Therap Mobile Application for Point-of-Service Documentation

The Mobile Application on Android and iOS devices allow the service providers and agencies to enter and review data in real time. The support professionals working in the home or community can navigate service programs for the individual they help and remotely collect results and data as well as submit progress notes through ISP Data app, T-Log app, and MAR app. Moreover, supervisors working remotely can also reset passwords to facilitate seamless documentation by using Therap. The users can also collect Person Centered Data in the community setting at ease.

Program Managers and Quality Assurance Directors can monitor data recorded at the point-of-service and evaluate the quality of those services remotely.  For HIPAA compliance, photos do not get saved to the individual device, rather directly uploaded to Therap. Furthermore, an electronic signature is taken of the user submitting data every time to ensure security, accountability, and transparency. The signatures are both date and time stamped.

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.

HIPAA violations – Google’s privacy policy not private enough?

In the last few weeks there has been some concerns over Google’s new privacy policy and whether it can cause a HIPAA violation under certain circumstances.

Google’s has brought out a new privacy policy which sort of combines all of Google’s privacy policies across services into one. While it does simply things, some are concerned if this shared policy across services will result in sharing of PHI across services and will in fact, cause a HIPAA violation.

According to Healthcare attorney and consultant David Harlow, this isn’t so. In this interview with FierceHealthIT he argued that Google’s privacy is a sound one and is sufficient from a strict legal constructionist’s standpoint.

This sort of debate, nevertheless can be a little confusing for the everyday computer user at service providers, unaware of every little big thing. This would probably go double for those who are regularly submitting large volumes of PHI to an online documentation system such as Therap. They may ask themselves – “Will the information really be safe out there?”

So, lets go over the things we do at Therap to avoid HIPAA violations:

■   During product development, thorough testing is performed so that users do not have access to information for which they are not authorized. Appropriate policies are in place to deal with any such violation.
■   The location of the servers and their operational details is known only to a few key people.
■   Adequate physical security of hardware is provided.
■   The system is closely monitored for any unusual activities.
■   Firewalls, intrusion detection mechanisms and backup systems are maintained.
■   Internal password policies are set up and regularly updated.
■   Therap staff members are required to sign appropriate legal agreements.
■   Periodic awareness and training programs for staff members to handle potential risks or violations.

In addition, Therap provides the following features for the clients to minimize risks:

■   A three-field authentication mechanism that acts as an electronic signature
■   Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) is used to ensure protection of data during transmission
■   Mechanisms enabling administrators to define multi-level access privileges for agency staff
■   Option to set up password policies for agency staff
■   Inability of users to access data without proper privilege and leaving audit trails (Activity Tracking)
■   Mechanisms to let administrators to activate and deactivate user accounts as needed
■   Automatic data archiving
■   Flexible alert mechanisms over secure media
