    My organization already subscribes to Zoom.  Is there a way to add the zoom invite information to an appointment reminder?

    Hi Tamara,

    There is not an automated way to embed another software's link into our appointment reminders, however you can use our Secure Messaging feature to securely message clients any information you need.

    I also want to give a big thanks for adding a timer to the sessions, what a helpful idea! I also wanted to share some feedback about the timer. I'm noticing that the timer starts exactly at the beginning of the appointment time, which in theory works, but in practice, it doesn't help me know what the exact start and end time of the session was. For instance, if a client signs in 3 minutes late, the timer has already been going for 3 minutes and doesn't accurately portray the start and stop time. Most insurance panels require the start and end time in the progress note. I'm requesting that you consider adjusting the timer to start only when both the client and therapist have arrived to the session. Thank you!

    Hi,

     

    I am wanting to integrate Zoom with Simple Practice to where Zoom would replace Simple Practice's telehealth platform. I am currently scheduling appointments and then sending the Zoom link separately, but is there a way to have the Zoom link included with each created appointment?

    Hi Penny, I'd be happy to help. SimplePractice actually already features a fully integrated HIPAA compliant Telehealth platform that works with your Calendar and insurance billing seamlessly. You can upgrade your account to start using our Telehealth platform under My Account > Settings > Subscription Information

    Here's a guide on getting all set up: https://support.simplepractice.com/hc/en-us/articles/360001196372-Getting-started-with-Telehealth

    I would like to advocate for the following features for your video chat platform:

    *Add filters (like zoom) so we can look better on the screen :)

    *Add the time - I'd love to keep my eye on either the time or a timer on the screen during my sessions so I don't have to look away to keep track

    Thanks.

    We have found the screen sharing function inadequate when working with clients are using a tablet or smartphone. If the provider shares a window, in this case a window on the desktop of a pdf, the client sees only a small thumbnail in the top right corner. Is there a way to switch what the client sees from the provider's video to the shared window so that they will see it full screen on their device?

    I have the same question as Timothy. I want the child to be able to interact with the stimuli, not just see it. For this, I’m willing to stick with Zoom, but I notice the telepractice appointment messages sent to the client include what looks like a permanent link to the SP Telepractice session. I can edit the message but another SP link still shows up.  Here’s what I’m thinking. All I do is telehealth, so I don’t need to distinguish appointments as in-person or telepractice. For my appointment reminders, I can just use a regular appointment and include a link to my personal Zoom meeting room. The question is if that link will function as a hyperlink or not. 🤔 I’m still in the free trial so I hope I can get this to work and stick with SP for everything else.

    Truth is the zoom application provides a much better platform, with less janky backgrounds.

    Do you offer Group meeting Telehealth? I run groups composed of 12 people, can Simple practice support Group Therapy Telehealth?

    Hi Gillian, Is there an update on if the tele-health software will have group capabilities or what that time-frame would potentially be until being launched?
