About Us

Our Story

Luminello was founded by Ken Braslow, MD, after years of experiencing the hassles of EMRs that didn’t “think” the way he did in his daily practice. He needed a one-stop shop for all the essentials in running a psychiatry practice, a system that knows the nuances of mental health care, and one that is clean, simple, and fast. He found other EMRs to be way more complex than what he needed and painful to use, slowing down his daily routine. After much searching, he realized what he envisioned is what needed to be built, and Luminello was born.

Dr. Braslow set out to create an EMR for the mental health community, with friendly, responsive customer service at a reasonable price. He knew it needed to be designed based on his experience and the real-world private practice of other therapists, psychiatrists and counselors – in essence, an EMR that he would want to use in his everyday work (and he does!).

We hope you find Luminello to be a refreshing, valuable tool to help you run your private practice. And, read some of the Luminello reviews from current customers to hear what they have to say about their experience.

Emily Tejani, M.D., Child Psychiatrist San Francisco Bay Area, CA

I also love Luminello! Just switched over from Practice Fusion. As my practice grew I found it difficult to work efficiently while using Practice Fusion. The screen always felt too busy for the needs of a psych private practitioner. I had to click and change screens too often and couldn’t customize as much as I would have liked. Customer service was unresponsive (my help desk questions often went unanswered). Their super-bill feature was cumbersome. Since switching to Luminello I have been much happier and able to finish my work more quickly. Customer service is incredibly responsive!
