Therap National Conference QA tools Presentation: User Presentation, 2016 Therap National Conference

Josh-Dezurik-form-Dungarvin,-MN-151112Like most companies using Therap, Dungarvin spent a tremendous amount of time and effort rolling out Therap. However, once Therap was rolled out to the programs, there was a question of what do we do with this massive amount of information that we are collecting each day. There are countless reports that can be reviewed, but there is only so much time in the day and the sophistication level of each user varies greatly. To tackle this issue Dungarvin began developing a Quality Dashboard using Therap data to monitor key service elements. This Dashboard tool has now been largely completed and Dungarvin is starting to see the effect of leveraging the information. This session will cover the Dungarvin Quality Dashboard tools and demonstrate the ability to meet the needs of a diverse audience while still producing actionable results for multiple organizational levels. Additionally Dungarvin and Therap began a partnership to develop these tools on the Therap Business Intelligence platform. With this joint venture these tools can also be a window into what the business intelligence tool will provide. You’ve already spent the time entering the information into Therap, now see what insights this information can provide through analytics.

This session will provide a quick overview/explanation of the tools as well as time for Q & A.

Angelique-McCain-&-Brian-Roussin-from-Life-Works,-NY-151102Do you want to minimize risk in Federal audits by having an accurate and paperless record of staff schedules? This training goes over how to set up the schedules module at your agency.

Angie & Brian will be doing an overview of the schedules module and how our agency uses the Therap calendar for all schedule communication. They will also set up templates and weekly schedules and show how to track hours across the agency and not just by program.

Using TMS to Track Individual Specific Training: User Presentation, 2016 Therap National Conference

Los-PositosEarly-InterventionTobosa-Developmental-Service-151029Learn how to use the TMS System to track staff trainings on Individual Service Plans, Therapy Plans, CARMPS, etc. This training will cover from assigning the staff to the individual/class all the way through uploading their certificates for tracking purposes.

One of the presentations that we feel that other Therap Users would significantly benefit from is “Using TMS to Track Individual Specific Training”. This continues to be a cumbersome task in this field and finding a solution that works as a means to track these things is few and far between.  We have a system, using the TMS Module that works for our organization, Tobosa Developmental Services, and feel that it would greatly benefit other organizations. We presented on this at both the 2015 National Conferences  and 2015 NM Regional Conferences and received volumes of feedback that it was an issue for many other agencies.

Before Therap, “The Struggle Was Real”!: User Presentation, 2016 Therap National Conference

Bonnie-Sorrells-from-Ouachita-Industries,-Inc.-AK-151027The struggle is REAL! Paper documentation is a thing of the past; get on board with the Therap Program! We did and we are beyond satisfied.

The discussion will chronicle our paperless journey from poorly written documentation to quality documentation that is HIPPAA compliant and easily retrievable. Lastly, this presentation will highlight the results of audits pre-Therap and post-Therap.

I will have a presentation with examples of how we collected and prepared our old documentation (on paper) parallel to documenting within Therap. For example, I will highlight daily documentation issues prior to Therap such as, paper documentation lacking date and time stamps and verification of completion; the struggle of communicating between departments, and the learning curve of my staff. Additionally, I will highlight the importance of utilizing your Therap trainer during each phase of implementation. I want to let everyone know how helpful our Therap Trainer has been; how no one has just left us hanging. Overall, we have been “live” since November 1, 2014; and I want to note that in less than one year, we as an agency are leaps and bounds beyond our initial paper “struggle”.
