About Blink Session

Blink Session is a video conferencing solution for online therapists, teletherapists, & other telehealth providers which facilitates online interaction & content sharing. Designed specifically for speech pathologists, counsellors, occupational therapists, and educational tutors, Blink Session offers the tools to effectively communicate with clients, automate day-to-day tasks, collaborate using interactive content, and track progress.

In order to aid with administrative duties, Blink Session facilitates the scheduling of appointments and provides automation of reminders, recurring appointments, invitations, and timezone conversions. Clients can log in to the self service portal to view their upcoming appointments, converted to their timezone, along with any notes, content, invoices, pending payments, and reminders. Businesses can generate invoices using Blink Session, with data on appointment time and attendance automatically pulled from the system, and clients can view and pay their invoices online within the self-service portal.

Blink Session offers a range of interactive learning tools which can be utilized during video sessions to aid with communication including an interactive whiteboard, screen sharing, YouTube video embedding, a document camera, and more. The in-session document archive allows tutors and therapists to choose from an in-built database of personally imported or existing Blink Session resources including flash cards, PDFs, games, powerpoints, documents, and more, without having to leave the call window. Notes can also be added to resources to save scores or comments for future sessions or other tutors.

Key benefits of Blink Session

  • Add, view, or edit SOAP notes both inside and outside of sessions to refer back to in later interactions or to aid others in the event of a change in tutors or therapists. Goals can be set and tracked throughout recurring sessions and notes can viewed at any time.

  • Access the in-session resource and document archive to add interactive games, videos, documents, presentations, and more to sessions, and see which resources have already been utilized in previous sessions. Resources are stored within the cloud system so users can access them no matter which device they’re using.

  • Observe other tutors/therapists using the observation feature which allows users to join a session as an observer during training or evaluations. The observed user is notified and both parties can communicate during the session via a private chat window.

  • Use the interactive whiteboard and screen sharing tools to make sessions more interactive by drawing on resources, highlighting key points, and typing over content. Screen sharing allows both student and tutor to interact with the same content simultaneously.

  • Benefit from administration features including session scheduling, reminders, invitations, invoice creation, payment processing, client logins, and more. Blink Session is HIPAA compliant to ensure all data is safe and secure.

    I tried Blink as a trail for one person as the license agreement for other staff is costly. So over the time period it seemed to meet my needs as a speech therapist but after using the platform I found spending money for additional tools for intervention and the monthly cost was not worth the hassles of interacting with the support services, who to me were not friendly. They gave the appearance that they were during my company a favor and did not need my business.

    Pros

    Very well organized site, easy to manipulate within the platform, HIPPA compliance, Youtube accessible for shared screen, Match games capabilities interactions for clients

    Cons

    Limited in house apps for the monthly fees. Read the fine print many of the customer service(CS) issue that are usually granted from other companies Blink CS is always in their favor, they take no responsibility if anything goes wrong it is the consumers fault or the network or browsers. The try and keep any items that you purchase as theirs property, even money that you have as a credit. Limited client interaction. The internet quality is low compared to other platforms, not being able to access tech dept while in session.

    Response from Blink Session

    Thank you for your review Jessica. Sorry we were not able to meet your needs as you expected. We are always very responsive to customers and try to help when we can.

    Blink Review

    Reviewed on 2019/10/23

    Pros

    I like that I can quickly and easily download YouTube videos and screen share with my students with this platform.

    Cons

    I do not like that I am not in control of what and how my students view the materials I am sharing. I work with young children who often do not have the language or understanding on what they should be seeing. I have to assume they are seeing what I am seeing and how I am seeing it. A adult will come along and notice something is amiss and fix it.

    I do not like the controls for drawing and clicking and dragging. They are awkward, cumbersome, and often go haywire and scribble over the screen.

    Response from Blink Session

    Thank you for your review, Christine. We are glad to help you learn how to use the system if you contact Help. The problems you mention are not actually related to our software but simply the nature of doing video conferencing. There is no way for you to see things exactly as your clients see them, as this would require you to be with them. If you have used another video conferencing platform in the past, its possible you experienced the same problems without knowing it. Either way, we are here to help.
