How has SimplePractice proved to be the best practice management platform for health and wellness professionals?
We’ve empowered over 20,000 health and wellness professionals to start, run and grow private practices across the US and the world. Through first-hand understanding of health and wellness practices by our co-founder, Howard Spector, we’ve build a platform that’s tailored to meet the specific challenges clinicians face. With over $1 billion in revenue collected through the SimplePractice platform, we are the leading choice for small business owners committed to health and wellness work in their communities.
What’s the inspiration behind SimplePractice?
To put it simply, we’re inspired by the work health and wellness professionals do and we want to help them start, run, and grow their businesses.
Trained as an MFT, SimplePractice co-founder Howard Spector set out to start his own private practice. At that time, he could not find software that was both flexible for his unique needs as a therapist while still keeping him in control of important tasks like client communication, scheduling, and billing. Drawing on his years of experience leading software teams and running his own small businesses, Howard set out to create a platform that was unique for him and his peers. He teamed up with co-founder Ralph Zimmermann, a technologist with deep experience in security and mobile applications.
With a multidisciplinary approach they focused on smart design, HIPAA compliance, and automations specific to health and wellness in order to create a system that keeps you in control of every aspect of your business while still providing the flexibility you need to run your unique health and wellness practice from anywhere: desktop, tablet, and smartphone. Today SimplePractice is a team of technologists, designers, engineers, accountants, entrepreneurs, writers, therapists, an SLP, and more, all working to support our customers and build the best possible tools for private practice owners to start, run, and grow their health and wellness businesses.
Any challenges the company has faced and been able to overcome?
Everyday we face the same challenge as other small businesses: deciding how to prioritize our resources. Time and effort are finite, and everyday we’re forced to prioritize what we work on and build. Since we’ve launched, we’ve focused on speaking with and listening to our community of customers in order to understand the best way we can serve the health and wellness community.
