Wiley Treatment Planner

Wiley Provides Evidence-Based Treatment Solutions

Wiley is ideal for therapists who want to make sure each and every one of their treatment plans prioritizes clients. The extensive menu of suggestions includes research-based treatment options that are customized to a specific diagnosis. Additional details are added for behaviors, goals, objectives, and interventions to create a treatment plan that’s completely tailored to each client’s individual needs. 

The Wiley Treatment Planners are excellent by themselves in order to give direction, articulation, and effective communication both to myself and my clients. It’s not just about why we’re doing what we’re doing, but how we’re doing it in a way that’s easy to understand.

SimplePractice customer Jason Levin, LCSW, is a major advocate of Wiley not only for its convenience, but also for its benefits to the client. “The Wiley Treatment Planners are excellent by themselves in order to give direction, articulation, and effective communication both to myself and my clients. It’s not just about why we’re doing what we’re doing, but how we’re doing it in a way that’s easy to understand,” says Levin. “I can’t endorse them enough!”

Ira Bilofsky, LCSW, is a SimplePractice customer who actually used Wiley Treatment Planners long before it became an online tool. Fortunately, he’s found the transition to using Wiley on our platform to be quite simple. “I used Wiley Treatment Planners in book format, then on disk format, and it was a natural progression for me to follow it with SimplePractice,” he says. 

Bilofsky says that although he’s used many treatment planning formats over his 30-year career, he’s found that Wiley is his top choice due to the benefits for the client. “Wiley Treatment Plans are always editable, so they can be changed to meet the demands of the patient. Having that document in hand, I believe, helps the patient to stay on track with treatment.”

And although the treatment plans are standardized to a point, there is plenty of room for individualization as needed. As Levin points out, “The verbiage is great, and if I don’t like what’s written, then I can always tweak or edit before signing off on it. The language itself is so important in case of audits, and helps articulate to the client goals that may be instinctive for the clinician.”

Wiley Creates Error-Proof Documentation

Therapists have to be incredibly organized when it comes to their paperwork. Whether it’s for reimbursements through insurance companies or undergoing an audit by a review agency, this kind of documentation has a critical impact on the success of any practice.

The best parts about Wiley are the drop-down menus and the speed of completing an insurance-accepted treatment plan in seconds. When I’ve used Wiley, I’ve never had a treatment plan denied by insurance.

Fortunately, Wiley Treatment Planners with SimplePractice streamline this process to provide error-proof documentation for insurance and audits. Wiley uses specific DSM-5™ diagnosis codes and other paperwork must-haves to satisfy the requirements of insurance companies as well as state and federal review agencies.

Those benefits aren’t lost on Bilofsky. “The best parts about Wiley are the drop-down menus and the speed of completing an insurance-accepted treatment plan in seconds. When I’ve used Wiley, I’ve never had a treatment plan denied by insurance.”

As for protection against audits, Levin has found Wiley to be essential for protecting his practice. “This service is, once implemented, irreplaceable. Giving myself such a simple way to create treatment plans that will hold up against ever-increasing audits is invaluable.”

According to licensed psychologist Gabriel Cline, PhD, using a program like Wiley can also function as a training tool. It helps new therapists while standardizing treatment documentation throughout the practice. “We train counselors and needed a good structure that would help each of them learn to quickly link treatment goals and session interventions. Wiley did this for us,” Cline explains. “For our more experienced clinicians, it improves their documentation and greatly reduces the amount of time it takes to complete their paperwork.”

Wiley Saves Time

SimplePractice customers have access to over 1,000 Wiley Treatment Plans, with the list of options continually updated with the latest material. The planning tool on the platform is incredibly intuitive, which helps to save time with not only treatment planning but also billing, scheduling, and other administrative duties.

Wiley Treatment Planners have improved our documentation quality to better reflect the quality of our services and has increased the number of patients we can see due to the reduced time it takes to complete a comprehensive treatment plan.

Bilofsky notes that the speed of working with Wiley makes it possible to include the client in the planning process. “My practice benefits from Wiley because all of my treatment plans have a consistency to them among diagnoses. The best part is that I can build the treatment plan with the patient present because the process only takes a couple of minutes.”

For Cline, using Wiley makes it possible to help even more clients. “Wiley Treatment Planners have improved our documentation quality to better reflect the quality of our services and has increased the number of patients we can see due to the reduced time it takes to complete a comprehensive treatment plan.”

According to Levin, the time saved by using Wiley with SimplePractice enables his success as an LCSW. “I am able to spend literally hours less time doing the minutiae of paperwork, and that means more time with clients,” he says. “Not only does that help me reach and work with more people, which is the priority, it also helps the bottom line as every hour I’m working with a client is an hour of earning the money to keep the lights on. It makes a major, major difference.”
