Developmental Disabilities Software Conference for Nurses

Focus on EHR from Developmental Disabilities Software Leader for Healthcare Professionals

WATERBURY, Conn., May 18, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Developmental disabilities software leader Therap Services is hosting a conference focused on national healthcare/nursing in Albuquerque, New Mexico, from June 1-2, 2011.

The conference will offer special sessions for providers in New Mexico, working with the Developmental Disabilities Supports Division (DDSD). There will be interactive demonstrations and training on Therap's electronic health records (EHR) and case management tools for comprehensive health assessment (eCHAT), medication administration assessment (MAAT) and aspiration risk screening. Participants will also learn about Therap's electronic health passports, which contain emergency details of individuals such as personal profiles, contact information, medication history, consent information and diagnoses.

There will be parallel sessions, covering Therap's other electronic health records including medication administration records, appointment records, lab test results, medication histories, vital signs, height/weight, blood glucose reports, immunizations and seizures reports.

"This event will be of particular interest to nurses and other health care professionals serving people with developmental disabilities in New Mexico and around the country," said Justin Brockie, Chief Operating Officer at Therap. "This is not only an opportunity to learn about available EHR solutions, but also a good place to discuss future EHR technologies and related issues such as health information exchanges and CCHIT compliance."

The conference will include sessions on other developmental disabilities software by Therap such as incident reports, individual service plans, goal tracking, nursing notes, behavior tracking and personal finance management.

Therap will be hosting conferences in various other locations throughout the year, including Maryland, Oregon, Colorado and New York. Details regarding these conferences, including schedules and registration forms, can be found on Therap's website.
