WATERBURY, Conn., Nov. 12, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Therap Services announced its compliance with the U.S.-EU Safe Harbor framework. Therap's developmental disabilities software complies with HIPAA and Safe Harbor security and privacy requirements for individuals, families, providers and government agencies. The self-certification includes Therap Services on the list of participating organizations for the Safe Harbor Framework, which is developed by the U.S. Department of Commerce.
Therap's Home and Community Based Services software has certified that it adheres to the Safe Harbor Privacy Principles of notice, choice, onward transfer, security, data integrity, access, and enforcement.

Richard Robbins, Therap C.E.O said, "European based agencies can use Therap's system with the comfort that our security and data protection is in compliance with the Safe Harbor regulations."
