How to have clients sign treatment plans?
Answered

In the state of Arizona, it is required per the Board that all clients sign off on their treatment plans and then reviewed and signed again at a minimum of 1 year. In SimplePractice how can we have clients sign treatment plans? We are really freaking out on how to do this as this could be a game changer for us in switching services if we cannot have them sign them. Thanks for any help.

    Hi Tony, there are a few different ways that our customers get signatures on treatment plans. One option is to print the treatment plan, have the client physically sign it, then scan it back into the SimplePractice file. Another is to add a Consent Form that can be sent through the Client Portal called a Consent to Treatment Plan form. This can be sent directly through the Portal for signature for a paperless experience for your client.

    I have looked every where for this document you called Consent to Treatment Plan form and I cannot find it. Can you tell me where it is?

    Hi Tamara, SimplePractice does not currently provide a Consent to Treatment Plan form. I'd recommend checking with your legal and regulatory authorities to confirm that this process would work for your practice, and for sample forms or ideas for wording this form.
