Billing Chiropractic Medical Software is an important though initially painful upgrade for every Chiropractic clinic. More than important, essential.
Whilst it may seem obvious to those who have made the conversion, the fact of the matter is that there are still a great many Chiropractic practices that still have no Chiropractic Soap Note Software, no Chiropractic Practice Management Software and even no Chiropractic Office Software.
Whilst even five years ago this computer screen may have been intimidating to many chiropractors, today no streamlined office should be without some form of Chiropractic Office Software.
Scheduling appointments, billing patients and even the move to paperless SOAP notes becomes so much easier.
But not without pain! Getting all the patient details onto the computer is a mission in itself, and the move to transfer years and years of notes to the computer does not come without effort, a lot of it.
Most Chiropractic clinics today probably use the SOAP note format to standardize their clinical records. This is especially true in the multi-doctor practice where the Chiropractic Soap note software is vital to improve communication amongst those caring for the patient; quickly, seamlessly and efficiently.
SOAP is an acronym:
S: SUBJECTIVE: Low back pain radiating to the side of the right foot.
O: OBJECTIVE: EHL weakness. Right L4 fixation...
A: ASSESSMENT: Grade III L4-L5 medial disc protrusion.
P: PLAN: MR, Three days bed rest, no sitting, ice, adjust L: L4 PLS-m, rehab.
Without a doubt, SOAP notes facillitate beter Chiropractic management when used in the patient records for review and quality control.
