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!

Multi-Provider SComm in Therap 9.1

One of the very cool things about Individual Unification in Therap 9.1 is that we now have unified SComm inbox for mutil-providers users (States and Multi-State Providers).

In order to be able to use this feature, both the sender and the recipient need to have Multi-Provider SComm enabled in their privileges.

This setting is defaulted to being enabled for Oversight Agencies, however, for Linked Providers, you will need to go in and enable this for any user that you want to be able to communicate with users at the Oversight Agency.

Therap 9.1 Release Date is now July 24th, 2011

Graphic showing Therap version 9.1 is coming soon

In order to give you the highest quality release possible, we are resscheduling Therap 9.1 to July 24th.  This means that the date for getting all your IDFs into in-prep or Approved status is now July 23rd.

We are also rescheduling the webinars previewing these new features (though you can watch a recording of the Single Provider one here at any time).

Rather than doing these as live webinars, I will be recording them and sending out a link to anyone who singed up

Allergy Profiles in Therap 9.1

As well as all the amazing unification functionality in Therap 9.1, we will also be taking our next step towards CCHIT Compliance.

Currently, allergies are listed in a text box.  In Therap 9.1 (if you have subscribed to our First DataBank live drug database) you get all sorts of new features.

Firstly, allergies are now listed individually and can be picked from the First DataBank list.

Now, when you add a new medication, it will tell you if there is a reaction between that medication and an allergy or that medication and another medication already being taken!

Therap Regional Conference in Montana

Maureen, Stephen, Ken, Jay and I have spent the last couple of days in Helena, Montana at our local Therap conference.

Actually I haven’t been here a full two days thanks to getting delayed in LaGuardia and stuck in Denver.

Every time I land in Montana I am struck all over again by what an amazingly beautiful place this is.

On top of that, it’s been a great conference with all sorts of fascinating sessions and discussions, including a lot about what we are calling “Individual Unification”.  Expect to hear much more about that in the coming weeks.

For now though I have a couple of extra days of meetings out here so hopefully I will get to see something beyond the hotel walls!

Scheduling Medications in MAR

When we brought in medication scheduling in 9.0 it opened up a world of possibilities.  There is however a bit of a problem.  Not all possibilities for med scheduling can be done through the scheduler that is built into the Medication History module.

Well, we have a solution, and a very cool one at that which can basically copy with any scheduling routine you have.

All you need to do is go to your MAR and switch to Configuration Mode, you can now click on any cell to make it scheduled or remove the scheduling.

You can now define exactly the schedule you want your staff to see!

Using Excel with Therap :: Working with times

I have been working with Bill from Montana on how to easily run a report calculating which shifts certain injuries occurred on.

As you may know, I love an Excel challenge, and so, Bill and I have been exchanging emails back and forth as we got closer and closer to an elegant solution.

Key to this is getting Excel to recognise times as times.  By using a feature known as Text to Columns, that is now really easy.

The other trick here is using nested IF formulas which although it looks really smart and complicated is actally rather simple.  If you watch the video above (I would encourage you to double click and open it in YouTube so you can watch it in […]

The Six State Summit in Big Sky Montana

Original Picture is Unavailable

You know it’s going to be a good day when this is what you wake up to. (It is also perfect Allison weather!)

After a long day’s travel, I finally arrived in Big Sky at the fabulous Buck’s T-4.

The Six State Summit is for states and providers from CMS Region 8: North Dakota, South Dakota, Montana, Wyoming, Utah, Colorado.

The conference is great, and in many ways like a Therap conference in that it is full of networking and very relaxed.  It’s also somewhere people don’t want to leave (though the scenery here is a little more dramatic than Fishkill)

It is particularly cool to meet up again with old friends from places like […]

Lots going on, just not much blogging!

Customer Support

It is always my goal to get at least one blog post out each day, but I am afraid that I really haven't been keeping up for the past week or so.  A combination of busy days, lots of travel, and a three year old that isn't into sleeping seem to be the contributing factors.

Don't worry though, the lack of posting certainly doesn't equate to a lack of action here in Therapville.  We have an awful lot of really exciting things going on, a few of which are just bubbling under the surface and I hope to be able to announce in June.

The next two weeks feature our Regional Conferences in Fargo, North Dakota and […]
