I am back from our first User group meeting for the year. I want to recognize and thank Jason and the rest of the staff of the ARC of Schuyler for hosting this event.  Karen from the Ontario ARC also joined us and I also want to recognize my partner for this event, Stephen Flannigan. He is very knowledgeable and a great resource.

We reviewed and discussed almost of the modules starting with T-notes and going through staff scheduler. It was great to share ideas of how people implement Therap and how agencies adjust policies in order to accommodate the changes of going from paper to electronic documentation. We also came away with several ideas to enhance specific sections as well as copies of forms that would be useful for everyone in New York, such as Nursing Care Plans. Following is a schedule for the rest of the year. I am looking forward to seeing everyone throughout the year. Also these meetings are useful for potential new customers so I invite people to bring a fellow sister agency.
