About TheraScribe

TheraScribe is an EHR (Electronic Health Record) system designed for mental health professionals. The system allows clinicians to track patient data, assessment information and results, treatment plans, and progress notes.

TheraScribe uses the Wiley Practice Planner content, by Dr. Arthur Jongsma, to help to build a comprehensive treatment plan. The clinician can use pre-written point and click progress notes, SOAP notes, and enter their own narrative progress notes.

TheraScribe has a built-in appointment scheduler so clinicians can track all their appointments, reminders, and meetings. The appointment scheduler information can be pushed to Outlook. All the information in TheraScribe can be printed in fully customizable report templates.

TheraScribe

Because I average 21 clients a week, I value any tool that streamlines or simplifies the paperwork side of counseling. The more proficient I am in navigating the program the more time I have for counseling.

Pros

TheraScribe has a highly organized procedure of progression from intake to release. They have even provided easy to use intake forms to record personal history that exactly mirrors their biopsychosocial portions of the program. Their newest release has made their clinical pathway program easier to use and more flexible than ever. Because I care for a population that often share a particular treatment plan, this feature streamlines individual entry. During the later part of last year, I experienced some software conflicts between the program and my computer. In dealing with their technical support, I was impressed with not only their quick response but their relentless efforts to make sure I was up and running. During our conversation on troubleshooting the particular issues, there was interest in future efforts on their part towards avoiding software conflicts.

Cons

As a visually impaired user, I am having ongoing discussions with ‘sTheraScribe’s programmers on making their product more compatible with screen reading programs such as Jaws & Zoomtext. At this point, it takes significant effort on my part to navigate the program but I am hopeful for the future.

I looked a long time to find a software program that was clinical, user friendly and easy to learn.

It's very easy to use and easy to learn. The end product presentation is great!

Pros

I like the ease and the speed of creating treatment plans and writing progress notes that I can customize to meet our clients' needs. Therascribe allows our therapists to spend more time with the client. I really value not only the evidenced-based information available to create the treatment plans, but also the final presentation. Our charts look great! We are often asked which software program we use. Therascribe is user friendly -- It is easy to learn and it is easy to teach the staff how to use it. I appreciate the versatility of the software. I started using Therascribe in private practice. As my practice grew into a small agency (staff of 12), Therascribe grew with the increasing software needs of the therapists and the agency. Therascribe is a good place to start -- and you will find that you want to continue with it! And finally, the technical support is invaluable, it is cost effective and you "get the knowledge that goes along with the know-how." This software was one of the best decisions...best choices... and best investments "Pipeline Counseling" has made.

Cons

I think the assessment section is too general. It is excellent for a smaller practice, however, I would like each of those sections to prompt or require more specific information be entered.

Therascribe is a good, basic system if you don't care for a lot of bells and whistles.

Pros

Gets the job done. I like that the Wiley planners can be integrated. Printing is not a difficult thing to accomplish.

Cons

I am a Mac user and this program is only Windows compatible. I use Parallels but it burns right through my battery. Not web based so if you are using more than one computer, you have to be very diligent to be sure you are using your most current database, which can be a hassle sometimes.

Review of Therascribe

Overall it’s an excellent product with professional looking documents and treatment plans. I’ve been using it since 2006. The main difference since then is the diagnosis codes. Insurance only pays for ICD 10 not DSM. So instead of paying a bunch of money to upgrade I write in the ICD 10 codes which only takes an extra few minutes.

Pros

The overall final product looks very professional. It’s fairly easy to use. It’s intuitive. I usually write the note while with the patient. I don’t write a lot just quotes. When I call for help it’s only one guy but he’s very responsive and helpful.

Cons

The initial price of $500.00 advertising this is a one time purchase. Then they offer some sort of monthly fee for maintenance and updates for ICD 10 diagnosis codes. The cost of treatment planners are half the price of the original price. I wish it had 2 components online and in computer and external drive. I still have hard copy charts which takes up a lot of space. I purchased this back in 2006 and still using from the original version. To update I have to pay another fee for ICD 10 codes.

Solid Software

There are so many companies offering services to therapists, but at a monthly cost, that I am willing to spend up front on a product if it will last longer than the monthly subscription for a similar product would cost. I have been very happy with the product. The customer service is also excellent. I email the representative who responded to my initial email and he gets back to me ASAP. I emailed him when initially setting up the software, then about purchasing additional treatment planners, and when my computer died (requiring assistance with replacement software).

Pros

The software is relatively easy to use. Once I figured out how to set up my user credentials it only took a few minutes to figure out how to go through the sections to write an assessment and treatment plan. If I have the background info ready to go I can write the assessment and plan in less than an hour. I like that I can add data fields and edit the library of choices based on the needs of my client population. For example, I work with some gender non-conforming clients and was able to add categories to the library for each of those and I was able to add objectives and linked interventions to the treatment plans.

Cons

I would like to be able to have it automatically add a line for the client to sign the treatment plan (there may be a feature for that but I haven't found it yet). I bought two additional treatment planners, the cost of those can add up.
