    I'd like to suggest that Simple Practice create a way for providers to remove this reminder. When the reminders are flooded with things we don't need, it makes it hard to keep track of the reminders we actually are using.

    Thanks!

    I Agree with Kelly, just above! This becomes mental noise, not necessary, and robs us of the attention that should be placed elsewhere. Can Simple Practice please prioritize removing this reminder, or making it optional in "the master settings"?

    I agree with everyone asking to remove the MSE. I am on a 30 day trial and a former software engineer. I had no idea why the MSE was just popping up with no explanation. If the solution to reminding me of something I do not want or need is: "dismiss it by clicking the X," it makes me wonder what other ridiculous "solutions" SimplePractice has. I am looking to switch from Theranest and this thread does not instill confidence.

    I am new to Simple Practice but it hasn't been simple to learn how to use.  I would also like to urge website/program developers at Simple Practice to have a setting we can use to stop the reminders for Mental Status Exams altogether rather than having to dismiss it for every. single. client. session.  I agree with the therapists and clinicians above that having to dismiss the reminder to do a Mental Status Exam each time it shows up on the Reminders list is a waste of time, focus and energy.  As a Simple Practice newbie, I'm spending tons of time learning how to locate settings, modify documents, figure out billing, etc.  Please make this change in the program a priority for your next program update. Thank you.

    I would also like to make this optional and not have a reminder.

    I also agree with this request to remove the MSE. Clinicians should be able to turn off or on reminders that are applicapble to their practice. I already do a MSE in my progress notes and do not want to be prompted for this.

    Just checking in to see if SP has any updates to this problem? The treatment plan and MSE are included in my progress note, and I do not want to receive automatic reminders about them.

    Please make the Mental Status Exam reminder optional - I'd like to turn it off for clients, instead of having to manually dismiss the reminder each time I have a client session.

    I have the same question.  Are these necessary to do?

    Hi everyone! If you don't use the MSE in SimplePractice, you can simply click the X next to the Reminder to do the MSE to dismiss it.

    So it is not necessary?  We just have to keep x'ing it out of reminders?

    Hi Angela, whether or not it's necessary to complete a MSE is dependent on your specialty's licensing board and insurance documentation requirements. However, if you don't need to complete MSEs or are completing these exams elsewhere in your practice, you can dismiss the reminder by clicking the X.

    Hi Angela, you can find the X to dismiss Mental Status Exam reminders here under Reminders.

    Gillian, I'd like to remove receiving the reminder to create a MSE. I do not want to create them, nor do I want to be reminded about doing one. How do I do this?

    Hi Sage, currently there's no way to deactivate the MSE Reminders from getting generated. After you get the Reminder, you can do as Gillian suggested and dismiss it by clicking the X!

    Does anyone know how to download the MSE?

    Can someone please look into fixing this? It is very cumbersome.
