Our Providers always ask us what is the best software for Mental/Behavioral Health Practice. Before sharing which three Softwares are best for your practice to let’s focus on basic requirement of any practice software. Mental health software can be used by practices or clinics of any size, as its functionality can vary from basic to robust. The software also helps practices and clinics become more paperless, efficient and focused on providing the best possible patient care. Some medical tools that mental health software can integrate with—to buff up their feature sets—include medical billing software, EHR software, medical scheduling software, LIMS software, and pharmacy management software.
Mental health software bridges the gap between standalone or general health care solutions, which may not be able to provide all the functionality a practice needs, such as the provision of psychiatric SOAP notes templates or an ONC-ATCB-certified EHR. With mental health software, therapists, physicians, and other behavioral health professionals can simplify both their front-office and patient-facing workflows, ensure compliance with code and industry regulations, and enable interoperability.
According to E2E Medical Billing Services, following three Softwares are really good and as per your practice size you can choose any one of the following:
TherapyNotes is a cloud-based mental/behavioral health software system that includes electronic health records (EHR), a patient portal, patient scheduling, and medical billing. The solution is suitable for practices of all sizes, including those with multiple locations or with providers who need access outside the office.
TherapyNotes provides access to several types of specialty note templates for various types of medical practices such as psychotherapy, psychiatry, and behavioral health. Using TherapyNotes, medical professionals can create and customize treatment plans, progress notes, psychological evaluations, termination notes and more.
The solution also includes a billing module, which gives providers the ability to create statements and billing reports. The credit card processing module lets users enter/swipe cards directly into the system and save card information for future transactions. Users can create recurring appointments, set staff work schedules and send appointment reminders to the patients directly from the system. TherapyNotes is an HIPAA-certified application and complies with PCI standards for data security. All data is stored in a fully encrypted SAS 70 Type II certified data center.
Therabill is a HIPAA- and ARRA-compliant cloud-based practice management solution for mental health and speech therapists. With Therabill, providers can submit billing claims, manage schedules, enter treatment notes and maintain patient information.
