Multilevel access control mechanism provides family members with real-time information about the services and supports received.

WATERBURY, Conn., Jan. 20, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Therap's role-based access provides secure health information that can

be extended to designated agency personnel and external stakeholders, including self-advocates and family members. Allowing stakeholders access based on their role promotes efficiency and strengthens accountability and transparency through enhanced communications. Families in particular can become valuable team members when provided with enhanced tools and given agency to make informed decisions and provide relevant feedback on care and service provision.

Therap's electronic documentation software features centerpiece tools to meet the communication, reporting and billing needs of intellectual and developmental disabilities service providers. Parents and guardians, often unparalleled in their knowledge of the person but ancillary in the day to day communication in many service settings, gain valuable insight reduce communication delays by having access to documentation of such supports. Family members can access accurate and real-time information through configured user accounts within Therap's system.  Providers are able to work with families to select types of documentation for view access, or configure notifications of types of events for each user account. In this way, access to case notes, health appointments/results, service and support plans, and critical incidents along with secured communication with selected team members, all become part of notification and communication – vital tools in the decision-making process.

Additionally, family members' access to information in Therap is secured and configured to remain separate from the internal or proprietary operational information agencies rely upon.  These include staff to staff communication, training records, reporting and agency outcome measures, and internal memorandums, working notes and clinical details, all can remain internal and separate from the selected information access families request in the care of their loved one.
