Laurie replied to Kim-Andre Akselsen Ulvestad's discussion What is required for Out-call based massage practice?
"The easiest way to comply with confidentiality issues while doing out-calls is to use a HIPPA compliant web APP or local software that can be easily carried in a laptop, tablet or smartphone. A few have been discussed on this forum, and a good web…"

Laurie replied to Katrina Augostini's discussion Choosing a massage school..... advice?
"For basic massage training, I chose the school that had hours that allowed me to continue working at my full time job. The tuition was very reasonable compared to other local schools because the school had a very busy massage clinic that subsidized…"

Laurie replied to Rob Smore's discussion Are you using electronic SOAP notes?
"Rob, I use an iPhone and iPad. The iPad is WiFi only so I use the phone app when Internet access is not available. Syncing between the devices is automatic with iCloud. I am not sure how much Soap Vault costs, but Eclectic's SOAP notes was very…"

"I am using SOAP notes app from Eclectic DNA. I have it on my phone and IPad. The syncing feature is really nice because I can enter notes on one device and it is immediately synced with the other. The developers are very open to suggestions and very…"

Laurie replied to Stephanie Garner, LMT's discussion Possible conflict with fellow therapist
"Jimswife is correct, the doctor should be responsible and discuss scheduling issues with the other therapist. Perhaps the doctor would hang a menu board in the office posting the hours and days each therapist is available. Patients would then know…"

Laurie replied to Natalie Wilmes's discussion November Contest??
"As written, I see this more as a self-serving, marketing/promotional tool, not a way to honor community volunteers. What qualifications are needed to be nominated and who is the judge? It could come off more like a business sponsored popularity…"

Laurie replied to Rachel Cordova's discussion Do you request the client's weight on intake form?
"Weight (and height, age and gender) are all great visual clues that help identify a client. In private practice, it is not an issue since clients are personally known, but when working in a busy spa, clinic or massage chain, this information makes…"

Laurie replied to Linda LePelley, RN, NMT's discussion RSD / CRPS
"Linda, could you post more information about RSD/CRPS. Would a client address it by another name? Is this something that would be diagnosed by a medical practitioner than referred to a massage therapist? Thanks."
