Benefits

HerdmanHealth was founded by Dr. John Herdman, author of Global Criteria: The 12 Core Functions of the Substance Abuse Counselor and creator of the Herdman Assessment process. As the Clinical Director of Parallels, he knows what it takes to run a practice from all angles.

Easy to Use

It’s easy-to-use and requires almost no training. The guided form ensures a consistent assessment interview and that all topics were covered by the counselor.

Comprehensive

Practioners can easily conduct a comprehensive biopsychosocial patient risk and needs assessment along all six ASAM Criteria dimensions while determining The ASAM Criteria level of care recommendation

Exports to Microsoft Word

HerdmanHealth can be export a completed Assessment to a Microsoft Word file that you can then modify with  before saving for your records or submitting it to the referrer.  

Saves Time & Money

HerdmanHealth guides providers through the interview and marks where there are issues. It then generates a consistent, professional narrative. This means less time is spent on paperwork and more on patients.

Great for Sole Practioners

Sole practitioners can use HerdmanHealth within their own private practice or even when contracted by other facilities. People outside your practice won’t see assessments of other patients.

Fantastic for Facilities

Practices with a few or more practitioners can designate an administrator who can manage users, see everyone’s assessments, and keep track of billing.

What our Customers are Saying

“I find that using the HAF greatly increases how effectively I can gather information across multiple report types. I have incorporated the HAF in all of my Substance Use evaluations, Initial Diagnostic Interviews, and, Sex Offender Assessments that need written reports.”

“With the HAF I feel that I gather all of the correct historical information so I can produce reports that will meet my client’s needs!”

Troy Heath

“I recently attended a required substance use report writing workshop. I could not count the times where I said, “The HAF does that for me!” I even found that at times the HAF did a more thorough job than what the instructors were asking for. Thank you for creating a way to make this process easier and more user friendly!”

Over my 46 years of experience in counseling and running a mental health and addiction center, I found that a streamlined approach to assessment makes all the difference. Counselors are happy feeling supported in their assessment process. Less time is spent on the tedious tasks of gathering a patient’s history and reporting on what was learned. Using the HAF is a win-win for all.
