Do you charge your patients thousands of dollars up front?

Joel Friedlaender·

I think it’s crazy that Practice Management Software companies are still getting away with charging you thousands of dollars upfront to use their system. Can you imagine what would happen if you decided to charge your patients $5000 upfront for all of the treatments you plan to do with them over the next few years?

Why has it become so acceptable in the software industry? Software companies will tell you that they have spent years developing their software, and that is what you are paying for. Maybe I am mistaken, but haven’t you spent years studying and practicing your profession? Why is it any different? The answer is that it isn’t. The reason Practice Management Software companies are charging you so much money upfront is because they can.

So what makes us so different at Cliniko. why do we charge just a monthly fee with no upfront costs or contracts? We trust in the value that Cliniko adds to your business and we trust that you’ll love using Cliniko. We charge just a monthly subscription fee for the duration you use our software. We think thats fairer, and also much easier for new practices that are getting up and running.

We value integrity in all aspects of our business, including our pricing model.

Cliniko is amazing practice management software for healthcare businesses. Visit to see for yourself.
