Focus on your clients, not your notes with AI Charting Assistant
December 11, 2023
What if I told you that you could cut your note-taking time in half, without compromising the accuracy of your notes?
Practice Better is proud to be the first to market with a feature that we know you’re going to love. Our gift to you is a time-saving feature that our beta testers loved: The Practice Better AI Charting Assistant.
With this brand-new add-on, you’ll be able to focus more on your clients during your telehealth session instead of scrambling to take accurate notes in real time (or remember every little thing that happened once the session ends).
Let’s take a tour of this new feature and how using it will help save you significant time each week, reducing your frustration and risk of burnout.
Quick poll: would you rather spend more time charting…or actively listening to your clients?
You’d rather dedicate more time and focus to your clients. The AI Charting Assistant is here to help you do just that.
The AI Charting Assistant automates session note-taking with recorded transcriptions, summaries, and clear action items.
Session summaries are accurate and can be integrated into customizable note templates improving the efficiency of your workflow and administrative tasks.
As healthcare professionals, we all know that documentation is incredibly important; if it wasn’t documented, it didn’t happen, right?
With the AI Charting assistant recording everything you and your client say, you can rest easy knowing you’ll have a reliable record of the conversation.
With more accurate and complete notes, you’re able to make decisions and recommendations that are even more evidence-based; your data is stronger.
Plus, it is easier for you to identify your clients’ patterns and trends in behavior to be able to offer more personalized care.
Here’s a video walk-through of how to use the AI Charting Assistant to speed up your note-taking while focusing on your clients.
Would you rather talk to your partner or spouse while they’re making eye contact or while they’re scrolling on their phone?
Your clients feel the same way; both you and your client benefit from having notes taken automatically; you’re able to connect more authentically with exactly what your client is saying, in real-time.
With the AI Charting Assistant, you’re able to listen actively, without the distraction of taking notes. This helps you and your clients to form stronger connections, with more trust.
Communication isn’t just what folks say, it is how they say it.
By delegating accurate note-taking to the AI Charting Assistant, you’ll have more bandwidth to notice the nuances and non-verbal cues that your clients are exhibiting.
This makes your assessment holistic and gives you more information to guide your treatment plans.
With your focus more fully on your client in real-time, you’re able to offer immediate responses to your patient’s concerns and proactively monitor for early interventions.
With any new tool, there will be questions and concerns. Let’s address a few common concerns we heard from our beta testers.
The AI Charting Assistant is compliant with all relevant healthcare regulations, including HIPAA.
At Practice Better, your clients’ and patients’ information is paramount, and our team have developed responsible use guidelines for AI.
No matter how skillful and accurate AI technology becomes, it will never replace your skills, expertise, and critical thinking.
The benefit of helpful AI technology is that you have more brain space to participate in the care process by not having to dedicate so much of your energy and focus on charting.
This is a win-win for both you and your clients.

A question our beta testers had before trying the feature was about how accurate the summaries were.
Guess what? They were blown away by the accuracy of the AI Charting Assistant!
Not only does the AI Charting Assistant take an audio recording and craft an accurate transcript, but it also does the important work of processing this information into a summary and clear action items that are ready to be added to your final notes with ease. The AI Charting Assistant also creates bookmarks so that you can review specific sections of the notes easily.
These are a few of the common questions we have had so far about this feature. If we missed something, please feel free to reach out here to get your questions answered ASAP.
