SOAPwriter Tool

Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page

The SOAPwriter function is on of the most powerful in ezChartWriter.  Located as subsections of most of the Exam Tools as well as a stand-alone tool found in the left-side TOOLBOX on the MAIN EXAM SHEET, the SOAPwriter allows you to pick and choose from among hundreds of pre-formed text sentences.




For instance, to indicate a patient has a symptom of asthenopia, you would click on the Symptoms heading, the choose Visual Symptoms, then choose "Asthenopia".  The text will be pasted into the SOAP note.  The sentences are designed to flow like natural language.  And, if you don't like how a sentence reads, just change it in the PREVIEW box or in the SOAP note itself. Unchecking a box removes the text from the SOAP field. You can also directly edit the text that is entered within the SOAP field.




It is possible to customize the text with the SOAPwriter editing tool.
