Today is a very important day for us here at Mentegram. Today, we released new patient-level reports. For all of you, this is an important way to view and analyze your clients / patients’ progress through assessments and screens. Further, this is a key component to allow psychologist and psychiatrists to get reimbursed for using Mentegram.

These reports allow you to build a report of the screening and assessment results for each of your clients / patients. If your clients are monitoring their depression and substance use, or anxiety and work stress, you can see these scores side by side, and see how they have been changing over time. You can also include interpretation note and integrate these results with additional information you have about the client / patient, such as their responses to other instruments you have distributed through Mentegram.

Finalize report, or directly export them in PDF format.

Finalize report, or directly export it in PDF format.

When you’re done, you can finalize the report and even export it as a PDF or plain-text data for import into your EHR or practice management software. Neat!

Insurance Billing

For the Clinical Psychologists and Psychiatrists, and those working in organizations supervised by psychologists or psychiatrists, these reports have been built specifically to allow you to bill for the Mentegram services. We have added a new section to our support page that outlines the compliance criteria for your insurance coding. Read more at: support.mentegram.com If you have any questions about insurance coding and Mentegram. please contact us at compliance@mentegram.com.

We continue to build more capability into Mentegram, to support your work flows. Stay tuned for more excited updates.

We continue to refine the user experience of our Clinical Dashboard. Today we released a much-requested feature to our private library, and made other small changes.

Improved organization on small screens

Private Library Template Editing

After out last-week’s update when we enabled users on the Professional or Premium account to add new templates to their private library, today we also enabled editing of existing templates in the private library. You will see the grey “EDIT” button right next to the usual Preview and Use buttons.

 

Improved Mobile View

Many of you use Mentegram on your tablets and smartphones. Our dashboard has been “responsive,” in other words usable on a small screen, for a while, but the experience has not been stellar. We continue to  refine the way the dashboard looks and works on small screens. The Client View has been cleaned up, icons have been realigned, and other elements now take up less space when viewed on small devices.

As always, small things can make your usage of Mentegram joyful, or dreadful. We continue to refine the experience so you enjoy the time you spend using our interface.

 

Today, we made another, much requested change to Mentegram Clinical Dashboard: we turned therapy notes into a major feature. Therapy notes have been present as a minor feature since last fall, and as you began using them more often, you began letting us know how to make them better and more useful. Today we release the requested features.

View and add notes straight from the list of your active clients / patients.

First, you can assign a therapy note to a client / patient or to a measurement / questionnaire assigned to that client. Second, the notes include common preset templates that help you write your notes more effectively. Finally, therapy notes can now be accessed directly from the client / patient list, so that you can get to writing a note quicker.

See for yourself!

We have also made minor changes to the webapp, improving its usability and looks. If your clients or patients lack smartphones, or if you’d like to use Mentegram in inpatient or PHP settings, have a look!

 

Questions and Answers:

Q: How can I see all the notes I have written for a client or patient?

A: Easy, there are two ways actually! First, from the list of your clients, click the green “view notes” button on the right. Alternatively, from the client overview page, click Notes from the left-hand menu.

Q: How do I attach a note to a specific questionnaire or assessment?

A: This is how: go to the questionnaire or assessment to which you want to provide context, and click the “Add Note” button on top right corner. You’ll see that the note written here will show in the main Notes view.

Q: Can I attach a note to a specific data entry?

A: That is not possible at the moment. If this is something you’d like to see added in the future, please reach out at hello@mentegram.com.

We are happy to announce a great new feature for users of our private library feature. Until now, only Mentegram staff could populate your private library — that changed today. We just rolled out a new feature that allows you to add questionnaires and other items to your private library directly.

This is how you do it:

As modest as the concept seems, remote patient monitoring (RPM) is quite expansive, revolutionizing healthcare in not just the chronic care field, but in the mental and behavioral healthcare space, as well. Remote patient monitoring is a type of client engagement, whereby clients use a mobile device such as a cell phone to share developments in their condition with their care providers.

Understanding Relapse

For many people, what constitutes a relapse is that final slip, the surrender after their long struggle to avoid using again. However, relapse is a diabolical process of isolation and self-doubt that chips away at a subject’s resolve, until they are too exhausted to endure any longer. When it is only understood as the tip, instead of the iceberg, recovery becomes increasingly difficult because multiple stages, and symptoms, are being ignored. Read more

If your client doesn’t already have enough on their mind before coming in for therapy, they will have plenty to process after they leave. At this time, you can safely assume that most clients are not scheduling time with themselves to sit down and complete the behavioral tracking homework that you’ve given them. Read more
