IN THIS ARTICLE:
Overview: entries your clients can track
Healthie enables clients to log food, selfies, workouts, metrics (incl., and other health information that you may want to review. The ability for clients to journal can be turned on / off by you, and managed on a per-feature basis based on the care that you are providing. Fields are optional, and can be included / excluded by the client.
- Food: Clients can take pictures of meals, indicate hungriness and healthiness, special settings for eating disorders, write comments, write a description, and a reflection.
- Journal / Reflection
- Selfies / "Healthies": Clients can take pictures of themselves and watch progress unfold over time.
- Workouts: Clients can log their workouts, including type, length, and intensity.
- Workout types include: Running, Walking, Yoga, Meditation, Weights, Swimming, Cycling, Other
- Metrics: Clients can log metrics that providers request, most commonly including weight, BMR, waist circumference. You can also create custom metrics, which may include measures like Sleep (hours), Stress level (rating 1-10), and other numerical scales.

The image above is of the CLIENT dashboard view. When your client logs into Healthie, this is the main screen they will see, and how they will be able to log their entries from the web portal.
At this time, clients cannot upload videos to their entries.
Where you can view your client's entries
- Home Feed: This will show all of your clients most recent activity on your homepage
- Journal: In the client portal, you can see the specific client's activity including food journal, metrics, workouts, and selfies
- Reports: You can generate reports for a clients' appointment history and total activity for things like the number of journal entries, goals posted, comments, and more. Learn more about the Client Activity Report.
If your client's journal entry has come from Apple Health, Google Fit, Fitbit, or another integration, a tag will appear next to the journal entry indicating that the entry came from a sync from an external device.
Engaging with clients through journal entries
As a provider, you have the ability to comment on client journal entries, as well as provide "quick reactions" to posts.
You can provide feedback and support directly on a client's journal entry with a comment.
- Clients can enable/disable whether they receive a notification when you leave a comment, by logging into their web platform > Notifications, and enabling/disabling "A provider writes a comment on a journal entry" - This is turned on by default for clients
In lieu of providing a detailed comment, quick reactions may be useful to acknowledge that you've seen a post and to provide non-verbal feedback to guide a client
- Clients can enable/disable whether they receive a notification when you leave a quick reaction, by logging into their web platform > Notifications, and enabling/disabling "A provider adds an emoji to a journal entry" - This is turned on by default for clients
Adjusting settings for client tracking
You can set defaults for what you'd like clients to track. Learn how to adjust these defaults on the global, group, and individual level here.
