SACRAMENTO, Calif., Feb. 17, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Kevin Dierks, Therap Regional Director-Pacific Rim, said "Therap is pleased to announce a major milestone in our long history.  We have been providing EHR services to California Department of Developmental Services (DDS) agencies to better serve people with intellectual and developmental disabilities for 10 years."

In California, Therap supports documentation records of over 20,000 individuals with developmental disabilities who receive services from over 100 Regional Center Vendors.  Over 25,000 California users login to Therap to document daily services and supports and meet recording requirements.

Therap helps meet documentation requirements for California Title 17 regarding Early Intervention Services and Community Services as well as Title 22 requirements for the California Department of Social Services Community Care Licensing Division. Therap also helps Developmental Disabilities vendor agencies meet California State and Regional Center requirements.

Dierks added, "In fact, we are working directly with DDS and Regional Centers to improve and track Special Incident Reports (SIR).  Over half a million data record entries are being documented in Therap every month in California.  Intellectual disabilities providers are tracking individual outcomes and progress on Individual Program Plans (IPP) and Individual Service Plans (ISP) goals. Therap is aligned with the goals of CMS and the policy changes happening across California."

Therap helps Long-Term Services and Supports (LTSS) agencies improve the quality of their documentation, communication, and outcomes for the people they support.  Developmental Disabilities software features include Individual Program Plans (IPP), Individual Service Programs (ISP), and Special Incident Reports (SIR).

Therap meets California's ISP standards. On Therap, the individual program planning process is digitized and secured electronically and captures daily service data entered by staff members.
