Therap can be used in community settings for documentation and communication of information in real time using laptops, tablets, and mobile devices. In addition, when support professionals visit homes of individuals or provide service in a community setting, they can administer and record medication and/or treatment, and collect service data using the Therap for Android app.

Therap is an ideal solution for Community Based Services including:

  • Community Support Services Teams
  • Vocational Programs
  • Day Services Programs
  • Supported Employment
  • Dual-Diagnosis Programs
  • Independent Living
  • Supported Living
  • Respite Care

Medicaid Audits and Quality Assurance

Medicaid audit is a quality control procedure carried out to ensure that particular services are being provided in accordance with federal and state regulations and that the documentation and billing practices demonstrates accuracy and integrity. During audits, providers are faced with a number of difficulties such as reporting decentralized service delivery and locating necessary documentation, ensuring quality and accuracy of documented information, exceeding service authorizations or failing to maximize utilization. Having a bad audit results in the loss of revenue for providers and more importantly, loss of valuable services for individuals.

Therap users go through audit with minimal, if any problems. This is because:

Service authorizations specifying services, unit rate, total amounts and expiration date are saved electronically along with a scanned copy of the original document from the State.

Service hours from program attendance records and ISP outcome tracking data are immediately reported against appropriate service authorizations.

Billing data can be easily traced back to service authorizations, and service plans.

Utilization management reports can be created to track average usage and remaining balance.

Online alerts and text messages are issued when service authorizations are about to expire or exceed given limits.

All these information is readily available online, within just a few clicks or taps. As a user once put it, – “(with Therap) you would have to ignore a lot of information to have a bad audit”.

Billing Checklist Report for NY Users

Among the array of New York specific features released with Therap 9.0, is the Billing Checklist Report. This report is generated at the end of Individual Service Plan / Individual Habilitation Plan workflow to determine whether all necessary criteria have been met before billing for a service for a person with developmental disabilities.

Billing checklist reports can be generated based on the following criteria:
– Individual Service Plans
– Community Habilitation, and
Medicaid Service Coordination (MSC)

Instead of billing, the Billing Checklist Report option has been grouped with Individual Service Plans/Habilitation Plans options in the ISP and Habilitation area on FirstPage.
