How do you ensure your mental health practice stays organized?
To keep their practices running smoothly, many mental health professionals rely on general project management tools like Trello or Asana. While these can be useful services, they are not specifically designed for mental health practices. Their security might not be up-to-snuff, or they might not have the client management features that you need to keep track of your clients and their family/professional relationships.
However, when you use a practice management solution designed specifically with mental health professionals’ needs in mind, it can change everything. No more trying to make the square peg of your practice fit into the round hole of general-purpose project management tools. Instead, you have something that caters to your needs, making everything go much smoother.
Here are some of the great reasons why you should choose Owl as your practice management solution!
Save Up to 12 Hours a Month
As many mental health professionals started to work from home, they discovered they were putting in even longer hours than they were when working from the office. The line between work life and private life is more blurred than ever in 2021, and it can be tough to reclaim any time that gets lost as a result.
But what if you could free up 12 hours every month? That’s precisely what you get with the practice management features of Owl Practice. With our scheduling features, automatic customer invoicing, cloud-based interface, and industry-leading security, Owl can help you dramatically cut down on the time you need to spend managing the details of your practice. Just think about what you could with an extra 12 hours every month!
Safety and Security
Of course, saving all that time doesn’t mean a thing of your practice’s data isn’t safe and secure. Thankfully, your practice’s security is Owl’s #1 priority!
We store every bit of data on Owl Practice on our Canadian servers in Toronto. We OWN these servers, so there’s no danger of them falling into the wrong hands. All of your clients’ data, notes, financial information, and Circle of Care records are stored on these servers, and all information is encrypted using SSL when in transit between our servers and your devices.
As the servers are located in Canada, they’re protected by Canadian Privacy Laws, which are some of the strongest in the world. We are fully PHIPA and College-compliant, and no information is stored locally on your devices. All data on our servers is backed up daily, so even if something were to happen, there’s no danger of losing any of your practice’s important data!
Scheduling and Client Reminders
How often do you have clients who forget they have an appointment?
There are few things more frustrating than waiting in your office for your next client, only for them to be a no-show. Sometimes, they have an acceptable excuse, but more often than not, they simply forgot. Or maybe they put down the wrong day on their calendar.
Owl Practice can offer you a few strategies to prevent no-shows. The first is to let clients make their own appointments. Using Owl’s scheduling features, your clients can log into your Client Portal and see what days and time you’re available. If they make their own appointment, they’re much more likely to remember it in the future.
However, there’s an even better way to ensure your clients remember their appointments, and that’s with Owl’s reminders. Using the contact information stored in your clients’ profiles, Owl can send appointment reminders to ensure they’re aware of their upcoming sessions. You can schedule these reminders to go out whenever you’d like, but we would recommend a week before, the day before, and the day-of.
Video therapy has gone from a niche feature to one of our most popular, and it’s no secret why. The pandemic may have closed down mental health practices across the country, but that doesn’t mean you have to stop seeing those in need!
Using Owl Practice’s cutting-edge Video Therapy features, you can engage in virtual therapy sessions! Even better, the software is specifically designed for therapists, offering security features that you won’t find in Zoom, Skype, or other teleconferencing apps. Everything is run through our Canadian servers, so all video data is protected by the same privacy laws we talked about above.
This is just a taste of what Owl Practice has to offer mental health professionals across Canada.
