This is good for now, but will need revision after some suggested improvements.
1. Medical assistants will start doing the subjectives. This should eventually be supplemented by patient forms and direct data entry into the portal.
2. There should be one finish button instead of separate ones for each section of the soap note. The new ”______”( note button should also be removed.
3. Follow up date should be moved from work status (where it doesn’t belong) to the treatment plan part of the SOAP not where there is already a question about this.
4. The ICD 10 code should be merged with the assessment, and the orders should be merged with the plan.
