Therap Services Announces Release 7.1 for the Developmental Disability Community

WATERBURY, Conn., Nov. 15 - Therap Services announces the release of version 7.1 of its integrated suite of documentation, communication and reporting applications. Therap version 7.1 will feature a new module, the Individualized Plan of Protective Oversight and Safeguards and new enhancements to existing Therap modules such as Quarterly Nursing Reports in the Health Tracking module.

The Individualized Plan of Protective Oversight and Safeguards (IPOP) module is a new addition to Therap applications and consists of generalized and residential information that is usually referenced in the Safeguards section of an Individual Plan. Safeguards are also required to be included with Individual Service Plans to ensure that when risks are taken they are done so consciously and with a view to considering the person's best interests. The Therap IPOP takes a questionnaire based approach to record both general and residential information needs.

The Quarterly Nursing Report is a new addition to the Health Tracking module that summarizes a particular individual's approved data from their Individual Data Form, General Event Reports and also from Health Tracking material such as medication history, appointments, lab test results, seizures and height/weight.

Enhancements have also been made to the following modules:

General Event Reports (GER):
o The Therap GER Portable Document Format (PDF) version now supports the Delaware state requirements.
