We are very pleased to announce that Power Diary is an endorsed partner of the Australian Association of Psychologists (AAPi).
Who is the AAPi, and Why Partner With Them?
The Australian Association of Psychologists Inc is the leading not-for-profit membership association for psychologists in Australia. It is a values-driven national peak body for psychologists that aims to promote the rich diversity of psychological practice in Australia.
Formed in 2010 by a group of passionate psychologists with a clear mission to represent all psychologists across the country, the AAPi has been working hard to increase access to the vital mental health services psychologists provide and to increase the funding and support necessary to make this happen. You can read more about their guiding principles here.
Why did the AAPi Partner with Power Diary?
As well as supporting psychologists and community members through a range of advocacy activities, AAPi also supports their members by only endorsing the products they fully believe will improve and empower their members. Therefore, as an official AAPi Endorsed Partner, you can have complete confidence in Power Diary knowing that it has been thoroughly appraised and approved.
Since establishing over 12 years ago, Power Diary has developed strong alignments with the psychology profession, particularly with co-founder, Damien, being a registered psychologist since 2003. Together with his brother, Paul, a seasoned Technology Entrepreneur, they have merged their respective fields of expertise to provide software that empowers practice owners, their teams, and their communities.
The features and attributes which stood out to AAPi as most beneficial to its members include:
Security & Compliance as a Top Priority
Data security is of utmost importance to us, so shortcuts are never taken on its storage, backup, or protection. We use only the best security and privacy technologies available, including 2-factor authentication, plus, the connection between a browser and our servers is protected, so any data transferred is encrypted using 256 bit SSL technology.
Power Diary is compliant with all relevant legislative and regulatory requirements within Australia, as well as the other main markets in which we operate, namely, New Zealand, the UK and Europe, South Africa, USA, and Canada.
Integrated Telehealth Technology
Our intuitive telehealth technology is fully integrated, making video calls extremely simple for both practitioners and clients to use (including screen share functionality). With no logins or additional downloads required, it provides a simple yet secure peer-to-peer connection, with end-to-end encryption. Power Diary’s Telehealth is fully compliant with all health standards, so there’s no need for third-party software or apps.
Dynamic Online Forms
Power Diary’s online forms enable psychologists to reach new levels of efficiency and professionalism by streamlining endless data collection processes. Start with a template or create your own from scratch, our secure forms can be customised with your branding and sent via email or SMS, with responses (including signatures) automatically recording within the client file.
Treatment Note Templates Designed for Psychologists
Specialist psychology note templates drastically reduce the time spent writing up session notes. Psychologists can choose from our library of pre-loaded, customisable templates, including initial intake assessments, EMDR session notes, and more general SOAP and progress notes, or, if you’d prefer, create your own from scratch.
At Power Diary, we endeavor to integrate with the most useful tools for your practice, and in doing so, subsequently minimising the time spent switching between various applications. Our most popular integrations include Medicare and DVA, enabling practitioners to submit bulk billed or patient claims directly through Power Diary. Other favourites include Stripe and Xero. You can find our full list of integrations here.
Online Bookings and Secure Payments
Practitioners can benefit from reduced administrative costs by allowing clients to book appointments online via our free client portal, at a time that suits them. You can even customise your portal with your own branding. Make the most of this feature by adding a booking link to your website, Facebook page, or emails.
For added convenience, practitioners can choose to allow (or require!) clients to pay via credit card at the time of booking. With Power Diary’s strict adherence to international security standards set by the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCI DSS), credit card payments can be processed via a secure, validated integration with Stripe Inc.
