Is it for me?

Should I chart?

According to Massage Magazine "Everybody in the massage business should SOAP chart."

Are these the right SOAP Notes for me?

Relaxation Massage, Wellness Massage

If you perform exclusively relaxation or wellness massages, you might find that WinCity Massage SOAP Notes 2004 offers SOAP Notes that are much more elaborate than what you really need. If you decide to use WinCity Massage SOAP Notes to record relaxation massage SOAP notes, take a look at the SOAP, Wellness and HxTxC Charts page to see how we suggest that you use it.

Medical Massage, Clinical Massage, Therapeutic Massage, Injury Rehabilitation, Treatment Work

If you perform medical massages, clinical massages, therapeutic massages, orthopedic massages, injury rehabilitation, or treatment work, you need to write detailed SOAP notes: they demonstrate that each one of your patients has a medical condition and that your treatments are appropriate and effective. They also help you comply with health care standards such as charting every interaction with your clients and submitting progress reports to the referring health care providers on a regular basis. WinCity Massage SOAP Notes was designed for you. 

Insurance billing

If you bill insurances, "documentation is the key to getting paid for time and codes used, along with following the prescriptions written by treating or authorized physicians" according to Vivian Madison-Mahoney, author of the Comprehensive Guide to Insurance Billing for Massage Professionals. WinCity Massage SOAP Notes was designed to help you record the documentation you need.

How hard is it to use WinCity Massage SOAP Notes?

Typically, massage practitioners report that, like with any new software, it takes some time for them to get used to WinCity Massage SOAP Notes. Once they get used to the program they find that it is very easy to use and  that it creates very good notes.

How long does it take to get used to the program?

After using WinCity Massage SOAP Notes to record your notes for five sessions for one client, you should feel very comfortable with the program. If you were already taking very detailed SOAP notes before you started using WinCity Massage SOAP Notes, that is all there is to it.

Most medical massage therapists are used to writing much simpler SOAP notes than what WinCity Massage SOAP Notes allows. If that is your case, we suggest that you start by using WinCity Massage SOAP Notes to produce SOAP notes that have about the same level of detail as what you are used to. For instance, you could  limit yourself during the first five sessions to filling in:

  •  a few of the boxes in the “Symptoms” section,

  •  the “Palpation” and the “Modalities” sections,

  •  the “modality” and “purpose” boxes of the "Plan" section.

This should produce SOAP notes that suit your immediate needs and allow you to quickly learn your way around WinCity Massage SOAP Notes.

After you have used WinCity Massage SOAP Notes to record such SOAP Notes for five sessions, you can then start learning to produce more detailed SOAP notes. Start asking new clients for more details about their symptoms. Once you are comfortable with producing detailed symptom descriptions, you can start asking your clients about their Activities of Daily Living. Once you are comfortable with the Activities of Daily Living, you will find that the Assessment section is pretty easy to fill. 

You might have to read a SOAP Notes book or take a SOAP Notes class

You wouldn't expect medical billing software to turn you instantly into a medical billing specialist. The same can be said about WinCity Massage SOAP Notes 2004: it won't turn you instantly into a SOAP notes expert.

If you currently dread writing SOAP notes, WinCity Massage SOAP Notes is not going to ease your condition. So if you have the SOAP notes writing blues, contact your AMTA chapter, or your local massage schools and ask them where to find a good SOAP Notes class. Take a class and find other massage practitioners that are learning to take SOAP Notes. Like most things worth doing, writing SOAP notes takes practice. And having friends and colleagues with whom to practice will make the whole process much more enjoyable. Once you feel up to speed writing the SOAP notes, you can consider again whether or not to buy WinCity Massage SOAP Notes.

What about accounting, billing, marketing, and scheduling?

WinCity Massage SOAP Notes 2004 focuses on doing one thing very well: massage SOAP notes.
