Medical and social history

Therap’s Individual History summarizes a person’s Individual’s medical and social history on one page. This module aggregates the necessary information from Therap’s Health Tracking, Allergy Profile, Diagnosis List, Medication History, Immunization and Infection modules to provide a comprehensive view of Individual’s medical history.

In addition, the module tracks details on an Individual’s social and family history along with annotations and assessment plans. It also enables a brief view of an Individual’s present medical condition assisting care providers in planning and executing care plans.

Drug-Allergy and Drug-Drug Interaction

As a part of the work towards CCHIT compliance, enhancements have been made to Therap Allergy Profiles and Medication History to show drug-allergy and drug-drug interactions in these two interlinked forms. If there is a chance of an allergic reaction or an adverse reaction due to medication, the information is highlighted in prominent red fonts so that they have less chance of being overlooked.

allergy profile

When a new allergy is added, the system checks it against active medications and issues a warning if there is a chance of an adverse reaction.

allergy profile

Again, if an active allergy has a conflict with an active medication, users are shown a warning.

Medication history

Drug-allergy information is also shown on the Medication History page. In addition to drug-allergy interactions, drug-drug interaction information is also shown.

New in 2012.0 – Medication Reconciliation

In version 2012.0, Therap is bringing out a new module to track individual Medication Reconciliation.  The module will track whether that medication reconciliation has been completed at the time of admission, discharge and each change in level of care during facility stay. The module will provide the ability to capture a signature or the User ID and the date stamp as per the CCHIT requirements.

While adding reconciliation on the form, the application offers flexible options for users to select the reconciler’s name from the user list, as well as physicians and Registered Nurses’ list pulled in from contacts. Users then include the reconciliation date, specify active duration, attach additional documents and relevant comments.

The introduction of the Medication Reconciliation module (along with Medication Profiles, Individual History and Care Plans) is consistent with Therap’s goal to achieve CCHIT compliance by mid 2012. For more information on Therap’s CCHIT Compliance Plan, please refer to our CCHIT Requirements page.

Care Plans in Therap 2012.0

Among the applications we have recently released in beta (due for production release in mid January) is the Individual Care Plan module. This is one of the applications we have developed to meet our CCHIT goals – we plan on being fully CCHIT compliant by mid 2012.

As the name suggests the module is designed to more efficiently document and manage individualized care plans by tracking problems, goals, and approaches to meet those goals. Notable application features include –

  • The ability to add review comments and team meeting notes
  • Ability to discontinue care plans once goals are achieved
  • Ability to create and publish Care Plan Templates for approval and save the templates in a Global Template Library
  • Notifications for Care Plan Template authors when care plan templates are published

For further details please see our user guides on Individual Care Plans. Please note that these are currently in progress and are subject to change.

You can also try the beta application which is currently available online. While you are doing that, please send us your feedback so that we can further improve these for you.

Towards CCHIT: New modules expected in January

As you probably know, Therap is working towards CCHIT compliance by mid January, 2012.

Existing and enhanced features such as Allergy Profiles and normal range definitions with vital signs are the results of that goal. Moving ahead, we will be adding a number of completely new modules to meet CCHIT requirements. These will include:

  • Medication Profile – to display an Individual’s current medications, Home medications, Review of medications and Reconciliations under a single page.
  • Medication Reconciliation – the ability to capture a signature or the User ID and the date stamp, as per the CCHIT requirements, to indicate that medication reconciliation has been completed at admission, discharge and each change in level of care during the facility stay.
  • Home Medication – to record and to display home medications.
  • Individual History – to document and manage Individual’s historical data including chief complaints, present illness, medical, social and family history, assessment plans, physical examinations and other information.
  • Individual Care Plan – to create care plans for each Individual. Furthermore, users will be able to upload Care Plans to the Global Template Library and import Approved Care Plans created by users of other agencies.
  • Physician Information – to be able to add NPI Number, UPIN Number, DEA Number and License Number for Physician users.

These features are expected to be released in mid January, along with other modules and enhanced features in Therap’s version 2012.0.

CCHIT and Meaningful Use of EHR

CCHIT certification has gained much importance of late in setting the standards for electronic health records (EHR). No doubt you’ve been hearing about it. Put it simply, it is a standard set by an independent non-profit which has been approved by Approved by the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC) of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).

With a goal to be CCHIT compliant Therap electronic health records now support medical diagnoses, advanced directives, vital sighs (with normal range definitions) and allergy profiles. Also work is in progress for Consent And Authorization Directive, Patient History, Medical Reconciliation, Administrative/External Clinical Documents (privacy policy, release information, faxes, referral authorizations, consultant report etc.). The plan is to be fully CCHIT compliant by 2012.

If you have questions regarding CCHIT compliance and meaningful use of EHR, a good place to have them answered would be Therap’s regional conference in Kissimmee, Florida on December 6-7, 2011. In addition to discussing CCHIT and EHR, the event will have regular discussion and training session for existing and prospective users of the Therap system. You can learn more about this event at https://www.therapservices.net/conferences/.
