Leading software publication predicts future success for SimplePractice’s first-of-its-kind national therapist directory

LOS ANGELES—April 8, 2021—Monarch, the newly launched national therapist directory from SimplePractice, garnered a resoundingly positive review from SoftwarePundit, a leading publication that helps businesses discover and select software they can count on, last week. 

SoftwarePundit is the only publication with an in-house team of experts that research and hand-test each piece of software they cover.

“Based on the company’s track record, we can expect SimplePractice to leverage its knowledge and resources to create an innovative, differentiated directory that adds considerable value to the mental health industry,” said Bruce Hogan, CEO and co-founder of SoftwarePundit. 

Monarch is the first national therapist directory integrated into a robust electronic health record (EHR) platform, giving therapy seekers security, ease of use, and full-service capabilities previously unheard of in mental health care.

“Monarch is designed to help remove the barriers that make the process of both getting and providing mental health care easier and more accessible,” said Ralph Zimmerman, chief research officer of SimplePractice and lead developer of the Monarch directory. “We’re thrilled with SoftwarePundit’s recognition of Monarch’s impact, and we plan to continue to exceed expectations as we build upon the platform to better meet the needs of both therapists and their potential clients.”

The independent and favorable review of Monarch follows SoftwarePundit’s listing of SimplePractice in the publication’s “Top Mental Health Software” list for 2021, with a rating of 96 out of 100, the highest score among all practice management software reviewed on the site.
