Progress Notes Can Create the Foundation

Experts says that clinical documentation – such as therapy notes taken during or just after a client encounter – plays a critical role in measuring quality of care. They provide a foundation for measuring and therefore improving care for both individuals & groups. Electronic progress notes make it more efficient for clinicians to produce the documentation and easier for administrators to study it. Here’s how:

Automating the progress note documentation process makes running reports significantly easier than when aggregating the data from paper records, because all the data is already centralized and stored in a digital format. While there are many electronic note programs available, a practice management suite EHR includes other capabilities in addition to progress notes, such as client scheduling, HR functionality, and automated billing.

This is because enterprise-level suites are able to capture more centralized data per client encounter, thereby making it possible to provide a greater selection of reports without requiring duplicate data entry from the user.

Top Mental Health Progress Notes Vendors

Gaby Loria, market researcher at Software Advice – a place where buyers can compare therapy notes software – just published a new guide to top Electronic Progress Notes Software, and PIMSY was one of the few vendors featured!

PIMSY Progress Note

The PIMSY progress note can be easily accessed right from the provider’s calendar and offers a variety of control & security settings, configurable to your specifications. You can easily determine which bill codes your staff has access to, what criteria must be satisfied to release a note, and more.

This means that the note template is customized to your requirements, presenting clinicians with format options, such as text-heavy narrative notes or completing program-specific forms. The PIMSY Team can set these customizations for you – or give you the tools to do it yourself. You can even automatically populate your own Word documents with data from the client’s chart with PIMSY’s new Automatic Form Filler

Detailed Practice Management Reporting

From the progress notes and other agency protocols, PIMSY generates reports that provide data such as:

  • how many times a client no-showed or cancelled
  • the number of notes created to date with a particular provider and billing code
  • which clients have not been seen in a particular time period
  • all the documents uploaded for your client (including insurance card, signature, etc)
  • all of the authorizations associated with a client
  • a detailed list of all of the payments and charges made on a client’s account
