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 history or information offered by the patient.
The findings discovered by clinical examination.
The diagnoses addressed during the encounter.
The plans for the patient's care going forward.
The medications prescribed.
The follow-up instructions.
