Insight Notes - notes for health professionals

Insight Notes

**As featured in the American Psychological Association’s Monitor on Psychology**

Insight Notes simply & intuitively provides HIPAA-compliant & encrypted note-taking for therapists & other health professionals.

Designed to meet the needs of fee-for-service professionals, Insight Notes automatically organizes your notes on a per-client or per-project basis. You can quickly & easily see all of your notes at a glance.

To facilitate legal/HIPAA compliance, secure backup & encrypted exporting of notes occurs via our remote servers, which are available for a low monthly fee. New subscribers receive a 30-day free trial. If you don't want or need this service, you can always print out your notes via AirPrint.



- Use the onscreen iPad keyboard, an external keyboard, or dictate your notes.
- Use a stylus or your finger to draw & write. Apple Pencil works perfectly!
- Use the iPad camera to scan a page into your notes.

Save headings & text for frequently-used notes. Or, save images of forms and checklists as custom templates, and write/draw on them as-needed.

Organized the way you work: by date, & within client/project folders.

All records are AES-256 encrypted. Records stored on the remote backup server are encrypted, too. No one has access to your records in unencrypted format.

Insight Notes allows the simultaneous exporting of multiple files in PDF format, viewable on any computer or device. You aren't tied to a Mac or PC.

(Sorry - no external PDF importing
¯\\_(ツ)_/¯ )

Subscribers: if you lose your iPad you don't lose your notes.

Users who subscribe to the backup & encrypted exporting service automatically have an agreement that meets HIPAA requirements.

Your records are stored & encrypted on your iPad.

Subscribers: simply select notes from within your records. Insight Notes organizes & securely delivers your records to whomever you wish.

When you elect to "complete" a note, the contents are automatically imported onto letterhead with your signature & contact information.

What's new in version 1.5.6
Dear Colleagues,

1.5.6 is a patch release that fixes an exporting bug.

We now have support for TouchID, Apple Pencil, and a new drawing/writing experience for everyone!

Our newest version of Insight Notes features big improvements for users who write/draw their notes*, and for all users who want to capture forms and fill them in on-screen:

- If you draw/write on-screen you can now choose three different pen tip widths, as well as a choice of black, blue, or red ink.

- Your pen strokes are now smoother than ever before.

- We now support Apple Pencil, which means that iPad Pro users who have an Apple Pencil will see that on-screen writing is akin to writing on a real piece of paper. Your Apple Pencil will record the smallest pen strokes and will respond to changes in pressure. In short: it really works.

- This also means that there are significant improvements to your ability to use the custom drawing templates feature. You can use your iPad's rear-facing camera to capture an image of a form and save it as a template for future use. After you have done that you can call up that form for use with any of your clients and fill it out on-screen. If you have an Apple Pencil you can fill out detailed checklists. Your iPad now works as a digital clipboard.

- TouchID is now supported, too. If you have an iPad Pro you can implement TouchID for 72-hours at a stretch. (We still require you to re-enter your encryption code every 72-hours, so please don't forget your encryption code.)

Please remember that if you are a backup subscriber we encourage you to use the encrypted exporting service to export your notes database to yourself. You can do so as often as you wish and we encourage you to do so on a regular basis. Redundancy is a very good thing.

As always, we value your feedback. In fact, we pour over each email we receive to see how we can better support your clinical work. If you have any questions, comments, or concerns please email us directly at

We respond to each and every email, and we do so as quickly as possible. Email is the best way to give feedback because app reviews take a while to appear and we have no way to respond to app store reviews. We will continue to do everything possible to address your concerns and fix bugs as we become aware of them. We deeply appreciate your support.

If you want to leave us a positive review it really helps; we have a little celebration every time we get a nice review. More importantly, it helps other colleagues who are curious if Insight Notes can facilitate their work, too.

Kind regards from all of us at Insight Notes.

*A special thank you and recognition goes to the good people at Milestone Made, creators of Loose Leaf for iPad, for their assistance incorporating the powerful JotUI drawing engine. They couldn't have been more skilled, helpful or courteous. Thanks!
