Clinical Documentation

Save time without sacrificing the quality of your notes.

Produce Clean, Professional, and Compliant Clinical Documentation

Valant’s unique approach to clinical documentation enables you to complete your intake and progress notes before the end of each session, eliminating the unnecessary note pile-up that occurs in many practices.

To expedite the note-completion process, you can automatically pull the following information into each new note:

  • Carry forward the previous note so you’re not starting from scratch each time
  • Chart data (diagnosis, medication, allergies)
  • Outcome measures data and auto-generated narratives
  • Clinical questionnaires data
  • Billing information, such as CPT code, appointment time, provider name, appointment duration, and any pertinent demographic data

During the session, Valant’s templates guide you through the required documentation, keeping your notes short and simple, while ensuring you have captured all the necessary information to meet insurance requirements. Of course, you’re the final author of the note and can add details, edit the narrative, or change the CPT code as you see fit before signing the note.

Upon completion, Valant gives you professional-looking notes that are thorough, consistent, and easy-to-digest. This is required for getting paid, creating confidence in collaborating and referring providers, and preparing for the unexpected malpractice suit, court order, or audit.

Good note taking will always be an important part of quality care. Software may never be able to replace the human element necessary to drive the note taking process, but it can at least eliminate a lot of the cognitive overhead. “I don’t think about it very much,” said Woods, “which is my favorite aspect about Valant.”

Designed Exclusively for Behavioral Health

Valant’s Mobile Notes gives you the ability to quickly create notes templates suited for your behavioral health practice. Choose from 100+ clinical sections built in conjunction with the top behavioral health clinical advisors for each area of expertise (i.e. CBT, DBT, eating and weight disorders, marriage and family therapy, child and adolescent, etc.).

As you know, mental health visits can be especially tricky to document. Computers can create a physical barrier between you and your clients while writing full sentence notes can interfere with your ability to listen carefully. Valant’s Mobile Notes enables you to discreetly complete your note in real-time from a mobile device or tablet. Quick check boxes and automated narratives allow you to unobtrusively document individual, family, or group sessions without losing focus on your clients.

Save Time with Outcome Measure Integration

Assign clinical questionnaires, rating scales and outcome measures to your client prior to their visit via the Patient Portal. Once they complete the measure, the auto-scored data inputs, along with a clinically relevant narrative, are automatically inserted directly into the clinician’s note, eliminating the hassle involved with reviewing and summarizing the data manually. This saves clinicians a substantial amount of time for each intake and progress note.

Choose the Documentation That Works Best for You

Every provider has different documentation preferences and Valant has options to accommodate those preferences – while still maintaining compliance with billing requirements.

Valant’s suite of documentation tools includes structured documentation templates using Valant Mobile Notes, free-form notes using a built-in web editor or Word templates, and the ability to create custom macros to document client visits.

Regardless of your preferred note-taking method, Valant’s flexibility makes your clinical documentation easy and efficient.

Ann S.Owner

The clinical templates are clearly designed for me. Efficiency is a big deal for me and Valant helps me improve efficiency every day.

Deann L.Owner and Psychiatrist

What we like best about the product is that our clinicians love the product and as a result they have embraced our new EMR. This allows the practice to focus on healthcare rather than operations, which was our primary goal in choosing a new system.
