2. 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

TherapyNotes does not have mobile apps for iOS or Android. To use TherapyNotes on a smartphone or tablet, you must access their site via your web browser. Then pinch and zoom the screen to find the information you need.
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.”

NATHAN RICHARDS, MA, LLPC

3. 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.

“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 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.

“I love the Secure Messaging. It allows me to securely communicate with my clients without having to buy a secure email account that would cost more money.”

SARAH ALTMAN, PHD

5. SimplePractice has customizable note and form templates

In SimplePractice, you can choose from a full library of note and form templates. These include intake forms, assessments, treatment plans, ROI forms, and more.
With our Professional plan, customize any of these templates to suit your practice. This is great for creating custom forms and questionnaires to reuse, and is a great timesaver for practitioners.

Creating forms in TherapyNotes takes longer
