From the Great Big Wild…

Colleen from The Arc of Anchorage did a great overview of user access today, revealing the flexibility of super roles, security profiles and a mixture of constructed caseloads. This is a good session for idea-gathering for agencies with varied needs when it comes to user access.

YouTube can be educational

YouTube is not just cat videos, you know! (Or Annoying Orange…)

Craig Buswell did a nice presentation yesterday on how his agency in Monmouth, Oregon, uses ISP Data to track behavioral concerns.

Here it is:

Health Homes :: Training for Certified Trainers

I have been scheduling sessions exclusively for Certified Trainers from various experts, vendors and just plain smart people. The latest was a session from Paul Andrew regarding a new model of service delivery being developed in Arkansas called “health homes.” Interesting stuff for sure.

Another New Yorker!

Picture of Christine Oldfield, Therap's Certified Trainer

Welcome Christine Oldfield, the Records Manager from CSDD in Buffalo, NY. She is now part of the pack of Certified Trainers running wild all over the place.

I asked her to write a little bit about herself and she is a woman of few words…which means she could be hiding something like hunting vampires in her spare time, or something like that. We will drag it out of her…Just give us some time.

This is Christine’s bio:

In 2000, I started working at CSDD in the Habilitation Services Program. I left in 2002 to work at Crisis Services for six and a half years as a case manager, working with survivors of domestic violence, elder abuse and sexual assault.  I returned to CSDD as a Medicaid Service Coordinator for nearly five years in the Parents & Youth Program.  I just recently moved into the Records Manager position.  I’m also the provider administrator for CSDD. 

Joe Pendergast is also from CSDD. We’ll see what he has to say about Christine…dragon hunter? CIA agent?…

First of 2013

The first certified trainer webinar was conducted a couple days ago by Brianne Conner and it was a very awesome introduction to Therap’s Electronic Comprehensive Health Assessment Tool (eCHAT) that was constructed originally for the State of New Mexico. It is now available for anyone who would like to get our CCHIT module.

Check it out!

Thanks, Brianne, for taking time out for us!

Welcome, Lori Sojka!

Picture of Lori Sojka, Therap Provider Administrator for Southeast Works.

This is what Lori has to say…

Hi, I am Lori Sojka, aka Therap Provider Administrator for Southeast Works.  Southeast Works is one of the smaller agencies serving the DD population in western New York, but we are expanding, and that is how we were introduced to Therap.  I have been working for Southeast for a little over three years with two of those years being devoted to the upkeep of our Therap system.

I started out at Southeast as a Clinical BOA.  The first major project I was assigned to was to put together a mass mailing to our individuals.  During this project I discovered that our agency did not have a master list of the individuals that we serve with up-to-date information (addresses, contacts, doctors, etc…),  that was accessible to all staff.  I brought up my concerns and asked what can we use to develop a system that is up to date and where everyone can see the same information??  The answer was Therap!  We have been using Therap for a little over two years now and I am very happy.  Remember: as long as the Provider Administrator is happy, then everybody is happy. (Allison’s Note: This is true.)

In my other life I am a wife and mother, aka Provider Administrator for the Sojka household.  I have been married to my husband for twenty-four years and we have two adult sons who are now on their own.  Yes, I am an empty nester!  That is, an empty nester with the exception of our two dogs, who are way more demanding than my children.

Essentially, I am very pleased with the career path I have chosen, as it is very gratifying.  I had been seeking a profession that fulfilled my need to help others and I have finally found it.  I work for a great agency and with and for great people.  I highly recommend working in this field and I highly recommend Therap.

Allison’s Note: Lori was in no way compensated for saying such nice things. ;)
