicks off in Buffalo, New York on April 5th when we will be attending a New York User Group Meeting (click on the link to learn more) being hosted by Community Services for the Developmentally Disabiled.

From there we are off to Lincoln, Nebraska to start work on some exciting new projects there and we’ll finish off the trip with some meetings in Bismark, North Dakota.

It’s an exciting time to be part of the Therapverse!

Developmental disability services in the news in New York

There has been a lot of talk about the developmental disability system and OPWDD in the news in New York recently.  In particular, this past weekend there were significant articles in the New York Times and the Poughkeepsie Journal.

This is how a memo from NYSACRA described it:

This past week, the developmental disabilities sector has received attention in the press; the most serious article related to abuse in the state-operated system appeared on the front cover of yesterday’s  New York Times. OPWDD Acting Commissioner Courtney Burke has reached out to all stakeholders, including NYSACRA, and will host a timely phone meeting this afternoon. We believe the press coverage will have certain ramifications for […]

Therap interfacing with OPWDD's IRMA Incident Reporting System

Picture of OPWDD from queenscp.org

This morning I had the pleasure of talking to the folks at New York’s OPWDD about their IRMA incident reporting system and being able to take data directly from Therap and upload it into IRMA.

The first version of this which we will have ready as soon as IRMA is ready to receive it will work something like this:

  • Complete General Event Reports in Therap as usual including the OPWDD 147
  • Click a button that downloads a special XML file from Therap
  • Log into IRMA
  • Upload the file to IRMA
  • Receive a report back confirming acceptance
