Developmental Disabilities Software announces Safe Harbor Self-Certification Compliance

Therap Services Home and Community Based Services Software Meets Online Privacy Protection Requirements.

Therap Services announced its compliance with the U.S.-EU Safe Harbor framework. Therap’s developmental disabilities software complies with HIPAA and Safe Harbor security and privacy requirements for individuals, families, providers and government agencies. The self-certification includes Therap Services on the list of participating organizations for the Safe Harbor Framework, which is developed by the U.S. Department of Commerce.

Therap’s Home and Community Based Services software has certified that it adheres to the Safe Harbor Privacy Principles of notice, choice, onward transfer, security, data integrity, access, and enforcement. The development of the Safe Harbor framework is a result of the European Commission’s Directive on Data Protection. This Directive prohibits the transfer of personal data to non-European Union countries that do not meet EU standards for privacy protection.

Therap Services Developmental Disability Software ensures privacy and security in the storage and transmission of information. Case management information entered by service providers and government agencies regarding incident reports, medication administration records, or individual service plans for a person with intellectual disabilities receive reliable and secure access over the Internet. Therap’s patented software gives HCBS agencies the ability to specify caseloads and roles of authorization.

Richard Robbins, Therap C.E.O said, “European based agencies can use Therap’s system with the comfort that our security and data protection is in compliance with the Safe Harbor regulations.”

Therap’s HIPAA, ARRA and HITECH compliant Developmental Disabilities software applications are widely used in home and community-based services (HCBS) and other ID/DD provider settings for documentation, communication and reporting. The web based system by Therap provides person centered planning and assists with case management and eligibility assessments for support providers and state organizations working with developmental disabilities. Secure applications offered by Therap include individual support modules such as incident reports, medication administration records (MAR), behavior tracking, case management, individual service plans and goal tracking, health records, supported employment notes, nursing notes and progress notes among others. Therap also offers staff support for employee training management by certified trainers, individual budgeting and work scheduling as well as billing solutions including service authorizations, attendance and Medicaid claim tracking modules.

Due Medication in Medication Administration Records

In addition to the monthly grid, Therap Medication Administration Records (MAR) now support a ‘Due Medication’ list which lists all medications scheduled to be administered during the day.
