Amidst Challenging Work Environment, Partnership Offers Private Practice Resources
ROCKVILLE, MD – December 8, 2020 – With COVID-19 significantly impacting the practices of health care professionals, the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) today announced that SimplePractice, a leading electronic health record digital management platform for professionals in private practice, has become an ASHA Corporate Partner.
The partnership makes ASHA members eligible for an exclusive promotional offer for accessing the SimplePractice platform—where they can take advantage of an array of resources related to building and growing a practice, including telehealth; managing scheduling, billing, and paperless intakes; developing a professional website; and much more.
