Move away from paper charts or outdated EMRs with our intuitive & simple mental health EHR software.

Most EHRs are designed for clinical practice, and mental and behavioral health clinics have to figure out ways to fit your practice into existing software frameworks, creating cumbersome workarounds and frustrating challenges for providers and staff.

AdvancedMD has an EHR module designed specifically for mental health practitioners. It allows you to create the ideal workflows based on your existing treatment protocols and the unique needs of mental health patients and practitioners. It can also be implemented in multi-specialty practices that include mental health providers, an increasingly common practice setup that is very beneficial to help patients access the full range of physical and mental health needs.

Accurate Diagnosis & Individualized Treatment Plans

An accurate diagnosis is the first step to an effective treatment plan. AdvancedMD supports your therapists with tools that connect the dots and automate the steps to get to that diagnosis.

Auto-calculated diagnostics

Your clients fill out a personality inventory questionnaire, and the information is sent directly to the EHR. The responses auto-populate into your clinician’s notes so you can immediately see them and use them as you formulate clinical opinions on the best options for treatment.

With a single click the EHR can take the information from a client’s responses and calculate a score to aid in diagnosis. You can also use cross-cutting measures to identify co-occurrence of multiple conditions and assess maladaptive personality traits from personal inventory measures.

HealthWatcher clinical decision support

Our proprietary HealthWatcher tool helps you create personalized safety and treatment protocols for each patient. The robust tool helps psychiatrists and therapists manage a range of follow-up activities and communications based on a client’s diagnosis, treatment plan and current status.


For example, after a client finishes their treatment plan and is taking a prescribed controlled substance, you can get reminders to schedule follow-up visits (in person or teletherapy), send prescription refills, and schedule drug testing or lab work as needed.

Customizable EHR Workflows for Your Practice Needs

Our completely customizable workflows make it easy for all types of mental health and behavioral health professionals to document patient encounters and provide necessary care. Our configurable behavioral health EHR notes and sub notes use DSM-5 criteria for both adult and child populations.

Integrated tools make it easy to diagnose, plan, and treat specific disorders. You can also monitor the severity of conditions and a client’s progress using tools like Global Assessment of Functioning (GAF) charts and graphs.

EPCS online prescribing

Easily prescribe medications and authorize refills using our ePrescribing tools. Our HIPAA-compliant software allows you to access medical and prescription histories online from any internet-connected device. ECPS includes advanced security features like two-factor authentication and security validation, along with a complete audit paper trail, so you can prescribe controlled substances with confidence knowing there are practice safeguards in place.

My-eyes-only security safeguards

Protect sensitive client information from unauthorized viewing and access. Providers can designate any chart as “my eyes only” and create a customized list of authorized staff or providers who can view it. You get an immediate alert if someone outside of the authorized list tries to access the client’s record.

Bidirectional lab interface

Send lab orders for required bloodwork and tests, and get lab results sent directly to the client’s EHR. Easily view results outside of the normal range with our visual dashboard feature.

Streamline Charting & Client Encounters

Our mental health EHR software was designed with the help of practitioners to streamline encounters with clients and improve practice efficiency without adding more “computer time” to your day. Screen for specific disorders and use that information to create treatment plans. We offer a complete lifecycle of electronic clinical documents for any mental health therapist workflow that you can customize based on your needs.

Customizable EHR notes & sub notes

Set up customized templates for clients based on diagnosis or treatment plan for conditions like depression, anxiety, eating disorders, personality disorders, addiction, suicide, and more. The EHR will automatically populate and you can adjust the data as needed for each patient, eliminating wasted time typing in the same information in every chart.

Suggested E&M coding

Select from a simple list of suggested mental health ICD-10 codes at each encounter so you won’t have to wade through hundreds of codes just to find what you need. Once you select a code, the EHR automatically populates the client problem list, patient education, and web links to help you provide education and information to clients based on their diagnosis.

Group scheduling & group notes

Automatically schedule group appointments with a single click through our scheduling modules. When you add notes from the encounter that information will be pushed to the chart for each client that is part of the group session. Once the information is populated, you can modify individual patient records based on their needs.

Telehealth & Teletherapy Integration

Telehealth and teletherapy are essential tools to improve care for your clients and improve your mental health practice. The right teletherapy integrations can make it easier to provide remote care to your patients when they cannot make it into your client or don’t need to come in person.

AdvancedMD offers the latest HIPAA-compliant tools to help you and your patients take advantage of all that telehealth has to offer.

Decrease costs

Telehealth and teletherapy allow your providers to see more patients without expanding clinic hours or increasing costs for things like staff time and office space. Therapists can also expand availability to more hours, such as early mornings, evenings, or weekends without adding any more overhead costs.

See more patients

Removing geographic barriers can help you add more clients and reach more people who otherwise might not have come to your practice.

Improve outcomes

Research suggests that teletherapy is just as effective as in-person care for most patients. With effective workflows you can see more patients in less time, reducing the time it takes for new patients to get an appointment and improving your ability to provide follow-up care. Clients are also less likely to need emergency mental-health-related treatment when they can access a therapist online.

Provide access to time-sensitive care

Sometimes mental health care cannot wait for regular business hours. Telehealth and teletherapy give your patients access to communication tools to reach out to your clinic between visits or when an emergency arises. Our tools allow you to offer virtual visits anytime, including emergency and after-hours options when available.

See clients when and where it’s most convenient

Some of your clients might have a hard time getting into your office for in-person appointments during regular clinic hours, or might have other challenges like transportation, geographic distance or mobility that limit their access to care. Teletherapy allows you to offer convenient and secure virtual care to accommodate their needs.

Increase client satisfaction

Clients increasingly want convenient access to telehealth and teletherapy options from their mental health providers. Teletherapy allows clients to avoid the hassles of in-person visits (travel, parking, missing work, or coordinating childcare). It also improves privacy for someone who isn’t comfortable sitting in a crowded waiting room or going into a mental health office.

“The money I have invested in AdvancedMD is miniscule compared to the return. I have never been more efficient – ever – in my professional life as I am now.”

“[Our] patients are very well-educated and well-informed, and they want to see results quickly. The practice has to run extremely efficiently and be accessible to them. The nice thing about [AdvancedMD] is it has allowed me to be more efficient both in and out of the office. Now I don’t have to come back into the office, which is great for my family and everything else. It saves me a lot of time – probably an hour a day on the three days I work in the second office.”
