No Diagnosis
Answered

I am surprised no one else has asked this yet.  What do I do if I am meeting with a self-pay client who has no diagnosis, but still wants therapy? Is there some way that I can mark that as NO DIAGNOSIS?

    Hi Daniel, I'd be happy to help with your question. You can simply leave the diagnosis field for a client blank when entering a Diagnosis and Treatment Plan. Please note that you cannot use a Wiley Treatment Plan for the client if no diagnosis is selected.

    What if such a client initially has a diagnosis, but then no longer qualifies for that diagnosis? I would like to have the diagnosis end on a certain date, leaving no diagnosis at all. Is there a way to do that?

    Hi Gretta,

    I'd be happy to help with your question. If you are continuing to have sessions with a client, and you don't want a previous diagnosis to continue to be applied past a certain date, there is a way to get these results. 

    First, you can add a Chart Note to the date at which you consider the diagnosis ended. This Chart Note can explain the situation for future reference.

    Next, click +Create New > Diagnosis and Treatment Plan. When the page comes up to add a diagnosis, change the date to the same date you chose for the Chart Note, and click the button that says "Skip to Treatment Plan".

    When the choices are presented for creating a Treatment Plan, click the option towards the top for "Back to Overview".

    The client will now have a "None Selected" diagnosis, and this is how the Diagnosis area will appear on records for future sessions.

    Please let me know if you have any additional questions, and I’ll be glad to assist you.

    Best,
