Overview

Use Scenario

SOAP Notes offer a standardized format for taking and tracking notes for integrated health and fitness services. Notes are generally grouped under four main headers:

  • Subjective - the reason the client is visiting and the opportunities they feel are relevant.
  • Objective - the measurable observations about the client (e.g., weight, vital signs, diagnostic test results, etc.).
  • Assessment - Service provider's interpretation of the subjective and objective information.
  • Plan - the details and steps that are to be done to remedy the issues.

SOAP Notes allow you to take notes and track progress in a standardized format for every client. Each note will be linked to a private booking, Service professionals and team members may add and review them from the Schedule and the client record based on Team Settings and permissions. 

 

Instructions for use

Before you Start

  • Only one note will be displayed per session/ private appointment.

Toggle ON the Allow view of SOAP Session Notes setting for only those staff that need access to VIEW SOAP notes but not edit.

Toggle ON as well Allow/Edit of SOAP Session Notes for those who will need to create, edit and duplicate SOAP notes. This is likely to be just your Fitness and Service professional who are taking the notes during their sessions.

Note* You cannot toggle ON Allow Edit without first also Toggling ON Allow View

Repeat these steps for all Access Groups that require View or View and Edit. Do not forget your Team members with a Custom Access setting as these will need adjusted individually on the Team members record.

Duplicating a previous SOAP Note

  1. Users may also click the Duplicate button and select from any past Session Note saved on the Client’s record and have those notes copied into this SOAP note. Advantages of this is to allow an easy continuance of previous notes and goals from session to session without requiring a full rewriting of your progress.

Cancelling and rescheduling appointments with a SOAP note

  1. When an appointment with a SOAP note is cancelled, the note will be deleted and the note will no longer appear in the client’s SOAP Notes History.
  2. When an appointment with a SOAP note is rescheduled, the note will remain attached to the appointment if:
  • the new appointment is the same session type, and
  • the new appointment is with the same instructor

If either of these are not met, the note will be deleted once the appointment is rescheduled.
