Picture of Diana ThompsonHands Heal Electronic Health Records was developed specifically for massage therapists by the foremost authority on the subject, Diana L. Thompson, who literally wrote the book on charting for this specialized field, drawing upon over 30 years of experience to develop this easy-to-navigate mobile workspace for massage therapists. Diana created Hands Heal Electronic Health Records to deliver solutions specifically aimed at her peers.

As a past president of the Massage Therapy Foundation, research consultant for Group Health Research Institute and frequent contributor to Massage & Bodywork magazine, Diana understands the value of data and knows how to translate those measurements in accessible ways. She designed Hands Heal EHR to pinpoint the critical information that demonstrates the benefits of massage therapy, to use that information to enhance client care, and to build bridges within healthcare teams. With this EHR, professionals can easily measure critical data and demonstrate progress to clients, third-party payors and allied healthcare massage therapists alike.
