Support has yet to explain to me why I have to check in every chart when I switch from documenting in one chart to document in another. I'll enter a new detail in one patient's chart, and then have to enter something in another patient's chart, but when I then go back to the first chart all of the recent entry is missing. Only checking the chart in and back out again will consistently save the information. This problem doesn't occur every time, and I'm always quite busy when it does. When I call TS support I'm told that they have to know more about the specific situation in order to help me, but I don't have that good a memory myself! Help topics are useless.
Saves my writer's cramp. Also typing is easier that it would be to write all of the detail now required by insurance and other regulations, with all the justification we now must provide in our notes. Using a word processor would be easier, though., eliminating all of the idiosyncrasies of TS.
Incredibly difficulty to learn for most people. NO OBJECTIVE MEASUREMENT FLOW SHEETS, which are extremely valuable to a hand therapist, measuring all those different joints, for example, and wanting to gauge progress from one visit to the next. Not enough room in the treatment section to describe complicated activities (e.g. pick up, gather in palm, and place individually in bead tray, using thumb IP extension to push out of palm). Nonspecialist oriented: lots of exercise descriptions (not all of which are correct or even understood by PTs with varying levels of experience). Confusing code selections, with duplications and omissions. Nonintuitive locations for many entries. Errors (e.g. manual muscle testing for a specific nerve: In the list of muscles there are erroneous entries -- innervated by a different nerve -- and omission). Overactive spellcheck. Won't let you add some abbreviations, and the "add" button is too close to the "change" button, so I now have in my spelling dictionary at least 3 different versions of "increase" by now When you get a new computer you can start afresh, but my typing doesn't get any more accurate, so I end up with the same 3 different spelling ... I could go on and on and on.

Perhaps the only service of its kind. It offers an original but efficient solution for matching therapists, groups, clients, and others.
It has limited functionality compared to its potential and can also be confusing to use.
Read online reviews first and also determine exactly what your needs are, then see if this service can help you.

I never knew any different until we switched to RevFlow, but Therapy Source was much clunkier to navigate for running reports, searching through patient accounts, and completing notes in a timely fashion. Their support was also a lot more difficult to reach, and when we used them for insurance verification and billing, they were less than satisfactory for both. They were use-able and do-able, but definitely not ideal.
It did allow us to change the note type after having already created the note, which was convenient, and a capability our current software does not have.
Reports. Super clunky, slow, hard to interpret, difficult to access.
Wouldn't use them for insurance verification or collections, as we had multiple issues with both.
