- Offer or make available a trial or demo account

Like so many of these applications, BreezyNotes started out as an application developed by a mental health professional who couldn’t find an application that met their needs. In 2015, that application was put out for general public use and is adding features on a regular basis. BreezyNotes has its work cut out for it, jumping into a market with many competitors, but they are off to a good start.
BreezyNotes is focused on keeping things straight forward and easy to use. Their interface is clean and I found it generally easy to find my way around. Most of the basic desired features will be found, including scheduling, billing, notes, and insurance filing. They even have some more advanced features like ERA auto-posting, and the ability to track clinician commission (or split). Also featured is friendly pricing for those who see a limited number of clients, based on the number of progress notes completed.
Other areas of BreezyNotes make it more clear they are at an early stage of development. Repeat appointments were only just added in the most recent version (1.6), there’s no client portal, no appointment reminders, and progress notes are a simple, open text box SOAP style note. In addition, some of the navigation is inconsistent. For example, some areas of the client record sport a clean, tabbed interface, while others require you to click on the client name to return to where you were.
BreezyNotes appears to be adding new features and improvements on a regular basis, so it will be interesting to see what they are able to accomplish in the coming months. If your focus is on a clean and simple application, it might be worth a look, especially if you are a budget-minded, part-time clinician. Larger practices may also find features like commission reports appealing.
