One of my goals at the Therap national conference was learning more about running reports and learning how other agencies were utilizing them to analyze data more efficiently than we are (were!).  After attending a couple of the “ISP data reports” and “Using Excel and Pivot Tables” sessions,  I learned that there are far more reporting possibilities than I realized.

We have already begun using Excel and pivot tables to analyze ISP and behavior data tracking, and soon we will be training all management and self-assessment staff on how to utilize those and other Excel reports during the self-assessment process.   Not only will this allow us to get a tighter grip on our documentation, but will also save time, which none of us ever have enough of, right?

We are all excited to dive in deeper, and to start reaping the benefits.  It has been fun bringing back helpful solutions and sharing them with staff.  So, thank you Therap, for making me look cool!   Ok, maybe it was Therap that looked cool…
