Does patient documentation seem like a chore? Have you felt it takes too much of your time? Is there a better solution? What if therapy notes became a vital part of improved patient outcomes?
The Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (JCAHO) aims to support clinical decision-making and improve patient outcomes. Yet, they recognize patient care is a complex task. This task depends on thorough reporting.
Many speech-language pathologists are scratching their heads. They understand patient reporting is vital. Yet, they feel frustrated with the countless hours needed to do it. HelloNote is here to help you with all of your electronic medical record needs.
What is EMR for Speech Therapy?
EMR, or electronic medical records, involves tracking patient information through clinical documentation. JCAHO doesn’t require a specific EMR format. You’re good as long as the documentation conforms to federal, state, and local laws.
Remember to consider your facility’s standards. HelloNote provides an EMR for speech therapists that tracks patients’ information while complying with laws and standards.
Web-based EMRs allow speech therapists to streamline documentation. Online EMR systems are commonly used in modern medical practices. However, knowing which EMR to choose can be overwhelming. When choosing a speech therapy EMR consider the following:
Maintain Compliance with EMR for Speech Therapy
Not all speech therapy EMR software systems are created equal. Your primary concern should be maintaining regulatory compliance. According to the American Medical Association (AMA), HIPAA violations can cost therapists anywhere from $100 – $50,000.
The EMR you choose must be a secure, compliant documentation tool. At HelloNote, we offer data encryption and encrypted backups ensuring HIPAA compliance. We also provide secure messaging, which allows therapists to safely communicate with patients. Creating defensible, comprehensive, patient-centric documentation is our goal here at HelloNote.
All-In-One Speech Therapy Practice Management Software
Some EMR systems leave therapy practitioners feeling disheartened and frustrated. Imagine buying a management software system only to find you need to purchase more software. Here at HelloNote, we provide an all-in-one therapy management system. We find it very important to include the following key elements in our software:
- Scheduling: Our management software provides resources to manage schedules and optimize workflow, and we also offer automated appointment reminders

Patient Chart Access and Sharing Anywhere
Cloud-based EMRs like HelloNote, allow therapists to access notes and records anywhere. Many STs want to review patient reports before an appointment. Digital management software solutions also enable team collaboration and multidisciplinary care.
In 2022, Medicare created five CPT codes for remote therapeutic monitoring (RTM). Therapists are now reimbursed for virtual patient monitoring. These Medicare allowances make remote work much more accessible.
Simple Electronic Medical Record Software for Speech Therapists
Electronic medical records should simplify and streamline speech therapists’ workload. Some EMR systems are so customizable that they are overly complicated.
Therapists become weary of repetitive documentation. Other solutions limit reporting options. With these, speech therapists find it difficult to be specific.

Templates are helpful. Yet, customizable templates are a win-win. Efficiency and thoroughness become possible.
HelloNote’s easy-to-use templates provide efficiency while allowing for integral information documentation.
