Client Portal: Overview

TherapyAppointment has made the client/patient portal user-friendly, so that clients have quick access to pertinent information.

Once in the Client Portal, the Dashboard offers clients quick access to view important tasks, such as: Account Setup, Appointments, Assigned Documents, Account Balance, and the ability to manage Insurance Information within the Account.

Tasks On The Dashboard

Above is a client portal dashboard once signed in for the first time.

From the dashboard you'll notice the following:


Two-Factor Authentication

  • Two-Factor Authentication keeps the client account more secure.
  • Although not a requirement to set up, TherapyAppointment strongly encourages enacting this additional protection. The client is notified via email when logging in from an unrecognized device
  • Once enabled, the client will be prompted to enter the two factor code when signing in from an unrecognized device

Note: Clients can change this either from the dashboard, or under their My Profile area


View Client Documents

Clients will be shown this when they have either documents assigned to them:

Note: Clients are shown on the left hand menu the number of uncompleted documents, highlighted below:

Clicking on My Docs & Forms takes them to the page of their available forms:


Provide Insurance Information 

Clients can click within the 'Account Set Up' section to manage health insurance details.

  • ‘No Insurance’ indicates self-pay
  • Select ‘I Have Insurance’ to include health insurance information
    • Complete the line items within, then Save

Note: want to collect this information during client registration (clients created either self-registered or by staff)? Please check this article out: Client registration process


Schedule & View Appointments

Upcoming scheduled appointments are easily viewed from the dashboard in the bottom section.

If the provider has offered self-scheduling access, creating an appointment is easily available within the client portal.

  • Clients self-schedule by clicking the top right button Schedule New Appointment
  • The system will then show clients available dates & times based on provider availability, similar to below:
