DSP Recognition Week :: September 13-19, 2015

DSP Week

Gov Malloy DSP Proclamation

Along with governors around the country (many encouraged by members of ANCOR), Governor Malloy here in Connecticut has declared September 13-19, 2014 Direct Support Professional week.

Given how many DSPs use Therap on a daily basis, we’re big fans, what are you doing to celebrate the DSPs in your community?

Tuesday in Colorado

I am in Colorado for three conferences rolled into one.

Today and tomorrow is the Six State Summit, my favorite conference of the year. State and provider folks from CMS Region 8 (North Dakota, South Dakota, Montana, Utah, Colorado, and Wyoming) get together to share ideas. These are great states for us so there are lots of old friends to talk to.

On Thursday it will be the Coleman Institute National Conference on Cognitive Disability and Technology in Challenging Economic Environments.

And then finally on Friday it is the:3rd Annual ANCOR Technology Leadership Summit: Technology Solutions for Tough Times

Makes for a busy week!

More Exciting Sessions for Therap's National Provider Administrator Conference

I am very excited to announce that the keynote address on Day Two of our conference will be given by Oracle.  We have come across many situations where agencies have tried, with the best intentions, to develop their own system running local databases.  Therap’s top of the line hardware and infrastructure is one of the many things that separates us from any competition that might be out there.  You will now have an opportunity to hear from Oracle about why their software and hardware help to keep your data safe and accessible.  Enjoy…

There are also a number of other outside speakers to make sure you catch up with.  Remember that these folks will be happy to talk to you […]

Wednesday in Louisville with Deyta

Richard and I spent most of Wednesday in Louisville, Kentucky talking with the folks from Deyta about ANCOR’s Performance Excellence Toolkit as well as the other satisfaction survey and benchmarking products that they have.

With Performance Excellent, agencies can become part of a national system to measure quality and progress.  Obviously when looking at topics such as Preventive Healthcare (which will be coming out in 2010), harnessing the data held within Therap could made participation a lot easier and more accurate.

We are in the process of starting a trial of just that (if you’d like to join in, please let me know). 

We are also […]

Incident Management and Organizational Transparency

Don’t forget that the next ANCOR webinar is tomorrow (11/4) at 1pm Eastern.

Is your agency as transparent as you claim it is or as you would like it to be? How do you cope with the competing interests of transparency and HIPAA? Can you get a complete circle of support including the individual and family involved in your incident reporting process while still meeting all your state regulations? Justin Brockie, COO of Therap Services will demonstrate how this can all be achieved while at the same time saving money

You can sign up here
