TNC 2014

THERAP  wrapped up it’s 2014 National Conference in Kansas City, MO last week. Every year the conference improves from the year before. From my perspective, this year seemed to be much better attended than the last few years. I think moving things from year to year is a smart move. I am glad I got to meet with the other certified trainers and look forward to working together on Moodle… until THERAP decides to develop their own distance learning module.

Therap Access to Qualified Persons/Outside Entities

Hello everyone!

Hope you are all having a wonderful fall. I have been especially busy with reporting and Therap data over the past few weeks. This week I’ve been compiling a procedure for family/guardians and outside entities (like pharmacists) to receive access to Therap. What an undertaking! So many questions, so few answers,  and I faced the additional challenge of incorporating our IT department’s policies and procedures into this one as well. I’ve used the information gained from prior Therap conferences and webinars to create the process, so hopefully it works with only a few tweaks (I’m sure there will be at least a few)!

Anyone else implemented access for outside entities to Therap? Any tips that you have found? In particular, do you only grant “View Only” access? What about SComm’s – any issues or do you even allow them?

Oh, by the way, I spent a week down in Baja California Sur Mexico in September – thought I would share a pic I took – can’t wait to go back!

Thanks,

Lorelei

Buffalo Conference

I’m here in Buffalo for the conference. I’m hoping to get some information on CCHIT and how other agencies are utilizing the features. & hopefully I will learn a bit more about the certified trainer blogs. I’m new to using a blog Emoticon showing smiley face

TMS Update

Nice! One of the problems we had is that when someones account was inactive, no one could see it unless the Provider Administrator reactivated the account. This required a call to reactivate, and a call to deactivate. Now users have the ability to look up inactive users, which is an amazing resource  when dealing with employees that may have switched positions in the agency, or sadly, placed on leave for one reason or another.

Another new change in TMS is the ability to add certificates individually for each class session participant. Between their ability to access their own training profile and certificates for trainings, employees have full access to their training information. Yet another great time saver!

Thank you, Nahar!

I would just like to give a big Thank You to Nahar for the Nebraska ICF GER report – this was a joint effort between the State Department of Health, Mosaic, BSDC and Therap that should improve efficiency for both the agencies and the state surveyors. Thanks again!

Did I mention that Therap staff ROCK??? You are all great to work with!

Tornadoes and Therap

This week’s massive tornado in Oklahoma has affected so many people – my family included. Growing up in Nebraska, I am not shocked to see a tornado at least a few times each year, and know what to do when severe weather threatens. However, as I was reviewing some IDF’s in Therap this morning, it brought to mind the importance of having good, quality data that can be accessed whenever something happens. Many people remember (and still have) the big massive notebooks with all individual information. As we move to Therap, we need to remember that the information in Therap is just as important, if not more important, than the information in physical form. Therap should be the system of record, and information should be as complete and accurate as possible. As I looked at some IDF’s this morning that contained only the name and birthdate, it brought concern that in an emergency situation, their Emergency Data Form would be useless. Being a type 1 diabetic myself, I can’t imagine what would happen to me if no one had my information and I was unable to speak.

So, along with fire drills and disaster preparedness, make sure that the information in the IDF for all active Individuals is as complete and accurate as possible – you never know when it may be needed by people other than you!
