Using a Tablet
Answered

Hi,

Does anyone know if it's possible to use a table and pen with the notes feature of SP so that you can take notes using a pen on the computer screen as if it were an old-fashioned clipboard and paper?

    Hi Marshaun, we have many customers using a tablet and stylus to take notes in SimplePractice. You'll need a handwriting-to-text conversion app that is compliant with HIPAA and integrates with your tablet's keyboard- that way, you can write directly into text boxes in SimplePractice and your handwriting will be translated to text. We don't have any specific recommendations for third-party apps to use for this, but be sure to ensure the third-party app doesn't send data to the cloud, and that you de-identify your notes.

    I use Nebo and I love it. I know there is another one I was looking into but I can't recall it at the moment.

    So, how do you write directly into text boxes in Simple Practice?  I have a handwriting to text conversion app.

    Hi Shelby, that depends entirely on which app you're using. Because we're not able to provide support for third-party applications, you may want to reach out to the team behind the app you've chosen for assistance.
