Knowledge is Power

Ken Slavin did a nice overview of changes within HIPAA and HiTECH, as well as reviewing the meaning surrounding CCHIT’s and ONC’s definitions of EHRs.

Getting ready for fall in CT

I have to admit that I am very “reserved” (a little shy) when it comes to blogging and hosting webinars.  This is definitely obvious from the date of my last blog (almost one year ago to date).  I am committing myself to get a lot better and overcome this.  As it is the same time of year as my last post, rereading that one really shows how routine things can be.  I am once again getting ready for my sons birthday as well as the CT Therap Conference in Meriden next week.  This is the absolute best time of year in CT in my opinion-summer humidity is ending and fall is right around the corner.  Apple and pumpkin picking, long sleeved shirts and chilly nights.  Some of the great things that I hope never change.

As for the company I work for (WILA), we have advanced in our use of Therap somewhat.  We have more users on board and they are a lot more advanced in their Therap skills than a year ago.  We are currently utilizing as much of Therap as pertains to us as a smaller company, including but not limited to T-Logs, Scomms, GER’s, ISP Data and Programs, TMS, Health Tracking and other Therap “staples”.  We are not using IPOP’s, MAR’s or time tracking yet but hopefully they will be included in our near future endeavors.  The benefits of Therap are more than obvious for all of our staff.  The nurses see a lot of the benefits with Health Tracking and the ease of communicating updates/changes with all of the staff.   Therap allows for new staff to get to know our clients from different view points as well as track their health/behaviors/activities a lot more efficiently than ever before.  Therap has been a great advancement for us and I personally look forward to all that it will bring us in the future.

Hopefully I will see some of you at the CT Therap next week, especially as I will be hosting 2 classes during the conference!

P.S. Allison…I blogged!!!!

Save Time With Health Care Report

One of our managers commented on the helpfulness of Therap’s Health Care Report tool. She remarked that she had experienced problems with her staff  not correctly posting follow-ups to medical appointments. Typically they would enter remarks in the ‘comment’ section instead of the ‘results’ section.  The Health Care Report makes it easy to check this.

Under Health Tracking select Report and then Health Care Report. Select an individual from the drop down menu and enter a date, for example the past week or month.  You can select just appointments or add a variety of other Health Tracking report features.  Clicking on the report button quickly gives you an array of information in summary form. In the case of the appointment follow-up information, if the ‘results’ section is blank, it indicates that staff either did not enter results, or entered them in the comment section (vs results).

The Health Care Report feature is very fast, very convenient, very cool.

…in short, “typically Therap.”

Feeling Behind

One of the things I truly value about Therap is the community of support it can provide. Therefore, my monthly blog post this time around is a short vent about Therap use in NM.

In NM we are mandated users on the following things: GER, eCHAT, two other custom form medical screening tools, and most components of health tracker. While I love using GER, and the medical assessments are working fine…HT is another story. We are so behind all the time with HT. It is difficult to implement with the direct support because they just aren’t in the system enough to get comfortable with everything. We are mostly using Therap to duplicate and store paper with the HT functions; that is time consuming.

I wish NM would purchase the use of T-logs for the providers. Then we would have out staff in there at least daily. The continued use would reinforce the use of HT and make it easier to navigate. Maybe I just haven’t discovered the right work flow to keep all the health information current.

Anyone else out there using HT from a more centralized approach, rather than direct support entry? How does this work for? Any suggestions?
