SOAP Note Documentation
The problem with most of the computerized SOAP note programs that are out there is that there are 2 sets of faulty assumptions:
Faulty Assumption #1: The programmers assume that
chiropractors know how to
Faulty Assumption #2: Chiropractors assume that the
programmers know how we're
supposed to document.
After evaluating countless electronic SOAP note programs on the market and being quite underwhelmed, I was approached by a software company in Florida that has been producing and selling software for chiropractors for the last 25 years. They asked if I wanted to customize a SOAP note program they had and put my own twist on it. After more than a year and a half of working on it, I gave it a run - and even I was amazed at what I was able to do!
I call it "Got Documentation SOAP Note Program." When designing it, it looked through 3 different lenses:
1. I've been in practice since 1987 and I've talked with a ton
of chiropractors all over the country. I have a good feel
for the way most of us flow in our offices.
2. I teach documentation seminars and have a thorough
understanding of the various documentation
requirements and nuances.
3. I review records and perform IMEs for insurance
companies for PI and WC cases. I know what
they're looking for and I understand their perspective.
