NASHVILLE, Tenn., May 19, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --Therap's latest updates include state specific incident reporting sections for Tennessee Service providers. The information recorded on state specific section of Therap's incident reporting module called General Events Report (GER), then automatically generate the state's incident report which can then be printed for submission to the Tennessee Department of Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities.
Tennessee provider agencies currently use Therap to meet documentations needs, including demographics, person centered individual support plans, care plans, medication administration records and progress notes. In addition, Therap's incident reporting tool is available to Tennessee providers for documenting reportable events including serious injuries, allegations of abuse, neglect or exploitation, missing person and death. Users are also able to report instances of medication error using the DIDD Medication Error form available on the GER for users in Tennessee.
Jason Laws, Business Development Consultant at Therap Services, says, "The new state specific incident report and medication variance form allow TN providers to utilize Therap for ongoing tracking and aggregating of their incidents for Quality Assurance purposes while also meeting state reporting requirements. It's a boon for both efficiency and quality that ultimately leads to better supports for individuals with disabilities in the state."
The Incident Reporting tool on Therap's disability software is used by agencies nationally to store and track incident reports on individuals they are providing support and care to. This tool is customized to support different state requirements and allows multiple related incidents to be recorded on one form. Medication errors can be logged along with notes that serve to convey review comments to the staff who filed the original report. The incident reporting features maintain multi level access control so that only supervisors and QA directors are able to read reports containing allegations of abuse, neglect or exploitation and names of staff responsible for medication errors.
