“SimplePractice has the features I need: progress notes, online booking, and easy scheduling. I love the look of it, very modern and professional. All at the perfect price point.”


2. SimplePractice has a great Client Portal

The Client Portal in SimplePractice is one of the most helpful tools for managing your private practice. From here, clients can fill out intakes, request appointments, send messages, download documents, and pay bills. It allows you greater control and flexibility over your practice. For your clients, it’s intuitive and easy to use.

No central communication hub in ClinicSource

Using ClinicSource, your clients will not have a central point from which to communicate with you. Scheduling, intakes, and messages will have to be done through email, phone, or text.

“The ease of onboarding new clients and the Client Portal are two of the features I enjoy most. Thank you for what you guys do.”


3. SimplePractice has Secure Messaging

In SimplePractice, send your clients Secure Messages through your Client Portal. These HIPAA-compliant messages are optimized for smartphones.

More secure than email or text

You can communicate via Secure Message instead of using less-secure email or text. Use it to reschedule appointments, communicate about payments, or remind your clients to bring materials to an appointment.

Secure Messaging is fully mobile, so your clients can respond quickly on their Android or iOS devices. If you’re part of a group practice, you can also use Secure Messaging to send HIPAA-compliant messages to your team.

“The video quality is great, the process is seamlessly integrated for existing SimplePractice users, and I like how well it’s managed within my calendar.”


4. SimplePractice has dedicated mobile apps for iOS and Android

SimplePractice has a modern and user-friendly web application, and mobile apps for iOS and Android.
With the SimplePractice mobile apps, you can easily streamline your daily tasks. Add, edit, or delete appointments. Create invoices and process payments. Send clients your paperless intakes. View and manage your clients’ info and contacts.

Consider mobile when evaluating practice management platforms

ClinicSource does not have mobile apps for iOS or Android. To use ClinicSource on a smartphone or tablet, you must access their site via your web browser.

This is important to think about when selecting a practice management platform. You may be running a large part of your practice from your tablet or smartphone.

“I use the mobile app all day. With SimplePractice, I can be in complete control of the client side of my business from anywhere in the world as long as I have an internet connection.”


5. SimplePractice has integrated Telehealth

In SimplePractice, you can have an appointment from anywhere when you or your clients can’t be in the office. Telehealth by SimplePractice is simple and stress-free to use. Your clients just click a link to start an appointment, there are no logins or passwords to remember.

Our Telehealth feature is fully integrated with scheduling, notes, and billing. You can easily go from calendar to appointment with one click. Importantly, Telehealth by SimplePractice is secure, HIPAA-compliant, and easy to use on mobile.
