When evaluating practice management software for therapists, Theranest www.theranest.com gets thumbs down for the following reason:
Holds your data hostage. If you decide to use Theranest a while, they seem to want to make it as painful as possible to take your marbles (data) if you close your account.
- Will not export client notes as text. (A printout or PDF is useless when it comes time to import data into a new system. And you know that Theranest knows that.)
- Will not export client session history as text, not even just dates of past or future sessions.
- Will not export client payments as text.
Literally impossible to schedule support group meetings where the attendees change from meeting to meeting.
Whether or not support group scheduling is important to your practice, as a matter of principle and practicality you should, in my opinion. reject ANY application that doe snot offer complete data portability.
