Read Only SOAPware
As of February 28, 2018, SOAPware will revert to a “read-only” mode.
The above message will be presented to the user upon log in to SOAPware's "read-only" mode. This message explains the functionality that will be seen when using the "read-only" mode of SOAPware. As explained in this message, when logged in to SOAPware, the user will see all documents and chart sections as "locked" or grayed out. The user will only be able to read, print, and export information from SOAPware.
The following lesson provides some additional details on the "read-only" mode of SOAPware.
Technical Support will no longer be available to troubleshoot errors or issues which may occur in SOAPware after February 28, 2018.

The clinic will need to ensure that the database is secured per HIPAA regulations in some other manner as the system will no longer require User IDs and Passwords to log in and the Security Administration section will no longer be accessible.
