Nov 15, 2007, 00:00 ET from Therap Services

    WATERBURY, Conn., Nov. 15 /PRNewswire/ -- 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.
