Puerto Rico joins the Therap Community

IMG_20151001_114524473 (1024x576)

I am very excited no announce another exciting development for Therap. We have been selected by Puerto Rico Department of Health, Division of Services for People with Intellectual Disabilities (DSPDI) to implement Therap across the Commonwealth.

While we are still in the very, early stages of the project, we already have met a great group of people who seem to be as excited to get moving with Therap as we are to help them in achieving their goals of better services and supports for Puerto Ricans with intellectual disabilities. It should also help many of our other users as the team here have agreed to work with us to enhance our […]

Therap Regional Conference in Albuquerque, New Mexico

State map of North Dakota

We have just finnished a great two days of conferencing in Albuquerque.  It looks like we had about 200 people there!

It was a great crowd, all eager to learn and from all aspects of services in New Mexico from providers to case managers to state administrators, surveyors, and investigators.

I have to admit to being a little nervous when I saw quite how many people signed up, but I am very fortunate to work with some great folks.  Maureen, Brent, and Leah ran great sessions and special thanks need to go to Brianne, who though she is no longer we the state I think still knows […]

These are very exciting times here at Therap.  Having just welcomed Michelle Saunders as someone with a huge amount of experience on the provider side of things, I am now delighted to welcome Peter O’Meara who will be working with us on the state side of things.

Our interactions with states have become more and more important over the years, not only as we make sales directly to states, but also as we work on billing interfaces, electronic signatures, and having our forms and processes approved all around the country.  What Jason did in Georgia recently is a great example of this.

Over the coming weeks, Peter will be […]

Therap in Boone County, Missouri

I had been doing really well with my whole blog-post-a-day thing, but last week’s travel schedule finally got to me!

There are though a few things I really should catch you up on.

One of the most exciting was the day that Jeff, Sazzad, Pushpita, Naim, and i spent with the folks in Boone County, Missouri. We have been implementing our Oversight Accounts in a number of states for a while now, but thanks to a few counties in Oregon and Missouri (along with some boards in Colorado) we are finding out how well the system works in a whole new role.

Working with counties is proving to be a very interesting challenge/opportunity in many ways.  I a lot of respects they operate […]
