The Best Practice Fusion Alternative for Mental Health

By TherapyNotes, LLC on March 22, 2018

Following an agreement to sell to Allscripts, Practice Fusion will move away from a free, advertising-supported subscription model to a traditional paid subscription, reportedly a monthly fee of $100 per clinician. With over 100,000 users ranging in disciplines from cardiology to dermatology, Practice Fusion has been a popular choice for a range of providers looking for a free, usable EHR. However, the shift from free software to a paid subscription has incited many providers to begin searching for cheaper and potentially more specialized alternatives. Learn why TherapyNotes™ is the best Practice Fusion alternative for therapists, counselors, psychologists, and other mental health specialties. 

The Best Practice Fusion Alternative for Mental Health - TherapyNotes


Designed for behavioral health

For just $59/month for your first clinician plus $30/month for each additional clinician, enjoy a full-featured, robust practice management solution designed specifically for mental health, a refreshing alternative to Practice Fusion's medical focus. With TherapyNotes™, all of the features you need to manage your practice with efficiency are fully integrated in a single software solution that you can use anywhere. Your client records, scheduling, notes, and billing are connected and streamlined without extraneous features and fields that don't apply to mental health specialties.


Easy-to-use, SOAP-based documentation

Like Practice Fusion, TherapyNotes™ uses SOAP-based documentation, reducing the learning curve necessary to switch. Our note templates were specifically designed for psychologists, psychiatrists, therapists, counselors, and clinical social workers by a clinical psychologist based on exhaustive research and feedback from our customers.

TherapyNotes™ offers powerful note templates for treatment plans, intake notes, progress notes, psychological evaluations, and more and include easy-to-use dropdowns and checkboxes as well as text fields for clinically rich, person-centered documentation. Relevant details automatically pull forward from the appointment and previous notes to limit data entry errors, and our built-in ICD-10 diagnosis code search allows you to easily add diagnoses without memorizing the DSM-5.


Fully integrated billing

Unlike Practice Fusion, there's no need to pay for an external billing service. With TherapyNotes™, all of the billing features you need to manage your practice are fully integrated, creating a seamless experience from appointment to claim submission. Integrated clearinghouse features are included with your subscription, allowing you to easily submit claims to and receive updates from over 2,000 payers nationwide. With electronic insurance claims, assisted ERA payment posting, billing reports, optional credit card processing, and more, TherapyNotes™ helps you save time and get paid faster.
