How to Create a SOAP Note in 15 Seconds with ChiroTouch
- ChiroTouch lets chiropractors chart patient visits in real time in just 15 seconds.
- Customizable macros do most of the charting work with just a few clicks.
- SOAP note functionality is just one part of ChiroTouch’s integrated chiropractic practice management software that streamlines the flow of patient information from check-in to check-out.
- ChiroTouch lets chiropractors spend less time on documentation and more time with patients.
The single most important activity that goes on in a chiropractic office is, of course, the actual chiropractic care done by the providers. While everyone has an important role to play in the office’s day-to-day operations, it all starts with the provider administering care.
Keeping that in mind, it makes sense that any chiropractic office would want to do everything possible to make it easier for providers to provide. In order to take comprehensive and compliant notes, efficient software is a must-have in today’s chiropractic office. And when it comes to SOAP notes, nothing beats ChiroTouch’s EasyTouch macros for efficiency and ease of use.
Real-Time Charting For Real-Time Patients
Modern chiropractic record-keeping assumes patients receive a different kind of treatment than those encountered at a once-a-year physical exam by general practitioners.
As such, these patients require a slightly different approach than your average primary care physician uses. While primary care is critical to a patient’s health, ChiroTouch helps you manage the many other aspects of a patient’s physicality that chiropractors specialize in that are equally important to a patient’s well-being and quality of life.
Take Notes and Documentation With Just a Few Clicks
ChiroTouch streamlines the flow of patient information from sign-in to exam. This allows DCs to create Medicare-compliant SOAP notes from their iPads in less than 15 seconds — while still in the exam room with a patient. Check out the 38-second video below to see how it’s done.
Breaking Down Actual User Experience
For a more in-depth look at how ChiroTouch simplifies the creation of SOAP notes, watch below as Dr. Ron Oberstein (a real-life chiropractor) enters SOAP notes/documentation for a family of FIVE patients within a few minutes.
Here’s a closer look at how ChiroTouch makes it happen.
EasyTouch Macros: No Cookie-Cutters
ChiroTouch’s templates allow the user to enter SOAP and other clinical notations quickly and seamlessly. Providers no longer need to input data for every single patient; they only need to enter information specific to that visit.
Some other platforms call this “boilerplate” text, but ChiroTouch views it differently. That’s because with ChiroTouch’s CTProvider dashboard, providers can customize every aspect of how they take documentation.
Specifically, it allows for special template-like text entries called macros. Macros are powerful shortcuts linked to a single button. These buttons are 100% customizable based on a practice’s needs.
With just a few clicks, an entire SOAP note can be built in seconds, then filled in with a specific patient’s information and exam notes. Macros standardize record-keeping, ensuring chiropractic notation that is both accurate and compliant.
Think of it this way: These 15-second SOAP notes provide the structure and prompting so your providers know exactly what information needs to be entered to complete CMS-compliant chiropractic notation — quickly and effortlessly.
What Can Providers Do With ChiroTouch?
A better question to ask is, “What can’t providers do with ChiroTouch?”
Not only does ChiroTouch’s software integrate seamlessly into your practice’s workflow, it also syncs patient-entered information from check-ins and outcome assessments to make compliance convenient and simple.
Not only that, ChiroTouch also comes preloaded with documentation templates that are specific to case types, techniques, therapies, and all chiropractic diagnosis codes — all ready to go with just a couple clicks.
Making It Your Own
We understand that every practice is different. That means the software you choose for your practice has to be quickly and easily customizable to fit your unique needs.
In addition to the comprehensive documentation templates included with every ChiroTouch subscription, providers and their authorized colleagues will be able to enter their own customized templates that can then be added to chiropractic notes via our neat, clean, drag-and-drop interface.
More Patients = More Revenue ≠ Skimping on Chiropractic Care
We all know that the more patients a provider sees, the more money they bring in for the practice. But the best providers don’t want to boost their numbers at the expense of the quality of care they provide to their patients.
That’s why ChiroTouch is so exciting! It liberates providers from many hours of charting and paperwork without compromising the quality of their chiropractic notes and care. Your practice will realize all the benefits of a paperless office, including cost savings, better security and compliance, smooth flow of information from sign-in to billing — and time savings for everyone in your practice.
When providers can spend less time on documentation and more time focused on their patients, it improves quality of care and patient satisfaction. It also streamlines the clinical notation that other departments, like billing, rely on to ensure the practice is paid appropriately for the services it provides.
An Integrated Solution Is Your Best Solution
ChiroTouch is dedicated to helping chiropractic providers focus on the professional medical services they provide — in other words, what they do best.
We know that documentation is a big part of both providing and being compensated for these services, and that’s where our expertise can help you concentrate on your expertise.
You no longer have to spend hours on clinical documentation. ChiroTouch allows you to record your SOAP notes in real time.
