With Owl, you can automatically generate invoices, integrate credit card payment processing, send insurance claims, track insurance payments, and flag what’s still outstanding.

There are many reasons, but here are key benefits to web-based practice management:

Accessible Anywhere

There is a huge benefit to being able to access your practice data wherever you are, on the device of your choice. Owl is cloud-based software that supports all major operating systems (Mac, Windows/PC), mobile smartphone platforms (iOS, Android), and browsers (Chrome, Safari). So whether you’re on-the-go during the week, or on vacation half-way around the world, you can always stay connected to your practice data.

Everything in One Place

With Owl, you can securely store all your practice data and clinical documentation in one centralized and secure practice management system. From client appointments to session notes, invoices to scanned documents, to-do management to appointment reminders, Owl let’s you manage your practice with ease!

Real-time Backups

There’s no need for finicky backup hard-disks or difficult recoveries. Owl handles all that for you, and it brings a lot of peace-of-mind to you as a practice owner.

HIPAA and Professional Compliance

Owl is designed specifically to help your practice achieve HIPAA and Professional compliance. It avoids the need for you to maintain encrypted hard-drives and do routine backups. It also eliminates single-point-of-failure concerns that happen with standalone software solutions.

Continuous Improvements to Owl

Unlike downloadable software, the Owl practice management system continuously improves over time, with new richer key features (e.g. our Notes Templates or Document Uploads features). There is no manual downloading necessary as all changes are updated automatically the next time you log in to Owl. It’s easy, always up-to-date, and it gets better with age!

All-In-One Fee

While a desktop-based software program may seem less expensive, it’s important to consider the total cost of ownership. Costs related to new versions, support, the IT support required for software installation / re-installation on new computers, and catastrophic costs like losing a hard drive or getting a virus are all avoided with cloud-based services. Many people choose a software-as-a-service solution like Owl Practice because it actually saves them money over time.

The Web-based Trend

Web-based practice management is expanding rapidly and this trend will continue. Most desktop-based solutions are fading quickly as there is a major move across the software industry to service-based software solutions (like Owl). There have already been traditional practice management tools that have “retired” in the wake of much more popular web-based solutions. One of the risks with downloadable software is the longevity of these products, and specifically the support that will be offered as this type of product diminishes in popularity.

There are many reasons, but here are the five most important reasons to choose Owl:

We understand private practice for mental health practitioners

Everything we’ve learned about how to succeed in private practice is built into Owl and available for psychologists, social workers and other therapists so they can save time, get organized, and see more clients. 

We’ve got a world-class, user-friendly design

We’ve spent a lot of time and effort making sure that Owl is a simple-to-use, intuitive, and elegant system that is a pleasure to use. You’ll be using your practice management system every day, perfecting your practice workflows and updating secure patient records, so it’s important that it works well and adds joy to your practice experience.

We’re highly recommended

Our customers love Owl and often refer us to their associates and colleagues. Our business is built upon positive word-of-mouth and referrals, so being loved by our customers is critical. Thankfully, it happens a lot!

We care deeply about mental health

As our Mission says, and as we live out every day, we believe people need more access to mental health services. We’re here for psychologists, social workers and therapists. Anything we can do at Owl Practice to make your life as a therapist easier will allow you to save time, see more clients and do the work you do. That’s a good thing and something we’re proud to support.

We have great customer service and care about your success

We know being in private practice is challenging, no matter the practice size, and that having a partner to help you be successful is important. Not only do we support you with attentive, one-on-one service, but we’re here to support you in any way possible on your journey in your independent practice or therapy group!

Yes. We’ve spent a lot of time to make sure Owl is easy-to-use and beautiful by design. You’ll be spending a lot of time with your practice management system, so we wanted to make it a delight to use each day. We continually receive positive feedback on the simplicity and elegance of our design – that it’s beautiful and just easy to use. Try it – we know you’ll agree.

Yes. When consulting extensively with US clinicians as we were designing and developing Owl Practice, we heard very clearly that therapists wanted to ensure HIPAA and Professional (Psychology, Social Work, Psychotherapy) compliance, and thereby high levels of security for the privacy of their practice information. At Owl Practice, we go to great lengths to ensure the security and privacy of all your practice data, clinical notes, and medical records at all times using a variety of means to do so. These include encrypting all communications between your device/browser and our servers, redundantly backing up your practice data frequently, enabling tiered user access for different user types (e.g. owners, office administrators, therapists), creating distinct and segregated databases for each account, and ensuring that personal information does not leave the Owl Practice system. Rest assured, your data is safe and secure with Owl and we work with you to help you achieve HIPPA and Professional information privacy compliance.

Yes. Designed from Day 1 for multi-clinician practices, Owl is ready for your growing practice! Owl’s rich Group Edition feature set includes a multi-clinician calendar, level-based fee schedule, tailored access by user type (Owners, Therapists, Office Admins), and data exports for accounting and periodic therapist payments. We have extensive experience helping large practices build efficiency into their practice operations using Owl. And if you’re a single practitioner looking to grow your business, it’s a seamless transition to upgrade to one of our Group Edition plans when you’re ready to do that.

Yes. All our plans are month-to-month, can be changed at any time (no contracts!), and include setup and on-going customer support. Ask our customers and they’ll tell you that Owl support is outstanding. We’re always available, friendly, and ready to help your practice grow. And feel free to ask us any practice-related questions you may have – we’re happy to share the industry standards and best practices we’ve learned from how to collect payments to structuring fee changes, negotiating a lease to year-end accounting. We’re here to help you succeed in private practice!
