What's New : Patient Statements and New Outcome Measures!

By TherapyNotes, LLC on July 31, 2023


Patient statements have been redesigned to better serve your clients and provide helpful detail about their payments. The new statements now include insurance payment information and clearly show which services insurance and patient payments are allocated to. Insurance information will automatically appear on your statements only when applicable. Patients will now be able to tell at a glance how much is due for each visit. Statements may include details on various transaction types, such as missed appointment charges, billable contact notes, miscellaneous charges, refunds, credits, and more. You can review sample statements in Settings > Patient Billing.


Outcome Measures

We are excited to announce three new additions to our Outcome Measures Library: the Alcohol Use Disorders Identification Test (AUDIT), the Edinburgh Postnatal Depression Scale (EPDS), and the Mood Disorder Questionnaire (MDQ). As with all outcome measures, your clients will be able to complete these on the client portal in either English or Spanish. The outcome measure will be scored and ready for your review after the client has submitted it. Completed questionnaires are saved in the client’s Documents tab and can be printed or downloaded as PDFs.

Alcohol Use Disorders Identification Test (AUDIT)

The AUDIT questionnaire is used to screen for alcohol use disorders. Potential harmful patterns of alcohol consumption can interfere with certain medications and treatments, and so it can be important to ask questions about the clients' use of alcohol. 

Edinburgh Postnatal Depression Scale (EPDS)

With the Edinburgh Postnatal Depression Scale, you can assess client symptoms of postpartum depression. The EDPS can be used for screening for potential concerns and can help optimize treatment for clients who are pregnant or have recently had a baby.

Mood Disorder Questionnaire (MDQ)

The Mood Disorder Questionnaire is a tool that can be used to assess manic and depressive symptoms. You can send this questionnaire to your clients to screen for bipolar disorder symptoms and severity.
