Why SimplePractice is better than TheraNest

One, easy-to-use platform

Communicate with clients, schedule appointments, manage billing, and conduct video sessions from one login.


The Difference

Easier, simpler, smarter

SimplePractice streamlines your practice with AutoPay, automated invoicing, appointment reminders, and more.

SimplePractice has the features I need: progress notes, online appointment requests, and easy scheduling. I love the look of it—very modern and professional. And all at the perfect price point.

— Meaghan H.



Mobilize your practice, literally

Streamline your scheduling, billing, and more with the top-rated SimplePractice mobile app—available for iPhone and Android.


The Difference

Better ratings from more practitioners

The SimplePractice mobile app has a 4.7/5 rating based on 8,500+ practitioner reviews. By comparison, TheraNest’s app only has a 2.6/5 rating based on <30 reviews.

I use the mobile app all day. With SimplePractice, I can be in complete control of my business from anywhere in the world.

— Nathan R.

Get paid on time, every time

AutoPay runs a client’s card each night to save time, avoid payment conversations, and minimize unpaid sessions.


The Difference

An automatic system

SimplePractice’s AutoPay means you’re always paid for services rendered—and TheraNest doesn’t offer that.

The AutoPay feature has been a life saver. With great invoicing and billing features, SimplePractice does everything we need. I can’t recommend it enough!

— Zakk G.

Give clients the freedom of choice

New and existing clients can request their own appointments through the Client Portal—including virtual sessions.

Almost every company has a customer service department. But at SimplePractice, it’s not just a department. It’s who we are.


The Difference

A better switching experience

SimplePractice has a dedicated Switching Team that helps migrate your client data from your previous EHR.

Frequently asked questions

Here are some commonly asked questions, or read all FAQs.

How does billing for telehealth work?

When billing insurance, we recommend that you always check with the individual insurance payer to determine whether telehealth services are covered and, if they are, which codes or modifier should be used for different types of services.

It’s very important to check directly with the insurance payer because coverage for telehealth services is constantly changing.

Is SimplePractice HIPAA-compliant?

SimplePractice is HIPAA compliant and HITRUST certified. The HITRUST framework is the gold standard of security certifications in the healthcare industry. You can learn more about all the ways we keep customer and client data safe.

How much does Telehealth cost?

Telehealth is included in both the Essential and Plus Plans. If you select the Starter Plan, you can add Telehealth for only $15 per month. 

Does SimplePractice work for group practices?

Yes, SimplePractice works great for groups of all sizes. Group practices will need to be on the Plus Plan, which includes every single feature available.
