When you’re running your own private practice, you don’t have time to spend on endless email chains or playing phone tag. And with SimplePractice, you don’t have to. See how the secure Client Portal makes it easy to communicate with your clients and for them to manage their care.
Streamline your Client Communication
A secure client portal gives your clients a centralized location to securely share and receive documents, communicate with you via messenger, and pay their invoices. Every SLP needs a secure system to protect sensitive PHI and effectively communicate with your clients and any family members or caretakers involved in their care. SimplePractice is a perfect solution for an SLP in private practice because it’s 100% HIPAA-compliant and HITRUST-certified.
Gone are the days of cluttered filing cabinets and money spent refilling ink cartridges. When you run a paperless private practice with SimplePractice, you can securely send documents to your clients and families from anywhere, with just the click of a button. New clients—and even a designated caretaker or parent—can complete intake paperwork and sign documents electronically before a first appointment through the client care portal, which can improve communication and save you both time and money. SimplePractice allows you to upload these PDFs and other materials ahead of time, so you can prep for your upcoming appointments with ease.
Clients can also easily upload important documents to their secure client portal, making it easy to share with their clinician such as past evaluations, medical records, IEPs, or insurance cards and information.
Send Secure Messages from Anywhere
Effective communication skills are key to building a partnership with clients and their families. A client communication management system can help you facilitate collaboration for a client’s goals and progress in therapy. A HIPAA-compliant method of client communication protects client confidentiality and your practice. An EHR with an integrated portal for secure communication allows you to get in touch with your clients to coordinate care.
Whether you’re working in the office or driving to your next client’s house, you need a quick and secure way to communicate with your clients. Contacting clients or family members has never been easier—you can send a secure message from their computer, or on the go using the mobile app.
Collect Payments Online
Spend more time with your clients during your sessions, and less time managing billing for your practice. You can streamline your client communication and send their invoices directly to their client care portal when their payment is due. Then your clients or parents can securely store and make payments with a debit, credit, HSA, or FSA card. Plus, all past invoices and other billing documents can be easily accessed and viewed in one secure location.
You can also save time and energy by automating your billing process. SimplePractice automatically generates your billing documents, and will automatically send invoices, superbills, and statements to the client portal for you.
Simplify Online Appointment Requests
A client care portal with an online booking feature like SimplePractice eliminates the need for countless emails back and forth or hours spent trying to get a parent on the phone. Online Booking allows clients and families to view and manage their upcoming appointments, and gives you the control you need to efficiently run your practice. Viewing a list of appointments in one place ensures that attendance isn’t a barrier to your client’s progress in therapy.
SimplePractice’s online booking gives you the ability to control your schedule while growing your practice. You can easily manage your availability and choose which services are available to book at times that are convenient for you. And you have to approve or deny every request that comes through, so you always know exactly what’s on your calendar. Whether your private practice offers free 15-minute consultations, early intervention services, or specialized augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) evaluations, online booking helps you spend less time scheduling and more time improving your client’s communication skills.
