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 explained in depth below but includes: 2-factor authentication, insurance information, view appointments & client responsibility, make payments, access assigned documents to complete, etc.


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

Similar to "unread notifications" in other apps, 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:


Insurance Information 

Clients can click My Insurance (left menu) to manage health insurance details.

  • No Insurance: indicates self or private pay
  • I Have Insurance: allows you to include health insurance information (sent to staff to review in client profile under Primary Insurance section)
    • Complete the required insurance items within, then click  button at the bottom

⚠️ 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.

  • From the Dashboard, clients can self-schedule by clicking the button (top right)
  • The system will then show clients available dates & times based on provider availability, similar to below:
