When the client completes the history sections of the HAF remotely or prior to the assessment interview, the counselor saves time by not asking the same questions and not taking the time to type in the client’s answers. Some answers to questions are auto-entered and can be changed by the client or counselor based on the individual’s personal history. Also, a quality narrative report of 4-6 pages is prepared at the click of a button saving a great deal of report writing time.
Time is money. The HAF will save anywhere from 1-2 hours of a counselor’s time thus allowing additional billable hours to be scheduled or other essential services to be completed.
