How to Write SOAP Notes

SOAP notes are a clinical method used by healthcare professionals to simplify and organize a patient's information. Healthcare practitioners use the SOAP note format to record information in a consistent and structured way.

The SOAP note format helps health practitioners use their clinical reasoning to assess, diagnose, and treat patients utilizing the information presented. SOAP notes are a critical information source for the patient's health status and a communication tool for different health professionals.

The SOAP note template structure acts as a checklist, enabling practitioners to capture the information consistently while also providing an index to retrieve historical information if required.The SOAP note structure was first theorized by American Physician Lawrence Weed more than 50 years ago. He wanted to provide clinicians with a template for specific tasks while providing a framework for evaluating information. Today, SOAP notes are considered the US Healthcare standard for capturing clinical information across healthcare professions.

What is SOAP Note format?

SOAP is an acronym that stands for subjective, objective, assessment, and plan. The elements of a SOAP note are:
Subjective (S): Focused on the client's information regarding their experience and perceptions of symptoms, needs, and progress toward treatment goals.
Objective (O): Includes observable, objective data ("facts") regarding the client, like elements of a mental status exam or other screening tools, historical information, medications prescribed, x-rays results, or vital signs.
Assessment (A): Includes the clinician's assessment of the available subjective and objective information. The assessment summarizes the client's status and progress toward treatment plan goals.
Plan (P): Records the actions to be taken due to the clinician's assessment of the member's current status, such as assessments, follow‐up activities, referrals, and changes in the treatment.

There are plenty of reasons to keep progress notes; these are just some of them;
Progress notes are a contract between the client and their clinician. They are where treatment goals and treatment plans can be discussed and decided on before they are put into a document to track the treatment progression. Progress notes provide a means of communication within and between care teams. They enable healthcare workers who provide care for the same client to know what occurred in the last session or their last acute episode—allowing them to provide the most appropriate and accurate treatment for their presenting issue.
