Therap's Developmental Disability Software Offers Electronic Visit Verification (EVV) Tools for Verifying Community Based Services
WATERBURY, Conn., Nov. 9, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Therap's mobile application for Android and iOS addresses the growing mobility of direct support staff and offer intuitive data entry to prevent errors, provide data in near real-time, and offer ease of access for all levels of a providing agency. The mobile application provides multi-level data authentication and, coupled with GPS location tracking, serves as an EVV tool.
Therap's system is based around the theory that data should be collected and entered into the system by the person who directly provided the service as close to the point of service as is possible in terms of time and location. Therap's mobile app comes with tools that allow for GPS location tracking, electronic signatures and date and time stamps in addition to photo uploading options for recording particular activities. These features work together to help administrators authenticate service delivery through the various notification, reporting and tracking features available on Therap. As the Therap mobile app is part of a larger system that forms a comprehensive EHR, EVV data collected via the mobile app transfers over seamlessly and integrates with various modules on Therap.
Additionally, Therap implements EVV technology across the system to collect detailed information about the specific types of services being provided. The system uses a standard web browser as the foundation for data collection. Users access Therap by logging into the secure system from their devices and authenticating themselves using their unique login credentials. From this point on, the system, as part of the documentation process, collects and record necessary information based the specific actions that the user performs in the system. The system also has the ability to collect the user's IP address, thus providing information regarding the user's location during the time that staff is out in the home or community setting.
Consequently, once a user logs into the system, the system creates an electronic signature with the user's name and title which appears on all consequent Therap forms that the user utilizes for documenting services. Once services are recorded on Therap, the monitoring functions in the Therap system then allow agency administrators or supervisors to verify the delivery of home health services.
