MD Sign-off on Plan of Care
Answered

How are therapists obtaining physician signatures on plans of care? There doesn't appear to be a place for MD sign-off which is required. Are you printing them off and then just drawing a place for the MD to sign-off? This seems like a no-brainer standard feature. Am I missing something?

    Hi William, in SimplePractice, there is not currently a way to add a clinician signature to a Treatment Plan. To add your signature, you can print the Treatment Plan, sign it, then scan it back into the client's chart.

    This is a legal requirement - to have both physician and clinician signature - when will this feature be added?  It is ridiculous to have to print out, scan to doctor, reprint, and then upload -
