Visit the NASDDDS Website

Peter and I are spending a vew days in Northern Virginia with State Directors from aorund the country.  It’s nice to see one of the keynote speakers be from our home state of Connecticut, none other than Joette Katz, the Commissioner of Connecticut’s Department of Children and Families and Governing Magazine’s 2012 Public Official of the Year.

This is a great conference for both policy wonks and for networking.  If you haven’t been before, you should give it a try, it’s quite an impressive guest list!

Wednesday at the Therap Connecticut Conference

What a great first day!

We’ve got more that 100 people here and some serious Theraping going on.

From my part we have some great discussion about the new mobile ISP Data and Mobile MAR apps. but I love just walking past groups of people having in-depth conversations about a particular bit of the system or commenting on how much better their agency is now they use Therap.

Back here for more tomorrow!

Animated graphics for contact with Therap

If you use Therap in multiple states, this is an incredible opportunity to meet with similar providers and key Therap staff in a small group setting in Connecticut.
There is no cost to attend, Therap provides the conference lunch and snacks.
It is a one room meeting style conference so we limit attendees to two people per agency.  This will be our third meeting with the previous two having been very positively received.
If you have any questions or would like to sign up, please contact me.

Therap 2013.0 :: Introducing Multi Individual Events

MIE Dashboard

Ever since we produced our first Incident Report in Therap 1.0 about 10 years ago, we have been asked how we deal with an incident involving multiple individuals.  Up to now, we basically didn’t other than insisting (very strongly sometimes) that a single GER or incident report had to be about just one individual in order to preserve HIPAA compliance and data integrity.

Well, in Therap 2013.0 we are introducing the concept of Multi Individual Events!  The way I look at it, there are basically two scenarios.  The first is a bus crash and the second is an altercation.  In the first, the same thing happened to […]

Therap Multi-State Billing Conference

Register Now


I am very excited to announce Therap’s first Multi-State Billing Conference, to take place in Southbury, Connecticut on July 18th and 19th, 2012.

Unfortunately we had to move just down the road from Waterbury due to hotel booking issues.

Currently we provide electronic billing in a number of states and we are planning to expand this range over the coming months and years.  We are also working with more and more agencies that provide services (and hence bill) in multiple states.

This conference will give an opportunity for Therap and our customers to work together on the special challenges that face multi-state organizations as well strategic directions that make the most sense for Therap’s electronic billing […]

Update on the Apocolypse

Well, buying a generator did the trick, about 14 hours after we got it up and running and got Siraya’s room warmed up the power came on!

The generator (which I feel should have a name, though I haven’t come up with a good one yet) is still working hard though as it is now warming up another foster family in the next town over.

We are certainly amongst the lucky ones as it seems like about 60% of Connecticut still doesn’t.  You can keep up with the saga here.  According to discussions on the radio it may be well into next week or beyond that folks get power back.  My father-in-law up the road is still in the dark.

In the middle […]

Surviving the Zombie/Connecticut Apocolypse

It has been an amazing couple of days here in Connecticut…

From a Therap perspective, basically everything has carried on as normal apart from the fact our office/IP phones aren’t working.  One of the joys of having such a distributed support network is that it is very difficult for everyone to be knocked out by one event.

Here in my town, there are just a few things that still have power, the essentials for life such as Dunkin Donuts and Cumberland Farms (gas station/convenience store) and The Wolcott Center – a day program run by PrimeCare who were nice enough to let Stephen and me use a desk, some power, and an […]

Winter in October

Snow Covered Tree


As you may have seen on the news, Connecticut was wiped out by a freak October snow storm that has basically broken every record in the books, including the number of homes losing power.

This includes me (I’m currently in a coffee shop in New Haven while Calum has a music lesson) and our office.  Because of this, I will be cold and our phones won’t be working.  If you are looking for any of us, Live Help, cell phones and email are your best bet.

The combination of a foot of wet snow and trees that still have leaves on them has left most […]
