MHConcierge survey of MN psychologists about fees, the saga continues

MHConcierge survey of MN psychologists about fees, the saga continues

Once again, MHConcierge has to apologize for a delay in posting the results of the survey – promised several weeks ago, but delayed due to the need to research some unanticipated issues that emerged.  It looks like this all is going to get worked out, and please check back on Monday, Nov. 20, as something should be posted then.

Survey of MN Psychologists and other professionals about technology in clinical practice

Survey of MN Psychologists and other professionals about technology in clinical practice

Thanks to the 122 colleagues who generously took the time to complete this survey. Three reported that they do not provide clinical mental health services in Minnesota. This means that 119 should have continued with the rest of the questions, but 120 colleagues took the rest of the survey – I guess that two non-clinical participants still wanted to contribute, which leaves us with perhaps a little less pure data, but I appreciate their participation.

Thanks to the Mental Health Professional (MHP) colleagues who completed the MHConcierge survey about billing practices.  We had 167 responses.  149 of the participants are psychologists, and we also had 3 social workers and 9 participants licensed by the Board of Behavioral Health and Therapy.  We aspire to have more responses, and more non-psychologist participants, for future surveys.

Survey about the MDH EHR Mandate, effective 1-1-15: results, discussion and resources.

First of all, thanks to all who participated in the survey and who provided helpful feedback about it. As of noon on Saturday, January 17, I have received 658 responses. This is a tremendous response. To provide some context, the Minnesota Mental Health Work Force Group sent out a survey, using much more resources (the work group had 36 members) and allowing more time for responses. They received 500 responses.
