NextStep Software


For more than ten years, NextStep Solutions has offered intuitive, web-based applications to behavioral health providers. Their suite of products streamline all critical operations within a practice, directly impacting day-to-day care by simplifying and automating clinical, billing and scheduling functions. NextStep's suite of offerings are suited to a number of mental health organizations, from private practices to residential and outpatient care facilities.

Each of NextStep's applications provide outcome-driven features that help staff at every step of patient care, from intake to invoicing. By integrating together all key operations, practices can eliminate duplicate data entry and reduce errors that happen when information is transferred from one system to another. In addition, the software can be accessed from any computer with an Internet connection, so users can document care or handle billing from literally anywhere, including home, the office or on the road. 

There are four different versions of the software. NextStep Practice Pro was designed for private practices with less than 3 providers. The Plus version of Practice Pro offers many of the same features, but is better suited for mid-sized and larger private practices. NextStep MS was built for addiction programs, both outpatient and residential. Finally, NextStep PHM was designed to support both state and private hospitals that focus on patients with mental illness.

Each of these solutions includes a robust feature set that includes custom assessments, a treatment planning wizard, e-prescribing and more. Each version can be customized to support the practice's methods and requirements.

We recommend NextStep to mental health practices seeking a streamlined, intuitive solution that leads to a more successful practice and better quality of care.

It doesn't write my treatment plans for me! I hear they are developing a feature to do so in the near future.


When evaluating software to determine if it is right for your organization, make sure it is flexible enough to accommodate your needs and that the vendor is willing to work with you. It has been my experience that some companies are excellent throughout the sales process but much less so once you've signed up for service.
