The current "must have" feature on many therapists' wish list is customizable forms. If you're not familiar with the concept of a customizable form, it's an app, or a section of a larger app, that allows the therapist to create online forms to replace the paper forms they normally use in their practice: their intake forms, informed consents, HIPAA agreements, Good Faith Estimates, Depression Inventories - whatever they typically use. Once the digitized forms are created, they can be securely sent to their patients, who fill them out, esign them (if requested), and send them back to the therapist.
Were you surprised when you first heard about the "No Surprises Act"? We were. I'd like to be able to tell you that we had been actively tracking and planning for this legislation since it was first issued on October 7, 2021. Unfortunately, that's not the case. However, we got lucky because we were already working on a new tool called Custom Forms which, when it launches (est. Feb 2022), will work beautifully in helping you comply with this bill in ways that are easy, HIPAA compliant, and give you a significant amount of automatic documentation and tracking.
