Why SimpleClinic?

See A Need, Fill A Need

"SimpleClinic was created because I needed a single platform that allowed me to streamline and automate my workflow and provide a single login to access all my client information. Since its public release, SimpleClinic has changed the way Nats, Nuts and Herbies practice. Offering practitioners the flexibility to do business on their terms and allowing them to practice from anywhere, anytime on any device!"

Hi! I'm Marianne, a qualified and experienced Naturopath, Nutritionist, Herbalist, and co-founder of SimpleClinic.

marianne fernance founder simpleclinic practice management for naturopatsWhen I first started my own natural medicine clinic in 2009, I was using many different systems to try to achieve an efficient and proactive workflow. But it wasn’t working! I found myself double-handing, something I really didn’t like doing, nor had time for! Time spent managing my business meant less time helping my patients, and I wanted to help more people to live healthy and vibrant lives.

I needed a system to support my practice. One that was efficient, easy to use, and would also allow me the work/life balance I wanted! I trialled many practice management systems, but none fit my requirements, nor had the workflow I needed in my practice. Those that came close, often had gaps and didn't support the unique needs and challenges of a naturopathic clinic.

Fortunately, my hubby is an IT specialist and software developer, so I put him to work! He created a practice management software that was purely focussed on the requirements of a simple and efficient naturopathic clinic in one application as well as being flexible and easy to use.

I'm a HUGE Disney fan, and the movie Robots inspired me, those who've seen it know the saying from Bigweld “See A Need, Fill A Need” - (Robots, 2005) and this is exactly why SimpleClinic came to fruition in 2010. There was a need in the natural medicine industry that was not being filled.

Soon enough, other practitioners started asking me about SimpleClinic. As a result, we decided to make SimpleClinic available to other naturopaths, nutritionists, and herbal medicine practitioners throughout Australia and New Zealand and launched in 2017.


Hi, I'm Eric, software developer and co-founder of SimpleClinic.

I started coding when I was 8 years old on an Amstrad CPC64. Cutting edge technology for the early 80s.

The first program I ever wrote drew an ASCII art version of the Playboy Bunny logo. Obviously my mum was not impressed. I, on the other hand, was hooked and went onto study a Bachelor of Computer Science before starting work in the IT industry.

I started my first part time job in the IT industry at 16 and the rest is history. In 2006 I met Marianne at my workplace Datacom when she joined the company and in 2008 we both resigned our positions to chase our dreams.

I am a huge fan of Star Wars, technology, science fiction novels and all things nerdy!

We are a small team and especially proud to be the only Australian practice management platform serving Nats, Nuts and Herbies who have the best interests of our praccies, having bootstrapped our business with no investors to answer to! Our mission is to help fellow praccies to streamline, automate, manage and grow their business more efficiently, freeing up their time to do what they love and do best!



The goal of SimpleClinic was to create a complete, integrated practice management system which covered all aspects of a natural medicine clinic, including:


  • Being easy to use and improving efficiency.
  • Having a logical workflow through the consultation process from start to finish.
  • Allowing in-clinic and online bookings.
  • Recording of clinical notes and treatment plans.
  • Handling of prescriptions, and recording of payments and invoicing.
  • Management of inventory (nutritional and herbal supplements and liquids).
  • Reporting and marketing integrations.
  • Allowing you to create packages and subscriptions for your programs and services.
  • Allowing you to manage your workshops and events including registration and payment all in the one application.
  • Allowing you to practice from multiple different locations.
