Hello everyone in the world of Therap!

A little about me:

I have been with Mosaic for 6 years now, beginning as a PeopleSoft senior developer and progressing to my current position as Quality Data Management Director. A lot of people ask me what my job is – I oversee the systems that track individuals in service and overall quality of our organization. This includes data analysis and reporting, along with functionality specifications and training of end-users. In other words – a whole lot wrapped into one! I am originally from Nebraska (born and raised), and seem to keep coming back here. I have lived in South Dakota, Ohio and Texas, as well. I went to college at South Dakota School of Mines & Technology, and actually have a BS degree in Industrial Engineering. The software industry hit big when I graduated, and I have been in that field ever since. I have a son who will be starting college next week (already???) in Wyoming, so I will probably be making a few road trips out there! In my spare time I enjoy gardening, travel, cooking/canning/preserving, and making attempts at becoming “greener”.

Here at Mosaic we are busy ramping up for our Therap implementation. Our theme is ‘Destination – Therap’, and we are excited to begin our journey. Well, actually, our journey has already begun. Our Delaware agency has been using Therap for several years now, and 5 of our Nebraska agencies started using GER’s for community-based services in April. As Mosaic’s “super admin”, I had 5 days (including the weekend) to get 600+ individuals up and running in Nebraska. It was my first actual attempt at converting individuals from our existing PeopleSoft Client Information System into Therap. I was very pleased with the ease-of-use and simplicity of the import process. I can now move an individual or an agency within a matter of minutes from PeopleSoft to Therap!

Developers from both Therap and Mosaic have been busy working on our interface between PeopleSoft Financials and Therap, and testing has been going well. The 9.1 release put a damper on our integration development timeframe, but the 9.1 enhancements are exciting to see and have made integration easier. Thanks team!

My work life is now almost totally dedicated to Therap. I am currently working on privilege matrices, provider default setup, notification profiles, training methods and work process flowcharts for Therap – to name a few.

Our first phase of implementation will consist of IDF, GER’s, T-Logs and SCOMM, with a few agencies using Appointment Tracking.

We have a long journey ahead, but one thing we are certain of – the destination is Therap!!!
