Introduction to Data Explorer


SOAPware Data Explorer is used to search through all patient charts and report the findings.  Search results can be used to generate many types of reports.  Some of the common types of reports that are run in Data Explorer include:

  • A SOAPnote medication search to search for all patients who have been prescribed a certain medication
  • A Summary diagnosis search to search for all patients who have a certain active diagnosis
  • A SOAPnote assessment search to search for all patients who have been diagnosed with a certain diagnosis
  • A lab value search to search for all patients that have a lab value within a specific range
  • A health maintenance search to search for all patients who have had health maintenance items performed with a specified time frame

*Note: Depending on the size of the users database, the search time can be lengthy.  We recommend that you do not perform a data explorer search during clinic hours.
