Pros: Content is very rich and I love the check marks and the conversion into word documentafter you complete the assessment

Cons: Too many tabs with information that is not needed for a small practice. The set up of the software is a bit tedious

Our company has used this software for a number of years, and we enjoy the effectiveness it brings.

Pros: Over many years, and numerous version releases we have enjoyed the familiarity and the reliability. It is nice to not be required to "rip out and replace" every time a major release is installed. We have been able to continue work as usual, and just move on. I know that I have received excellent customer support with any questions or concerns, and I appreciate that. I feel like I am a valued customer.

Therascribe is a good, basic system if you don't care for a lot of bells and whistles.

Pros: Gets the job done. I like that the Wiley planners can be integrated. Printing is not a difficult thing to accomplish.

Cons: I am a Mac user and this program is only Windows compatible. I use Parallels but it burns right through my battery. Not web based so if you are using more than one computer, you have to be very diligent to be sure you are using your most current database, which can be a hassle sometimes.

Excellent. I have used this program since 2004. It has taught me the jargon of the discipline.

Pros: The program is organized and easy to use. The knowledgeable help when I need assistance.
Reports are made so easy to collect. Flexibility of assimilating data from different parts of program.
The regular updates. My Agreement with THERASCRIBE continues to be honored. The program is detailed and thorough. It has taught me jargon which is respected by others in the medical field.

Cons: Cannot figure out how to use the signature part to sign documents.
When I attempt to paste information into the Progress Notes section, the data disappears when I close the program and reopen. It would be so helpful to be able to cut and paste my notes, as well as diagrams.

Overall: After the original intake data is entered the program is easy to keep up to date. It has taught me the jargon of the discipline as well as short-term useful interventions. The task participation has been very useful. I can present well in many different venues.

Easy to use.

Pros: Everything I needed to develop my treatment plan, keeps track of goal/interventions and progress notes keep me focus on what I need to work on with PT.

Pros: Ease of use. Ability to edit libraries for individualizations. Formatting is practical. Session reminders are helpful.

Cons: Not MAC compatible, so I have to run a VM. This causes storage problems. When adding a new session date, and the switching screens to progress rating or progress notes, it would be great if the date stayed constant.

Overall: Less time hand writing treatment plans.

Mixed. It is easy to use for notes, but the treatment plans are not already created.

Pros: It is easy to write case notes, and enter in the session details. It appears to be secure. Customer service is mostly helpful.

Cons: Having to create treatment plans and enter in diagnostic information. I don't know if there is a glitch in my software or what. If I want to create a treatment plan for a client I have to enter in everything, including the DSM V codes.

Overall: Secure case notes.

Pros: I loved that there are checked boxes you can use and the language is used as a training tool for our counseling interns to learn more clinical language. I also love that you can run professional reports

Cons: I can't use it on my mac. I also dislike that I can't put in my own language and that I have to buy different books if I want more language to better fit a client.

Overall: Ease of training my interns and running reports.

Pros: It doesn't require a lot of technical expertise. Everything is common sense and straight forward. It has helped me become a lot more organized with my assessments and treatment plans.

Cons: I have noticed that I don't catch spelling/typing errors easily on it so I wish it had an auto-correct spelling feature.

Overall: I think the most important benefit is that it keeps me organized and helps me to focus on treatment options that I might not otherwise think of.

I have used it exclusively for clinical records for two years, have trained associate counselors.

Pros: I like the templates themselves that guide the clinician through assessments and treatment planning. I like the ability to modify treatment plans and assessments as treatment progresses without starting over. After experiencing an audit without it and another audit with it, it gives me confidence in our records system.

Cons: I find it time consuming to modify or personalize reports templates; perhaps I just haven't taken the time to explore the tutorials. And I wish it were easier to move between computers.

Overall: Complete confidence in clinical records.

Perfect for self-employed person.

Pros: I like the options for treatment planning. I like that aside from the Biopsychosocial feature, there is an area for me to write an assessment and add to the information provided.

Cons: I would like to be able to add information about the doctor on the personal information page, as well as additional fields for multiple e-mail addresses or phone numbers.

Overall: All my records are easy to access. I can chose how to print my records and I can rate how a client is doing on various objectives easily.

Pros: I like the easy navigation, the various modules so that treatment plans fit the population I serve. I also like the HIPAA log that requests and logs information about every printed record. This is an optional feature, and takes a few minutes to fill out, but assures compliance with HIPAA requirements for release of records.

Cons: I would like to see it more compatible with Medical Records for integrating behavioral health into Primary Care.

Overall: ease of compliance with managed care record keeping requirements

Pros: Thereascribe is a great tool for treatment planning, progress notes, and homework planning. It is set up to easily use with lots of points and click features. Customer support is great, timely, and courteous, whether via email or telephone. Using customer support, they were able to help us customize a few changes to the program to be program specific for our setting!

Cons: There is always a learning curve - at one point, I allowed too many users with administrative privileges and some of the users went in and changed some settings that made Therascribe unusable. This was not the fault of the software. Working with customer support, they were able to get us up and running.

Overall: A comprehensive treatment planning and progress note program.

Our account rep has done a great job troubleshooting any issues we experience.

Pros: I like the ease and the speed of creating treatment plans and writing progress notes that I can customize to meet our clients' needs. Therascribe allows our therapists to spend more time with the client. I really value not only the evidenced-based information available to create the treatment plans, but also the final presentation. Our charts look great! We are often asked which software program we use. Therascribe is user friendly -- It is easy to learn and it is easy to teach the staff how to use it.
I appreciate the versatility of the software. I started using Therascribe in private practice. As my practice grew into a small agency (staff of 12), Therascribe grew with the increasing software needs of the therapists and the agency. Therascribe is a good place to start -- and you will find that you want to continue with it! And finally, the technical support is invaluable, it is cost effective and you "get the knowledge that goes along with the know-how." This software was one of the best decisions...best choices... and best investments "Pipeline Counseling" has made.

Cons: I think the assessment section is too general. It is excellent for a smaller practice, however, I would like each of those sections to prompt or require more specific information be entered.

Overall: It's very easy to use and easy to learn. The end product presentation is great!
