Follow these steps to get an insurance-compliant note ready in no time without writing it yourself!
Your clients have no way of knowing that you use Mentalyc unless you tell them.
For your convenience, we provide a client consent template in the Mentalyc app (found under the user profile) and on our website. We strongly advise informing clients about session recording. Download it here.
Client talking points
When talking to your client about using Mentalyc, be sure to cover all the points mentioned. We have a separate page providing detailed information on security and client benefits. Feel free to share it with your clients.
Mentalyc works in any session: online, in-person, or hybrid, there are no limits! Recording is free and HIPAA compliant.
Dictation & Typing
Forgot to record a session? No problem! You can describe what happened in the session via voice or text and Mentalyc will write perfectly structured intake, progress or service notes matching the templates you select.
You can upload your recordings directly from any device.
For in-person or phone sessions, you'll likely use your phone or tablet for recording. You can upload directly from mobile devices and tablets. Note review and signing are currently available only on desktop.
Tailoring our platform to your preferences, we offer flexibility in creating session notes through recorded summaries or text entries. Choose to capture the session verbally and have it transcribed, or type your observations and insights directly. This adaptable approach suits various communication styles and seamlessly integrates note-taking into your workflow.
Meet insurance compliance with automated session tracking. Our system manages session details, including type (individual, child, couple, or family) and timing. Review and approve each note for accuracy.
Select the kind of note you wish to craft. We offer a range of default templates for quick access, but if you're seeking a tailored approach, our template builder is at your service. With over 100 items available, you can design precisely what you need. Mentalyc supports a variety of note types, including intake, SOAP, DAP, BIRP, PIRP, PLAY, EMDR, MSE, Risk Assessment and much more.
You can keep your records in Mentalyc or elsewhere. Mentalyc makes it easy to export your notes and provides flexibility.
Mentalyc stores all your notes, transcripts, and statistics in the 'records' page within the app. These records are anonymized, encrypted, and compliant with HIPAA regulations.
Exporting notes from Mentalyc is incredibly simple. With just one click, you can copy, download, or print notes for your EHR or keep them on your device. You have the choice to retain notes in Mentalyc, your EHR, or delete them – it's all in your hands!
We believe that you need to know exactly what happens to your data.
No recordings stored
When you upload a session recording to Mentalyc, it's instantly transcribed, and the original recording is securely deleted in a HIPAA-compliant environment.
Notes are anonymized
When you upload a session, it's transcribed instantly with client identifiers like names and places removed. You can choose to use full names, nicknames, or initials for client medical records in Mentalyc notes, based on your preference.
Delete anonymized notes in Mentalyc anytime. You can choose to remove transcripts or all session data. Mentalyc is HIPAA-compliant and ensures anonymity, so deletions are generally unnecessary.
Mentalyc provides therapists with valuable session insights through detailed statistics on recorded audio sessions. These insights cover session duration, client-therapist speaking time, and silent periods. This data aids therapists in analyzing and enhancing their sessions for improved outcomes.
