State-Specific GER Interfaces

Here in Utah, providers have been pushing the State to work with Therap to develop a GER interface so that information on the GER can be downloaded to the State’s documentation system.  We currently fill out a GER and a state-specific form (wish I was joking but I’m not).

The State of Utah just released their online incident reporting module and I’m thinking about how the GER will need to change to make them compatible.

  • What are other people’s experiences with State-specific, customized GERs?
  • Can Therap really design a GER to fill out all the fields on the State’s incident report?
  • Did the new GER change significantly?
  • Is there a magic button somewhere that sends the GER info from Therap to the state system?

Any insights from the Therapverse would be most appreciated!  Thanks!
