The SOAPnote Project

A SOAP note is the basic unit of medical documentation.  “SOAP” stands for Subjective Objective Assessment Plan.  The four elements provide structure during a clinical visit and a narrative record after the encounter.

The SOAPnote Project is an effort to improve collaboration on note templates, checklists, and clinical calculators.
