When you are using BestNotes Telehealth, you will have access to the "Telehealth Usage Report." This data is collected from the telehealth appointments in your calendar. If you use the "End Session" button within the calendar appointment, this information for that appointment will immediately be reflected in this report. If you do not use the "End Session" button the information for that appointment will not be reflected in the report until the following day. This report can be found by navigating to the "Reports" tab on the bottom left corner of BestNotes, and selecting "Telehealth Usage Report" from the "Report Type."

Report breakdown

Once you have opened up the report, you will use the top portion to select the information you would like to see in the report, such as the dates, facilities, providers, and appointment types. You will also have the option to only see appointments that have been completed. Once you have made your selections, select "Generate report." This example will show the information for completed appointments in September of 2020, including all facilities, providers, and appointment types.

The top header in the appointment will display the number of sessions, participant minutes, and total cost. This shows that there have been 10 completed sessions, with a total of 10 participant minutes. The cost to date for the month of September will be $0.10. This portion of the report gives you an "at a glance" view of what your telehealth cost will be for  the period selected. The charges are based on the active minutes a participant is connected, and there may be differences between the duration and the participant minutes.
