How does CounSol practice management work?
Your CounSol subscription is easy to load on any web browser application and only requires a consistent internet connection. Once logged in, here are some of the initial steps you can take to start working on the system:
Step 1 – Select the Sessions Icon
The first step in setting up CounSol is to select the Sessions icon. This will allow you to access all of the features that are available within the system. From here you can create new sessions for your patients as well as view any existing ones that have already been created.
Step 2 – Click on the Session Date
Once you have selected the Sessions icon, click on the date of the session that you would like to create or view. This will take you to a page where you can view more detailed information about that particular session. On this page, there should be a button labeled ‘Start Video Session’ which will allow you to start a video conference with your patient if desired.
Step 3 – Set Up Your Practice Settings
The next step is to set up your practice settings within CounSol. This includes things such as creating a profile for yourself so potential clients can find you more easily and setting up client portal permissions so they can access certain information when needed. You can also customize how your client portal looks so it reflects your own personal style and branding.
Step 4 – Edit Client Details
Finally, once everything is set up properly, you can begin editing client details such as their contact information and other relevant data points about them. This allows you to keep track of all of your clients in one place and ensure that their information is always up-to-date and accurate.
