SimplePractice Launches a Measurement-Based Care Solution to Enhance Patient Progress Tracking

The new solution integrates into the existing platform to simplify evidence-based approach to patient care

SimplePractice, an EngageSmart (NYSE: ESMT) solution and industry-leading platform simplifying the health and wellness experience for more than 185,000 solo and small group practitioners, announced a new solution for mental health practitioners to integrate measurement-based care (MBC) into their treatment plans. The new solution will enable practitioners to more easily use systematic assessments of a patient's progress to inform treatment decisions.

The SimplePractice MBC solution seamlessly integrates into practitioners’ existing workflows, offering evidence-based and data-interpreting features, including:

  • Improved scoring: gives automatic measurements, brief interpretations of results, and flags high-risk responses.
  • Visual charting: access to easy-to-read documents and visualization charts to showcase changes over time.
  • Simplified scheduling: reduces administrative burdens associated with appointment-tied scheduling and automated completion reminders.

“The launch of our measurement-based care solution is a critical resource for the more than 185,000 practitioners we support," said Jonathan Seltzer, President of SimplePractice. “SimplePractice remains committed to removing barriers that practitioners face in providing quality care, and integrating measurement-based care directly into our platform is an exciting next step for further quantifying the impact our practitioners have on millions of patients.”

In a recent customer survey, SimplePractice found that nearly half of clinicians incorporating MBC into their approach use pen and paper to collect data. In addition, respondents leveraging technology rely on several different methodologies, making MBC scoring a challenge. Yet, results from the SimplePractice MBC early adopter program revealed that 94% of practitioners using SimplePractice’s MBC automatic scoring feature say it makes their job easier, and over 80% of participants noted that it makes them more likely to use measurement-based questionnaires.

“Having my patient assessments directly integrated into my SimplePractice platform has been a game changer for me and my practice,” said Matthew Coffman, LPC, CEO and Co-Founder of Unpacked Group. “Before this integration, we had to pre-record and manually score forms. Now, when I open my results in SimplePractice, it’s already pre-calculated for me. Automating measurement-based care into our existing SimplePractice client experience and intake process is so invaluable for me and my team.”
