SOAPware derives its name from the SOAP format used for encounter documentation (i.e. Subjective, Objective, Assessment and Plan).
In SOAPware, the legacy format for encounters is for the Plan to be further divided into two (2) fields:
The Subjective section will include the history or information offered by the patient.
The Objective section will include findings discovered by clinical examination.
The Assessment section will include the diagnoses addressed during the encounter.
The Plan section will include the plan for the patients care going forward.
The Medications section will include medications prescribed during the current visit.
The Follow Up section will include all patient follow-up instructions.
