Mentalyc is truly groundbreaking for therapy. We're proud to be the first 100% confidential AI scribe on the market.
"Radical data transparency is what healthcare needs at this point to build trust and reduce misinformation. With the development of new technologies, such as AI, is it even more important to keep everyone informed. I appreciate that Mentalyc is trying to elevate industry standards with high visibility for all."
Kevin Ramotar, Clinical leader in Digital Health, Quality, Compliance, and Patient Safety
We believe that you need to know exactly what happens to your data.
Recordings are NOT stored
Your recordings are immediately deleted from our server after the session is transcribed. They are completely removed from cache memory (temporary, inaccessible storage) within 1-2 hours.
Personal information is removed
While transcribing, the system removes all personal information from the text output. No PHI is stored (names, locations, etc.). The therapist does not need to input any identifying information into Mentalyc.
Connection is encrypted
Mentalyc follows the highest security standards. All data is stored in HIPAA-compliant databases that are fully encrypted and inaccessible by Mentalyc.
Mentalyc values client privacy more than anything! We deeply believe that high-quality and efficient notes help everyone in the clinical ecosystem. It is a win-win situation for therapists and clients receiving services.
There are no secrets to how we handle data
Therapists do not need to worry about memorizing all of the important session details. Instead, they can devote their full attention to the client and let Mentalyc focus on the notes.
Mentalyc captures interesting quotes and insight which help the therapists to better conceptualize the case and come up with better solutions.
Mentalyc takes care that the notes are written in a way that complies with payer requirements. This lowers the changes of further treatment being denied by payers.

Notes need to be respectful. The client has a right to request access to the notes!
Right level of details
It is important to write only the information relevant to the therapeutic process.
We offer a consent template which you can download here.
We remove the recording right after the transcript is created.
It means we remove the client’s protected health information, such as names and locations; thus sessions are anonymized and not connected to an identifiable person.
The therapist will need to review Mentalyc's note to make sure there is a specific diagnosis indicated and that it matches to the active symptoms being discussed in treatment. It's important to use present tense versus past history. There should be language around the frequency, intensity or severity of current symptoms and how this impairs functioning below baseline or otherwise makes baseline functioning impossible without therapeutic intervention and ongoing support. We highly recommend using your clinical eye to verify these elements of medical necessity are well documented to ensure best results with insurers or other auditing efforts.
Our algorithms are trained on big data sets of therapy conversations and notes. Additionally, they are trained in therapy books, such as the DSM 5 manual, treatment planners, etc. They recognize patterns in conversations and draw their own conclusions. This way, they can provide interesting insights into your case conceptualization! Nonetheless, remember to double-check what they come up with. At the end of the day, there is more to clinical practice than statistics!
Maria, the CEO, and co-founder of Mentalyc went to therapy herself. She had to switch therapists multiple times before she overcame her struggles. She devoted her career to improving the experience for others!
