EHRs qualify for a full review if they:
- Offer or make available a trial or demo account
- Answer questions about their product and related topics (security, HIPAA)
- Are focused on the needs of therapist in private practice

Pros: Simple Clean Interface and a Committment to Keep it That Way
Cons: No Insurance Filing or Billing Features, Not HIPAA Compliant
Standout Features: Custom correspondence documents
It’s a Good Choice For Practices That: Solo or small group practices that want to keep things very simple and don’t have to comply with HIPAA
WriteUpp doesn’t set out to be everything to everyone. In fact, they are counting on a target market for those who want the most basic of practice management solutions. They’re off to a good start in that respect, with a nice clean, uncomplicated interface. The home page is the day’s schedule so you can start right off adding appointments. All of your activities are driven by the “Active Patient”. Any new appointment, note, or document you create will be automatically associated with that client. One of WriteUpp’s standout features is the ability to create a document template (like a letter to a client) that can automatically incorporate fields from the database (like patient name and address).
Beyond that, WriteUpp’s promise of keeping things basic may leave even those seeking the simplest of solutions wanting. There are no insurance tracking or filing features and billing is limited to the production of invoices. Notes are a simple rich text field completely detached from sessions, related instead to the date that you complete them. Invoices, that include appointments, can be created and then mark paid. However, there is no way to track how they were paid or run any sort of revenue reports.
WriteUpp has added quite a number of features since I first reviewed them year ago. They now support: recurring appointments, iCal integration, Appointment Reminders, support for multiple locations and more.
WriteUpp is based in the UK, so the pricing is in pounds sterling. Because of the current currency exchange rates, this makes it less of a deal for those in the United States. While they do offer price breaks for each additional user, they cost is still significantly higher than competitors who provide more. If you’re wanting to keep things as simple as possible, that may work for you.
If you are looking to keep things as simple as possible, and aren’t a HIPAA Covered Entity, WriteUpp is worth a look. They offer a free trial and it should only take a few minutes for you to determine if it fits your needs.
