And documenting in Therap is no exception!
Since all of the people we support in our (17) programs across Oregon are very unique, one of the things I love about Therap is the options we have- all the different ways to use T-logs, time tracking and ISP data tracking. But, with so many ways, it is important to learn the most effective and efficient documentation procedures that work across the board. Question is…how do we do that??
I’ve been asking myself that question for the past several months at least! The best answer I can come up with is…by asking questions, by listening, and by learning. Listening to staff. Listening to the people we support. Listening to what has worked for other agencies. Listening to licensors. And learning from what is said.
With 2 years under our belt (since we began our Therap implementation), we have realized the importance of streamlining our documentation, T-logs specifically. The easier it is for staff to determine how to do thier documentation, the easier it is for management and licensors, resulting in higher quality of care. That’s what it’s all about.
So, once we finalize our most effective way to ‘skin the (T-Log) cat’, we will share. Maybe it will help you determine yours.
