Therap improves the communication within an agency so that team members are aware of the overall progress and health status of the individuals for whom they are responsible for.

Data exchange between users and Therap is carried over encrypted channels. Therap Offers:

  • Time-stamped documents with electronic signatures
  • Records of activities on documents and reports
  • Multi-level access control and data security

Key personnel within an agency are granted administrative privileges in the system. These users determine the access privileges of users and manage user accounts. Privileges are set for staff according to their roles in the organization. Therap’s multi-level access control mechanism can be used to define a staff member’s level of access to view a particular record and the actions they are able to perform.
